When will i start showing?

I'm 13 weeks now, i've always been very skinny and i'm not very tall.. my legs are bigger(& hate my skinny jeans) but my tummy is not quite as tight in my clothes yet. i am afraid i will not look 'as pregnant' as i had always hoped..

  • Every body is different. I didnt show till I was 8 months. Once that baby starts growing bigger you'll pop.

  • You will start to show just be patient. With my first I stuck out my belly I was so eager to look pregnant! lol With each of my 3 pregnancies though I hated the time when you look like you may be pregnant but you could also just be getting chubby. Be prepared for that:(

  • everyone is different I didnt show until late. WHen I was 9 moths people thought I might be 5 months. I didnt get that huge like other woman do. When I was 4 month pregnant I shows as much as some woman posted pics of them when the like 11 weeks. I just had a little bump, thes when I started to show. But people didnt look at me thinking shes pregnant.

  • Everyone and every pregnancy is different. You can't really anticipate how you'll carry or when you'll show based on body type. With my first, I didn't show until 5 months. And then I REALLY showed. I've always gotten a huge belly with each pregnancy. Some women don't have quite the belly that others have. My friend who is my height and close to my build barely had a belly at all. You can wear pregnancy shirts to increase the pregnant look if you are tired of just looking like you've put on weight. People will typically take a cue from that.

  • I was at least 5 or 6 months pregnant before I started really showing, before that I just looked fat.

  • With my first I didnt show up 6 months.. maybe a tiny bit but not much, up until 6 months I could still where all my normal clothes no problem. Everyones bodies are different and every pregnancy is different. My second pregnancy I showed at about 3 months...
