  • It depends on how thin you are. Some start showing early, others not until later. Normally around 20 weeks you'll see something even of others can't tell yet.

  • With my first I didn't really look preggers until 6-7 months. I'm on my 4th pregnancy & 15weeks along and look pregnant with a snug shirt on!

  • you don't have to get big when you're pregnant. usually you start showing after 20 weeks though.

  • depends on your body no pregnancy and no women are alike. I didn't start showing at all with my first until 6 months and then it was like wow where did that come from lol it looked like I gained all mine at once. With my second I started to show at 14 weeks, but only noticable to people that new I was pregnant. I think I was more like 5 months when I was really noticable. This time around I new I was pg bf I took a test at 4 weeks cause my jeans wouldn't fit. But I started showing at 10 weeks this time around and now at 25 weeks pregnant (today) people can't believe when I tell them I have until august 9th I look like I am about to pop Although I go in next week for an ultrasound bc the baby is measuring way to big.
