when do you really start to show?

I'm about 25weeks pregnant now and I have a baby bump that I can notice and people that know me can tell barely... but when did or do you really start to show?

  • My fiance and I could tell at about 24 weeks but at at 28 weeks I popped overnight and now it is hard to not notice.

    It does feel better when people see you as being pregnant instead of being bloated or fat. I hope it happens to you soon! Also the extra attention that you get is nice too.

    Can't wait until you can bask in all the attention as well :)

  • Well...I THOUGHT I started showing at about 24 weeks, but looking back at pictures from that time, I really didn't. Then I THOUGHT I started showing around 28 weeks...and according to side-standing pictures I did, but strangers never said anything to me.

    And now I'm 37 weeks and so completely obviously pregnant...but strangers STILL don't acknowledge it. So when I look back at it I'll have to say I started showing to myself at around 24 weeks, my family noticed around 34 weeks, and strangers never ever noticed.

    *sigh*

  • Eight months with my first. Seriously went from a little chubby to hugely pregnant over night. Have a gazillion stretchmarks to prove it. Most people didn't know I was pregnant until a couple weeks before she came. Now with my second I was showing with in weeks of finding out.

  • This is my first, and I started showing (to me) at about 22-24 wks, but strangers started noticing around 24-26 wks. Now it's so obvious that I'm sicking of telling everyone that I'm not overdue, I'm not due until Jan 12.... Grrr lol
