About 2 weeks ago I started to feel where my baby bump was starting, but nada since then. How long did it take you to start showing?

  • That is normal. Every women is different when pregnant. I did not show till 7 1/2 months. I only gained a little over 20 pounds, if that helps.

  • I didn't show until I was about 26 weeks.

    And if it helps any...I'm 39 weeks and not one single stranger has acknowledged my pregnancy. No random belly rubs or anything.

    I'd give anything for a random belly rub :( And now my pregnancy is almost over. Booo.

  • well i didnt get as lucky as these women did lol. With my first i showed around 16wks i started off very tiny though so maybe that had something to do with it this time around im 21weeks and was showing by 13wks. dont worry one morning you will wake up and its like you poped over night lol.

  • Just like the previous poster said at 22 weeks I really wasn't showing. I went to NYC for 3 days for a vacation, by the time i got home I was seriously huge! It was crazy!
