When did you first start showing?? I've been told that petite people always show later? is that usually true?? I'm only 5'3" and started at 105 pre pregnancy weight. I know my step sister is 5'7" and 150 she started like 2nd month!

I'm 5'0 and weighed 100 abd 120 with my last two and started showing at like 20w abd 16w

 It just really depends on the person.  I tend to show right away, and I'm 5'11" with a pretty slender body

Really all depends on your body. I am 5 foot and with my first showed at 12 weeks, 2nd 9 weeks 3rd and 4th 4 weeks.

I had a friends that with her first two showed pretty early and got big. Then her third she was barely showing at 9 months. She is also the same height as I am.

I'm 5'2" and weighed 100 lbs when I first got pregnant.  I started showing around 11 weeks. Here is a pic of me at 15 weeks and 17 weeks

I think part of it depends on torso length. I'm just under 5'8" and am a slender build with a relatively long torso and it's taken me 6 months or more with both pregnancies for strangers to say anything. I was 32 weeks along when the storytime librarian looked at me and told DD that she just realized DD was going to be a big sister.

im 5.2 and weighed about 155 when i got pregnant. I was showing at 10 weeks. I was probably showing before then, but 10 weeks was when others went "wow, you look pregnant".

I am 5"3 and with my first pregnancy I started showing the 3rd month, and this pregnancy I am already showing and I am 12 weeks.

I think it totally depends on the person! I'm 5'2 and have just barely started showing at 20 weeks with my first.. With clothes on you still can't even tell I'm pregnant
