Pregnancy Pregnancy

When did you start showing (even a little)?

I'm 12 weeks 5 days today and starting to get worried because I only have a TINY (tiny, tiny) bump over my pubic bone. Everyone keeps telling me I'm so small and I never thought anything of it until they also started telling me how they were already showing a bit by this point.

I never started showing until at least 20 weeks. I might have some bloat early on, but no actual uterus or baby showing until 20 weeks. People always told me that I looked tiny, unhealthy, not pregnant, etc, I had healthy babies. They were small, neither broke 6 pounds, but totally healthy and my doctor was never worried. As long as your doctor doesn't say anything, don't worry about it.

Doctor wasn't worried at nine week appointment but I haven't had one since then and won't have one until I'm almost 15 weeks.

I'm a worrier. It's terrible. Lol

I really wouldn't worry. Not all women show early, or have the nice big bellies. I never got really big, even at the end.

With my first i didn't show until 5 months with my 2nd i had really bad bloating so it looked like i was showing at 12 weeks.


When you show also depends on if it's your first pregnancy or not and you genetics because some people don't show. There was a lady on here (can't remember her name) but she was 24 weeks with twins and was barely showing. So it just depends.

With my first i didn't look really pregnant until probably 22-25 weeks. I just looked like i put on a little bit of weight. With my second i was noticeably pregnant by 14-15 weeks and now with my third I'm 13.5 weeks and have been noticeably pregnant for at least 2 weeks.

I didn't look pregnant until 25-26 weeks. Before that, it depended on what I wore.

Don't base your pregnancy on what people say their bellies looked like. They are all different, and the size of your belly doesn't determine a healthy pregnancy. Try to relax and enjoy. :)

My first hubby and I noticed at 8 weeks and everyone could tell at 12 weeks. My second everyone could tel at 9 weeks and our third everyone could tell at 4 weeks.

Don't worry about what others say. Either it's you are so small or you are showing already or so big. Are you sure it's not twins. Everyone carries differently.

I'm 12 weeks 2 days and just barely starting to show....my husband and I can tell because I was so petite, I was 106lb when I got pregnant and 5'2". To other people I just look pudgy....I have gained 3lb so far (I had a really small apetite before getting pregant, now I feel like I just eat like a normal person)....from everything I've read some people don't show until 18+weeks so you definitely have time....and I read that petite people can show earlier bc it really has nowhere to hide.
