The Bump Expert

When do you start showing during your first pregnancy?

It really depends on you. Your fetus is pretty tiny in the first two months, so other people won't be able to see much -- if any -- change in your belly. If this is your first pregnancy, it often shows later than women who've already been through it once.

By about 12 weeks, when the top of the uterus has grown up and out of the pelvic cavity, you'll probably be able to feel it just above the pubic bone. This significant change usually signals the beginnings of your visible baby bump... meaning, time to start the maternity clothes shopping! (Or at least pick up a Bella Band.)

Mrs.Smartt92807 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Its so true and so annoying, the answer is simply that not only is it different for every woman, but its different with every pregnancy too. I am 10 weeks with my 2nd pregnancy, and barely showing. However, by this stage with my first, I had a noticable bump that I used to hold my hands over to make sure everyone knew I was pregnant and not just fat!! This time around I started my pregnancy about 12 pounds lighter than I did last time, so am wondering if that has anything to do with it. Also, this time around my bosom has slightly increased, yet last time I pratically got implants overnight! Its so crazy handing your body over to something/someone else and not knowing what the heck its guna do on you!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks today with my first baby and I can't tell if I am starting to show or if I am just bloated... I feel like I am too big for my normal work blouses but too small to wear my maternity shirts...

hhaberman |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

more of little question than a comment, but if you are very thin will you show sooner? by very thin, im technically considered slightly underweight, but not enough for drs to be worried. My mother and grandmother are the same way. I'd ask them but I haven't shared the news yet.

erinm589 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I have read about a lot of people noticing a "come and go belly." That is definitely the case with me! In the morning I look totally normal, but by the end of the day, my husband lovingly jokes about my noticeable "baby weight." Ironically, he is "showing" more than I am, with all of his recent sympathy eating. Who else has noticed baby bumps on their significant other???

greggandlinds |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am going to be 13 weeks in 2 days and I have no bump at all....I tried feeling around the pelvic bone and don't feel anything even close to the surface :( I hope the baby bump comes soon....

If I already have a belly due to being a little overweight, I wonder if it will take me longer to "show"

bigfatfunkai |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 4 weeks so I am not showing, though I would like to blame by little belly bulge on a baby bump, I just don't think it's possible yet. I did wonder if anyone else noticed their boobs growing overnight. I was a full B but now at only 4 weeks pregnant, I am a full C. Anybody else have this? My Mom was really tiny when she had me but she was all belly and boobs. She was a B when she got pregnant with me and a Double E when I was born. That scares me!!!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 7 almost 8 weeks along and my tummy has already began to show a bit. Why is this??

pandaBabyy21 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

With my first, I started showing fairly quickly, however not as quickly as with my second!! I am now 11 weeks and have been wearing maternity pants (since my regular pants didn't button/zipped anymore) since week 9! I am tall and in a healthy weight (not as slender as before my first). It feels kind of strange I must admit....I was not ready to tell the world I was pregnant just yet and here I am looking like 4-5 months long, at least it feels that big, oh well :) as long as he/she is healthy, right??? :-)

IVF rocks! |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 6 weeks and can already tell. I think it's mostly because I am thin and it's more noticeable to me and my husband. I know it's not the baby yet, but my uterus has definitely grown and is very hard. It could also be that I am always hungry and can't stop eating!

susie985 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I started showing at 18 weeks...is that normal? I'm 21 weeks along right now and people still think i'm not pregnant sometimes lol.

LubaJones |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i am 16 weeks and showing...sort of. some people have asked me if i'm expecting, or just fat. i had another lady comment that i was quite large for still having 5 months to go. is it just me, or are people rude? do they not take into account feelings...boy do i feel lousy about myself now.

snowgrlz |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost 9 weeks and I can definitely see the beginnings of a baby bump. This is my first so I was a little surprised that is was noticeable already, but I think it's different for everyone. It depends on your height, weight and how much stomach muscle you had before hand, plus how much you're eating and how much your uterus has grown. But, I agree with IVFrocks, as long as the baby is healthy, bring on the bump whenever! And no, snowgrlz, don't let people like that get to you. Enjoy every second of your pregnancy, getting bigger is one of the beautiful parts of expecting.

AConrad621 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am twelve weeks and there is nothing to show for it, other than exhaustion and nausea. I am anxious to show, so that it seems real to me, because right now, I look the same, feel much worse and can't drink or take my normal headache meds for the unbearable migraines I have been having.

morganvaughn |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

:( I am almost 14 weeks and still not showing at all. I am pretty tall and thin though so maybe that is why.

britanie |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks and am not showing. However, my pants are a tad tighter and my boobs are growing. I have not been sick, really, but have had migraines . . . I think I'd rather throw up. Migraines are not fun to go through, your head hurts, you have blurry vision, your irritable and your nauseated!

Hapakk@msn.com |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

The bottom line is that everyone is different. I'm 9 weeks and I have a slight baby bump, I have friend that's 4 1/2 months and you can barely tell she's pregnant. Just enjoy your pregnancy and your baby bump whenever it decides to make it's appearance. I have found that a bella band (mines call a beband I got it at target) is a life saver. Whether it's bloat or beginning of baby it really helps with those jeans that may still button but are getting uncomfortable. It looks like you have a layered tank on underneath your top. Good Luck with your baby bumps!

TBeaulac84 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

There is a large woman who works in my office. When I announced my pregnancy to my small office, she had the nerve to say that she thought I was expecting since she saw a little belly. I was just at 5 weeks so I have no idea what she was talking about. That bulge she was seeing has been there for the 4+ years I have worked with her!

wolfchik9 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm at almost 6 weeks, and although I know its not the baby coming out just yet, my belly has a slightly-harder-than-fat bump where a baby bump usually is. My uterus is sitting in a spot that is waaayyyyy in front so could it be that or am I just getting fat in all the right places?

Micebum |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Is there anyone that was considerably overweight before pregnancy? Does any beautifully obese woman have input on whey they started notice the different kid of bump other than the stuff we are already used to?

vmardones |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I was overweight with my first and at about 10-12 weeks, my pants started getting too tight. By 20 weeks I was in my maternity clothes. I am overweight now at 5 weeks and so far everything still fits.

moongirl_423 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 14 weeks and I'm not really showing yet, other than belly fat. I'm so anxious to get my baby bump!!

lisafbug |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 7 weeks and have no clue if I'm showing or not. I think I've just gained weight with the excuse to eat more now. However, my doctor says my uterus is tilted backward and therefore it will probably take longer for me to show than someone who has a non-tilted uterus or one that is tilted forward.

Pilar0071 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

To vmardones: I am overweight and just found out two weeks ago that I am pregnant with my second. I weight a good 40 pounds more than I did when I was pregnant with my first. (I never lost the baby weight due to hypothyroids) Despite the fact that I am noticeably overweight I am already showing at 6 weeks. By showing I mean there is a belly there and even though I thought it just looked like a larger tummy for a larger woman I have been asked many times how far along I am already! I don't know if it is a multiples birth, or because it is my second or just simply that I am just showing early. Whatever it is there is no denying my baby bump has started.

babybird327 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm a little over 12 weeks and I can't button any of my pants. My belly is definitely growing now. I have a belly band. It's really not comfortable. I'm quickly going to transition to some elastic waist bands.

meredith101010 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks and have been showing for most of the pregnancy. This is my first child, and I feel like I am having twins, but when we did the ultrasound today doc said he could only see one baby. Does everyone feel this way, cause I feel huge i was a size five before i got pregnant i could not wear a seven 4 weeks ago. My co-workers say that I am showing way before they did, and the weirdest thing is I am eating healthy like I did before I got pregnant. No nausea, no cravings. Also no beef, ice cream, or chocolate. So if its not twins what gives? Why am I having twin dreams now?

anguser |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm eleven weeks as of yesterday, and I started showing just 3 days ago. It seemed to happen overnight, and it definitely looks different than the pregnant-looking bloating of a few weeks ago. I still haven't shared the news with everyone at work, but I couldn't be more excited about this belly!! I'm ready to show it off, so I'm sure everyone's going to figure it out before I spill the beans later this week!!!

agoglesby |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

To vmardones: This is my first pregnancy and I'm significantly overweight. I'm currently 16 weeks and I can notice my little bump because when I suck in my stomach I can feel the hardness of my uterus and feel that it's getting bigger. However when I'm at work my pants are tight and I wear a belly band, but no one can really tell that I'm pregnant. I imagine that if I started out at a size 2 or 4 it would be very noticeable by now. I think that's just another one of the downfalls of being overweight during pregnancy, it's a lot harder to notice a cute baby bump. I'm hoping that by my 20 week ultrasound I'll at least look a little pregnant :)

Babygirl57 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 6.5 weeks, and I'm pretty certain I'm showing. I have a fit/athletic build, with pretty low body fat. I know by body when it's bloat-shaped, and this ain't it. So either there's a pregnant bloat that looks totally different from PMS bloat, or I'm showing. Even my husband agrees my belly looks preggie.

ibwarren |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm only 8 weeks but the fat under my belly button (pelvic area) is already protruding. Can I be showing this early? OR Am I just getting fat?

WilderKohn |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 12 weeks, and already starting to show!! This is my 2nd pregnancy but when i was pregnant with my Son i did not show untill I was about 20 weeks and ended up having a 9lb 8oz baby!!! I feel like I am goin mad, how can I be showing this early??? But I am, my belly has just popped rite out and I cant even suck it in to make me look slimmer,it even feels really hard too! I think that when people know how far I am they will think I am sticking it out for attention but its not the case. I have come to the conclution that every woman is different and so is every pregnancy, and that bump will show sooner if you have had another baby. So I dont care what others think, I cant help it and at least my baby i healthy!!! :) And if anyone is worring that they arnt showing,dont worry u will sooner or later, as long as u know ur lil baby is ok thats all that counts!!! xxxx

CharlieBaileyMatt |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

With my first pregnancy I didn't start to show until around 18 weeks and didn't gain weight until 16 weeks. With this one, I'm only 6 weeks and already have that bloated look.

stephitle |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 14weeks. I just look like a stuffed turkey!!! Seriously I can't wait for my baby belly. It's become more firm than it was around 12-weeks but gosh if you were a stranger you would just think i'm out of shape. I am very active and watch what I eat; it's got me worried like the baby is not growing. Maybe im just another nervous, crazy first time mommy!

Allaboutmeallthetime |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

It definitely differs from woman-to-woman and with each pregnancy. I'm 8 weeks into my fourth pregnancy (even though this is my 3rd baby), and I swear I had a bump at 6 weeks. With my first child I didn't show until I was almost 7 months pregnant, but with my second child I had a solid baby bump at 3 months. I broke out the maternity clothes this week because even though I can still get my regular pants on, they just arent' comfortable with that belly band. I'm still not big enough for maternity shirts, but this is definitely the earliest I started showing.

cflores714 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I didn't lose all my weight after my first baby but my stomach is starting to pooch a little more. I'm 11 weeks. I wonder if I could already be showing? My first little guy was 10lb 7.1oz. I wonder if this could mean I'm having another giant baby!? Good grief. Oh well, it was well worth it. =0)

MEGrover |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 7 weeks now with my first and there isn't a noticable baby bump, but I definitely can't fit into my clothes as well. But the scale says I've only gained a couple of pounds! And I noticed for sure my boobs growing over night. I started as a DD and by the 4 week stage I was already a DDD! Ugh, they are going to be huge! Not looking forward to that part. But can't wait until my bump comes!

MariatheRose |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks with my thrid child and just barely beginning to show, my first two children did not start showing until i was almost 7 months pregnant. Im a very petite person and believe this is why but can't believe im already showing now!! Very exciting though. :)

ncernansky |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 weeks and 4 days and I have lost 4 lbs with all my morning sickness but my lower abdominal area seems to have a small bump. My clothes aren't tight at all but I think it is because I have been losing weight. I do have baby bloating going on in my stomach though!

galicia0327 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I just hit 6 weeks and my pants barley fit! My husband even says I look a lot further along than I am. My sister was the same way. I think mine is a lot of gas and bloating which is making trying to wait to first prenatal exam to tell people harder.

chrisdav79 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 weeks and I have gained 5lbs total since finding out I was pregnant but my first appointment was at 7 weeks and since that appointment I have gained 2lbs, Im not sure which one I should go by but I know that over Thanksgiving I ate so much food and I was bloated and gained a lot of weight. My pants were so tight and I looked like I was showing a little, but now that Thanksgiving is over I have lost what I gained from those dinners and Im back to normal, just my pants are getting a little tighter. Also, my boobs seem like they grew a lot over night but still barely fit in the bras I always wore... but they dont seem to be growing anymore and I dont know if thats normal.

deftonesangels |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 weeks along and don't think I'm showing yet. Over the last year or two I grew a slight belly pooch anyway, so I always look like I have a teeny baby bump. These days it is getting harder and harder to suck it in. Earlier this year one of my second grade students asked if I had a baby growing in there. This was before I was pregnant. Our of the mouths of babes...

missshorts |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am now 11 weeks along and not showing yet. I gained the 5lb I was supposed to in the first trimester, I think I actually gained more like 6 ot 7 with the holidays. I dont look pregnant yet but I am getting a little bit of a buldge in my actual stomach and then the lower part too. It pretty much looks like all of the weight I have gained went right to my stomach. My jeans are tight and Im afraid to wash them and I wont be able to button them. Hopegfully by the time I come back from our Christmas weekend, I will be showing. I will be almost 13 weeks by then.

deftonesangels |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

My friend and I at work are both 13 weeks. She is thinner than I am and has a small baby bump starting to show if she pulls her shirt tight... I on the other hand don't think I have a baby bump starting at all... I am small framed too, but I think my belly already had a "pooch" to start so I keep thinking this is my pooched out belly like before. I keep calling it my food belly, not my baby belly ;)

allisonhinkle |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i'm going to be 18 weeks tomorrow, and though i can feel the baby moving and can feel a bit of a bulge below my belly button, my clothes still fit and i'm not yet "showing" -- i can't wait to pop!!

chelsea1215 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 wks, 4 days from being 11, and you can definitely see a baby bulge! Every woman is different :)

Yami712 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im almost 5 weeks, and even though I know the baby isn't big enough for me to be showing yet, I feel like im bigger. I think its just gas and bloating though! This is my first pregnancy, so im just anxious to start feeling pregnant. Its hard to wait.

nanomanon |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 8 weeks, and cant decide yet if my inability to button my pants is the effects of chowing down over the holidays that just passed, or due to the pregnancy. I definitely feel bloated! and know i did gain weight from the holidays, but have noticed just recently that while i can still button my pants, it has become uncomfortable. I was unbuttoning and half way unzipping my pants, and folding them down, but just bought one of those belly bands, that thing is nice, and i'm not constantly pulling up my jeans! haha While i'm anxious to claim that i'm "showing", i'm cautious not to jump ahead of myself, it could just be bloating. Looking forward to definite signs of a baby bump!

softballchick_15 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 8 weeks pregnant, I feel like I'm definitely showing! But my story is similar to a lot of others, I do feel bloated and my boobs grew literally overnight! I'm normal weight, and I'm 5'4, seems early to be showing but I'm excited!

Marlena33 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am just nine weeks with my second, even with my first i was showing super early and making it hard to hide, I have had to buy maternity clothes already!

jacobsmommaplus1 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Working towards my 12th week and my baby bu,p seemed to appear around week 10. It was an overnight transformation! Went out and bought my first pair of marturnity jeans (so much more comfortable then the belly band) and they were even cute little skinny jeans!

Pina |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Pre-pregnancy, I carried a little extra around the mid-section, so I thought that it would take me longer to start showing. But yesterday at 12 weeks, 6 days, I popped! I couldn't believe my eyes...it happened so suddenly.

SugarQueen101 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 11 weeks and started to notice a difference in my belly at 6 weeks. I'm overweight but do not overeat. I have a a little bit of a double bump - it still goes in at the belly button, but even there is noticeably bigger. I've had intestinal issues (placement, etc) all my life, maybe this is causing the double bump. Doc didn't think it was anything wrong. Anyone else have a "double bump"?

eternashine |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm just over 7 weeks and swear that I am starting to show already (at least that I notice). I showed a little earlier with my first, but this pregnancy has been completely different in other ways. I haven't gained more than a pound or two, but my stomach is noticeably bumped out and harder, and my pants are getting tighter. I haven't been eating much more than usual since I haven't felt good lately, but again, I swear I have a little bump already. Twins is definitely on my mind...and my first child was 9 lbs on time, and my husband's mom had large babies, getting bigger each time. He was 10 lbs 14 1/2 oz! Maybe the combination of it being my second time and a larger baby, combined with some gas and bloating, is giving me an early baby bump. Who knows!?!

jorda235 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 13 weeks and I think I'm just started to show. It's more apparent in the evenings then it is in the morning so most of it could just be bloat. I am feeling a little self conscious since I don't exactly look pregnant yet so some sometimes I just feel fat.

HelloKitty415 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

15 weeks 4 days and no show, I can feel my little gold fish swimming around in there and lying face down is getting uncomfortable, but I want to look like a mommy already!

SNTemme |

I am 6 weeks and i think im just bloated, but i also feel like its not just that, can it be possible to show this early?

alo24 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i am 12 weeks and starting to show. I am really petite and small framed so I was surprised to even show right now. I realize everyone is dfferent and even if your small you can show earlier than one would expect. I love the feeling seeing my little bump.

cfurey22 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm a big girl and am almost 13 weeks. I have actually lost weight since becoming pregnant from all the morning or "all day" sickness as I like to call it. However, my pants don't fit, things are changing so much. And while I've always been a big girl I feel ginormous recently....so weird...

Katie32881 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I would assume all people are different when it comes to showing. I am 9 weeks 4 days and started to show this week. Normal weight for me is about 120lbs so I guess it differs on size to begin with as well. Good luck to us all!! Happy belated Mother's day!!!

Melanie Anger |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost 9 weeks and I am very bloated. I am almost 6 feet tall and have a larger frame I am also a little overweight since I took an office job. I feel like it is not all bloat but that some of it is the beginning of a baby bump. I am really excited to have my first child he/she is due on new years eve 2011!!!!

jessketterer |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I was told I was 8 weeks until last week when i went in for my check up and they told me I was actually due Christmas day which moved me up to about 10 1/2 weeks. I felt like I was getting the "baby bloat" but my dr measured my tummy an said i grew a little and I am just showing a little earlier than most. I am not a very petite girl i weigh about 139 right now my normal weight is 130 so I am not that overwieght either. Doctor said it is just dependant on your body and how it wants to react. This is my first child as well. I have a friend who barely weighed 100 lbs and she didnt show until about 7 1/2 months. Good luck to everyone!

Ashleyn1987 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am only 6 weeks along and I can tell a difference in my belly. I'm not sure if it's bloating or a baby bump though. My clothes don't fit anymore, especially my bras. I am thin so I don't know if that affects when my bump will appear. My family says they can tell I look bigger too. I am just hoping to get my big baby bump soon!

dino24saur |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am in the middle of my 6th week and getting married in 5 weeks. Needless to say I am a bit worried that I will be showing at 11 weeks due to this unexpected blessing. My dress is flowy but we would like to keep it under wraps until after the big day. Any advice out there???? Thank you!

laurennellh |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I got married this past weekend, at exactly 10 weeks, and BARELY fit into my dress. I'm pretty sure it's an equal combo of baby and being unable to maintain good posture because of nausea, but there is definitely a bit of a bump starting. I wore a slightly-too-big set of Spanx (because no one locally sold the maternity style of any control garments), and it was fine: honestly, I don't think it made too much of a difference regarding fit, but I felt much more comfortable and confident knowing there was something helping my tummy stay hidden. I've got a pretty normal frame, so if you're in the same boat as me, I strongly recommend some kind of control undergarment, for sanity's sake if nothing else!

dannmarie |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm almost 10 weeks and just this week I've really started to notice the change. My belly is starting to pop out in a way that is definitely not just bloating! It's just starting to become noticeable to those who know me, probably because I was thin to begin with.

alliekathleen |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im going on 19 weeks today and i have this almost "come and Go bump" its gone in the morning and then sometimes throughout the day I just look bloated and towards the end of the day its there. or sometimes vice versa on the timing for the bump. Is this normal? This is my first and i know Ive been having problems putting on weight, which is weird because Im eating alot!! :)

monkeyy2k3 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

At 6 months and 1 week (so, at 25 weeks) nobody even knew I was pregnant and I was even wearing summer clothes that showed a bit of skin (as normal summer clothes do - as opposed to big, bulky winter sweaters is my point). I had an emergency abdominal issue followed by surgery that kept me hospitalized for 2+ weeks when I was 25wks along. When I came out I looked like the goodyear blimp! BUT it was all swelling from the surgery as I had lost all body fat, muscle, etc from them not letting me eat for 2 weeks while they figured out what was wrong with me. Now, at 37 weeks, I'm about the same size as when I came out of the hospital actually (at around 7 months along). Most people still can't tell I'm pregnant unless I intentionally let it show. I'm still wearing my size 0's for shorts and size small in shirts, but have gained about 17 pounds total. And yes, my son is of normal size - he was actually a bit on the large size up until my surgery, but he's right where he should be now and midwife says to expect a 7-7.5 pounder! The countdown is on too - I'm being induced in 15 days!! :) I think getting back into shape will be a breeze considering I never stopped exercising and haven't gained too much. With my first son I weighed 177 - I weigh 124 today as I sit here. It's all about watching what you eat, mild but daily exercise, and not 'letting yourself go' as I did last time.

It took me until this very moment (17 weeks, 2 days) : ) Boobies, for me, are what grew 1st at about 9wks..

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 14 weeks with my first and started really "popping out" last week. I think this is a lot of baby bloat though! In the morning, my bump is definitely less pronounced, and it's much more noticeable after I eat...which is how I know it's a lot of bloat and not a lot of baby! I think how much you show and when depends on your body type and how your body responds to the pregnancy and the hormones. I was always bloated after eating even before I was pregnant, so it's no surprise I am bloated now!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 13 wks and feeling a little sad about my lack of a baby bump. I'm a fluffier person to begin with and this is my first. I was nauseous for a while and lost a little weight but so far I pretty much look the same minus the queasiness that reminded me I'm pregnant. Nothing else has changed, no tenderness or anything. Can't wait to show!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im 6 weeks today, and was also wondering if what im starting to notice is baby bloating or a baby bump,i even had to buy a bella band because my pants are very uncomfertable. this is my first pregnancy and my husband and i are very excited to start seeing our bump, your comments have been very helpful!!!!!!

anaidesousa |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 16 weeks pregnant and not showing at all the only thing that has changed is my boobs...they have grown a whole cup size. I just want to start showing!! i'm worried that i haven't yet but when i went a few days ago for my check up everything was great...fingers crossed!!!

srcunn87 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am about 5 weeks and i'm not showing yet. I am overweight because of my height I am 5'0 , Although i don't look that much over weight. (I'm bottom heavy and I'm a 38D, Doc days that's the reason i tip the scale a little. I like to call myself pleasantly plump! I like my boobs but my hips are huge and I usually lose everything but that when I diet and exercise!!!!!) Anyway, I noticed today that I am literally falling out of my bra! On top of that, I am still cramping as if I have my period. There is no bleeding and the Doc did not find any signs of miscarriage. what's up with the cramping???!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 12 almost 13 weeks and othe than bloating I am not showing any baby bump yet. I have gained a few pounds though, and i do feel self-concious about that and i am worried about gaining more weight than i should. I have gained around 3 pounds so far. is this normal?

created2worship |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

With my first pregnancy i did not show until i was 4 1/2 months... Now with my second pregnancy im am 12 weeks and you can see my baby bump, was not prepared for that.

RubyAnchondo |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 weeks today and have a definite bump. I have also had a lot of bloating and think some might be water weight. This is also my first and I hear everyone say you show more during the first pregnancy.

handbagguru30 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 14 and as far as my husband and I can tell I'm not showing at all. I was very sick in my first trimester and lost 12 lbs! I wonder when I'll start to show??

ashleyeknowles |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

When I was only one week prego, before I even missed my period, I had someone, a complete stranger at that, ask me if I was expecting. I am of average size and this seriously hurt my feelings. But then I took a preg test and boom, she was right...maybe she could sense it somehow. At 7 weeks prego now, I am being teased that I look like I am four or five months along, and I have barely been to see the doctor, sshheeesh. But, I do know it's different for everyone, and I am glad to show off my belly, I think so anyways. Seriously, I am already maternity clothes, and I am just starting down this road. too funny for me and hubby. I have a bowling ball and it's all swelling plus bloating. haha

nposey13 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am only 12 weeks and already showing. I already had to buy some maternity clothes. I was a lil upset because I didnt think that I should be showing yet, but from a lot of these posts i feel a lil better. I just feel like i look like im 4 or 5 months and im not. Also my friends ultrasounds all look a lot smaller then mine at 12 weeks. i think i might have a giant baby. lol. oh well i guess its just time to enjoy it =)

crystalg18 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Uh, I have been showing for like three weeks already and am only 11 weeks along! I feel like it's really different for each person, so I don't think there is a one-size fits all answer for this one.

amandajane13 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i began to show at 12 weeks and i already gained about 8.5 pound im 4 months now and i feel huge already but i know my baby isnt twins but i also have a friend that is 1 week behind me and she has no belly so it truly depends on the person

newmommy02222012 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i am 13 weeks today and i have been showing for at least 2 weeks now. my boss is 4 weeks ahead of me and she isnt showing as much as i am. so when everyone says it depends on the person, i think it really does. this is both of our firsts and she is slightly smaller than me pre-pregnancy. so you never know..dont worry. you will show eventually !! (:

karenilda |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm at the end of 12 weeks with my first. I can feel a difference in my stomach, the hardness above my pelvic bone, a little extra pooch, harder to button my jeans, etc. It's no obvious to the world though. I can still wear all my regular clothes, but I do notice the one spot that has had significant growth is my waist. I had a 24 inch waist and now I'm around 26 inches... which for my super petite build and height is kind of nerve wracking. Also, I get very moody if I go try on clothes, I don't know why I am still shopping for regular clothes (I'm a fashion fiend and will not buy maternity clothes until the moment I have to, and even then they won't be "maternity" clothes). Anyhow, so I get pissed off because nothing fits me the right way. It's definitely an awkward faze that I would appreciate more if I were just showing so it could be noticeable and obvious to me and the world.

I started showing last week at 20 weeks my weight gain has been 6 lbs so far not much but healthy

Amber1127 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

With my first child, I didnt start showing until I was about 23 weeks but when did I blew up almost over night. With this one, my pants startd fitting tight at 6 weeks. I am now almost 9 weeks and even though I am not really showing, I did have to go out and buy maternity last week. I give it another 2-3 weeks and I will be really showing.

preciousalissa |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 13 weeks today and my bump is noticeable. I had lost a lot of weight before getting pregnant so you can tell that there is a slight bump. Since I was still overweight, I will probably still look "just fat" most of the pregnancy. I can't wait until people no longer wonder if it is a baby or cheesecake...

Auntbff |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i am almost 21 weeks and I am barley showing, dr's say its' normal and that I just have a deep pelvic region! Kinda liking that i can still wear my normal clothes still!!

sarahdunford |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

With my first I didn't begin to show until about 6 months, and I was very tiny then, even a little underweight actually! With my second I showed pretty quickly, I was a little heavier than the first time around though also. Now, this time, only 16 months after having my 2nd baby, I haven't lost any baby weight and am 11 weeks and not showing at all, probably due to the fact that I am starting this journey overweight this time! But the Dr said my uterus is the size it should be right now. Every woman and even every baby is different :)

ashleyh26 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 17 weeks and no bump! This is my first...

Jeanette1stPregnancy |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

a lot of what people think is baby belly in the very beginning-under 12 weeks... seems to be a whole of gas and poop lol. our digestive tracts are slowed and that makes for a pretty nice amount of bloating. when you start seeing your uterus above your pelvic bone its safe to assume you have a little baby belly going on :) the disappearing and appearing belly spoke of in someones comments is more than likely gas and bloating. in the morning

janaeashley |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost 20 weeks and I'm not showing at all, nor have I gained weight (I'm about 4.5 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight). This is my first baby. I'm not sure why I'm not showing, but baby boy seemed healthy! I guess I'll just count my blessings for now that I haven't gained too much. I can't wait to be able to have a little belly though, especially so people stop looking at my funny when I am out of breath after walking up a hill to get to my classes.

kaelba2008 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im a little over 12 weeks and have yet to show. I actually lost maybe 3 lbs. and I wasnt fat or over my normal weight in the first place, I had just stopped excersising and I'm used to going to the gym for two hours a day I figured I would be up there by now

Gowa |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 16 weeks and just barely showing. I love the mornings so much, because I feel like that's when "the bump" is the most obvious! That's when I have "tummy time" with my little one. This is my first pregnancy so I guess I had planned on being slow to show. Love, HappyBunBaker

HappyBunBaker |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 16 weeks now and still not showing. I was told being the first pregnancy and since I have a longer torso it might make it longer before I start to show. After reading some of these stories it seems there is no real time frame to start showing.

StrawberrySiren07 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 13 weeks along with my first and not showing at all. All of my regular pants fit still. I started a little overweight, i actually lost 3 lbs and have gained like 1 back since the start, so maybe that is why. When i am laying down i think i can feel a bit of a hard spot right above my pelvis so maybe baby is trying haha. I cant wait to start showing so i feel more pregnant and not just have battled a bad case of the flu with morningnoonandnight sickness

wonderhopey |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

In my first pregnancy I didn't start showing until about 7 months or a bit after! I was NOT overweight at the time I was 5'7" and weighed about 155lbs, which I always thought was big but the doctors said because of how tall I was that I was not considered overweight. (I'm just pointing that out because I was not showing because I already had a 'tummy' or something... lol) I kept worrying something was wrong but then i read that during first pregnancies it takes awhile sometimes because your body is not use to stretching. My second pregnancy (which was twins), I'm not really sure when I started showing but it had to of been between 3-5 months and now I'm pregnant again (only 11 weeks) and I already feel uncomfortable laying on my stomach so I think it's beginning to bulge already!

mezmom |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im at 19 weeks today, and I wish that I looked like I have a baby bump...I feel like people just think of it as a "beer belly." Obviously I'm not drinking any of that...Just patiently waiting to get out of the awkward stage that I am in...

chelseaeben |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am on my 10th week. This is my 2nd pregnancy, my last being 17 yrs ago. I never completely lost the extra skin from my daughter. Anyway, at 7 weeks I went and had an ultrasound, I was so bloated and having difficulty wearing buttoned bottoms that I for certain thought I was having twins. In the ultrasound they saw a huge fibroid extending off my uterus, double the size of my uterus. As a result, at 7 weeks, I look 10 to 12 weeks and as my hormone levels increase, my fibroid will grow and my baby bump will be pushed forward. So, with that said, anyone over 30 I suspect is more susceptible to having fibroids and with pregnancy they grow. I am 37. Crazy thing, is that my area around my belly button is protruding...and it's hard. Looks funky under shirts and makes me more of a barrel type baby bump. Wishing everyone well and wonderful healthy babies :)

yazzybunny |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I keep seeing everyone saying they're bloated but I don't feel bloated. I mean I was in the beginning and I had that, I can hear the gas moving around moments, but I don't feel bloated now and I'm so nauseated that I would guess I have lost weight now rather than gained it in these last few days. I'm pretty overweight and I carry some weight in the middle but it's high and the hardening I feel in my lower stomach makes me feel like I'm just evening out. I just can't believe my boobs have grown so much. I had to go to some Lane Bryant ones I bought a while back and seemed a little big and now they fit just fine. I hope they go down after this cause they were big before the pregnancy.

Alison85 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Hi ladies, I was reading through this thread and was wondering if anyone started showing at 5 weeks? this is my first pregnancy and i can already feel down by my pelvic bone that there is a beginning of a bump. Is this normal? Ive also had cramping for about 2 weeks now and im getting worried that something is wrong. My doc said since there is no bleeding that its fine but she wouldnt do an ultrasound. I am nervous that it is twins since my mom lost twins when she was about my age.

hrg21 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am ten weeks along and i'm not sure if i am showing or if i just gained weight from being to tired and sick to exercise......i wasn't in perfect shape before so im just not sure which it is ....this is my first pregnancy and i've tried to find some idea of what i should look like at this point and as far as i can tell it differs for everyone......my dh just says i'm insecure and that any change i have is good and that i look just as pretty as before if not more....im probably just hoping that im showing bc i can't wait but i really hope that i am showing

sparklyshine93 |

Believe it or not I popped at the end of my 20th week. I think my husband feels jipped that I wasn't showing sooner.

ttandjonny06 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks & I started showing 2 weeks ago. None of my pants could be buttoned anymore. This is my 1st pregnancy. I did have a small (not flat) belly before I got pregnant so I'm contributing the early showing to my organs moving up & positioning to make room for baby!

mabe_the_babe2002@yahoo.com |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks and barely starting to show. I finally went shopping for some maternity clothes b/c my pants were all feeling tight and I was tired of wearing yoga pants to cover for feeling bloated all the time. Sometimes I wonder if that's really what the "bump" is from at this point! Had to get a new bra too. I went from a DD to an H! Still in denial about that one a bit.

tngomaureen |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

At about 16 weeks I noticed at the top of my stomach, under my boobs, started getting big so i would say at about 4 months the roundness kicks in and theres no mistaking that you are pregnant.

ellieandherbelly |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 6 weeks and 4 days according to the calculator on here It also said I'm do on the 4th of july. I'm very excited but still don't beleive it it just hasnt sunk in yet. This is our first! I don't really think I'm showing but I feel bloated all the time and my pants are feeling a bit snug. I can not wait to get my baby bump.

beeg1877 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 14 weeks today. I am a healthy weight, but i cant tell if a am showing yet or not. There is definitely a slight bump but i wonder if its just bloating... or maybe im getting fat! haha i dont know. I think i am just so excited that i am doubtful that i really am showing yet. I want to so so so bad!!

jessierose544 |

ill be 12 weeks this thursday and im already showing. this is my second child and i started this pregnancy smaller than i did with my first... its still just as exciting!!!

georgiagurl13 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm very petite and considered underweight but not to a point where it concerns doctors and I look abnormal. I'm 5'5 and weigh 108 lbs. I'm like a 00 but a 0 on a good day. I'm 7 weeks along but I began to show at the very beginning of the 6th week. My mother in law had hips so she didn't begin to show until she was in the 6th or 7th month. Everyone is different and I think it really depends on your body structure and strength on when you'll begin to show.

morgvanwag |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm in the middle of my 21st week and right now I'm not really showing. Most of my jeans fit the way they used to when i would have bloating from my menstral cycle, and I feel like i should be showing more than what I am. I just look like I have a little pudge other than my chest growing and my family loves to make jokes on it (but all in good fun, ha!).

TristaSterling |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks. Some of my pants still fit well and with some of m pants I need to wear a Bella Band. I am 5'7" and carrying some weight. It seems like my love handles have left my sides and moved to the front of my tummy. Now I look like I have a baby bump, but it is just my flab. My breats have gotten larger, so many of my button down blouses and suit jackets for work no longer button. Yet maternity clothes are still too big.

kellyl831 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im 17 weeks and i stared showing around 14 to 15 weeks and my pants didnt want to fit any more but havent gained any weight i think its still odd to look like ive gained 5 pounds and not gain anything is that normal

babylette4892 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

Im 13 weeks now, and have just started to show. It's a little, tiny belly, but my husband said he can definitely see it now. :) It's exciting when it finally happens. I just want it to get bigger now! :)

Zeebra24 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

There is no right answer here. I was 23 weeks with my first before anyone could physically tell I was pregnant. Now im pushing 15 weeks with my second and still no sign of a bump even though I do feel like a house already.

RachelleB09292012 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I started getting a little belly around 7 weeks. Now at 11 weeks I'm in maternity pants! I haven't gained much weight 2 lbs at the most. Maybe I'm having a big baby, or more than one!

bmeist52 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am currently 12 weeks along and up until now I had the bloat bump. Now, I can seel my uterus in my lower abdomen, so I think i'll get a bump soon! I am 5'7" and started at 160 but am now 135 due to severe hyperemesis. Though the nausea has been very tough, i'm glad I had a little extra weight so the baby had plenty to snack on! I had a PICC line inserted today after having an IV site and a Zofran site for 3 weeks... Very excited to have less maintenence!

katiebiscay |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm at 18 weeks with a definite bump--when naked. HOWEVER, no one can tell, and even when I say I'm pregnant people think I'm not very far along. FWIW I have always had large boobs and round butt and recently--a small waist. I must admit, when I was heavier, I looked pretty much the way I look now at 18 weeks. People carry weight differently, so though I notice I've put on 4-5 inches on my waist, my usually hourglass figure just looks like a more average figure--nothing that screams PREGNANT. Actually it's a huge let down. I'm 5'0" if that makes a difference. I started at 108 and I'm now at 119.

PasteMoo |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 11 weeks today! I have a slight bulge but it's not hard. I'm 5'3" and started at 131 when I was 4weeks and I'm now 132:) I crave all things healthy and hardly get nauseous so I'm not gaining weight anywhere but baby;) I used to have a flat belly and now I have to use a hair tie on some of my jeans! Only myself, my close friends and my husband can tell the difference though...I'm ready to look pregnant and not like I've ate too many bags of cheetoes;)

JennyLou7 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 8 weeks tomorrow with my first and i def feel/see a difference. I'm in good shape (still going to gym so i stay that way lol) and nobody else can see, but my clothes are getting snug. My waist got thicker, So in efforts to stay comfortable and not cranky at work, i'm already wearing maternity skinny jeans. They only have a small band at the top and i'll prolly be able to wear these for another 2 or 3 months. They are sooooo comfy! I'm also like a few of you, In the morning i'm flat but by the end of the day i'm popped out & bloated lol Listen to your bodys ladies & be comfy!

carmyn0509 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 6'1" and 12 weeks today, I have a few shorter friends that are at about the same place in their pregnancy and are showing a lot, while my pre-pregnancy clothes are still a bit big. Would my height have something to do with that? I was just curious. (:

RebeccaNightrod |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks today with my first baby and I can't tell if I am starting to show or if I am just bloated...

My work uniform is pretty tight and I just always look full but I really don't think I'm showing. My GP said she thinks I'm just bloated.

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm a little overweight but have noticed my belly firming up in where expected. I'm almost 12 weeks and started wearing maternity clothes already because they are just so much more comfy! My hubby has gained weight too. funny right?

ivybeeps |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

So much depends on each woman and each pregnancy. For example, I am not showing at all but I am 6 feet tall so I think I have a lot of room for a developing baby to hide, lol! Obviously the same size baby with the same amount of fluid will show up more on a smaller person than a taller person. Secondly, someone who is overweight may show slightly but it may just appear they've gained more weight where as a thinner person will look like they have a "baby bump". Showing early, not showing early, it's all ok and normal. You'll be showing soon enough so enjoy your feet while you can still reach them!!!

KMalmquist |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 16 weeks and i had a bit of a tummy before I got pregnant. Although i see a little bit of a change, i'm consistant loosing weight. My doctor says my baby and I are completely healthy now.

Shniece |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm almost 12 weeks and I am definitely showing! For a while it was just that I couldn't button my jeans so I got a Bella Band but now it's obvious. I'm nervous b/c I'm not ready to annouce it at work just yet but I'm afraid people will notice! Or they'll think I'm just fat :( I want to get through another few weeks to make sure we;re safe and then I can announce it at work, look "fat" and it won't matter!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks with my first baby and started at 105 lbs. Due to severe hyperemesis gravidarum, I've lost weight and am now 93 lbs. (I'm 5'2). I am not showing at all, my stomach is so flat. I worked out a lot before so that's a probably why. I can't wait to have that cute baby bump! My dr said I probably will show later than most people :( Unfortunately my boobs have gone from a 32DD to a 32F! I dread to see how much bigger they are going to get.

My stomach is so flat, I can't wait to have that cute baby bump like all you other ladies! My dr said I probably won't show till much later! :( Unfortunately my boobs have gone from a 32DD to a 32F! Not happy about that! I dread seeing how big they'll get. Guess there's no one answer. Good luck everyone!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I thought I was the only one not showing! I am now 7 weeks and look just the same. I am at an average weight and all of my clothes fit me just the same. If it was not that my boobs hurt I would not even know that I was pregnant. I am thinking that it is good, mabe I won't gain too much weight. . . I can only hope :) Good luck to everyone!

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I started gaining weight before I knew I was pregnant. It was double good news to find out I was 7 weeks pregnant and not just getting fat!

jessmarieh |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i'm 12 weeks and i'm not showing at all nor have i gained any weight. i'm only 105 lbs(technically i guess that is underweight for my height,i'm 5'6) but i'm healthy. my waist is only about 25 inches and all my pants still fit fine. i read that if you have tight ab muscles it will take longer to show. i'd rather show later because 9 months is long time. i'd feel better to only show for like 3 months or so...just me. a friend of mine said she didn't show until 6 months. she woke up one morning and all the sudden could tell.

mummy2b3 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks and 4 days with my first baby.. I have that come and go belly.. I look normal in the morning but by mid afternoon and through the rest of the night I have a little bump. I feel bloated all the time though so it just makes me think I look fat. My normal clothes are getting too tight so I wear jeggings or maternity jeans for comfort but shirts are still too big for me so I am wearing a lot of lose tops! :) Cant wait for my not come and go belly though.

gishstix |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 weeks 1 day with my first and my husband has said for the past week or more that he thinks I'm starting to show!! I can't wear my jeans anymore, but thought it might be due to the crazy bloating, but the more I look and feel my belly (which was already a nice chubby one), it feels harder and like it's a different shape. I feel like I'm making all this stuff up in my head, but I love it!

HannahGrace08 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant with my first and I'm showing a little, but my stomach is not hard yet. I'm 5'7 and I've gained about 8 lbs already, but I have an athletic build because I'm in the military and worked out a lot before getting pregnant. I went through 5 uniforms this morning hoping I'd luck out, luckily one was able to be scrunchied closed. I think I'll be buying my maternity uniform today.

vanitylalala |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow, and while I've definitely gained weight (I look pretty hefty compared to pre-pregnancy), there's no definitive bump yet. Just a lot of extra flab in the abdominal region. In the mornings I can feel that my stomach is a bit harder and protrudes further than it normally does while lying supine, but when I'm standing, I might as well have just eaten too much breakfast. Can't wait for a true bump!!

JillandJeremy |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 13 weeks and I think I started showing a bit last week, sometimes it looks bigger than other times, mostly due to bloating I think. But there is definitely a little bump

jennygirlie |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

i am 16 weeks coming up on my 17th week and im almost 5 months and i still fit into my 00 pants...it scares me but i have gained a good 30lbs since i got pregnant. i'm still not showing but it will come hopefully. :)

wrk2pay4car |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I started out at 130 lbs & at 5'4 pre-pregnancy. This is my first pregnancy and from about weeks 8 to 12 I felt that my stomach stuck out just a little more than usual but I felt it was just because of bloating. I'm 13 weeks and 1 day now and the bloating has gone way down and my bump is beginning to pop out. It's noticeable to me and family and friends but I can't wait to really start showing.

futureslady |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm almost 18 weeks and have the slightest pooch! I can actually see the outline of my uterus on my stomach, but it barely sticks out! I'm not worried, I have regularly felt baby move since 15 wks and 3 days and have gained about 14 lbs. I have chronic back problems and my physio therapist says that how much it shows has a lot to do with core strength, fitness level and build. I thought I would show fast, because I don't carry and weight on my stomach, but I guess I do a good job with my core!

lauramump |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am less than 5 weeks...and because I'm bloating so much I'd swear I'm showing already LOL. I am very thin, and considered underweight. I wonder if I will start to show soon because if it?? All I know is my husband is making me huge lunches (expecting it all to be gone when I get home from work). I may not start to show early...but I bet I will be gaining! :)

I feel some heaviness in my boobs and my belly, but only my boyfriend and I can tell that I'm pregnant at this point. I'm 8 weeks and 1 day today, and I am so excited for everything to come! I want to start showing, I love being pregnant already, even with the occasional sickness :)

karmell4 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

typically your baby goes through a growth spurt around 21-23 weeks. this is usually when an average sized woman begins to show. if you're very thin, earlier, if you're overweight, then later. subsequent pregnancies usually show earlier than your first one because your muscles are already stretched out a bit. dont worry, we'll all be huge soon enough...in a good, pregnant way, of course!

mposer |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm think I'm about 9 weeks, but I'm showing like I'm 15 weeks! I have my first Dr. appt on Monday, so maybe I'll find out I'm further along than I thought. Or maybe it's twins!

MrsDaub |

Gabybettencourt |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm pregnant with twins; so I began showing at around 8 weeks. Now, at my 12th week, I look very much like a normal singleton pregnancy at 6 months!

juliaskidmore482 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 17 weeks today and still not showing. Everyone keeps asking me when I'm going to look pregnant, all my clothes still fit. I actually broke down and cried last week because I havent gotten any bigger and you cant tell I'm pregnant at all. I am so waiting for this baby to make its outward announcement of "I"m in here!"

RachellMcK |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 18 weeks and I feel JUST like you RachellMcK! While I'm clothed, no one can tell. I'm thankful I haven't gained a ton of weight yet, but it's hard to have people constantly question me.

Today I'm 22 weeks and I can still sorta hide it... Im also very small so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Alli89123 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I think it really depends on your abdominal strength. I am 18 weeks with my first and I am still not showing, still wearing my regular clothes and haven't gained any weight. I was kind of worried but my doctor said it is because I work out so much. (personal trainer, fitness instructor). I am hoping to show soon because it is weird telling people how far along I am when no one can tell I am pregnant.

alberger09 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am between 7-9weeks pregnant and I already have a belly. I am 5'7 and 130 ponds and my bumps pretty noticeable in form fitting clothing. All the girls in my family got big quick and had very large babysit though. I myself was 11pounds at birth so I don't know if that's something that can run in ur genes or what, but I have a def. baby bump already. Hope this helps! Oh and this is my first!

container |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 12 weeks 2 days and not showing yet, though I have gained about 3-4 lbs and feel uncomfortable in most of my clothing because it seems to all be in my mid-section. I am 5'7" and was 155 before pregnancy and not in very good shape at all, so my tummy muscles are definitely not to thank for my lack of a bump. Seems as though the most consistent information regarding when one will start to show is that it's entirely individual.

jessikw1981 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 weeks and might have a tiny bump, but it's not really that noticeable. Jeans are uncomfortable so I've been living in yoga pants, but I'm pretty sure they still fit. My weight is pretty much the same as before.

ToriOcampo |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

im 9 wks and tho im not showing my jeans are def not comfy any more. ive been living in yoga pants for the last two weeks. granted i started my pregnancy a bit over weight so this may have something to do with it!(im 5'2" and 154lbs tho muscular as well) this is my first pregnancy and ive done alot of research, everything ive seen says its alot to do with body type and size. like my friends wife has quite wide hips so she didnt show til after month 5! same for another girl i know. now my mom has no hips and showed early and stuck way out. so im thinking it def has to do with hip size. bigger hips means youll carry in further than those who dont have much hips. a friend of mine is a week ahead of me, and shes fine in her jeans, but she also has much bigger hips than me, im looking forward to my baby bump showing up!:)

cattiedourden30 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

with my first i started to show around 10-11 weeks but not much by the time i was 16 weeks tho i looked about 6 months pregnant!! i am now 10 weeks and im already showing with my second baby but i also did lose a baby back in late january... im guessing some people just have good genes becuase my daughters aunt who was pregnant with me while i was with my daughter did not show until she was 7 months!! it all depends with your body!

brittanysbigday |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am nearly 10 weeks and when I was just 9 weeks people started to notice. At the beginning of the day it's not so bad, but by afternoon (after breakfast and lunch) it's a little bump. Maybe because food is digesting slower and everything is moving much slower through the body, but it kind of bugs me. I am pretty sensitive about my weight (I used to be told I was fat every day, and it just always stuck). Before I got pregnant I was at the very bottom of my weight category for my height. I have told some people (am also a single mom so need the extra support), but it still bothers me when people comment on my little belly. I still fit into some of my pants, but not all.

Eryn1977 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I have made it to 12 weeks with my first pregnancy. I'm a little overweight to start, but since getting pregnant I've actually lost a couple pounds. Not intentionally, just eating healthier I think. Some of my clothes have been uncomfortable since week 8, but I just bought my first pair of maternity pants this week. My bump is there, but not terribly obvious to others just yet. As much as I am looking forward to the obvious bump, I'm really enjoying not feeling nauseated anymore so this is a good point in my baby story!

samelo21 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm at 20 weeks and just barely showing. I was overweight when I got pregnant so it isn't as noticeable to others just yet. I haven't gained weight (doctor monitors it well) but my belly is getting the roundness and I'm starting to look the part instead of just lumpy...

cuppcakequeen17 |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 20 weeks and not showing yet. I have a feeling any day now! I am not underweight, but I am definitely skinny and I am tall, so I think the baby just has more room in there because of my long waist. I am excited to pop but certainly dont mind being skinny a bit longer :)

dianacrai |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I am 14 weeks along. My clothes are fitting different but I don't have a noticeable bump. I was a healthy weight when I got pregnant. My friends see it but I don't. They can even feel the baby moving if they press where my uterus is. Then again one friend has had five kids so she pretty much knows how it goes :)

143BabyCakes |

Q&A: When will my belly begin to show?

I'm a dance teacher and dance almost every day. I'm petite but not dainty in the slightest- built more like a gymnast- stocky. Anyway- I didn't start showing until I was about 24 WEEKS pregnant. However, once I started growing, I really started growing. I'm still not as big as other expect me to be, but the doc measured my girl's weight a full week ahead of schedule. Sharing for those that are concerned. During those first several months, I wasn't sure if everything was okay, but the doctor kept assuring me it was all good!

ok2bway2 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Depends on everyone's body, The bigger you are the longer it takes to show, the smaller the quicker it takes to show. I'm 10 weeks and 3 days and i have just a bloat.

shandawinkler |

When will my belly begin to show?

6 wks today and nothing. However I am about 15 lbs overweight, which kind of is a bummer because I feel like I'm going to have one of those blobby pregnant bodies rather than the "I swallowed a basketball" bump.

lolabakerman |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am a mom of two and I have another one on the way I do belive that smaller size woman show sooner right around the 12-20 week mark and larger woman such as myself do not show till they are 7-9 months but it depends if its a girl or boy I have boys they did not show till the end that's normal and you look chunky with boys girls its the huge bump that's perfect I hope I have a girl this time

When i push on my lower tummy by my pelvic bone i have a sharp pain. And i dont understand why that is.. Any answers..

mybigdobbfamily |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 17 weeks and I still don't notice a bump. But, when I was at the doctor this morning he used a wand thingy to hear the babies heart beat and it was pretty close to my pelvic bone before we could hear it. The only thing I can figure is that maybe my uterus just sits really low in my pelvis.

Emu1085 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 16 weeks and I have lost 20 pounds from puking and all my clothes are too big for me. I don't look the slightest bit pregnant. Hoping I don't gain weight till the very end of my pregnancy.

aamullican |

When will my belly begin to show?

Tomorrow I will be 18 weeks with my first. I've gained 6 LBS and I was over weight before I got preg. My husband says he can see a little change, and my mom too but I just feel Fatter! My bottoms are getting a tigher and uncomfy though, so maybe I am starting to show? I dont feel like my boobs are growing much either. Should they be, or will it come later? My nipples burn and itch and are getting bigger but thats all I notice. This all normal?

lanea8712 |

When will my belly begin to show?

When i firsr found out i was pregnant i was 6 weeks and people said i had a belly. Truth is i was very bloated then lost A lot of weight from morning sickness and weighing only 115 pounds! Now im 16 weeks and people say i barely look pregnant so i think it has a lot to do with gas, bloating, constipation, etc. But everyone is different.

kmnina |

When will my belly begin to show?

This is my first pregnancy and I started showing at 9 weeks. I have a slender frame, but I am also having twins. I'm 10 weeks now and people are already noticing my babies :)

jehka |

When will my belly begin to show?

This is my first pregnancy too. I am 8 weeks and my pants are already a little tight. I have always carried my extra weigh in my belly and I think that the slight belly is due to my now-more-lax eating habits. Sigh....I wish it was the bump, but I don't think it is.

jennit1801 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I started showing around 10.5 weeks. I definitely was bloated for awhile and thought that could be the bump, but now I can tell the difference. I had my husband feel it and I think it helped make this real for him. I guess I'm showing a little bit early, probably because I was thin with a very flat stomach so it's pretty obvious I have a curve now, plus my doctor said my uterus is tilted forwards so maybe that pops it out. My sister showed really early with her pregnancy too.

ab1018 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I began showing at 21 weeks, to my husband and me. Strangers still can't tell I'm pregnant. I just look like I have a regular pouch. It's getting frustrating because a girl wants special treatment every now and then and it's hard to explain why I can't drink alcohol to German waiters (we're living in Germany.)

hmeiers |

When will my belly begin to show?

To all the women who have been asking if they'll show sooner if they're under or overweight: I'm by no means an expert on this or anything, but I watched my very thin cousin through her pregnancy and she didn't seem to show at all until the 4th month, and within the 7th & 8th she popped out like a beach ball. Then there is a woman in my church who is overweight, and she has been showing throughout the entire pregnancy- a noticeable difference. Like others have said though, it only seems natural that it would be different for everyone and each pregnancy.

vdhayes8611 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Expecting #2 and at 10wks my belly bump is here...it's small but definitely there. With my first pg, I didn't show until I was almost 6 months. I didn't lose the baby fat from the first time so that's a factor. I think it depends on how you're carrying...

ariellabe |

im 15 weeks and 2 days and it just looks like i got a pudge. i gained about 8 lbs already and it kinda shows. my belly still feels jiggly but not firm enough as most women i see are. is that normal?

enjoy your good fortune!! im 9 wks and my boobs have outgrown my bras, and some pants are too tight to wear anymore!!

rew1976 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I would say you should start "showing" at around 4 months. alot of women can hide their pregnancies well into their second trimester. My first pregnancy was 6 years ago and i started showing around 4 mo, but this one i have a feeling will be alot sooner. Bra size also rapidly increased these last 2 weeks, its crazy!

jonida13 |

jonida13 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Everyone is different! There is no set number. I'm 11 weeks and my already round belly has started to go from looking like a belly, and looking like a bump. It's becoming obvious to everyone even though I don't want to tell my employer yet!

Bride-hilda |

Im 17 weeks and barely showing it just depends on you, your baby, your uterus, and your diet/exercise.

i am about 6 weeks and i feel like i am already showing. my husband says i am not but i feel it. i have been wearing a lot of dresses and skirts to feel more comfortable. i think i am just being self-conscious. i have my first ultrasound tomorrow. I am so afraid of puffing up too quickly.

cbb722 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm at 24 weeks now and I've only had a noticable bump for maybe a couple of weeks now, and it's still not very big at all. I still haven't had to buy any maternity clothes, but I think that is only going to last a few more weeks since my doctor told me I'm going to start growing by the minute once the 3rd trimester hits. This is my first though so I'm sure that's why it's taken so long.

adamstentzel |

When will my belly begin to show?

I have lost 15 pounds now, been very sick with HG. I'm 12 weeks today. I'm guessing that I won't show for a while due to the weight loss and having strong stomach muscles. This is my first, but I do hope I stay small.

bekah90 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 8 weeks and last night my boyfriend pointed out that I'm "HUGE". Yep real ego boaster huh?!? He was talking to his mom and I was getting ready for bed when she happened to ask how I was doing. He said, and I quote "Mom shes huge. She looks like she should be over 3 months pregnant." His mom didn't believe him so he send her a picture. Her response was "Wow". Haha yep I def have a baby bump. And it scares me because it's my first pregnancy and I'm huge already!! Both of our sides of family are due for twins....could it be?!?! I'm officially scared lol.

alexandradenton88 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks, and I started to see a bump at about 8 weeks. I feel like I just look fat lol. Although I have been losing some weight, and only my stomach is getting bigger. I hear that the "bump" isn't quite baby yet, and that as women, we naturally start getting bigger once we become pregnant and our uterus is growing to make room for the baby.

JFranklin01 |

When will my belly begin to show?

with my fisrt i went to my ultrasound at 19 weeks and still not gaind any weight i didnt look pregnant at all my second i started showign a little earlier but i was noticably pregnany by about 15 weeks this ime around i am 12 weeks and have not gained any weight (lost actually) and have ben showing for a couple of weeks just depends on the pregnancy i dont think it has much to do with your weight because i weighted 130 the first time and 135 the second and 140 this time

CarterGarciasMommy |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 5 weeks of my first pregnancy and I know its not the baby yet but I do believe I have started to grow a baby bump because I was cutting vegetables and leaning somewhat againist the counter and it just didn't feel like my stomach bulge from putting on a couple pounds. I guess anything is possible right

olilirish1o |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 13.5 weeks and I really started noticing this week! None of my clothes fit and I am living in loose, flowy dresses. It's crazy to see your body go through this change!

JammyJams1219 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks along and although I know it isn't actually the baby my uterus is pushing my normal small amount of padding on my stomach out. My stomach is completely a different shape and very firm. A few close friends have noticed my bump but they did know I was pregnant. My boobs are definitely bigger, rounder and firmer. I am wearing maternity jeans now as I cannot stand any pressure on my stomach.

CalenFeaElen |

When will my belly begin to show?

I swear I started to notice a little "pooch" on my lower belly and my boobs growing by week 5. I have really irregular period, so I had no clue I was pregnant yet. When I noticed, I decided to take a test. Everyone else says I still look the same... maybe they are just being nice :) I also lost 25 pounds recently, so I think I am very aware of my body.

ldphillips |

When will my belly begin to show?

I didn't show until i was 7 1/2 months on my first pregnancy, then 4 months on my second and now that i'm on my fourth at 12 weeks im already showing. And before I got pregnant with any of my kids I was a size 0 and very fit. (mc on the third pregnancy)

AmandaMo2 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Good to know I'm not alone here! I'm 10.5 weeks and starting to see it pop out. I noticed right after 9 weeks hit that I could feel my uterus being harder, rounder and a bit bigger. Now I feel it's also higher. I also hold my hands over my belly so hopefully people will know I"m pregnant and not just fat! Only gained 7 lbs so far... I'm also very short and petite so there is not much room which is why I think I'm showing earlier.

littlelyralover |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 26wks and I am still not showing through clothes. I have a little baby bump but not much. It is my first but I have a friend that was way bigger then me around this time and she just had her first also. It is kind of a good think because I don't have to buy any new clothes but then again when people find out how far along I am they think I am doing something wrong because I am not showing. Sometimes I just want the joy of having that little baby bump.

Im almost 30 wks and not showing.. just looks like weight gain from being inactive or something. Im tall and curvy.. Maybe I have a lot of belly room?? It sort of scares me when people come up to me and say " omg your still small, are you eating enough?". And believe me, I eat.. Before I got pregnant I ran everyday and lifted weights. Now I just walk and do light lifting. Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll plump up.

I'm almost 16 weeks and starting to show, I started wearing maternity clothes at about 14 weeks though.

When will my belly begin to show?

I started showing at weeks 8-9. My Dr.. thought I had a) twins b)fibroids or c)Im further along cause when she checked me at 9 weeks my uterus is so big. She tried to hear the heartbeat but could so she sched my u/s right away. this is my pregnancy and I just bought my 1st maternity blouse (size S) cause im petite. :)

When will my belly begin to show?

I am at 15 weeks. My lower tummy started to pop out a little. I have gone up from a tight fitting small scrub size to swimming in a medium. I am happy to see some growth however my weight is down. I can't figure out how I look bigger but weigh a tad less. I am definetly looking forward to an obvious bump! I guess we can all learn from this board that each pregnancy is different! We are all beautiful any shape or size!

When will my belly begin to show?

Im 12 weeks going onto 13 weeks, im just barely showing. And more times than less i feel like im just bloated instead of actually showing. Im trying to be patient because it is my first baby so they say women show later. This "bloating" is teasing me and i just want my baby bump to show!

itstrista |

When will my belly begin to show?

At 5'1" and 95lbs when I found out I was pregnant, I was already gaining weight, and showing at around 10 weeks. Now at 12 weeks I just bought my first maternity top today! So exciting! Now people are starting to comment about me getting a lil belly.

esteffen87 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 12 weeks along now and I've noticed my baby bump! I'm a bit overweight so at first I told myself it was fat, but the bump is firmer than fat and is right where it's supposed to be. I hope I start looking pregnant to others soon. Maybe my teachers will stop glaring at me when I just HAVE to have a snack in class. :)

TessaDior |

When will my belly begin to show?

at about 8 weeks I was showing also, but not enough that people could tell. With each passing week I got bigger and bigger and now by week 14 I really look pregnant. It was sort of depressing me because I was worried about why i'm showing so much so soon. My doc confirmed that it wasn't twins so I was concerned that maybe something else is wrong. So I finally broke down and asked my doctor why i'm showing so much and honestly it all depends on the person, some people show early on while other show later in their 5th month or so. So don't worry, you'll show all in due time. :)

paulette1979 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 18 weeks and still don't show, but I was a bit overweight before getting pregnant. My doc says baby's heartbeat is still strong, so I shouldn't worry, but I do nonetheless. I do notice my pants feeling slightly tighter, as well as my shirts, and my breasts are quite sore and have grown, but still don't notice a "bump".

I"m 15 weeks and just starting to show... I think?!

jdarnley |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 12 weeks tomorrow. I don't have a baby bump yet even though I would like to blame my jeans fitting too tightly on a baby bump, I think I am just bloated. In the mornings I feel great and have a flat tummy but in the afternoon I get sour stomach and look like I'm hiding a small ball under my shirt. I did however get boobs way quick! I was an A and my bra was cutting in on me so I decided to go ahead and get sized so I could get a comfortable bra and to my suprise I am an overflowing C! My husband is not complaining!

mkayblagg |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm just over 8 weeks and feel bigger in the mid section... can't tell if its b/c I'm eating more/exercising less (probably!) or a little bump starting. Its different then the usual bloating I get and harder to suck in... we'll see!

boscac |

When will my belly begin to show?

I was shocked I already have a baby bump, a couple days before 12 weeks. I was skinny and in shape before I was pregnant, so I guess that is why I am showing quickly. The weird thing is I haven't gained a pound.

loriant06 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 1/2 weeks and not showing yet, but last week my belly was huge due to some really uncomfortable digestive issues. My friend said she could "see it" (the baby bump) and I told her it was my fat (since I've got quite enough there already). She said it was rounder, which I had noticed too, but I didn't want to make it awkward by telling her I was just really constipated. The next day I finally got rid of the problem and my belly is back to normal size, thank God. I haven't gone up a cup size yet, which concerns me a little. I'm just filling out the one I was wearing before. I've had some tenderness and have noticed the little bumps.

mariahskelton |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm really skinny and 15 weeks pregnant with twins and I haven't gained a pound. not showing at all! but i gone up a cup size thought.? is this normal? i'm eating a lot, but i lose five pounds? how did this happen? worries me.. i'm 100 pounds now, 5'7.. this is scaring me..

Rosemariehavingidenticaltwinboys |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 16 weeks and still not showing at all! This is my first pregnancy but my doctor told me that I was just "one of those people who may not gain much weight". I am still worried. I am losing weight not gaining!

jefferyandbritt |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 10 weeks pregnant and definitely showing. I've gained about 12 lbs! I can't button up my jeans but they seem to fit my thighs and butt okay, so I am using a belly band. My breasts are enormous (not in a good way!) went from a D to an E already. I am not overweight but in another 15 lbs or so I will be. This is my first baby and I am having a tough time not eating everything. I have never felt hunger like this in my whole life! All I want to do is eat! How do I curtail this?

TaraWilliams |

When will my belly begin to show?

This is my 4th pregnancy and I am 16 weeks and I am showing. I found out last week that I also have a tumor in my uterus that is growing also but they can't do anything till I deliver. Hopefully the tumor does not get as big as the baby which can happen.

BabyCharlee |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm almost 11 weeks and I definitely have a small bump. Like others, it's more noticeable in the evening than in the morning. My jeans can button, but they are uncomfortable when I sit down. I can't fill out maternity shirts yet, so I am loving leggings with my pre-pregnancy baggier shirts and long cardigans. This is my first pregnancy so I don't know what I "should" look like; but I went to my ob/gyn earlier this week and she says I've gained around 3 pounds and I'm still completely healthy. So I guess I'll be different than others and as long as the baby and I are healthy...then bring on the bump!

Benjalina |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 11 weeks and definitely have a little bump. I was slightly overweight (only by 3 BMI points) to begin with, and I've read that if you didn't have tight abdominals to begin with, those muscles will relax even more.

mrsminter |

Am 22 weeks and I still have not been showing. Crazy!!!

simonramos61 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am about 5'6 and normal weight was around 130-135. I am normally flat between my hips but at around 6 1/2 or 7 weeks my husband and I could see a curve starting. I'm now almost 9 weeks and if I pull my shirt tight you can see a definite round belly (no weight gain.) I don't look pregnant yet but am sure in the next couple weeks I'll "pop" & I can't wait!!!

JuliaGuliaAbc |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 12 weeks and you can see my belly some times, then other times you can't. I guess it's just how the baby is sitting or maybe I just have a "come and go" belly =] I always have that curved out part in between my hip bones, but the upper "belly" isn't there all the time.

Smbrown09 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 6 weeks along and in the beginning I had baby bloat. I'm a chunky monkey as it is. I can still wear my regular pants but they are tight and uncomfortable. Now at 6 weeks along, I can no longer "suck in my gut" lol... It feels hard under my belly. I think it's too early for me to show, but I am so uncomfortable I might use the belly band early. :)

Scarlson421 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I had a little bump at around 6 weeks. I am 15 now, and I see a big bump, but no one else seems to see it as much as my husband and I. I had a very flat stomach before, so I noticed the change right off the bat.

kevielissy |

When will my belly begin to show?

My first pregnancy I didn't show till around 7 months, but with my second I showed at baout 3-4 months. I am now almost 6 weeks and not really showing but my pants are getting a little tighter.

DaeeT |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm sooo glad I read this. I was so depressed. I'm only 8 weeks and I look like I'm 5 months. I never really had a flat stomach but gosh! I try to hide it because were not ready to tell everyone but it's getting harder to hide.

nekora |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm only 5 weeks and I can feel the teeny bump kicking in! it is my second child though, I think thath as a big factor on it

neekuuh |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 13 weeks on my first pregnancy. I am starting to show enough for people at work to be starting to comment. I am 5'2", so thinking my shorter height may be why I am showing already.

kl413 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Every pregnancy and every woman is different. Some women tend to show alot sooner then others. From personal experience, I don't really start showing until about 20 weeks and it varies from day to day. Soem days I feel like the baby is just out there while other days I feel like the baby is way in there lol. I noticed when I sleep on my back, I wake up with a flatter tummy; when I sleep on my side or on my belly, I wake up looking more pregnant.

danielamcc87 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 15 weeks and started to show a little around 14 weeks, it seems like overnight. There is quite a difference between my week 14 and week 15 pictures too. I had a slight "belly" earlier on but that was just bloating.

flowerbobbie |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm almost 10 weeks and today went shopping for maternity clothes. I don't know if its bloating or what. I do know my clothes were not feeling comfortable. My niece is almost 17 weeks and she barely shows this is her second child the first one she didn't show tell her third trimester. And then all she had was a little basketball. Imagine all of our surprise when the baby was born weighing 8lbs3oz the doctor said she carried him towards her back. That's why she didn't look huge.

Jennishungry |

When will my belly begin to show?

With my first, I didn't show AT ALL until after 20 weeks... the ultrasound technician asked if I was sure I was pregnant! I'm on the chunky side, but not too much, my boy just sat really low (through the whole pregnancy, really). At the very end, like the last 2 weeks, I just exploded!

chemqueen602 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 weeks & on my 3rd Pregnancy & swear I have a little baby bump. Even my husband has commented on my shirt being tight & showing my "baby bump". Is it just bloating or what? 9 weeks just seems to be pretty early to show...

harveymom1217 |

when-will-my-belly-begin-to-show

Great! Excited. I feel energized!

Stacier19 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I have always been significantly overweight and have the "double bump" someone else described earlier. I am 8 weeks along and have noticed that my pants are too tight. I recently got some maternity cargo pants and man are those comfy! I love them for work (I am a nurse). I didn't know I was pregnant until I was six weeks along, but my cat knew sooner! For a month or so before my positive HPT, my cat would not leave me alone! He followed me everywhere (which is unusual) and would lie on my stomach (again, unusual). At first I thought something was wrong with him, but he seemed perfectly healthy otherwise. Now, I guess he was just being super protective or something. He wouldn't even leave me alone to take a shower and would sit on the toilet meowing if he didn't hear me talking or singing! I am nervous that he may get jealous of the new baby or try to cuddle at night (SIDS risk!) so I am going to double check with my OB and the vet about solutions for pets and newborns. Any suggestions? Congrats to all!

i'm ten weeks and i'v been showing for about three weeks or so now.. but the chances of twins are very likely.

bowerslaura |

when-will-my-belly-begin-to-show

I am 23 weeks. I have a very curvy body type. I am a DD up top and have a smaller waist compared to my hips, and a large bum. I have always had a little bit of a tummy.. Wear size 12 in pants. 5'6" in height. At about 18 weeks I noticed my bump forming and now I have hit an awkward stage "is she pregnant or not?" I wear a belt right under my bust and that helps some confusion. There is a bump but because of how curvy I am it looks more fat: I believe that it will become more noticeable in 2-3 more weeks. :)

i am 23 weeks and 5 days and im still not showing alot i look 2months

cedmetra |

When will my belly begin to show?

Every woman is different. I keep getting comments about how big I already am. Some of them are quite negative. However, my doctor was actually excited that I started gaining weight! I lost 10 lbs in a week and a half due to a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum that causes me to be very sick. At around 8 weeks, I had to stop wearing the work slacks that were previously fitting well, if loose even. Now, at 12 weeks, I have to wear maternity jeans/pants. I haven't fully gained back the 10 lbs, but my baby is already moving up from my pelvic cradle (doppler found the baby a bit higher each time) and I am noticeably pregnant. I lost weight but my belly has expanded. I have a curvy figure and not much room between my pelvic bone and ribs, so that's probably part of the reason why I'm already showing so much. I met a woman who was 6 months pregnant and was smaller than I am! My doctor checked well for multiples and so far there's no sign of more than one baby. Ladies, do not believe what you hear about you showing too soon or not showing soon enough! My mother was 9 months pregnant and looked like she was maybe 5 months. I'm 3 months pregnant and already showing quite a bit. Every woman and every pregnancy will be different. Congratulations to all you expecting mothers!

spirithawk06 |

When will my belly begin to show?

With my first child, I finally got a baby bump at around 16 weeks, the bump stayed very small until I hit 34 weeks, then I just seemed to POP overnight, I gained 12 pounds in 1 week! Now i am 7 weeks pregnant with my second child, and I already have a baby bump. However, when I told my mom she said that isnt possible to show that early, that it just has to be bloating. I feel as though I am really showing though. Anyone else start showing really early with their second child?

Brittaniix3 |

when-will-my-belly-begin-to-show

I am 10 weeks pregnant with my second child(he was born almost 9 years ago. Although I am about average weight, I have not yet put on any weight and my belly is big and round. I'm looking about 5 months along already. Living every minute of it.

Cinowens2001 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 11 weeks pregnant with my first child and I am not showing at all. My mother in law always asks to see my belly and when I show her she always asks, "There's a baby in there?" or "Where's your belly?" I thought I was suppose to be showing by now. Clearly, I am not the only one who isn't showing

Aleka2013 |

when-will-my-belly-begin-to-show

I am 9 weeks with my second child, and I started to show at 7 weeks. With my 1st I didn't start showing till my 5th month. My doc says every pregnancy is different, and u start showing earlier with the second.

lbanting |

When will my belly begin to show?

12 weeks, first pregnancy, not showing. I am bloated and some outfits and times of day I look bigger than others but it's still a very soft tummy. I am a size 10/12 pre pregnancy & had a bit of a gut to begin with, I now just have a slighly more fluffy version of that ;) I don't think It's "showing" until it's firm as firm would confirm it's baby.

Cosmocity |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 6 and a half weeks and definitely bloated right now. I was embarrassed today because one of my students whispered something to a friend about thinking that I was pregnant. I really am, but it's not baby showing right now, it's bloating and weight gain. I'm going to use it as an excuse right now anyway.

cocopuff09120 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Im pregnant but i have no symptoms of pregancy im so worried!! im not even showing a baby bump yet. i want to be showing already.! my mom says its normal because every women is different she says i should be glad i dont feel sick and can actually enjoy my whole day without feeling sick... im just scared i hope im not the only one feeling like something is wrong???

lmeza22 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 12 weeks with my first and no bump, hopefully soon! Also, I have lost 5 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. The midwife said this is totally normal and my body will gain the weight when the time is right.

finnegsd |

I'm only 5 weeks but with my second child. My husband and our close friends can tell that I've got a tiny bump forming already!

kzcmnov10 |

It probably has a bit to do with body type too... My mom had a friend that didnt start showing until her 7th month! Tiny baby tiny mom.

I'm 15 weeks in my first pregnancy carrying twins. I am DEFINITELY showing. I've just started to really notice it this week though.

soon2bmrsdaniel |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 7 weeks along and several people have asked if I'm showing already. I think it's mostly just that I'm showing 'still'- I have a 6 month old and never lost the last 10 or so pounds from her ;) I am really looking forward to showing, though- I like it :)

Adelinesmommy |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost six weeks so I'm not showing, but I can't wait until I do. I hope my baby bump comes fast. I love baby bumps :]

lisamontoya |

When will my belly begin to show?

It varies with many women from what I have been told. I am 10 &1/2 weeks along and I am showing just a little. My friend was almost 4 months pregnant before she really started to show at all. So it just varies..

KristinaMM94 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Like the article said, your uterus won't be out of the pelvic cavity until week 12, so unless your first ultrasound showed multiples, the "bumps" you're seeing is bloat. Yeah, bloat. You're not going to show at week 9.

AnchorsUp |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 12 weeks and I am not really noticeably showing. Some times I look like I still have the six pack that I;ve always had and some times I look really bloated. Pants are still fitting and the wierdest part is I will weigh myself and be 145 (my prebaby wieght) and then weigh myself later and be 155 on the same day. It keeps fluctuating like crazy and it isn't the scale. My breasts have grown from a 34c to a 34F. I am so excited about my first baby...but the body changes are just wild. From all of the comments it seems like their is no "Typical" baby bump story. Everybody is so different.

Babyboyalon |

When will my belly begin to show?

With my first baby I didn't show until I was around 19 weeks. I'm 12 weeks with baby #2 and feel like it's starting to just barely be noticeable. Probably since my stomach muscles are non-existent after the last baby :)

Jsantiago |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 9 1/2 weeks with 1st pregnancy, and literally just last night noticed a bit of a bump....but sorta higher on my belly, right below my belly button. I typically have had a flat stomach, but I noticed that a 'pouch' along/below my belly button began to form. It was noticeably smaller this morning, but it is there and gets bigger throughout the day (after eating etc.) I haven't really gained any lbs yet (maybe 1/2 lb) so I am not sure where this pouch is coming from. It definitely feels 'awkward' b/c it isn't a round belly down below...Ugh, the changes in our bodies! :)

Ski0183 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 14 weeks 4 days! I feel like I'm showing, I am certainly budging out more on my tummy, and I have only gained 2 lbs the so far this pregnancy. Is this the baby or is it still bloating? I find out next Wednesday if hubby and I are team blue or pink! Cant wait!

Apelila3 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I would agree that it differs for every woman. I will say, though, that we did In-Vitro. My first pregnancy I was in Maternity clothes at around 3 months. However this time, I'm just over 5 weeks and already getting the big belly and boobs! LOL! I think a lot of it is from all the extra hormones I have to take right now. But I've had several people in the last few days ask me if I was pregnant (and I"ve always had a pudgy belly, but no one has EVER asked me if I was pregnant until now!! Thank God I can say yes! LOL!!!

CoriBarry |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost 15 weeks pregnant and just started showing and gaining weight this week. I saw my side profile in a window and was shocked!! I officially converted to maternity pants as they are way more comfortable!!! Bring on the bump!!

mlclancy |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am at 11 weeks today, and have been showing for the past 3 weeks. It's more noticeable this week, but it is quite obvious that it is a baby bump. I have gained about 7 pounds so far, which I know is higher than the recommendation, but I think at LEAST 3 pounds is from my boobs which have doubled in size. My ultrasound only showed one baby, so it's not twins. I've been weaning maternity clothes and loose dresses for the past 2 weeks. I hope everything is ok! I recently had a blighted ovum and a D&C a few months ago, and during that pregnancy I also expanded much faster than most.

gracelanger |

j0llietime |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 8 1/2 weeks and not really showing ( I didn't expect to this early!), but my dress slacks for work which I wear very fitted and tailored are a no go anymore! I'm sure it is because I am bloated. So I have maternity work slacks on already just because I wanted to be comfortable at work. I still fit in my regular jeans and capris. And my maternity slacks look exactly like my other slacks so no one is the wiser! We have told very few people, so we are trying to get through the first trimester before we share with everyone. No belly to show for pregnancy but I sure do have the bloat, the fatigure, the extremely sore boobs, dizziness and occasional nausea to show for it!

onetallredhead91977 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 12 weeks and my husband and I can see a noticeable difference in the size of my belly. But when I try to talk to other women about it they act like its all in my head. As if a bigger belly this early is even possible. All I can say is my pants definitely don't fit like they used to and I haven't gained any weight.

j0llietime |

Im 33-34 weeks and i didn't start showing til a few weeks ago. my doc was never worried cause everything was normal.he said not to worry cause everybody is different. i even had people at work who didn't believe i was pregnant cause i had not bump. my mom was the same way and she had five kids.

sarahfarmer88 |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am almost 6 weeks and I am now showing. It is unbelievable that my stomache is completely bloated and it is probably due to the progesterone support shots I am taking. It is really hard to hide it and at this rate, there is no way I can keep this a secret for 12 weeks unless I go into complete hibernation. The Doctor said the progesterone can bloat you out and expected weight gain is 5lbs the first month. I am glad sweater season is here.

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10w 4 days and my bump started to show when I hit 10w. I kept calling it my dinner bump, but it is still there and more firm than I think an actual dinner bump would be. This is my first pregnancy. I just keep thinking if I am showing this early, I'm going to get huge fast. Ha

kao191 |

When will my belly begin to show?

Baby bumps also depend on your weight and size. I'm extremely tall and slightly plus sized... didn't get a noticeable baby bump until the end of 7 months. Even then, no one could TELL I was pregnant. lol

KillJeffy |

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 weeks and already in maternity pants! I feel like this is not normal. It isn't twins, and I'm 5'6'' and have always been petite. I think that's why I may be showing earlier. Either way, I'm in either leggings of maternity clothes at this point. Good luck ladies!! :)

lizparkerdenver |

When will my belly begin to show?

I am 5'2" and weighed 113 going into pregnancy (this is my first) - I am now about 13 weeks and I have a little bump - I get funny looks at the gym like people are trying to figure out if it's a beer gut or a baby bump :) As others have said above, it depends on your build, pre-pregnancy weight, etc - everyone is different!

I was around 8 wks (this is my first) and started noticing a bump. I'm 12 weeks now and all of my pants most definitely don't fit. I'm wearing the bella band and long scarves. My boobs and belly just don't want to stay contained. I'm going maternity clothes shopping this weekend.

I understand the frustration ladies! I keep hearing that I am "showing too much" for my 10 week status....even though I haven't actually GAINED any weight...It has all just shifted to my mid section.

EBROCK11 |

When will my belly begin to show?

"i'm 12 weeks, and not showing at all :( it worries me sometimes....when will i start gaining weight or showing??? " - Mrs.Smartt92807 | I'm the same way except I'm 14 weeks pregnant. I can tell a little in my pants etc., but other than that I just look a little bloated - people keep making comments that when they were 3-4 months pregnant they "were huge" It kind of makes me worry that baby isn't growing as it should...

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm now 26 weeks with my first and getting larger and larger by the moment (or so it seems). I started showing at about 6-7 weeks - LONG before we wanted to publicly acknowledge our pregnancy. I had a little pooch that was obviously more than just bloating. I was thin/athletically built before, with "normal" proportions (i.e. not a long or short torso). I have a friend with similar proportions and she didn't show until closer to 4 months. Yes, months. It completely depends on your body. After reading other comments, it apparently also depends on the pregnancy too. Such joy!

When will my belly begin to show?

I'm 10 weeks with my first and only 5 feet 1 inch with a short torso. I'm starting to show and my work clothes are getting tight.
