1st Trimester

Are you showing yet? If so, when did you start?

Okay, I find this really weird and I don't know if it's just in my head or not. I only got my BFP 2 days ago and I'm like 4 weeks along. The day I tested I was wearing jeans that seemed to fit well, however, I did notice that I had pooch in my stomach that day. I thought I was just having a fat day. I could swear my belly has been slightly bigger each day since. Is this happening to anyone else?

Re: Are you showing yet? If so, when did you start?

  • Im showing now...at about 10 weeks however I am having twins and am 5'1, 113 (pre-pregnancy).

    I did have bloat as early as 5 weeks though....so no worries. as my husband says, "well you ARE pregnant!!"

  • I have a flat stomach but it looks so bloated now...not like a bump either i look wider ...more so than i did 2 weeks ago
  • I wouldn't say I'm "showing", but I've had enough bloat for my clothes to be uncomfortable for sure. On bad days, I look about 4 or 5 months pg.  :O

    Trust me, when you are actually showing, you'll know the diffference. It's just way too early for that at this point.

  • You're bloated. Mine is bad. It looks like I'm 14 weeks pregnant. But this is my second.

    With DS I got a noticeable bump at about 16-18 weeks.

  • I had a really bad bloat at 4-5w but that subsided quickly.  I have a fairly flat stomach so for myself and my husband, we can tell I'm sporting a small bump (new this past week).  I don't think anyone else would be able to tell in all honesty though.

  • Yup, I've got bloat going on. Have been for weeks now. My jeans do not fit comfortably anymore, I broke down yesterday and bought a Be Band from Target. LOVE IT!

  • If this is your first, yes, it's in your head that you're showing 2 days after your BFP.  That, and you're likely bloated.  

    I'm bloated, but don't expect to show for at least a month (6w now).

  • I am showing, I am pretty small anyways so its pretty noticeable. I started last week, which I am 12w1d now, I need to change my ticker..

    I was super bloated for several weeks, but I can tell a big difference from my bloat to this little bump. My stomach also got really hard when I started showing.

  • I have a tummy, so I don't think I will "show" for a little while still, however, right above my pubic bone it's really hard, so I am assuming that is baby.

    (I do rub my bloat and pretend the baby is there...it would look weird I think if I rubbed my crotch and talked to it. This way is much more acceptable.)

  • 4 weeks is early to show.

    Im sure its just bloat.

    Im 8 weeks and am NOT showing but am very bloated. 

  • this is my second and I started showing early.  Like 6-7 weeks.  I've been noticeably pregnant since about 10 weeks (thankfully I swear scrubs at work and can hide it!).  Anyway, my showing this early is not at all surprising seeing as with my son, friends started telling me I was showing at 13-14 weeks.

  • My flat stomach is no longer flat but much rounder which starts very low, just above my pubic bone. I am not showing to anyone else but it's definately noticeable to me. I am pretty tiny 5ft3 115lbs With long legs and a small torso so the baby has nowhere to go but out

    Bahaha!  Thanks for the laugh!

    Just today, I'm starting to feel bigger.  I'm not sure if it's baby or bloat, but either way the real bump is just around the corner and I'll have to kiss my favorite jeans bye-bye for a while.

  • With my first I hid it until 16 wks from work, but started wearing maternity pants around 13 wks.

    This time I am still hiding it (barely) and I started wearing maternity pants yesterday.

    I have been bloated for weeks though.  I am also short-ish (5'4") with a short torso so I think that works against me. LOL.

    Probably just bloated! lol! Not trying to burst your bubble,but I found out I was preg at 5 weeks, and a week later my jeans were tight! It never really went away either.

    With all due respect, your baby is the size of a poppyseed, so you are not showing yet.  The first few weeks you may be very bloated - I certainly was with my first.  It subsided and then I started showing around 20 weeks.  Of course everyone will show at different times, but it's not happening at 4 weeks.

  • Hi im pregnant with my second child and with my first i didnt show until about 15 to 20 weeks so im almost 7 weeks now and i do not have a flat tummy i have a bit of a pooch from my first so im wondering when i will expect to show with this one..will it be considerably late since i got a pooch?
  • its probably bloat. I didnt actually start showing bump till a few weeks ago. there was bloating but now Its very significant.

    Hahahaha!!!  This is me, too!  I only rub my above-crochetal area when I am alone, lol.  I can definitely feel something hard right above my pubic area.

  • I feel like i'm showing. I'm 5'0 and 86 pounds with abs.I have a 6 year old and I'm 7 weeks. At 5 weeks I KNEW I was pregnant because my abs didn't look right, they looked....."soft-ish" as my husband put it. I consider my bloat "showing" because I can't see my abs.....but everyone's different. I didn't 'show" until I was 7 months pregnant with my daughter. I woke up one morning and it's like it happened overnight. lol
  • Around 10 weeks I started noticing I had more weight in my belly. I was thinking maybe bump was starting but it was just bloat and weight gain. Felt huge for the last month and now a little bump is starting to take shape! Did not have a flat tummy before but the "gut" as I've been calling it lately is looking more obvious at 14 weeks. Even if your belly isn't getting bigger it's still exciting and your ready for the world to see your good news...can't wait for that bigger bump!
