Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
With my son, I started really showing around 15 weeks.
This pregnancy, since its my second and twins, I feel like I showed way earlier.
With my first I didn't wear maternity clothes until about 17 weeks, and wasn't visibly pregnant until around 20.
This time, I've been in maternity for a couple of weeks, and am showing enough that strangers have commented. I guess my 9 lb first child stretched my stomach out quite a bit. lol
kfrix13:I didn't show with my first until 19 weeks. This time around I was showing at around 12.
I think I was around 18-19 wks for my first pregnancy...and I'm starting to get a little bump now @ 12 wks... Others probably wouldn't say I'm showing yet, but in the evenings, there's no hiding it!
I'm 13 weeks and a few days and no longer fit in ANY of my pre-pregnancy cloths (sans sun dresses and a couple skirts). However, I am also 5 foot 0 and only weighed 113 at week 5 when I found out. I'm only 115 now but the baby has all of my insides smooshed up into my rib cage already. I wake up in the morning and look almost like normal but by the end of the night between food and liquids my tummy is quite rounded, much to the delight of family.
Don't worry I'm sure your body will develop its pooch soon. Ive heard that most women really don't start showing until midway through their 2nd trimester, when they all of a sudden just 'pop.'
I'm just under 12 weeks and I'm in my maternity uniform (Air Force uniform) and I have had to buy some maternity bottoms. This is our first child. The scale hasn't really changed, I just am showing quickly. I'm a very healthy eater, so it's not that I'm eating "for two", or eating bad, etc...I am only 5'3" and have an athletic build, so some have told me it's because of my body type is the reason for me showing quicker. I wouldn't worry if you're not showing yet.
With my first 2, I wasn't in maternity pants until 15w and maternity shirts around 20w. It wasn't totally obvious that I was PG until sometime after that. This time around, I think it will be sooner. I don't have many pants left that fit.
