Pregnant after a Loss

Is there a "when did you start to show" thread someone can point me to?

mobile: Is there a "when did you start to show" thread someone can point me to?

If so, ignore this, if not... curious when your PG became clear to others. Mister D would like to wait to share until his b-day which will be 17w.  Confused

I don't know/doubt if we can make it that far and still be visibly hiding it.

thanks.

Re: Is there a "when did you start to show" thread someone can point me to?

  • I think a lot of when you are showing is dependent on your body.  I personally thought I was showing at around 15 weeks but looking back at pictures it was hardly anything noticeable! We didn't really have an option to wait to share because my morning sickness was so severe we couldn't conceal it. I guess there's a chance you could keep it a secret until his BD, but don't be surprised if people are on to your secret before then!

  • I was in maternity pants at 12w. I'm at 17 now and I am very obviously pregnant even to strangers. But that's me, everyone is different. There was a girl at yoga last night who was 20w and still had a completely flat stomach. B!tch. J/k. :-)

    I'm 18 weeks and not showing. I definitely have a little extra weight in the middle, but not a bump, just the same bloat I've had since 6 weeks. FWIW, I'm 5'9 and my cousin who is due 3 days ahead me and only 5'4 was noticeably showing two weeks ago.

  • Thanks all, not sure what to expect and I know everyone's different. The gals in my office tend to announce around 15-20 weeks, and I had no clue they we're PG many times, despite being highly alert (PGAL mode) of pregnancies.

    I'm 5'8" and at 9w4d today still in normal jeans/pants etc... also tend to wear more loose clothing (tunics etc...) that's are not body conscious, if that makes sense. 

    I think (obvs?) we'll play it by ear. We've already talked about it possibly not working out for him, and he's ok with that.

  • I am tall (6ft) and thin. To me, I couldnt really tell there was a bump until about 18 weeks. (I could tell pudge, but not bump.) Most people didnt notice until well after 20w.

  • I switched to maternity at 13 weeks, but I was using a belly band the entire pregnancy before that (Thank you PIO bloat!). I started to see a bump myself around 11-12 weeks. We announced at 14 weeks, but people said they suspected something before that; they told me that I was showing for a week but they didn't want to say anything (I guess in case it was just fat).

    I noticeably had a baby bump that strangers would comment on by 16 weeks. 

    So you could probably keep it a secret that long, people will likely suspect you're pregnant but they maybe wouldn't ask you until its really noticeable.

  • I thought I was showing at 15 weeks.
    At 18 weeks I went to California to see my family, and no one noticed I was pregnant until we actually told them. I wasnt particularly hiding it, but not blantly dressig for it either. My father made a comment like "I thought you were looking a little thick around the middle". Thanks dad.

    I thought I was REALLY showing at 20weeks, like I'm not even bother hiding it at work showing. Then at 26 weeks, my co workers over heard me talking I a colleague about being pregnant, and the dress I was wearing made me look huge, and everyone in the office was like "I had NO idea!!!"

    Point being, your perception of yourself is VERY different than others are of you. Tell when you want to, not because you feel you have to.

  • Taking into account that I'm a little fluffy in the middle to begin with (was a size 10-12 pre-pg), and I have a pretty short torso (so, nowhere for baby to go but out)...

    DH and I could tell around 14-15 weeks, people who knew me well and saw me every day started to notice around 17-18 weeks, and I got my first random comment from someone who didn't know me between 20-21 weeks.

  • I'm showing. I *might* be bigger than mightymousy, who is about 19 weeks (I'm 10w5d now), but it's a close call. Her belly is adorable, btw. <3

    BUT I've carried a (giant) baby full term and another into second tri, and I'm packing twins so things are having to expand a little more quickly at this stage.

    I had to go to mat pants at 9 weeks with my first, but most people didn't know I was pregnant until I told them around 13 weeks. I popped really quickly after that. Someone offered me her seat on the subway at 14 weeks on the dot. :/

     

  • I really think it just depends on your body and genetics. Everyone told me it was just bloat, just bloat, not showing...but I swear I started showing around 12 weeks if not sooner. As soon as I told people at work, they all said they had suspicions because of my belly. I know with your first you supposedly don't show as soon, but man. At this rate I'm going to be showing before the second pee line shows up with the next one (if I'm lucky enough to have another!).

    FWIW, I didn't really show sooner with my second, but when I started to show it popped faster, if that makes sense. I've heard that with subsequent children you don't necessarily get bigger, but you get big faster and then growth might be slower in the later weeks.

    I know a girl who's pregnant with her third in four years. She's 16 weeks. She looks like I did at 35 weeks. I hope it stops for her soon. :/

    That makes sense. I feel like I kind of started off fast and have leveled out a little. I haven't gained an alarming amount of weight so I'm not particularly worried about it. But it was harder to hide and I'm getting a ton of, "are you positive there's only one in there??" comments. At least no strangers are rubbing my belly yet! *knock on wood*

    I'm pregnant with my 3rd in 4 years also, my belly is huge already. I have a friend who is 18 weeks and I am easily as big as she is :0/ I'm tall and on the thinner side so it's easy to tell its a baby bump thankfully.

    But I work with women who is 18 weeks and unless she is hearing something tight, it's hard to tell she's pregnant

  • I am not really around much anymore. Wile MH and I haven't officially said "we're not having kids" it's pretty much going that way so I've found it's easier to just stay away from the bump altogether.

     I've heard that with subsequent children you don't necessarily get bigger, but you get big faster and then growth might be slower in the later weeks.

    This was/is true for me.

    I was obviously showing with my first around 18 weeks. With this one, I had a noticeable bump at 14 weeks. I'm 39 weeks now and I'm smaller than I was when I gave birth to my first at 38 weeks.
