Pregnant after 35

When did you start showing?

I'm wondering how long I'll have before it's hard to keep my pregnancy under wraps at work. With DD1 I "popped" at 16 weeks but I've heard it's usually sooner with subsequent kids. I know every woman is different, but when did you all start showing?

  • This is the quickest of my 4 pregnancies that I have showed before. I think at 10/11 wks I had a good bump going on.

  • I'm overweight to begin with so I think I hid it better. But I was definitely protruding a bit more (for lack of a better term!) by 10w or so. I'm a STM and I was not like this with my first. Now at 19w I'm feeling relatively enormous.

  • I am a bigger girl, size 18-20, pre pregnancy and I feel like I got bigger. I still haven't been asked about when I am due but I do have a rounder belly around 12-13 weeks.

  • Totally depends on the woman. This is my 2nd and at 9w this is what my stomach looked like. And sure I was really thin to begin with, but with the same frame I didn't have much if anything till almost half way last time...

  • I started showing at 14-15 weeks with twins... I am on the heavier side so I don't think people really started to notice until 16 weeks.

  • I'm 9 weeks and have had 5 people ask me if I'm pregnant.  So "showing" or "bloat" whatever, people can tell.

  • I am just over 9 weeks and you can tell I am pregnant. I am a pretty small girl. This is my 4th soooo yep it is nothing like the first. My second I showed a lot quicker, but not like the last 2!  I am very very bloated but I can also tell that my uterus is popping out. I will have to start telling people soon!

  • @BabyBliss76‌, @topaz7777‌, @harmonicbabe26‌ at 9 weeks! and @banana2020‌ and @mandyreads, 10 weeks! Oh my gosh! I was expecting more like a month earlier like @gremaud07‌ and @ksgsmu‌. Well my first appointment with u/s will be at 9 weeks, and if we see the heartbeat I would feel safe enough to share. But WOW!

  • This is my first and my stomach popped out last Thursday at 11 weeks. Kind of a combo of bump and bloat but can't suck in anymore none the less.

  • I'm having my third. I'm 19w 4d. I'm not really showing yet. If I wear a tight shirt you might wonder if I'm gaining weight but I don't think you'd assume pregnancy. I have a large chest and I've been able to hide all my pregnancies until around 5 months.
  • @supersarah77, My MIL actually called me out on it yesterday.  Guess it's no longer my secret.  Oh well, I'll have to tell the family.  I really wasn't ready yet.

  • I looked a lot like @harmonicbabe26 around the same point (I'm a similar build) with my second.  I didn't start getting the "are you pregnant" "look at your bump" comments until I was much further along, though (closer to 20 weeks).  I could tell, but I don't think it was as obivous to other people who didn't know, if that makes sense- like they probably noticed that I was looking portly, but couldn't tell if I was pregnant or just gaining weight.  My husband has said that he thinks I'm smaller this time around so I think that I was showing at about the same point with my first, although I had to switch to maternity pants much sooner with #1 (like 8 weeks), where I was able to keep squeezing into my regular pants until closer to the end of the first tri with my second (I think I'm carrying a little higher this time).

  • Hmm... not sure. I am 13wks and just look bloated so far. I'm tall with a slim-medium build. Smallish boobs are going to be my downfall. The belly will stick out farther than the boobs before too long!

  • I was a size 14ish before both pregnancies. With the first, I hit the fat-vs-pregnant stage around 15 or 16 weeks, but I wasn't clearly pregnant until around 26-27 weeks.

    Now I'm 10 weeks along and already at the fat-vs-pregnant stage.

  • Hi, in just lurking as I have already had my baby, but the saying that every person and every pregnancy is different is really true.

    I just had my 4th.
    With my first I could see a difference by 3 months, but other people couldn't tell until around 4.5-5 months.
    My second was about the same.
    Third time, I didn't see it til 4 months and others started asking around 5 months.
    This last time I didn't see a difference until about 26 weeks. (Yes, 6 months). Very soon after I 'popped' and people started asking at 28 weeks where I had been hiding it. It seriously just appeared out of nowhere.

    I was pretty thin (underweight) with #1 and have gained 15 lbs since then, so still not overweight or big in anyway.

  • With my first: 16 weeks
    With my second: 9 weeks (of course bloat, but I couldn't hide it any longer)
    With this one? We shall see!
