Showing?

When can I expect to start showing...I have heard 4 months for your first baby but I know it is different for everyone. How soon did you start showing with baby #1?

    No one can tell you. It can be at anytime. It depends on your body

    I popped at 17 weeks. I don't think it was really obvious to strangers until maybe 25 weeks.

    With my first, I was in maternity clothes by 10 weeks.  But I wasn't "showing," I just looked fat.  I didn't look pregnant until about 20 weeks.

    6 1/2 months with my first.  And even then, I was only showing to me and my husband.

    This is my first pregnancy and I didn't start to really show until around 20 weeks. That was around the first time a stranger asked if I was expecting. I could not for the longest time put on weight which I think affected it. Now everyone can tell I am pregnant and I wish I could stop putting weight on. lol

    Strangers didn't start saying things to me until I was 27 weeks along.

    I remember I could still button my jeans at 15w (although it was rather tight).  I know on two separate occasions when I was 30w people were surprised to learn I was pregnant, but I thought it was pretty obvious by then.  So I guess somewhere around the middle of my pregnancy for me?

    This. Before that I just looked fatter. I think I got my first stranger comment around 35 weeks.

    I could see a belly by about 16 weeks, but in clothes I didn't really look pregnant at all until 20+ weeks.

    I think it really depends on your body type. I am very thin, and at two months i started to poke out past my hipbones and show.  By the time I hit 18 weeks, I was in maternity clothes.  Now at six months, people are asking me when I am due, because t must be soon.  Wheras my sister-in-law still could barely tell at six months.
