When did everyone start showing???

I'll be 12 weeks on Tuesday and I feel like I have a huge belly haha. At first it would only show during the afternoon/later at night, but now when I wake up it is still there. Could it be bloat or could I be showing this early? This is my first by the way.

    It's more likely it's just bloat still especially if this is your first. 

    With DD1 I started showing at 22-24 weeks. Everyone is different, though.

    Bloat. If you are showing baby, it doesn't come and go. At 12 weeks, baby is so small and just starting to rise above your pubic bone.

    With my first, I started to show around 16 weeks. I get bloated toward the end of the day with this one, but I'm back to "normal" by morning. I'm not showing, and I don't suspect I will be for quite some time.

    With DD I felt like I started showing around 14 weeks. But I was super bloated before that also.

    I'm 9 weeks and I look pregnant.  My mother and everyone notices. However, it probably is just a bloat.

    Agreed, but she said that it's there all the time now. 

    With my first I started showing around 11-12 weeks, so it's definitely possible. Yes, everyone is different and most don't show until later but not everyone.

    It's possible to be showing. Everyone is different. I didn't show until at least 20 weeks, but I have a few friends that literally started showing right away. So just go with it!

    I'm 14 weeks and still am not showing baby yet - mine is just bloat still that comes and goes.  I am hoping in the next 2-4 weeks I will start to get a cute bump!

    With my first I was showing around 17 weeks which is pretty early for a first pregnancy. It turned out I was carrying way out front and by the time I got to the end I had a huge torpedo belly. It was super uncomfortable.

    bloat... a little water weight mixed with gas and likely a little extra weight your body is starting to save. :) I'm 8 weeks and look 4 months along! LOL So, when people ask, I just tell them my bloat belly is baby belly...As far as I'm concerned I'm showing...after all, the bloat is from baby ;) No one needs to know its just fat, water and gas LOL

    *Lurking from TTGP*

    I didn't officially start showing until after 20 weeks, but I felt like I was from about 8 weeks on.

    I started showing around 20 weeks, but 25 weeks was when someone actually recognized me as pregnant and not just round.

    Lurking from TTGP. I started showing around 10-11 weeks with my first, but that was from excessive amniotic fluid. I was measuring 2 weeks ahead. Everyone and every pregnancy is different.

    This was me at 23 weeks.  Prior to that, I really wasn't showing- I kinda popped all of the sudden but that being said, I was probably pushing out a little and at just the right angle to even get it to look that big lol

    I feel the same way! It's almost embarrassing when people ask if I'm pregnant because I know it's not baby. I kid you not, I was 5 weeks when people noticed my (bloat) belly pooch and started asking. I guess spending so much time being pregnant the past couple of years hasn't been kind to my stomach muscles.

    For the record, my bloat has not gone away even the slightest little bit since 5 weeks. I don't think that's really an accurate way to tell if it's bloat or baby.

    I felt like I was showing early, too, but now that I'm 37 weeks.. I realize that was crazy. As a lot of pp's have said... it's bloat. I started wearing the belly band at 8 weeks though because the bloat was so uncomfortable. And my DH & BFF agreed the bloating was noticeable.. which can be mistaken for a small baby bump... but not really to others. Others started noticing mine at 16/17 weeks.

    I've been asked if I was pregnant when I was most definitely not.  This was extra weird since I am pretty slender; but when I bloat, I BLOAT.  Now that I am pregnant (albeit only four weeks), I figure that when I get bloated I'll look like I'm mere weeks away from giving birth.  C'est la vie!

    Hmmm... It seems like everyone thinks their showing early. I didn't start showing until the end of week 17.

    I had my aunt reach out and fondle my blump at seven weeks. I almost hit her. I'm showing a heck of a lot of flab and gas, that's for sure.

    With DS I started showing at 16 weeks if you knew me.  If you didn't know me I looked like I ate too much.  I started really showing around 18 weeks.  I am incredibly small- framed so I showed a litle earlier than most people I knew that were pregnant at the same time.

    This. I agree, just go with it! That's all you can really do. Either way I see it, if you're pregnant and your pants don't fit, it's probably because of the baby. Just because it may be bloat doesn't mean you should feel bad and hide it. These are normal pregnancy symptoms so embrace that belly!
