I'm 12 wks and 4 days I know its a Lil early to show but when did u mommas start to show on your first pregnancy and what was your starting weight and height?

Re: When will I start showing?

  • With my first pregnancy I wasn't visibly pregnant until 18-20 weeks. I'm 5'8" and I was 140lbs back then.

  • I just looked a little chubby until somewhere around 25 or 26 weeks.  I'm 31 weeks now and if I wear the right clothes I can still hide it pretty well if I need to. I wasn't particularly big pre-pregnancy (5'6", 175-ish), I just carry close into my spine.

  • I didn't get so much as a pooch until 14 weeks, and it wasn't a visible, obvious bump until around 23. It varies person to person, though.

  • With my first baby I started at 5'4" and 150 lbs and didn't show until dang near 20 weeks. I carried super low and had a smaller baby though. 
  • Started at 5'4" 120lb, started showing at 18w.   My final weight was 163

  • Started showing around 18 wks. 5'-2" and 110lb
  • Yep, 18/19ish weeks. I'm average height and started at 118. I mean, I looked different before the 18 week mark, but I don't think it was a convincing bump before then.

  • I'm 5'4, weighed 147 when I became pregnant and began showing around 17-18 weeks.  At 14 weeks, is when I started to look like a gained some weight in my belly, but it wasn't a noticeable bump, for a few more weeks. 

  • With my first I started showing sometime after 23 or 24 weeks but not enough that I couldn't hide it if I wanted to. I was 5'0 and 95 lbs to start. 
  • About 24 weeks with the first and then 22 weeks and 20 weeks with the 2nd and 3rd, respectively. 
  • I was 5'6" 155 pre-pregnancy and have gained 4 pounds. I'm 12 weeks and definitely have a rounded belly. Not sure if its a bump or bloat but I had bloat earlier and this looks different, more prominent. I find it kind of odd because its my first pregnancy to possibly be showing this early, but if so I know it can happen and doc said everyone is different so it is what it is! ;)

  • Your weight doesn't have a whole lot of bearing on when you will show, it's more about where baby and your uterus are. I was bloated as hell from the getgo, but didn't get an actual bump until 27 weeks because LO was situated way far back on my spine (which felt lovely, btw).

  • Even at 12 weeks, it's still bloat... Your uterus is still behind your pelvis.

    I am 5'6" and was 130 pre pregnancy and started having a small bump at 18weeks BUT only the people who knew me know that I was not more fluffy. I'm now 29 weeks and strangers are starting to ask about my pregnancy. I only started to look really pregnant for the outside world around the third trimester
