It depends on the individual. I started showing a little bump at about 6 weeks. It was mostly bloating, but after 8 weeks or so, it was obviously a 'baby tummy'. Now I'm 11 weeks and happily look pregnant =)

I am only 6 weeks pregnant (second pregnancy) and I am already showing too! I'm glad I stumbled upon this topic. I figured it was probably due to the fact that the muscles were stretched in the past from baby #1. I'm glad I'm not alone!

Started showing at 6 weeks. Currently at 11w2d and people either think i'm carrying twins or WAY further along, at least 5 months preggers. Why all the excess water?

I showed before I even tested. Dr. thought multiples but instead I had one BIG baby girl. I looked 5 months by end of first trimester and looked like I swallowed a few globes by the time I hit the third. People were asking me if I should be out when I was so close to delivery in November and I wasn't due till March!!! And I had just come from the military so I know my muscles were toned and strong. Just something in my genes I guess! Best wishes.

Okay first of all you are all bloated!! the baby is so small at 6 weeks!! There is no way that you're showing! This is my 4th pregnancy and I won't '"show" until 12 weeks or so! And that is only b/c I"m stretched out from having 3 babies before! Now I don't want to seem mean or anything b/c I have a belly too but I know it's not the baby...it's bloating. Try eating high fiber foods and drinking plenty of fluids that should help. Try not to overeat in the early weeks either, b/c the baby doesn't need it and you may put on unwanted weight. Hope I was of some help.... good luck 1st time mommies!! Robyn DD 4/19/99 DS 5/4/01 DS 1/7/04 EDD 12/23/06

i think it's a combination of bloating, and sadly, your uterus not being as taut as it once was. i am almost 9 weeks pregnant (with # 2) and was so uncomfortable in my regular clothes that i pulled out my maternity clothes last week! with my first - id idn't start showing until about 5 months!

I am pregnant with my first, and I am currently 10 weeks, I am super excited about this pregnancy, but a little sad that none of my jeans fit. I am tall and slender, (was a size 4, 5'9") but you can already tell i have put on weight. I dont know if this is normal either, but I am glad to know other people are experiencing this, and maybe I am not just getting "fat"....also I was wondering, does anyone know when you get your first ultra-sound? Im only 23, so I dont know if the doctor waits longer to get one??

With my first pregnancy I was abot 6 months when I started showing but the second pregnacy I was showing by like 6 weeks evrybody thought I was further along b/c of it but I think that was mostly bloating now this pregnancy so far Im just bloating I get embarrased a bit cause me youngest is only 7 months and I didn`t quite lose all my tummy yet so now I just look funny.LOL. I am ony 4 weeks or so. I hope I can last a bit longer this time b4 showing to much Im trying to keep exercising this time and really watching what I eat.

Im 5 weeks and all my clothes r a lil tight now. I feel so bloated, and you def. can tell.

I am pregnant with my third and I am 7 weeks pregnant. I am already showing and had to go out and buy maternity pants. Everyone notices my belly growing, I don't feel like this is normal and starting to feel a little emotional.

 

danielle-marie - June 26

Its emotional for me too, espcially how I was so fit before! I feel like my hips have widened, and my stomach is bloated! (im now 12 weeks!!!) I keep reminding myself that this is healthy weight gain, although its still hard for me to motivate myself to continue working out, when the results are just going up....

Hey everybody, I just found out last week Thursday that I am pregnant, which makes me 5 weeks this week. I was wondering if any of you were a plus size before you got pregnant? I am plus size but have issues with the jeans I just had on 2 weeks ago, it's crazy. Is it my imagination?

 

JB0405 - June 26

I forgot to say that this is my first pregnancy!

 

Mzwest83 - June 27

I am 5 weeks with my 3rd. I though I was going crazy! I am wearing my big pants( the pants I wear after thanksgiving !!) and they are tight! I have some maternity pants but feel silly wearing them. But I am so bloated That it bothers me to have something around my stomach that is so tight!
