I'm 13 weeks and it's already obvious that I'm pregnant. This is my first pregnancy, so I only have this one to go by. Did anyone else start showing this early with their first?

Just wanted to give you some comfort. I am 12w1d today and I am showing. It is very obvious that I am pregnant also. I am not carrying twins either. This is my first pregnancy. I have a small frame and very small abdomen area. So I figure that the baby needs room to grow and the only way to go is out for me, and my stomach has surely moved out. I am wearing maternity clothes, and strangers ask me when i'm due. When I tell them their eyes bog out of their head because I look to be about 20weeks! O well nothing I can do about it that's what my body wants to do!!!! Everyone is different. Congratulations on your pregnancy and God Bless!!!!

I to am 14/almost 15 weeks and am starting to show, I think other people think I am just getting fat the way it is showing, but people who know I am pg definetly say it is all baby. I have been in maturnity clothes for about two weeks I would say and they are SO much more comfortable! As of Friday I had gained one pound!!

M, I am showing and I am also 13 weeks pg with my first. I have been in maternity clothes for about 3 weeks and I need them. I think that I look about 5 months pregnant. I went out with a couple of friends that had babies last year and when I showed them my stomach they were like, WOW, that is so big for 13 weeks. I don't know why I am so big at this point, I do know that I was small before I got pg.... By the way, I'm not having twins either...

Thanks for your help guys. I haven't had an ultrasound yet, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I don't mind at all that I'm showing already. Now that my morning sickness has worn off, I'm really liking being pregnant, I was just a little concerned. =)

M...I am also "showing" and just started my 13th week. This is my first pregnancy. Only one in there according to ultrasound! Shirts still fit fine but I went out and bought my first maternity pants this weekend. I wish I would have done it sooner! So worth it! Does anyone ever notice that you can start out the day feeling not very pregnant, and by the end of the day you feel like a whale? It is like my body changes in only a few hours!

Im nearly 15 weeks and have a little belly, it seems to pop out and go back in some days i look pregnant others i dont lol this is my first and im looking around for maternity clothes but where i live there isnt much at all! So im juts going into bigger sort of tops and things but because the seasons are changing theres nothing to choose from. I think everyone is different and it depends on your body shape but enjoy it! There is a chance I'm having twins but because the Dr stuffed up and didn't send me to the OB until I was 11 weeks I have to wait for an ultrasound until they can fit me in :( anyway good luck to all of you!

Im 16 and a half weeks and I look as if I ate too much.:-)) My belly isnt round and looks very dodgy.Very funny

 

~S~ - March 11

I'm 15.5weeks. I'm starting to get a round belly, although it's not noticable that I'm pregnant to those who don't know, it looks more like I'm getting fat or something. I haven't put on much weight, only about 4-5lbs. But it's weird, because I'm noticably larger than I was pre-pregnancy, but yet I've only gained a little weight. Weird..

 

HEATHER - March 12

IM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU ALL, I AM 18 WEEKS PREGNANT AND HAVE GAINED 11 LBS SOFAR. I HAVE BEEN WEARING MATERINTY PANTS SINCE AROUND 12 WEEKS, AND SHIRTS I DONT FILL OUT BUT THEY DEFINITLY FEEL BETTER. I DEFINITLY LOOK PREGNANT, MY BELLY IS ROUND AND OUT THERE ALTHOUGH NOT HARD AS A ROCK YET. PEOPLE THINK I AM MUCH FARTHER THAN I ACTUALLY AM. I DONT WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE WOMEN THAT GAIN HUGE AMOUNTS OF WEIGHT THOUGH. AND IT SUPER BOTHERS ME WHEN PEOPLE AT MY WEEK ARE "NOT SHOWING" "ONLY GAINED A COUPLE OF POUNDS" THERE IS THIS WEB SITE IF YOU DO A SEARCH ON GOOGLE FOR "BELLY PHOTOS" LOOK FOR PREGNANCY.ABOUT.COM AND CHECK OUT OTHER REAL LIFE BELLY PIC'S. I THINK IT HELPED ME OUT ALOT.

Wow! I'm so glad I found this page. I am 14 weeks (first child and not twins) and I seem to be getting noticeably big. I've been doing the rubber band trick to my pants but they're getting way too tight now. My friends say that you can't really tell yet, but I think they're either crazy or lying. My hubby jokes about my size playfully. I'm so glad to find out that I am normal. Thanks so much Heather for your tip about the belly photos!! Now I can make the switch to maternity clothes with pride, knowing that I am not just weird. :)

me to i started showing at 6-8 weeks

 

Heather - March 18

early on its mostly just bloating since your uterus is still tucked in your pelvis til about 12 weeks.. it still looks pregnant but its not actually the baby just yet... I'm 15 weeks and just started to show where my uterus is.. when i wake up in the morning is the best way to see its always smallest in the morning or after you have a poo.

I am 18 weeks now and to anyone who didn't know me before, I look like I have a beer-belly...I was 5'6'' and weighed about 128 before, now I am 139 pounds and growing every day...one pound a week seems small as I didn't gain a pound in my first trimester...now I have gained 11 pounds in 6 weeks!!!...but now isn't the time to worry about weight gain anyhow, since my OB says all looks good!!
