If this is your first pregnancy you probably won't show for a while. I didn't show with my first until about 5 months. I am now 10 weeks with my second and my belly is just starting to pop.

If it's your first child you can got up to 16 weeks and barely be showing but due to everything already been stretched you will generally start showing earlier with 2nd child onwards. With my first I stopped working at 30 weeks and only went two clothes sizes up and didn't need pregnancy clothes and my baby weighed 8lbs so it was all baby. But this is my 3rd and I'm 7 weeks and 1 day and my clothes are starting to feel a bit tight. So every one is different. Best wishes

I'm 9 wks with first pregnancy and I just look sort of bloated. All my jeans still fit too and the only reason I probably gained a few lbs was because I was too sick to get to the gym. I'm 5'3 118 lbs....I hope I don't show till I'm 5 months!!!

I am 17 weeks. I have a 3 yar old who I showed with when I was about 19 weeks. But at 17 weeks I am not showing at all.

i doubt you will be showing yet, maybe i have yours.. i am 11 wks and looks like i am 6 mths.. very hard to keep it a secret that's for sure.. But I am sure everything is fine...

Hi Casey....dont worry, as everyone else said it takes longer with first baby to start showing. Another thing is how your body is built. Skinny ones will start showing sooner, curvier ones later. So relax and enjoy your pregnancy.

i didn't show with my first pregnancy until 23weeks. I felt movement, had an ultrasound, my husband could even feel movement while my tummy was still relatively flat. I am only 5'4 and 112lbs before my first baby, and i figured i would show really early, but the baby grew mostly inside, and it took my tummy muscles a while to finally let go. It depends on you, the way your uterus expands, the baby ect..

Every woman is different. I have even gone to websites that show pictures of women at various stages and some look more pregnant at 8 weeks than others do at 28 weeks. I am 11 weeks and I am starting to develop a little belly but this may also be bloating. At 7-8 weeks, I was still fitting into most clothes. At this point, less and less is starting to fit. As of my appt. today, I have gained 3 pounds. I am 5' tall and of average weight.
