Okay well this will be my first baby and I am 13.4 weeks. I have read on other sites where other first time moms are already showing? I have a slight pooch and my doc said 1st pregnancy bellies do not POP out till about 20 weeks. I am just wondering am I behind on the belly or is it normal to only have pooch for now? When did yours come? Thanks a bunch
I am also a first timer and mine didn't begin to protrude until about 20 weeks. I am currently 27 weeks now and my belly really didn't become apparent until about week 23. Most people would look at me in public and not be able to tell for sure if I was pregnant or if I was just pudgy.
I think it depends on how big you are to start. I had a pooch from about 10 weeks on, and then it started popping out at little more at like 16-18 weeks. I'm pretty small though. Now at 34 weeks, it actually looks like a basketball under my shirt LOL.
I was not overweight before I got pregnant, but I did not pop out until about 20 weeks. It was irritating because I wanted people to know I was pregnant! I mean I POPPED too! All of a sudden I had the big belly and it was like WHOA! SLOW DOWN!
First pregnancy I didn't pop until 20 weeks but this time it was not a whole lot different. It really depends on your body type. My friend popped at 14 weeks with her first pregnancy. Good luck with everything.
I started showing with my first at about 22 weeks as well, now with this baby I am 12 weeks and I have a little pouch already but I am tall and really thin so I don't it that has alot to do with it or you body remembers the second time around.
I can't remember if you are permitted to put web sites on here, but there is a really good one called "pregnancy.about" that shows real bellies from 5 weeks on, and you can also submit your belly photo too.
