Wink When do you show??

Hi ,

I was wondering when everyone started showing. I am 12 weeks and am starting to show a little bit. In a couple of weeks I am afraid normal clothes will be a thing of the past. Anyways just wondering. With my 1st baby I think I was wearing regular clothes until 4 months.

People never really said anything about me being pregnant till about 24 weeks. I noticed that I had to wear maternity or stretchy pants at about 14 weeks.


EDD with baby #1 for hubby and I September 21st, 2003! It's A BOY!

I'm only 8 weeks with my 4th pregnancy (I have 2 boys and I had a miscarriage last year) and I already look pregnant. I've heard with your 2nd, 3rd, etc pregnancies that you show earlier because your uterine muscles are already stretched out.

I am now 17 weeks and I have not been in normal clothes for about 4 weeks now. I have a pretty defined preggo belly already, but this is number 2 so I guess that is why. I went to maternity clothes as soon as I was uncomfortable because what is the point. No use in being uncomfortable and bigger clothes are inevitable.

I didn't show until about 26 weeks either (with my first child). The doctor said it was because i had extremely strong ab muscles and i went wide instead of out.

Aren't i glad for those muscles though, i had my baby girl out in only 5 minutes of pushing during my labour. So if you can, keep your stomach toned throughout the pregnancy... It helps!!!
