Yeah - at first it didn't seem like I would. BBs started off smaller and everything...but now...I definitely look 5 months pregnant and I'm only 14 wks.

Yup, With #1 and #2 I didn't show until around 18-19 weeks, with #3 it was more like 7.

I am pg with #3 and 11 weeks along. I started showing like 5 days after conception pretty much. I had implantation spotting and then couldn't button my pants anymore! Of course by now I am much bigger and could probably pass for 4 or 5 months as well. I don't remember being so big so early with the other pgs.

In my last pregnancy I was showing around 10 weeks.

I was in maternity pants at 6 weeks. I had supermarket checkers etc asking when I was due by 8 weeks, even if I wasn't in maternity wear. Yeah.

Now, at 24 weeks, I am starting to get "really?" looks from people when I say I am due in January. Clearly people are ready for me to say "tomorrow" or at least "next month".

I have felt bigger all along too, though my fundus is measuring right on. I think my abs just completely gave up any resistance this time around.

Yup, I took the test at 4 1/2 weeks and didn't think I looked pregnant at that point. But, I woke up at exactly 6 weeks and could no longer wear any non-maternity pants. Not only was I bigger, but I LOOKED pregnant. It was strange. But I had people begin asking me almost immediately when I was due so I know it wasn't just me imagining that it happened.

I've been wearing maternity pants for a couple weeks now, but more for comfort than anything else. I cannot stand to feel my snug low-rise jeans on my lower abdomen. I might be showing a tiny bit right now (8wks) but I don't think anybody would guess that its pregnancy related. Sooooo...I guess my answer is, not yet! I wouldn't be surprised to have a baby bump in a couple weeks. With #1 and #2 I was showing at 12 weeks.

This will be my 3rd and I was obviously showing by 8 weeks and in maternity pants at 9 weeks. I'm now 17 weeks and feel like I haven't grown much since then luckily. Things are growing more steadily now I guess.

i'm so glad i'm not the only one.

this will be my third baby (but i've also had 2 miscarriages in the past 6 months). i'm not even 7 weeks and look clearly pregnant. i've had people ask me when i'm due too. crazy. i think with me it's a combination of bloat and the abs just totally giving out.

I'm around 9-10 weeks with my 3rd and get very bloated by the end of the day. I look like I've gained a lot of weight in my stomach area but probably don't look pg yet. I'm wearing maternity pants today because I only have 2 other pairs of pants that fit me (other than sweats) and they are in the wash.

Immediately after conception, or so it felt! Definitely was showing by 6 weeks, had to buy new clothes and everything. Even now at 32 weeks I look like I'm ready to deliver any day now. People freak when I say I've got 6-8 more weeks to go

This is so maddening to me!!

I'm six weeks today with my 4th pregnancy. I had a late first trimester m/c in July of this year. My girls (age 5 & 7) were devestated. I'd like to conceal this pregnancy for a little while, but OMG! How is that going to be possible?!

My non-maternity pants don't fit--not even my postpartum pants. Most of my tops are too short.

My baby is the size of a lentil, and my pants won't button.

I just POAS for the 2nd time (did it 1 week ago, on a Thursday morning but 3am Wednesday, this time )

Am feeling bloated, and some wakefulness at night, tonight being the worst. Woke up with a tummy ache, now hungry and eating a sandwich. I'm OK with wearing maternity wear, just don't want to announce yet. Just almost 6 weeks. I've always had a tummy, and am looking forward to sticking it out, being pregnant and not fat

Wondering how soon I'll show, not really showing yet, just my clothes are a bit tighter, pants / skirts and bra is feeling like it filled out a bit.
