I know we're pretty early but I have been reading about mamas in the DDC showing already. I'm on my 3rd baby and while I don't expect to be showing yet, I am wanting some confirmation that there are others out there not showing yet either.

I have been up peeing every night around 2AM and this morning I just wanted to stay in bed. By the time I did get up, I noticed my uterus pretty prominently.

It was a good feeling.

I am not showing at all. Due to drastically changing my diet I have lost almost 10 lbs this pregnancy my clothes are actually fitting looser! This is baby EIGHT for me. My last pregnancy I didn't even realize I was pg until about my 4th or 5th month. (to be fair I was nursing and never got AF so it wasn't because I was in la la land)

I don't think I am showing, but I have a tiny bump...NONE of my clothes are fitting right now except one pair of low rise capris & some overall shorts. By the time I go back to school, I know I will be in maternity clothes. I have gained one half pound to 1 pound (depending on the time of my weighing).
This is my third pregnancy also, but second child.

This is my second, and I'm not really showing. I feel like my body has changed shape, though. Can't wait till I do!! I love having a belly. I think that is what makes the first trimester hard. I get all the yucky stuff like fatigue and m/s but none of the fun stuff.

Not showing here either! I still have a belly from my last 3 births though but I don't think it is that. I just started feeling today like I can't lay flat on my belly. I have only been eating to stay alive though! I have had some serious food aversions!

I put on 7lbs because I've been eating like a horse and my pants are all tight, but that really, really doesn't qualify as showing. Last time I checked my uterus isn't in my booty.

Not showing yet. Second pregnancy here, but I got pregnant two weeks pp, so my body never really stopped being pregnant. I'm looking forward to it though. I loved being pregnant last time, and was just starting to look pregnant when I had DD at 30wks. Hopefully I get to be *really* big this time!

Hahahahhah!! Too funny!

I'm not really showing either, other than I can't suck in my pooch anymore, which I could in the past. But nobody can seem to tell. This is my first. I'm at 10w6days.

When do people with average stomach firmnes USUALLY start to show ie ABOVE the belly button, starting to protrude?

Your fundus (top of your uterus) usually reaches your belly button around 20 weeks. That is also when the measurement from your pubic bone to your fundus in cm should start corresponding to how many weeks you are. You might start to feel movement before then and maybe even show a little. Around 20 weeks is my favorite part of pregnancy.

20 wks is my fav too.

I'm already fat so not really "showing" yet, LOL. I have also lost some weight and am still in my regular clothes. Maternity shirts are more comfy than my regular shirts but my pants and shorts all fit fine.

Not showing here either and my clothes still fit fine, I just prefer the ones that don't sit tight on my belly. This is my second and I honestly thought I'd be showing sooner. I think I was around 16 weeks when I really started showing with dd, but she was a big baby from the get go and I always measured big with her.

Not showing either but I am only 9 weeks, In the morning I have a little bump b/c my bladder is so full there is no room for my uterus in there. I can't wait for 20 weeks either, I am always feeling my uterus to see if it is bigger, somedays it is firmer than others.

For the most part though I'm still in my regular cloths.

This is my first pregnancy and I'm not showing at all yet (9w5d). I have a bit of "bump", but that is from the pizza, not the baby! Below my stomach is still flat, flat, flat.

Can't wait for that baby bump too!

This is my first pregnancy. I started showing at about 5 weeks. I am at my proper body weight, so it was not hard to tell a difference when my lower stomach started to bulge.....

I just look fatter than usual (even though I lost 30 pounds after my last pregancy, and am almost back to my pre pg weight of DD#1). However, with this being my 4th, I suppose I don't have much left to hold everything in very tightly. Give me a few more weeks. I usually stop looking fat, and start looking pg around 16 weeks.

I am in my 7th week of pregnancy and this is my first pregnancy. I had tight abs pre-pregnancy and now my belly is starting to pooch out enough that I can't suck it in. You definitely can't tell that I'm pregnant, but I feel pregnant and my jeans are getting a bit snug around the abdominal area.

I can't WAIT to start showing!! We waited so long to finally become pregnant!! I'm hoping since I'm so small (5'5'' 110lbs) and have such a small torso (I'm all legs) I might start showing pretty early on

I'm not showing yet, but I can feel a little grapefruit size bump really low if I lay flat on my back. My regular clothes are still fitting fine, though at times I do have some bloating that makes them fit more snug than usual. I'm almost 12 wks.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!
