    Default When did you start showing?

    I'm really impatient and can't wait for my belly to pop out. I might be weird but I can't wait for my belly to be big enough that strangers can tell I'm pregnant

    So I was just wondering, when did you start to show? Particularly with your first bub, cos I've heard it takes a bit longer first time around to show.

    I've taken photos almost every week from 4 weeks and I'm now 12, and can't really tell the difference lol

    Default When did you start showing?

    With my first I didn't start showing at all till about 5 ish months (25-27 weeks) and that was hardly then by 30 weeks I just popped big time.

    With my second I probably stated showing about 14-16 weeks but became more noticeable after 20weeks. Still carried smaller then my first in the belly at term but with a bigger baby.

    Now with my third I am almost 17 weeks and only just starting to show a sign of pregnancy.

    I have always had good tummy muscles though so I think that's delayed the bump as such.

    I showed really early.
    I had a small pregnant looking belly at 12 weeks and by about 15-16 everyone that knew me knew and strangers started commenting. Am 27 weeks now and look very pregnant!!
    I do think for a first I got very big very early and constantly get told I'm big for my gestation

    DS: 24+ weeks
    DD: 22+ weeks

    By the end with both I looked like I had a basketball in my T-shirt, so I was late to show but grew heaps once I did.
