Visible baby bump?

Postby butttonbaby » Wed Jul 21, 2010 6:15 pm

I'm only about 4.3 weeks along with our first and I'm uber excited to have a baby bump. So I thought it would be fun to poll you ladies to see when/if you started showing... so I can obsess over the cute little belly to come! :)

I said 9-10 weeks, because this week, I started having tighter clothing and my lower abdoman is getting hard to the touch. Definately firm and not just "bloat" anymore.

Of course, although I have no live children, I did carry one to 19w2d, so I think that makes a difference. A lot of time women who have had previous pregnancies start to show a little earlier.

I can still hide it, but if I wear a shirt that is tucked in with shorts or pants, you can tell.

With my first, I didn't really show where it was noticable until about 16-17 weeks. With my second, it was more like 10-11 weeks. This time it was a lot earlier, but it was mostly bloat. Now the bloat is gone and I can feel the bump (12 weeks).

I thought I was "showing" around 20 weeks with my son. I looked back at those pics, though, and I think I started out bigger this time, so not sure I was showing at all then. :P I didn't get "when are you due?" comments until about 28 weeks, but I think how early you show all depends on body shape (I'm thin, but I have a very long torso) and how many pregnancies you've had. :)

I voted 15 weeks + (for the pregnancy with my son). I noticed a bump before that but it wasn't noticeable to others. I think I got my first comment about looking pregnant at like 17 weeks or so.

This time around I swear I have a bump already but I still have leftover fluff from my son so who knows. It's hard to tell.

With my first I was in maternity around 6 weeks (yes seriously!) But I was also measuring so big by 12 weeks that she sent me for an US to rule out twins even though I had already had an US at 6 weeks that showed only 1 baby. I always get big super fast and am showing by 10 weeks.

I had massive bloat in my tummy area starting around 7-8 which was very noticeable to my dh and my dad (who I hadn't even told yet). The bloat is just in my waistline and strangely enough I've only gained about 2 pounds.

Thank you ladies for your stories! I guess I was hoping it would be sooner, but it looks like the majority show somewhere near middle of the second trimester or so.... feels like a long way off for me, but I'm prayin we get there! :)

Oh and Liz and Caltron, that's awesome you showed so soon! Maybe if I'm lucky I will too!
