18 weeks or so was when my abdominal muscles finally let loose.

But I only really started to look pregnant at about 20 weeks, and that was when my non-maternity pants started to get too tight to wear. Even now, with some clothes, you can't tell.

Well I'm 15-1/2 weeks pregnant and I'm definitely not showing. I really don't think I'm any bigger than I was at 12 weeks. I can still button my pants, but I don't wear them buttoned, as I wear a bella band b/c they are very tight around the waist if I button them.

I'm starting to get a little worried here. I have an ultrasound tomorrow, so that will hopefully help my worries. I didn't answer your question b/c I haven't started showing yet.

I really didn't get an actual bump until around 16 weeks or so. I could tell when I was naked that I had a bump, but it was definitely 16wk before other people noticed and even then it wasn't really a big bump. In the past few days I've really started to look much more pregnant. I compared my 18wk to 20wk pic and I could tell a difference.

Here is 18 weeks

Here is 20 weeks

I even think I look bigger today :oops: but who knows. It could all be in my head :lol:

ETA: I think I'm gonna go take another pic and see :wink:

I have now started to round out more in the middle, so I am definitely looking more pregnant. Others have noticed it now too. I guess each person is different. Most women who have tight stomach muscles will show later than those with looser muscles. That's just my observation though.

I started showing a bit at 8-9 weeks. I am short and very short waisted and was told that was why I was showing a bit earlier.
