Depends on pregnancy number and your body type. usually with a first pregnancy and slim body you don't really show until 20 weeks+, heavier the build the later you show - that's with a singleton. With a twin pregnancy, it's definitely earlier however still depends on body type. I say with a slim build maybe around 16 weeks? maybe... There's a belies sticky thread, you should check it out. That question might be answer in the Frequent Questions sticky too :)

My twin pregnancy was my first pregnancy. I'm 5'4" and was 135 when I got pregnant. I was in maternity clothes by 8 weeks. By 12 weeks, strangers could tell I was pregnant. I'm sure some of my belly pics are in the belly pics sticky.

Ya, there are phases - 1st you notice your pants are tight and you START wearing maternity, then usually there's an awkward phase where ppl can't decide if you're pregnant or plump ;) and then finally you hit that phase where ppl are pretty sure you're preggo :D

With my DS1 I was in maternity by about 18 weeks and ppl didn't really notice I was preggo until about 28-32 weeks. With the twins I was in maternity pants by 9 weeks but people weren't really noticing until I was about 18 weeks

My twin pregnancy is my second pregnancy. I had crazy baby bloat from day 1 and then by 8 weeks I couldn't wear my regular jeans. Now I have a lot of strangers asking me when I'm due and I can't fit into any pre pregnancy shirts at all, even my baggy ones.

This is my first pregnancy and I'm pretty tall (5' 9") and I still started to show pretty early. I was in maternity clothes exclusively by 12 weeks and strangers started commenting by 14/15 weeks. However, at 20 weeks I got a lot of comments that I looked small, and that was even before we knew I was carrying twins. Maybe their perspective was off?

I was lucky enough to skip the "Is she fat or pregnant" stage. I went from being fairly thin to obviously pregnant within 8 weeks.

Toward the end though when people would find out how far along I was I'd get this look, and then people would tell me I'd end up on bedrest. I guess that was their "polite" way of telling me how big I was. Thanks...

I cut back to part time at 28 weeks and stopped working by 32 weeks. I delivered my girls at 33 weeks. Those 4 weeks I was working PT things kept getting harder and harder and in hindsight I probably should have stopped by 28 weeks.

I worked until the day I went into labor at 34+3. I had to, otherwise I would have stopped at about 30-32 weeks.

Friday is my last day at work and I'll be 33 weeks. I am also a teacher and was off for most of the summer, which is why I was willing to work a few weeks at the start of the school year. However, I would recommend stopping work around 30-32 weeks. Earlier is better if you can work it out.
