I'm actually 32 weeks now but I looked back at my 8 weeks pregnant and it was a weird almost bloated looking belly that I had and I remember thinking I was definitally showing! I popped pretty early but every woman and body type is different I still try to compare myself to others and how big I should or shouldn't be it won't change anything you will be however big you will be, I wouldn't worry if there is any concern your doctor can reasure you. Good luck and congrats!!! It seems like sooo long ago I was 8 weeks...:)

This is my 2nd child and I'm about 8 weeks too. I can't button or zip my jeans anymore and had to get a bella band to keep them up. I don't look pregnant really, unless I wear the right kind of shirt lol. I can tell my belly is bigger though! Although I've heard that you can get bigger faster with your 2nd child.

i am 12 weeks now, I definately have a belly (this is my second pregnancy, my daughter is 19 months). I think I just look like I've put on some weight, but I haven't, as I've actually lost 2 lbs since I found out I was pregnant (no appetite, nauseous all the time, yes still at 12 weeks) But I think I'm popping up higher, my jeans still all fit fine!So, everyone is different!

i an 33 weeks pregnant now but i was in maturity pants by 3 months i am still very large for my weeks i look nine months now everyone told me that they knew i was pregnant for a month before i actually found out (13 weeks ) and now they tell me i look like i am smuggling an over sized basketball or like its twins. i ran in to a girl at the mall she was 9 months and trying to "walk her baby out" and she asked me if i was doing the same( i was only 7 months)!

This is my first pregnancy and I started to get wider before I poked out in front. I am now 29 weeks and for sure showing!!! But my sister-in-law is on her second pregnancu and just over about a week behind me and she poked out right of way and did not get any wider....everyone is different.

When you mean showing do you mean to yourself and family or to a stranger? The first time around I wasn't showing to Strangers till I was 4 months. But I knew I was showing at about 3 months maybe?
I'm now 9 (almost 10) weeks pregnant and I have noticed a difference, but I still had a pregnant belly from my first so it doesn't look that different. I've also lost about 4 lb but my belly is shaped different (larger at the bottom, and smaller at the top). I'm also considered overweight, although looking at me, I don't really look like I am. The smaller you are, and the weaker your ab mussles are the faster you'll show (at least that's what I've read).
Congrats by the way! I always loved the showing part, it made me feel not as fat as you could tell there was a baby in there!

I totally know what you mean.... I feel really huge and then I go pee, lol, and then I just feel regularly huge... and I am just about 7 weeks... I knew at 5 weeks and the only person that knew was my doctor before I got a test at the office done he notice my pants were super tight around my abdomen ( had to have a physical examination around my uterus on the outside of my body because I have a tumor in my ovarie) I go in for a second ultrasound on November 30th and so the date may change to me being further along but they were thinking at the last one that I was 5 weeks... and that's what my calculations show as well... I'm not worried about showing yet, everyone else says they dont notice, but we spend every day with ourselves and know what is going on for the most part : )

I'm 8 weeks, too, and I feel like I'm really showing. People have told me that I don't look pregnant yet (other than the "glow" of course). But I can see that my belly is definately larger, and I'm already having to use the rubber band trick to keep my jeans up because it's too uncomfortable to button them! This is my first pregnancy, so I keep hearing that I shouldn't be showing yet, but I think that every woman is different, and as long as the baby's healthy there's no right or wrong here. So, if you are showing already, I say just enjoy it because we are all beautiful right now!!
