I just found out I'm 9 weeks pregnant, how soon will I start showing?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Congratulations! It really depends on the woman and the number of pregnancies she's had. Most women tend to show a little later during their first pregnancies (after 12 weeks or so, and even up to 24 weeks for some women), and a little sooner during their second and so forth. Good luck!

Well, my first, I didn't show until atleast 4-5 months and then my second week I swear I showed as soon as I knew I was pregnant! ahhhhh

I didn't show before almost 6 months and I was quite thin. It was my first and I could definitely see my pants being tighter but no one ever noticed my bump until 21 or 22 weeks.. but then OMG I got really big really fast. It depends on so many factors...

How early you begin to look pregnant is a very individual thing. Personally, my jeans became tight at 6-7 weeks and I was in maternity clothes at 10 weeks, which is very early. Big baby bumps (and big babies!) run in my family though so it was no surprise to me that I got a belly so soon. My daughter ended up being 9lb 6oz and my fundal height was 49cm 3 days before she was born - I was ENORMOUS. I think it can also depend on your size pre-pregnancy. I was slim and my stomach was flat so I showed much sooner than my friend who already had a tummy. Don't stress out about when you start to look pregnant... Even though having a LITTLE belly is cute and exciting, if you're anything like me by the end of the pregnancy you'll be massive and uncomfortable and OVER IT lol. Congrats and good luck.

Every woman is different. I was 4 weeks away from delivering and people were just starting to notice i was prego! They were shocked when i told them yeah i was pregnant. My first pregnancy i gained 12 pounds and my second pregnancy i gained 7 1/2 pounds. Both my kids weighed 7lbs 5oz at birth. I'm not huge, but i'm not a twigg either. I think it depends on your body type and some woman just dont gain much weight at all i think i could notice myself when i was 14 weeks on about both of my kids.

I was about 5-6 months too when other people started to notice. I gained A LOT the last couple/few months. 32lbs overall but then again I only started at 105lbs so he needed some room to grow.

I didnt start showing until I was about 5.5 months along....much to my chagrin :) But it seems that most people start showing around 20 weeks or so...

It's different for everyone. Your uterus wont grow past your pelvic bone until after 12 weeks, any time after that you can start showing. You may, however, get enough bloating and swelling in all the right places as early as 8 weeks. ; )

well i was pretty little (110 lbs and 5.1 ft) when i got pregnate and by 8 wks i was showing some, but mostly my jeans were to tight. i did the trick of using a rubberband around the button instead of buttoning them. just until i was big enough to wear maternity clothes.

Soemtimes it depends on your body size or the you eat, but you never show till you about 4 months I didnt show till I was 4 months so it really depends

It depends I only started to show around 6 months. But I only gained 8 pounds and my baby was 8 pounds and I still fitted in all my clothes. I think everyone is different.

Congratulations with the pregnancy!

Depends on your body size and how big baby is.



My jeans got tight at around 6wks with each of my boys. For the most part, most women start showing around 20wks or so; I had a 'baby bump' at 9 or 10wks, if not a little sooner, but understand, I gave birth to 2 boys who were 9lbs each and 8yrs apart.



Good luck and congrats.
