I started really showing around 16 weeks, but everyone is different honey. My friend who is very slender started getting a bump at 8 weeks. It really depends, trust me you will start showing soon :D

It's completely normal, I didn't find out I was pregnant untill I was 16weeks and didn't show at ll untill I was 22 weeks. I had a very healthy baby boy!
But then I also had a friend who was showing at 10 weeks,
it really just depends on you and your body.

At 13 weeks I started to show and I'm now at 15 weeks and people think I'm 6 months a long. This is my first child even. My step mother just had her 5th child and barely showed until she was 8 months along. Everyone is different. Just because you're not large doesn't mean that something is wrong. I feel like something is wrong for showing as much as I do.

Meh. Sounds like you've got some crappy, immature friends if they can't respect your word as truth or your feelings.

If this your first, you won't show for a while. With my first, I wore a size two until I was five months, at which time I went to a size four. I didn't hit maternity clothes til later in my sixth month and I had a very healthy 7lb, 7oz baby boy at term.

Don't worry. :) By your second or third you'll pop out WAY before you want to. I'm on my third child and I popped out at 6 weeks and am already in maternity wear at 13. The longer you wait to pop out, the fewer clothes you have to buy so the less money you waste. It's really a good thing, even if your friends are making you feel like a liar.

With my first pregnancy with twins I didn't really start showing until about 5 or 6 months, and with my current pregnancy, I just started to really show and I'm 25 weeks today.

I only started showing around 17 weeks so I guess it is normal, if your doctor says you are fine then you are

Aww honey, you are fine! I did not start showing til I was 6 months. Im almost 8 now and every now and then an idiot will comment on how tiny I am. I tell them thank you, its better than the alternative. They have no clue the actual science behind pregnancy or that A big belly has little to do with baby and more to do with mommas abdominal muscles, diet, body type and genetics. So don't let what they say get to you, remember your OB and other mommas because of their ob, lol are the only ones who know what they are talking about.

When I was pregnant with my daughter 10 years ago I didn't really show much till I was around 6 months. And looked like I was 3 months when I was 6 months. I am now 15 weeks tomorrow (April 6th) and I look like I am 6/7 months pregnant.

Me too! My doctor said that everything is okay.. but a few people have told me that it's a sign for a girl... My husband and parents do the same thing... but I think that I am feeling the baby every once in a while, but I have faith everything is okay. Everyone is different and so is every pregnancy. Wish you the best of luck.

Itll happen I wasnt very big at 15 weeks either. U dont wanna rush that baby bump grl.

[deleted account]

everyone is different i am naturally small and didnt actually "look pregnant" until i went from 21 weeks to 22 weeks and i have the pics as evidence that's the only way i could tell and i still get comments about how far i am and no one believes me, but the doc says everything is fine and she is where she should be, there is no normal size about how big someone should look and i think outsiders forget that, and it is embarassing or annoying to constantly hear it, all i would say to them is the doc says i'm where i should be and everything is fine and if they dont drop it than that's there problem, hope this helps Good Luck and Congrats!

I was about 17 weeks when I started to show. I literally woke up one day, looked down, and said, "that wasn't there yesterday" (in regards to my sudden baby belly). And some women don't show until a lot later... it doesn't mean that anything's wrong or unusual. It's just how your body holds the pregnancy.

i didnt start showing until i was about 20 weeks and i am having twins! i think it just depends on where the baby is sitting. dont stress because before you know it you will pop out!!! i have been taking side on pictures every week and this helps to show you how much you change, because you might not notice but when you go picture to picture you can see the difference. maybe try that :-)
