Just wondering when will tummies start bulging out and become noticeable? 4 months? 5 months?
My first pregnancy , I only started to show at 6 mths n after that it will balloon! Hahaa nobody knows I'm preg till i was bout 6 mths. But this current pregnancy my tummy looks bloated already! 14 weeks now. Like overload with chocolate n ice cream..
Different people will be different.. For me,1st pregnancy showed tummy at 5mths,looks like I'm fat at tummy than pregnant..tummy was small,many said I looked like only 6mths pregnant when I was going to give birth the next day.. Now 2nd pregnancy,tummy started showing at 3mths already,now less than 2mths to EDD,my tummy is already bigger than my previous pregnancy.. I can't fit into some of my maternity/transition dresses already..
I'm 26 weeks and not showing at all.....
Wow! This is my first pregnancy. At 8 weeks, i feel that i'm losing my waistline already ... not that its showing to the external world but i dont't know why i'm growing sideways (without any weight gain at all!!)
AND I dont'T WANT TO ANNOUNCE SO SOON!!!!!! just started my new job 1 month ago.. cannot afford not to get confirmed and get dismissed because of my pregnancy
Mine isn't very obvious yet but I can't fit into my usual office pants already. Ppl guess from the way I dress now. Dresses and comfy pants etc.
I also have backaches but still attending the election rallies! Woohoo! Attending another one tonite!
the skinnier you r, the more it will show.
i joined aqua aerobics and we were comparing tummies (swimming costume, easier to compare. lol!). i was 6 mths and my tummy was as big as some1 who is 4 mths.. coz i'm fatter so i think fats can be compressed easily so it won't bulge so much. hehe!
i think if i step into the mrt then, no1 will give seat to me coz they can't tell is it i fat or pregnant.. that's y no1 give their seat to me until it's really obvious at around 7+ months. >.<
For my first pregnancy my tummy only show like 6 months onward? For my current (second pregnancy), my tummy is already very big from 2 months onwards... initially I still thought I am carrying twins =.="
My 1st pregnancy here. Little tummy started showing around 14 weeks. It seems to grow big overnight tho.
my first pregnancy too. am 13 weeks and my tummy is already showing.
this my first i onli started showing when i'm close to 6 months =X previous months was just bloated like just after having meals.. as long as bby doing well no worries about tummy size.. i also ask my gynae last friday y my tummy look small compared to others.. he told me "na dont worry so much different ppl have different size as long as bby healthy everything dont have to worry so much" but my husband always like to compare my stomach to other ppl.. he keep saying why others so big n sharp urs okok onli.. i tell him not good meh.. can slim down more easier.. will not have too much loose skin also lol.. just keep an open mind will do =)
my first too... tummy showing at week 13 now. before that was just bloated, and also i am "fat-based" to begin with ... ke ke ke
My first pregnancy only showed at 7 months. Everyone guessed I'm having a boy cos I didn't look pregnant from the back view even at 40 weeks! Still had a waist and skinny arms and legs. And even then my tummy was very small, during labour, the midwives were commenting on how tiny my tummy was for a full term 40 week baby - I looked like most ppl at 6-7 mths. Anyway my first kid is a girl, so the old wives' tales are wrong!
This time round, 2nd pregnancy its obvious now at 18 weeks. =)

Mine start to show wen I in my 4th month.. It just seems to grow overnight n balloon up very quickly.. By 7th month, I looks 9 months pregnant.. Really gigantic..
yah i think so too.... even though my tummy went back to its original flatness, i felt a bit upset that i'm showing so fast this time round cos then i'm stuck with feeling heavier for a longer time! =(
my tummy showed from 5mths
I guess it matters on how fast the baby is adopting to your body; there are pregnant women who are not aware that they are pregnant so would neglect on taking good care of their body; not eating the right food and taking the right vitamins are some of the factors that would greatly trigger baby's fast absorption thus if proper eating of foods and taking the right vitamins, there's a great chance of having a bigger tummy.
Mine is now showing very significantly at 17+weeks. Must wear maternity clothes .
