I can't sleep!
I am stressing a bit cause I'm 15 weeks today and I am still not showing! I showed earlier with my previous pregnancies. I'm usually a size 10 and I've put on around 4 or 5kg but I just look chubby!
I have my first appt at the hospital this week so I guess I'll find out then.
When I lay on my back I can feel a hard area, but it's still so small.
When did you guys start showing?

I'm 19 weeks tomorrow, and while I've put on about the same amount of weight, I don't know if I'd call what I've got as "showing. I just look a bit fat around the middle. My waist has disappeared (which freaks me out) and I have a bulge, but it just looks like a fat-bulge, not a baby-bump.
So I'll keep you posted when I can actually answer the question!

I have a chubby belly and have done for the last 4 weeks or so I think? Don't look pregnant though, just fatter original.gif But I have some muscle separation still from last pregnancy so no wonder I looked rounder so early.

Looking forward to actually getting a pregnant looking belly!

I started "showing" at apprpx 13 weeks but I think it was more of a food baby bump. I am really showing now (17 weeks). I popped at 15-16 weeks. I am thinish but I have weak stomache muscles from a back injury and I heard if you have good abs, you will stay flat for longer.

I'm 16 weeks, people were making comments that I was already showing at around 14 weeks.  I have gained about 7 kilos.  This is my first.  I think it's mostly food baby though as when I last visited my doctor she said she still couldn't feel the womb yet.  I was less than 50 kilos before getting pregnant so this weight gain has made a huge difference.

About 14wks I had a noticeable bump - however I was a very petite and fit size 0 so I really looked different to those I knew

I started ''showing' at about 10wks but I think that's because this is #3 for us. However it's only in the last week that people are comfortable asking about my pregnancy, so I must be just over the looking fat stage, I am now 19 weeks.

I am 16 weeks and this is my first, and I think that sometimes it looks as if I am "showing" and sometimes I just look chubby!! My Mother-in-law has actually said she is surprised at how pregnant I look considering this is my first and it is quite early in! When I feel my stomach it feels firm and not like a food baby, so it is definitely my uterus and not too many carbs!! Everyone I have spoken to is so different and it depends on so many different factors such as stomach muscles as Mousky said, so I wouldn't stress until you see what the hospital says =)

My body started changing shape at week 6 which freaked me out completely as I wasn't expecting to not fitting into clothes so quickly.
I think I popped last week so 16 weeks, by popped i mean i can see a round lump right in front rather than from 6 weeks i just looked chubby.
Starting to struggle bending / crouching too and can now feel it in those situations .
This is my first and I was a size 10 before
