For first time moms mostly Monica Dickerson Due September 11; Adelanto, California 29 posts15th Feb '13
Hi ladies, I was curious when you first time moms started "showing". This is my first, I am 5'11" 190lbs and only 7 weeks and can swear I'm showing already! I do understand that this isn't baby yet and probably just bloating and stuff. But I just wanted to hear from first time moms your experience and how your pregnancy went (or is going =) ) thanks!

I'm 5'1, and my pre pregnancy weight was 118. I didn't start showing until around 20ish weeks. I guess around 17ish, people who knew me could kind of tell, but it took me a while to show... and people still say I'm SUPER small... I'm 140lbs now, and tomorrow I'll be 30 weeks. v.v

Quoting Monica Dickerson:" Hi ladies, I was curious when you first time moms started "showing". This is my first, I am 5'11" 190lbs ... [snip!] ... and stuff. But I just wanted to hear from first time moms your experience and how your pregnancy went (or is going =) ) thanks!"yes it's probably just bloating(: i didn't start showing till i was like literally almost 20 weeks. and i was 199 pounds pp. it seemed to take me forever! lol. but torwards the end i started looking like a whale hahaha. but my whole experience was very good(: i had no complications till torwards the end i developed a mild case of preeclampsia, and had to be induced. i pushed for like 3 hours till they finally had to come suction my baby out. i hope your pregnancy is going well and continues to go well! goodluck and congrats(:

I'm tall with a huge bone structure and super long torso and I just started showing a few weeks ago and I'm 33 weeks...I've mainly been growing wide instead of out until now...now it feels like I'm getting bigger by the day but I'm glad to finally look pregnant...

Probably bloat. I did not start showing until around 5 and a half- 6 months.

Your fundal height is coming out of your pelvic bone about 12-13 weeks, I started pudging out more at 15-16 weeks and I'm now 21 weeks and actually look like I have a belly. I'm 5'5", was 175lbs before due to some medical issues that prevented me from getting the exercise I needed and I've lost over 20 lbs since I got pregnant.
