how soon did your belly pop? mamato1boy1girl Due May 23 (boy); 2 kids; Englewood, OH, United States 3295 posts

When I was around 12 weeks pregnant with both kids my uterus would be above my pubic bone when I'd wake up with a full bladder. After I'd pee it would go.back down. I didn't actually show with either until 20+ weeks. Did anyone else have this happen early in pregnancy? Did it happen earlier in 3rd+ pregnancies? Just curious :) thanks!

I usually don't 'pop' till after 20w, even with my 4th...I didn't get a real bump till about 24w.199981_10150099397452452_5361342_n.jpg

I guess it depends on what you mean by 'pop'. I got my very first little rounding with my first at 28 wks, second at 26, third at 20, and fourth at 14. But with all of them it wasn't until somewhere between 26-30 weeks that I actually got that belly that makes people wonder if you're pregnant.

Around 27/28 weeks when others could notice. I'm also bigger.

With my 1st 2 boys, I showed at 12 weeks but it was fat, not baby, being my thyroid was off and I gained 20 lbs at that point. With this one, I'm 15 weeks (tomorrow) along and have gained 5-6 lbs and you can tell I'm pregnant but I believe it's more my uterus than anything else. Either way, my normal jeans don't button, although they still fit. I have both one pair of maternity jeans and 2 pregnancy bands that hold my pants up. This is my 3rd baby.

I popped at 12-14 weeks with my first. this time around I had a belly at 7 weeks (bloa?t) however my uterus rose above my pubic bone around 8/9 weeks and now at 12 and a half weeks I have a good belly going! I cant believe how fast im showing this time around.

everyone is different. I looked back through both of my pregnancies and my belly popped by 6 months. but I was clearly showing by 5 months... I am 4"11 small torso not sure if that has much to do with it but my belly button has poked out since 4 months :/
