I didn't start showing until the 17/18wk mark alhtough I steadily put on weight from around 12/13wks. I think it depends on your frame etc.

I really started to show at about 14 weeks, before that I just looked bloated and more plump! I was about 16 weeks when a stranger noticed and asked when I was due.

I have been bloated from about 7/8 weeks but i look like i have put on weight. In last week or so i can see my uterus over my pubic bone but its not noticeable through clothes. Very high up under boobs i am bigger but its not the baby its just bloating.

A while to go so! I'm starting to look and feel a little bloated on my tum already. Looking forward to actually having a bump instead of looking like i've just put on a few pounds in that area :o0 To be fair my dieting has gone out the window in the last few weeks so I prob have put on a few pounds, think I need to lay off the munchies or i'll be in trouble!

I started showing about 19 weeks as I was 18 weeks when I got married and there were loads of people who got a surprise when I told them! I was on honeymoon before I started to "let down" as its called. Think it was because I was relaxing but everyone is different. I thought I just looked like I had put on some weight. My bump kinda got rounder about week 22 though and had to reshuffle all the clothes in my wardrobe.

i am nearly 8weeks and the way i am only able to eat cheese sandwiches at the moment is bound to make me have a bigger bump in no time. I just cant face anything else except jam sandwiches as well. even cheese and jam is nice!!
