Well, because I have plenty of padding, it hasn't been very early. But, I showed a whole lot sooner when I was carrying twins! Wink

Generally I could tell a difference by three months, although it probably didn't show much to others until more like four months. But I had all singles --hmmmm...could you be having twins? Wink

I usually showed by about three months, too. If I remember correctly, my first baby showed later. After a balloon has been blown up once, its easier to be blown up again. Very Happy

With my first I started showing at 14 weeks. With my second at 10, with my 3rd at 8. With all my others I started showing within 5 weeks...not really showing but could no longer wear my regular undies.

Even though I'm quite heavy and have been for the past several babies, I am very short and have a very short waistline so everything Pooches out quickly!!

Ditto here. I'm 5'1" and about 50 lbs overweight. I was already gaining weight before I even found out I was pregnant, at less than 2 weeks along (gestation...I guess that would be 4 weeks pregnant)! Maybe water, maybe my body storing fat, who knows. But, I've started "thickening up" earlier and earlier with each successive pregnancy. Confused

I could tell for myself nearing 15 or so weeks.
However, a few people did not discover I was pregnant till about 7 months! Laughing Baggy hoodies on a tall-ish, thin frame can disguise quite a bit.

Because I am large on top and a little overweight (okay, more than a little Embarassed ), I was over 7 months pg before strangers could tell. OTOH, I tend to wear very loose dresses for modesty. If I dressed like a pop singer, with my pg belly hanging out, I think they might have noticed sooner! Laughing

With my first and second, others couldn't tell until I was in my sixth month. But I was showing probably by the 4th month. Baby 3, 4 and 5 others could tell by the end of the beginning of the second trimester. Baby 6 (a seven year gap), well as soon as I found out I made sure EVERYONE new ~ All my clothing was a comfortable snugger fit. Although I probably wasn't 'really' showing, I was showing off and proud of it! Looking good pregnant and 40!
