Yes, I have a noticeable bump already. Makes it hard to hide!

i took almost 2 weeks off work and when i came back everyone was like wow amanda youve gained weight. (some of my crew didnt know yet) so i let everyone know. all was happy except one of my crew. to no suprise it was my hr nightmare for those keeping up with my posts. how can people be so negative about such a wonderful thing? this girl told me i dont deserve to have a kid....had to walk away but brushing it off. would love to see belly pics!!!

Most definitely noticeable! There's no hiding it.

Um yeah! Totally noticeable! The extra weight that I carry on my belly, doesn't help hide anything either... makes it more noticeable!

Not noticable even if I wear something tight. I kinda just look like I have a muffin top Smile

I guess I am showing. I went to get a pedicure last night and the guy behind the desk said, "when are you due?" that was a surprise- no one has noticed before him. My husband agrees I'm showing a bit, too.

Cute baby bump! I have NOTHING yet! Sad I've lost some weight due to the stress of all the spotting, etc. that went on a few weeks ago, plus the nonstop m/s. Boo. I want a bump!

That being said, I can feel my uterus above my pelvic bone, it just hasn't popped yet!

I would LOVE to say I'm showing, but I think it's just leftover from last time I was pregnant... 5 years ago. My pants are getting pretty snug though...

I dont think I look pregnant yet, just like Ive gained a little weight. It will be tight not saying anything until after next week....because my belly is usually flat...so I know my neighbors are noticing the weight...Im sure i have them all guessing at this point Smile I usually dont show until a little later, but what should I expect, it is my 10th child (9th living) Smile

I usually don't show until I'm closer to 20 weeks, but this time I've popped out a little bit. It depends on what I wear, but for the most part, I still don't look like I'm pregnant. For the people who see me often, they can tell because I don't usually carry any weight in my belly, but if you didn't know me, it's not obvious at all.

Can I just say that I love you for posting this? Smile I worry with each kid that this will be the end to my flat tummy.....maybe #5 won't do me in. Yahoo! xoxo

I'm just over 8 weeks, and I am totally showing already, to the point where I am nervous I am actually 12 weeks :eek: because my LMP was kinda wacky and I got a very faint BFP the day before AF showed up outside the 10 min zone, but it could have been evap and it was an FRER so it could also have been a false pos, apparently. I have a midwife appt tomorrow and I will see what they think. I know people show earlier with subsequent babies, but this seems kinda ridiculous. Either I have been eating for 2 when one of us is the size of a pea, or it's twins, or I am further along than I think. Yipes.

Oh good...I am not the only one...

I am showing...and have been showing for awhile. My body remembers being preggy and popped out to show the world! I always tend to show early and then stay small all the way up to the end. Bigger butt, smaller baby!

I think I am showing but people aren't noticing (or perhaps too polite to say so, or maybe I dress well to hide it). I think I have a big bump, especially at the end of the day, but I am slim with a flat stomach (I get fat arms, my stomach is always flat!) so it seems so obvious to me. Only one more week to hide it!

Nothing yet! However, due to the fact that I am normally skinny, then combined with this being my third pregnancy.. I should start showing soon! It's usually hard for me to hide much of anything..

Within the last 3 days I think I popped a lot. DH and I notice. Strangers may or may not notice. My jeans are really starting to get tight. They are always left unbuttoned when I sit down lol.

I'm so relieved to hear that others are showing. I have quite a noticeable bump. There's no hiding this anymore. My body remembers quite clearly what it did before. I easily lost my weight from last baby with nursing and haven't gained any yet this pregnancy--merely "redistributed" as my hubby says. He LOVES the bump, so I guess there's no complaining but I feel kind of self-conscious showing this early!

I'm at the annoying nothing-fits-right stage already! I think I got here around 20 weeks last time. Normal shirts aren't long enough and maternity shirts mostly look silly, like a tent without tent poles to hold it up. I'm sticking mostly to knit maternity tops or wear my bella band to hide the gap.

I was so glad to see your post, I am having baby number 8 and I started showing earlier than every they said I am only 4 maybe 5 weeks. But I look like I normally do at 3 months. Is this your experience as well. I have 2nd ultrasound on Monday Nov.28.
