With my first I showed pretty early on, by 10-12 weeks it was obvious I had a little bump. With my second, I was able to hide it better (and I started out 5 pounds lighter too) and didn't really start showing until about 14-15 weeks. But didn't gain any weight until 20 weeks. It's different for everyone, but typically with your first, you don't show right away.
Wow! I wish I was not showing. I had a MC at 20 weeks and gained 15 lbs with that one which we lost in May - Got peg in July with the extra 15 lbs - I had lost 5 and now I am HUGE!!! I am 13 weeks now and OBVIOUSLY preg. I ran into a friend from high school who thought i was like 5 months. Needless to say - I have even outgrown a pair of maternity pants (which I had a HUGE meltdown over). The good thing though is that I have only gained about 5 lbs and can't get eough fruits and vegetables this time around.
I didnt really show until almost 7mos. and it litterally happened almost overnight!! I have pictures of me on the beach in a bikini at 6mos and didnt look pregnant at all. Soon after I "popped" as everyone sai. It was weird. I was really small so I thought I would show early but I didnt. It was weird. With my second I had a belly by 8 weeks!!
