With my first pregnancy I got a baby bump within the first couple of months but it was not noticeable to anyone. I would say when I was closer to 12 weeks it was noticeable!

When you get pregnant after the first things get bigger more quickly (around 6-8 weeks).

I have one little girl (7 years old) and this is my 8th pregnancy. I am 5 wks/6 days and I can't fit into my pants but I know it is only because bloating and progesterone.  I remember having a significant bump that was definitely baby at 11 weeks with my first.  I woke up one morning and there it was.  Really cool - can't wait

Thanks ladies! I really can't wait!

It also depends on your size / weight a bit.  shorter, smaller framed people have a tendancy to show sooner - the baby/uterus has only one direction to go, out.  If you are taller, it seems that the bump takes longer to appear.  I am only 5 feet tall (on a good day) and on the small side.

Well I am 5'5 and I am not fat but I am not extra thin either so it probably will take time.

I bet around 10 - 12 weeks you'll notice a change.  I am so excited to get into those horrible maternity clothes!  Seriously I am.
