Hi.  Well, most women for first pregnancies take much longer than above to show.  I started 'really' showing at 20 weeks.  Our muscles are taut before baby and hold tight.  So, you often see a complaint from first time moms about how long it takes to show.  Definitely longer than 10 to 12 weeks.  Many women also often have few start up side effects with being fatigued often as the first one.  Around 6 to 7 weeks is when the hormones are kicked in enough to create more 'symptoms.  good luck

Some women don't even show it really depends on the woman's body. I have  female friends that got pregnant and had never showed and they were skinny like a twig and my mother never showed with my younger 2 sibling and she also was skinny as a twig.
