Readers Respond: When did your pregnant belly show?

Responses: 425


Updated July 05, 2009

From the article: When will I start to show?
The pregnant belly is a miracle. It stretches to accommodate your growing uterus and baby and then shrinks back down. But most pregnant women wonder when in pregnancy their belly will show and let the world know that they are pregnant. So, when did your belly show? Was it the second trimester? Maybe the first? How did it show? Was it different with subsequent pregnancies? Who noticed it first? Share Your Story

For all those "1st" time moms

Okay I'm 8 weeks and I realize everyone is excited. I was reading on here on how some girls are showing at 2 and 4 weeks.... Do you realize that they calculate your due date from your last period? So.. At 2 weeks you haven't even ovulated and at 4 weeks the baby just implanted into your uterus. I think it's a lot of miss informed teens who's posting things like that. And to answer a lot of people's questions if your tummy gets bigger after you ate it's because you just ate.... You might not of noticed before but now since your 6 weeks pregant it's a big deal? The babys a size of a seed. What happened to the education. Hell I'm 19 I freaking know better. Every body is different and everyone is excited but if your not provided with the right information it makes you look stupid. No matter how skinny you are your not going to show at 4 weeks
