    I started getting comments at around 15 weeks so I think that's when I really started to "show". Of course I was showing to myself long before then

    You always show much before you even want to announce :-)

    I think I was in maternity clothes and/or unbottoned, loose pants by 8 weeks. By 12 weeks, after a meal, people thought I was pregnant, but were afraid to ask... They didn't want to offend. By 14-16 weeks there was no doubt there was a baby in there... and I always showed about 8 weeks ahead. When I was 16 weeks, I looked 6 months... at 20 I looked like 28. I found that weeks 20-24 were kind of hard, since strangers ask you when you are due, and you have a looonnnng way to go. Now at 30.5 weeks, I look very pregnant, but friends started telling me I look pretty good for having twins... and since 36 weeks is my target, when I say "due in April", I don't get the WIDE, SCARED LOOKS (like this guy over here, some people would open their eyes so wide, I would freak out mostly strangers, or a friend's friend etc. They would ask then go, wide-eyed... and roll eyes etc.)

    We had to tell at 9wks, there was no way I could hide it any longer. My 1st pgy we got away with it till 13wks (that was a singleton). But with twins it was bound to show up sooner.

    I am 10w5d preg with triplets and I am definitely showing. I was doing the 1/2 unzipped pants with rubber band trick at 6-7 weeks, and at 8 weeks I was much more comfortable when I finally went to maternity pants. I have really grown over the past 2 weeks and I think it's just going to be an exponential growth pattern from here forward. Coworkers are rubbing my belly now if that tells you anything

    I didn't really start to show until the start of the 2nd trimester and then, I just looked fat for another month or so. I lost 9 lbs due to m/s in the first trimester and didn't have much of an appetite. I am also tall & thin. It was my first/only PG.
