How many weeks do you start showing?

According to BabyCenter, many first time moms will begin developing a baby bump between 12 and 16 weeks. Those who have been pregnant before may start showing sooner, as their uterus and abdominal muscles are already stretched from previous pregnancies.
A.

How early can you start showing?

First-time moms usually begin developing a baby bump between 12 and 16 weeks. Moms who've already been pregnant start showing sooner, since their uterine and abdominal muscles have already been stretched from an earlier pregnancy.
  • Can you see a bump at 12 weeks?

    If you're a first-time mum, you could begin developing a baby bump any time between 12 and 16 weeks. But if this isn't your first baby, you may start showing sooner. This is because the muscles in your uterus (womb) and belly may already have been stretched from your last pregnancy.
  • When can you tell people you are pregnant?

    If you prefer to keep things private in the event of a loss, you'll want to keep your news under wraps until the risk of miscarriage drops dramatically, which happens at the end of the first trimester, around 10 to 12 weeks. That's why this is such a common time for the Big Tell.
  • How long does it take for a pregnancy to show up on a test?

    Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. This is usually about two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.
B.

How far along are you when you have morning sickness?

Morning sickness usually starts around 6 weeks pregnant which is around two weeks after your missed period. As it's a common early symptom of pregnancy and to most women starts around 6 weeks, it is often the very first indicator to many women that they may be pregnant.
  • Can you still be pregnant and not have morning sickness?

    "Not everyone experiences morning sickness, just like not everyone gets motion sickness." Although most women get their morning sickness between weeks 8 and 14, every woman and every pregnancy is different, and you may find that you develop pregnancy-related sickness later.
  • Can you have morning sickness after two weeks?

    Morning sickness can start two weeks after you've conceived, when you're actually four weeks pregnant. It's more common for it to start when you're about six weeks pregnant, though (Blackburn 2013, Murray and Hassall 2014, NHS 2016). You may feel nauseous, with or without vomiting, at any time of the day or night.
  • How soon can you take a pregnancy test?

    Pregnancy tests are most reliable from the first day of your missed period, although some tests can be used as early as 4 or 5 days before your period is due. Check the packaging of your test to find out when it can be used. If you have regular periods, you'll probably know when your next period is due.
C.

Can you be showing at 10 weeks pregnant?

You may desperately want to look pregnant, but you won't be showing for a few extra weeks. (Most women won't start sporting a "bump" until their second trimester, though second-time mothers may begin showing sooner.) Your belly may even be slightly more rounded at 10 weeks pregnant.
