I'm 9 weeks and my stomach is flat as can be. I'm 5'9", thin, with pretty strong core muscles and have barely been able to keep down food, so that's expected, but is it common to have any kind of bump by 9 weeks??
I didn't start showing until 14ish weeks. And even then I really just looked chubby (that is chubbier than usual lol). It really seems to depend on how you carry your weight anyway - some people just look like they're prego even when they're not. Do you know what she looks like normally?

This was the same for me - I felt like I was showing but really I just looked chubbier (And I was because I was STARVING all the time in the first tri lol) and my butt and hips spread way out too, even before my stomach popped.

Is it her first kid? I think you show sooner if you've already had one or two.

She did have a stillborn baby less than a year ago, but she posted a picture "3-4 weeks pregnant" and doesn't look REMOTELY as big/pregnant and she does in this picture.

That photo also included her face, and this one is just of her torso...I'm pretty skeptical.

I know alot of people have expressed interest in cloth diaper. These groups are here to help low income families get cloth so they do not have to pay for disposibles. I have not used either or talked to either I just found them on my searches one day. Hope these can help someone!

MM, it depends on your body and also on the number of previous pregnancies.

When pregnant with Cole, it wasn't until about 12 weeks that I got a little "hump". At 16 weeks, I wore my size 4 low-rise jeans for the last time, but I did have a noticeable bump.

With Carson, I had a "hump" at 10 weeks.

With Cooper, I had a noticeable "hump " at 7 weeks. I looked like I was full-term at 5 1/2 months. At 37 weeks, when he was born, I looked like I had a double-sized basketball in my shirt, and I was so big that I had to literally support my belly with a hand (or 2...lol) when walking.

Of course, I'm only 5 ft tall, so my belly had nowhere to go but OUT. Lol

Haven't had a chance to sit down and catch up on this thread but I'm 12w4d and so many people have commented on my "bump".

Apparently it's not PC to correct them by unbuttoning your pants to show them your REAL bump and explain that what they're seeing is simply the result of bloat and several days worth of constipation.
