Is this your first pregnancy and you are wondering when you might start showing? Here's a helpful guide on what to expect.
Important factors to consider
- Weight/body type before pregnancy
- Are you carrying more than one baby? (twins/triplets)
- Is this your first time being pregnant?
When do you start showing with first pregnancy?
This will all depend on your body type before you became pregnant. It can also happen sooner if you are carrying multiples.
For a singleton pregnancy, you might start noticing your bump around 16-18 weeks.
When do you start showing with second pregnancy?
For most women, the second and third pregnancies on, you will usually show a lot sooner.
This is because your muscles are already stretched out from your previous pregnancy.
Anywhere from 10-12 weeks, you might already notice that growing bump!
When do you start showing with twins?
If you are carrying twins, you will show a lot sooner because you have two babies growing instead of one. For first time moms, you might expect to notice your bump around 10-12 weeks.
It might be as early as 16 weeks with your first or 10 weeks with your second child. If you are carrying twins, it will be sooner too!
As baby grows and your muscles relax from hormones, your bump will start to appear. This is a fun time to start wearing maternity clothes that make your bump stand out!
