    Hi,

    I was wondering when do you petite ladies start to show?

    I am 4'11 and weight 105-110 lbs (it varies all the time) and I am 11 weeks preggo now. All i get is after dinner a big bloat but when i wake up the next morning everything is gone!

    I heard that petite ppl start to show earlier because there is not much room inside...but it's not the case for me :nope: Is it normal?

    Well...I am 5'3 and before I got pregnant with my first, weighed about 106 and didn't start to show until I was around 14 weeks. Was all bloat before then lol this time I am starting out weighing a bit more but hoping to pop a little sooner lol hope you get your baby bump soon!! :)

    I'm 5'2'' 115 pre pregnancy and I already have a little bump and I'll be 13 weeks on Thursday. It varies from person to person. But I think the average is anywhere from 12-18 weeks, mostly around the 15-16 week mark. I popped soon, although I attribute some of it to bloat lol.

    I am the same size as you. This is my 2nd child. With my first, I really started to show, not just bloat, around 14-15 weeks. Right now all I've got is evening bloat! Not too pretty, haha.

    I'm 5'1 and I was 122 at 6 weeks, I'm 12 + weeks now and I have ate more since finding out purely because I was dieting before but my belly just looks like its podgy lol! I'm trying to convince myself it's baby podge but I'm not too sure! I know with your first you show later so hopefully a few more weeks it'll be bloat and then bump :) x
