When do you show ?

I know it can really be different from person to person. It depends on your prepregnancy weight, fitness, etc. I started showing right away but then just stopped growing thru my second trimester before I got HUGE in my third. My two friends are really tiny and they both look ready to pop even though they're only about halfway there! My other friend who's not so tiny barely even looked different the whole time. And yes, your age has its effects on a pregnancy. It's been proven that younger mothers tend to have smaller and sometimes more premature babies. So take your prenatal vitamins, eat healthy, and excercise. It will do wonders. I was 20 when I had my daughter and she was 8 lbs. 10 oz. I swear that prenatal vitamins and lots of proteins (my big craving was salisbury steak) are responsible. Best of luck.

I think that when you begin to show can vary from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy depending on a number of factors including genetics, diet, excercise, whether this is a first pregnancy etc. It doesn't sound terribly unusual to me to be starting to show at 3 and a half months. This is my first pregnancy. I hadn't gained any weight and didn't really start to show until I was at about 18 weeks. It seemed like my abdomen started to pop out overnight! I'm now at about 21 weeks, and I'm not huge yet, but I'm definitely starting to show now - my abdomen has grown a lot over the last few weeks. Hope this helps.
