Default How soon do you show?

OK, so this is my first pregnancy, and I was wondering for any of you experienced moms, how soon did you show?

I am medium height, medium frame and about 15 pounds overweight. (5'5" 155lbs). I am 7 weeks now. I am trying to wait as long as possible to let people at work know, as it will affect my schedule that they give me next year. If I can wait until 13 or 14 weeks, that would cement next year's schedule. But, since it will be spring, there are no big sweaters to hide behind!

Thanks a bunch!

It can depend on a lot of things. Even though I was overweight, a lot, with my kids I have very slim hips, and a medium torso, no where for the baby to go but out. It can also depend on how stong your abs are. Hopefully you can hide your tummy for another 6 weeks or so. The thing about early pg and being even a bit over weight is that people are often afraid to ask if you are pg for fear that you are just gaining weight and they will embarass themselves and you.

Ooohh, good point. I hope that they don't ask. But the people I work with tend to be really nosey, so maybe not!

Oh I forgot to say... I'm also in the same boat... I'm not telling people at work yet because I'm up for a little promotion and I don't want being pregnant to affect that.
