Each woman is different. It depends on how your uterus is positioned. Some normal weight women show very early, but others it's not until quite late in pregnancy. Being overweight means it may take longer to show and it may depend on how overweight you are.

So there short answer is that no one can really tell you. With my first I was wearing regular clothes no problem until about 22 weeks. Same with my second though there was some bulging out a little earlier.

I agree with PP, every woman is different. When I was pregnant with my son I didn't show until the very END... I was bummed
