I am 11 weeks...and am not really showing yet I was told its normal to show between 13-20 weeks...everyone is differrent. But when I was 6 weeks I thought I was showing...it was just bloating though...not baby. Your uterus is behind your pelvic bone until you are about 10 weeks. Congrats!

With #1, I was in the 2nd trimester before people were able to tell I was pregnant. Maybe 15 weeks for people that knew me and 20ish weeks for strangers. With #2, it was much earlier. Friends/family could tell at 8-10 weeks and strangers started making comments by the time I was 16-18 weeks. I'm 5w0d with #3 now and so far no bump but I'm sure it'll be soon.

Yea I had that same bloated feeling at 6 weeks! I am 12 weeks and jeans are really getting hard to button. But not really showing that anyone notices. So you will be fine at Christmas no one will notice. My secretary is pregnant and she was like 100 lbs when she got pregnant very thin in shape girl and she started showing rather quickly I think cause she was sooo thin.

Everyone starts "showing" at different times. I'm 9 1/2 weeks and have not been able to wear some of my pants for a few weeks. I know some of it is bloating, but surely not all of it since my lower abdomen is pretty consistent in size.

lurking from 3rd trimester. Well I'm tall and have a long torso...I'm 29 weeks and people are JUST starting to ask me when I'm due! I've been in maternity jeans since the end of my first trimester b/c I couldn't keep the zipper up, but I just looked a little chunky in the belly! So everybody is different! I think it's funny that I'm in my third trimester and people are just figuring it out! LOL!
ME(36) DH(39) EDD 2-28-11 TORN BETWEEN PINK OR BLUE TEAM, I JUST WANT THE BABY TO BE HEALTHY :-)

That makes me feel better because I've always been slender and just recently (right before pregnancy,) I started to gain a little weight. I'm only about 8 wks and already feel like I have a baby bump, or atleast thats my story-hehe! My first appointment is this Thursday, may even be further along then I realize.
