it's different for everyone. nobody can tell you when you'll get bigger.

i didn't pop out until 35 weeks. i never got big and i ended up having a big baby.

a girl i work with is only 12 weeks and she's already noticeably pregnant (it's her 2nd).

don't worry, it'll happen eventually. try not to compare yourself to others.

it depends on your size and shape and how you end up carrying the baby. some women don't show as much as others if they are tall, for example, because they have more room between their ribs and hips so the baby doesn't stick out as much. i think when your uterus gets too big to fit in your pelvic cavity anymore it will lift up and out and you will notice a change. that's what they mean when they say your belly "pops" out.

With my first pregnancy I didn't begin to show until 7 months. Then for my second I started to show around 4 months. Now I am 17 wks pregnant and I started showing at 11wks. So I think everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. Trust me when you pop you will pop and you will probably feel huge, especially if you are tiny to begin with.
