"Showing": This is very common in first pregnancies. The more pregnancies a woman has, the earlier she will show (has to do with stretching and muscle memory). Don't worry, by the time you "show" you will wish you didn't! the taller a woman is, the less she will show also. Usually, by 6 months, 24-28 weeks, the majority of pregnancies are obvious, but a few don't show until the last few weeks.
