when did you start showing?

Hi guys- quick question:
When did you start showing with your pregnancies? I mean, really showing, not just "I look chubbier and my clothes don't fit" but unmistakabley maternity clothes pregnant? This is my third baby and with my 1st and 2nd, I was hardly showing at 20 weeks (I am tall.) and I am just curious about your experiences....

I started showing around 5 1/2 months.. I am 5'4" so it may be different for you because you are tall.

My friend just had her second baby and she was bigger with her first.

7 1/2 months and I'm not kidding. People are still shocked when I tell them I have less than 6 weeks to go. I have been told more than once recently that I look about 6 months pg. It has been disappointing. I wanted to look pg a long time ago. On the other hand, I haven't had a lot of discomfort. I'm 5'7".

funny when I had my ultrasound tuesdday there was this woman there 19 weeks  (or 20 weeks)  she was talking loud on her cell phone that's how I know  and she did not look one day pregnant.  So I tried to think back to my son - I was maybe five months  ish.  but with last miscarriage I had a pooch very early.  (i was 98  pounds when I got pg with son and 105  last time with the miscarriage)
