Most women start to show around 4 or 5 months. But all women are different. How it feels is unexplainable. I felt quite bloated within a month of conception, so it seemed like I was "showing" although it wasn't really the baby. I had to wear maternity clothes by 6 weeks because of the bloating and I carry all out front (I could rest a dinner plate on my stomach by 9 months!). Waiting to "show" is one of the most anticipated moments (or one of the most dreaded) in pregnancy. If you are looking forward to it, go ahead and start wearing the maternity clothes now! If not, just wear clothing that is a little looser. By the way, it is a WONDERFUL feeling emotionally (although not always physically). If you know what it feels like to be bloated before your period, that is the physical sensation at first, but it's all good because you know there is life in you and usually you want to show it off rather than hide it!

Are stomach pains while pregnant the same as period pains?

Contractions feel like menstrual cramps. If you're pregnant and feel like you have menstrual cramps, call your doctor or go to the hospital. I have 4 children myself. There is no better way to describe the onset of labor than it feels like you are getting ready to start your period.
