Is the belly noticeable in the first month of pregnancy?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/31/2022

No, the pregnant belly does not start to become evident until later in pregnancy, around the 17th week of pregnancy.

However, there may be symptoms late in the first month of pregnancy such as abdominal bloating and nausea, due to the hCG hormone released by the embryo after implantation.
