When does the pregnant belly start to show?

By Sarai Arrones BSc, MSc (embryologist).
Last Update: 05/11/2022

Belly growth usually starts to become noticeable around the fifth month of pregnancy, when the bottom of the uterus reaches the level of the navel. However, it may be noticed earlier or later depending on the woman's age, her constitution and whether it is her first pregnancy. If you have been a mother before, the muscles of your abdominal walls have already given way and the belly will be visible earlier.
