When did you start showing?

I had a baby 3 years ago and never lost the weight. So im pregnant again and im showing. Im 15 weeks and maybe further along. But i finally had to buy bigger clothes and i just cant hide it anymore. Some people are being so rude and saying YOUR SO BIG BLAH BLAH BLAH! I havent gained any weight yet and its not twins.. just figure that since my stomack doesnt have as much work or stretching to do thats its just popping out! Anyone kinda like this?

  • I'm three months now & look like I'm about six months. I feel so freakin huge!! With my first one, I didnt start showing until around 6 months, but this one is entirely different. I can't fit into my regular clothes anymore. And I get the same thing, when people ask how far along I am & I tell them, their eyes get real big like they don't believe me. Hang in there mama & don't feel like the lone ranger, I'm right there with you!

  • I never showed, never had to wear bigger clothes until 2 weeks before I delivered!
    They do say that you show sooner with each pregnancy :) Good luck and congradulations on the new little one!

  • With my daughter at 3 months I looked about six but I wasn't that heavy. I don't know why I began showing so soon but at 6 months I was huge. Looked like I was due but I wasn't. Needless to say she was born at 10 pounds.

  • With both of mine I didn't show until 7 1/2-8 months. Be happy that you got the belly longer!! I couldn't wait to start showing & both times it wasn't until pretty late.

  • I was about 7-8 months pregnant when I finally started to show. People would never had known that I was pregnant! I lost most of the weight within a few months, but then gained it all plus some the last 3 years and now i weigh the same amount that I weighed when I was pregnant and I do have a stomach too, if people didnt know me they would think I was pregnant lol!!! Oh well, I will hopefully lose it again soon...

  • My daughter was my first pregnancy, and I thought it was crazy how long it took for people to be able to tell! I thought it was obvious by 4 months, but no- people couldn't really "tell" until I was like, 6 months!
    But in my experience with every other woman I know, you get bigger a lot faster with the second one. Body memory. It knows where it's headed :)

  • Obviously it varies from woman to woman....

    With your first pregnancy, you typically won't show until the second or third trimester.
    But with your second pregnancy and every pregnancy thereafter, you'll show pretty early.
