  • Well, I only have 3. The first I didn't start showing until I was about 6 months pregnant. The second was 7 years later, and I didn't show very early either. My second and third are only 2 years apart, and I always thought that I showed sooner because my body didn't have enough time to go back to normal before I got pregnant again, but who knows.

  • You'd think you would have noticed the 2nd, 3rd, 4th..... It's your body. How would we know?

  • I started showing a little earlier with each pregnancy. My tummy muscles just weren't the same.... So I think it's normal. Maybe you are having twins!!! Lol

  • This is your 5th and you didn't notice on your 2nd 3rd or 4th?

  • Yes because the abdominal muscles have already been stretched from the first pregnancy.
