SHOWING

So I am 8 weeks PG and i am already starting to show some. This is my second child but with my first I didn't start to show until I was 5 months along. Is this normal has this happened to anyone else?

  • I started showing about 8 or 9 weeks and NO IT WASNT BLOATING, everybody is different but you are fine, I had a little pooch and my clothes started fitting tightly at 8 weeks now I am 28 weeks and I seem so huge but I am right on with size. Hope this helps and dont worry about showing be proud of your body you have a precious life in there. GOOD LUCK

  • You show much faster with your 2nd baby than the first. You stomach muscles have already been stratched out the 2nd time around.

  • TOTALLY normal. I am 17 weeks along with my second and this time around I showed way faster and was in my maternity clothes a LOT faster too. Your tummy is saying "oh yeah, been there, done that...gonna so it again! Congrats! =]

  • I started showing at 8 weeks with my 3rd. The more you have the faster you show
