Did you start showing faster with each pregnancy?

This is my third pregnancy our first was born early and died but the second carried her full term. I'm pregnant again and almost 8 weeks and already having to go into my maturity clothes. Did you get big faster or start to show early the more pregnancy you had?

  • Last time I was showing by 16 weeks, this time no one could tell until I was almost 6 months along. I got so sick at first that I lost like 20 pounds. Of course I've gained all that back plus some....yay.

  • Yep. I didn't end up getting bigger at the end, but I definitely showed a lot faster each time.

  • I am actually a little reverse I guess. with my first one I showed and gained 35 pounds, my second born child I probably started showing at about 16 weeks, with this pregnancy i knew I was pregnant at 20 weeks but to everyone else I just looked fat...around the 6 months mark I definately couldn't hide it anymore! I am 36 weeks tomorrow and I feel like I have definately popped out in the last 3 weeks.

  • i'm only 14 weeks with my third, but my gosh, i look 6 months already. I've been showing for a while. My two kids stretched me out majorly, so my body knows the drill, and just 'falls out' lol
    I've only gained 5lbs total, but I am using my bella bands, and am in mat. pants, and bigger shirts. I'm already super uncomfortable. I hope I grow into the pouch that is sitting here, because if not, i'm going to be huge. i'm only 5'3 and i'm at 150, so some think i'm 'fat' others who know say I have a cute bump. . .but its more than a bump. lol

  • I'm almost 11 weeks and still just look like I maybe ate too much unless I'm not sucking in. :] My goal is to only gain 15lbs this time around though since I gained 45 and still have 20 of that on me.
