  • I didn't actually "show" until I was about six months pregnant with my second but I started wearing yoga and sweat pants earlier because I felt more comfortable in them. Why? How far along are you and are you showing yet?

  • I was 30 weeks when I started showing. But I worked out the whole entire pregnancy.

  • I was about 30 weeks with my second, but i didn't buy maternity clothes. I just wore pants that were low in the waist. I just bought bigger shirts. I guess i am too cheap to buy maternity clothes. I didn't really need to spend the money on them.

  • Wow!! I must be way different. I just found out I was pregnant so I'm only about 5 weeks. With my first I was already starting to show and wear some maternity clothes by about 14 weeks even though I really had only gained a few pounds. So I thought I would be starting to pop even earlier with this one because I heard you usually show sooner with the second one.

  • Pregnant with #2 currently. I started to have a tiny bump at 13 weeks. But I got huge after that. The second one, has been different, and I look bigger quicker with this one.

  • Its funny, they say you show earlier with your 2nd and get bigger faster...But with DD1 I was gaining at 10 w and clearly showing by 12ish. This time, I'm 22w 3d and just now starting to show. And my starting weight is about the same.
