When did you start to show with your second baby?

I just found out i am pregnant 2 weeks ago, and some days my pants fit tighter than others. But i was in maternity clothes with my first really early. So i am 6 weeks along, and i know they say that you show faster with your second. So i was wondering when you ladies started showing with your second child and needing maternity clothes. I have them still but dont want to look like an impaitent pregnant woman by wearing them now, however, i should to get the wear out of them considering they are more expensive than reg clothes! LOL

  • Right away!! LOL I was so bloated in the beginning, I felt "fat" just a week after I found out. I started to pouch out at like...7 weeks...I feel huge now and I'm only 16 weeks. Yeah, with the second one, your tissues and such are already stretched out so everything seems to fall forward a lot easier.

  • about 8 or 9 weeks my tighter pants stopped buttoning. At 12 weeks I woke up one day with a belly! lol. I had to put up over 1/2 my pants. Now I am almost 16 weeks and I can fit into the jeans I wore when I was 6 months pregnant with my 1st! I'm dreaded how much bigger I'm going to get! My maternity pants do fit now...but I really don't want to wear them yet. Whenever these jeans stop fitting it's time to move on to the maternity pants.

  • stil around 6months with my 2nd and 3rd babies. I am pregnant with my 4th baby and am 12 weeks and its still not noticeable so i may show a llittle earlier with this one, but i have lost 8 lbs so its hard to tell yet when i will show with this one.

  • Around 4 months I think. But I didn't start wearing my maternity clothes right off the bat. I bought some nice clothes that were a little less restrictive than my normal clothes, some straight dresses and 2 pair of inexpensive jeans (levi's signature from walmart) in a size larger than normal. That got me through the couple of months between when I couldn't fit in my "regular" clothes but wasn't ready for maternity; and then that's also what I fell back on the month or two after I had my baby before I could get back in my regular clothes. It was nice to have them!

  • I get severe morning sickness and by 16 wks I'd lost 15lbs from my pre-preg. weight. I'm 26 wks and 2 days ago a random stranger asked when I was due for the first time! I am still wearing regular pants but unbuttoned with a bella band. Its funny cause I showed really early with my first.
