  • with my 2nd I didnt show until around 4 or 5 months...but I had a little bit of belly already lol so that mightbe why..i think when you are really small you show alot sooner. but mine wasnt noticable..until then -- that is when I started wearing maternity pants.

    I think I might have a small chance that I am pregnant again -- my LMP was november 24th also...when did you take a test?

  • I am 13 weeks and have been slightly showing for about a week and half and haven't gained any weight with subsequent pregnancies you show earlier because your body know what is going on. You could be further alone, ask the doc to do an early ultrasound to find out.

  • My Daughter is 10 months as of 12.27 so I guess that could be it. with Chloe I only gained about 20-24 lbs and lost it all within 2 months and didnt show with her till 5th month

  • With my second I started showing around 12-13 weeks. I bought a pair of maternity jeans at Old Navy around that time bc my normal jeans were getting uncomfprtable and I felt weird about undoing my button on my jeans and holding it togther with a pony tail holder.
    I think it depends on your size. If you have a little bit of a belly then it may take longer before you show. If your smaller and have more of a flat stomach or not as much flab then it wont take as long for you to show.
