  • At about 5 mos. You start to show sooner with your next pregnancies b/c your body has already been there before.

  • With my first child I started showing at about 5- 5 1/2 months, but it kinda looked like I just got chunky, you couldn't really tell it was a baby bump until about 6 1/2 months that's when I really popped out! Good luck with ur pregnancy!!

  • I showed much sooner with the second. I didn't show until around 6.5 months with my first, I was tiny to start with too. I thought there was something wrong with him, but he came out at 9lbs 1oz.
    With the second, I started showing around 3 months.

  • Everyone will be different and with each pregnancy may or might not be different. I started to show at 3 months with my 1st, 2nd at 3 months and 3rd at 2 months and all babies were big babies at over 10lbs. It also depends on the where and how your placenta and uterus lies in your body.

  • I didn't start showing till about 6mths with my 1st...the around 4months with my 2nd and 5or so months with my third and now i am on my 4th and final and I am almost 4mths and still not showing...for me the girls made me bigger and my one boy made me look like I had a basketball under my shirt so I think everyone is different.

  • With my first, I didn't show until the 6th month; but I was walking a mile to and from work every day (5xwk). With my second, I had changed jobs, so I didn't have that the end of the 3rd month, I had a little bump...and huge boobs.

  • I never showed until after 4 months with all three. Maybe a little sooner with my third as I had gestetational diabetes.
