  • This is my 5th pregnancy and I couldn't believe how fast I started showing! I'm having a girl though.

  • I showed at late 6 months. I was itty bitty. Whcih was sad because I wanted to be as big as a barn. I was so happy to finally be 'knocked up' (haha) that I wanted everyone to know. I walked around and stuck my belly out as far as possible and ended up hurting my back.

  • I showed more for my last child (a boy) than I had for my previous 2. I carried him differently though, very high up. I think every pregnancy is different, and my OB said that you show quicker on subsequent pregnancies.
