  • Everyone's different, but I started showing at about 12 wks with my second, and around 5mos with my first. You tend to show earlier because your body knows what to do to make room for baby. Good luck!

  • With my second, the bloating started almost immediately. I didn't start "showing" (where other people notice) until around 14 weeks, but I felt like my pants were tight early on. With the third, I couldn't button my pants by the time I got a positive pregnancy test. And with #4, I took the test because I couldn't button my pants anymore.

  • I think it is normal! This is my second and am 10 weeks and have been bloated/showing, whichever you want to call it for a couple weeks. I am still in my clothes but I usually have a flat tummy and it is not so flat any more.

  • I started showing at 10 weeks with my second, maternity pants needed at about 15. Like everyone else said every situation is different, but definitely completely normal!
