Show sooner with second baby?

Do you know anyone or yourself..... Start showing before you knew you were pregnant?

  • No---I knew I was pregnant at about 6 weeks but showed when I was 5 months along with my first baby. But at three months with my second. It makes sense to show earlier with the seond baby because your stomach muscles have been stretched out so it pops out sooner .

  • In all three pregnancies I didn't show until about the 6th month and I really didn't need to wear maternity clothes until like the last month... my first 2 babies were over 9 lbs. I think it has to do with stomach muscles and the body structure. Some women show right away....others not until the end.

  • I showed slightly soon the second time, so like at 22 weeks instead of 30

  • With DD1 I was showing at 5mos, but with DD2 (because I'd gotten fatter before the pregnancy) I wasn't really showing until 6 or 7 mos. I worry that if I have another term pregnancy I'll be so fat everyone will just assume I'm fat and not pregnant. /sigh I should probably go for a walk now. :)
