How soon did you show with your second pregnancy?

I am 11 weeks and feel my stomach maybe getting harder and a little bigger. I was a little overweight prior to conceiving so I really can tell as much as I did the first time but I didn't show until about 26 weeks the first time.

  • I was wondering that too. It just depends on your body type I think, Are you tall or short... Big hips or not? Stuff like that all has a factor in it. I am 7 weeks I don't think I will show until about 20 weeks or so. I am tall and have "mommy" hips though... So average it from that.

    Good luck and congratulations!

  • Right now in gestation, your uterus is very, very small. Even if it's your second or third child. It will feel harder, and should be about the size of a grapefruit. Likely below your pelvic bone. However, if you are one of the women that is bigger with your second significantly, maybe your uterus will grow quicker. As it grows, it will shift your stomach and other organs, you know that already. :)

    With my first, I did not show until about 6 or so months. No one really even knew I wasn't just gaining weight til close to 7 months.
    With my second, I started showing around 5 months, but as a woman, I noticed the changes in my uterus, and my body, far before then.
    This is my third baby (not counting miscarriages), and I feel I REALLY started to show late last week (15 weeks - 4.5 months). I could see and feel a difference around 13 weeks, though. So, I wouldn't feel bad. If its weight gain, will show in face, and other places 2.
