I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my second. Is it true that you start showing sooner?

not many of my pants that fit just a few weeks ago fit me anymore and i for sure have noticed my boobs and my ass and stomach getting bigger. or could i just be imagining it?

  • I guess it just depends on the person. I didn't, but I'm 5'10" With all three it wasn't noticeable till about my 7th month, but with my last I was huge.

  • I only have one but with her second and third my cousin showed by 2 or 3 months so for her it was very true.

  • By a month and a half with my second I couldn't wear my pants already.

  • If you're imagining it, then so am I. I'm 10 weeks along with my second, and I swear I started getting a little belly around 7 weeks. By 8 weeks, I had to buy a new bra, because I've already gone up one cup size.

  • I'm pregnant with my second, and I showed at about month 2, but I could zip my pants either :) I'm huge now, at 7 mos. I'm as big as I was at 9 mos with my son. But I got pregnant again when my son was 6 months old, so they are really close together too.

  • it is true. It can depend though, how close together your pregnancies are, your own size height and weight, and the way you're carrying. I showed right away wit my 2nd baby (even though I was 25 lbs heavier with her than with my son-who I was rather thin with). this time (baby number 3) I began to show at 3 months and this time I am carrying way out front (like a huge basketball) I did not carry this way with my son or my daughter. I had my children close together. 23 months and 3 years apart.

  • I did. I looked preg to myself at about 7-8 weeks, by 13 weeks everyone could tell and I was in some pregnancy clothes.
