1 Bump

When did you start to show with babies 1,2 and 3?

So here is what is going on in my very busy life; baby number 3 will be here mid Feb!! YAY!! But that means new clothes!

With my 1st, a boy, I was 9 weeks and and outgrown my pre-pregnancy jeans and tops
With the 2nd, a girl, I was almost 8weeks
And this time around I am between 7 and 8 weeks along and my pants wont button!

Did this happen to you? I got huge with my others, and only gained 23pounds with my son and 15 with my daughter... So I am not gaining FAT! Its baby/pregnancy weight...

My friend is teasing me for already buying new clothes, but I dont want to ruin, yet again, my "nice" pre-preg ones. They are pricey!

What do you think??

  • With my 1st I gained weight fast, but I didn't really show until I was almost 6 months, I was just really underweight so even though I gained 10 lbs in 12 weeks I just looked like I was finally starting to gain weight. With this one, #2 I am already showing @ 15 weeks, I almost don't fit in my pregnancy jeans from baby #1, but when I step on the scale I have only gained about 3 lbs, I just never lost all the weight from baby #1.

  • 1st I did not show until I was almost 8 months but I was also overweight to begin with (size 20)
    2nd My waist was expanding quickly but I did not look pregnancy until I was around 4-5 months again I was a little big but not as big as with the first (Size 16-18) I really think my weight had the biggest impact on how quickly I showed.

  • I didn't show until 6 months with baby... In fact, lots of people didn't even know I was pregnant until baby arrived!

  • With my now 3-year-old daughter, I didn't show til close to 6 months. I rubberbanded all my prepreggo jeans and never wore any maternity clothes. I gained 28 pounds with her. Now I am 23 months pregnant with our son and I was showing at like 8 or 9 weeks. I have gained about 10 pounds so far. My jeans automatically had to be rubberbanded this time. I still don't plan to buy maternity clothes though. It would be a waste.
