I always heard that you get bigger with your second and faster. I was wondering when you started to show with 1st and 2nd or any other after that.

I have 3 children and have always started to show around the same time, 4-5 months. I've never shown earlier or later. I think it depends on the woman and the baby. Some women show earlier in successive pregnancies, others do not. I have heard people say that with each pregnancy a woman shows earlier than the last pregnancy, it never happened to me though. Just like they said I would keep the boobs I acquired during pregnancy... (looking down shirt) Nope, I still have no chest (I love being pregnant, it's the one time I have something to fill an A cup bra, normally I have trouble filling a nearly A cup). LOL

Last time I started showing about 13 weeks and this time 9-10 weeks. bloated is a whole other story! haha -- When I say showing I mean more that I know there's a baby bump i'll add pics I guess you could say 16 weeks is when it was noticable for everyone. This time I'm not sure no one can really tell unless they know.
First Preg 13 weeks

I've showed about the same with both. I started getting a bump around 12 weeks with both, and I'm about the same size now (at 18 weeks) as I was with my daughter!
