So I am 8 weeks and I look like I'm 3 months. I know with a second child you start showing much earlier, but I think this is ridiculous. I look very big, I can't hide it, I know I'm also very bloated but man.....I don't have clothes that hides the belly. Does this happened to anyone else?

Oh yeah. I got super bloated at 8 weeks and looked huge. It went down by 9 weeks and then I popped again around 10 and 11 weeks. I was extremely constipated though. Still am, but not even as bad as I was. There was no denying a pregnancy from the get go though.

Oh heck yeah. At 6 weeks people thought I was further along. I got bigger with my second, but this one is going to be bigger.

OK... How did I miss your big news?!?!?! Congratulations! And, welcome to pregnancy after already having a baby. The muscle tone is different. You will be showing sooner. And, you should celebrate it! I am sooooo happy for you!

Oh yeah I look about 5 months and I'm 3.....started showing around 7-8 weeks and I had pretty good muscle tone from working out a lot. But I just pop as soon as I get preg with every baby after my 1st.

I think that's pretty normal. This is my first but one of my friends who is due in April with her 2nd was surprised at how soon she popped! She said she felt fat around 7 weeks...much earlier than with her first. Looks like that's a good sign everything is moving as it should

I was able to wear normal clothes in bigger sizes until 20 weeks with DS and was able to keep my pregnancy a secret from coworkers until then. With DD I was wearing maternity pants by 8 weeks and had to tell by 13 weeks. This time, forget it.

well it depends on your stomach muscles more than anything. I don't have any, so I show really quickly. Here is a pic of me at 7weeks with Miranda (she was my 4th baby and 7th pregnancy).

I go back and forth as to how much I am showing, this is my 2nd pg, I showed at around 6 weeks, because of bloating, went back down then popped again, then went back down, it has changed every week...this week, at almost 15 weeks, I am "smaller" than I was last week, yet the TP measurement says I am slightly bigger...lol! But, I definitely know the difference with my clothing!!
