Not sure if this is true or not, but with the 2nd baby do you show earlier than the first? Has this been true or not for any of you moms?

I hope I'm not the only one! I'm 5w1d and I swear I see a bump! I haven't gained any weight yet, thank goodness. I was hoping to hold off telling most people till 10-11 weeks, but at this rate I don't think I'm gonna be able to hide it that long =)

Yep same here! I'm hoping to wait until 12wks, but especially after I eat my stomach just gets huge! lol and I know before I come out with it, I'm thinking peopel might think I'm just gaining weight in the mid section:] ame here I so far weigh the same, and hoping not to gain too much weight.

I'm definitely showing earlier/more this time, but I'm not sure how much of it is that it is my second pregnancy, and how much of it is due to the twins.

I really didn't start showing earlier until baby number three, but we are all different and your body knows the drill of what to do and expect.

I have gotten bigger and bigger each time. I fear how big I will get. DS#1 and DD I gained 50lbs, DS#2 I only gained 25lbs but my belly was still way bigger than the previous 2, Yikes!

I'm currently 5 weeks pg with my second and I look and feel about 4 months along. I'm hoping a lot of it is bloat and will eventually go down because i refuse to break out the maternity clothes yet!!

I did not. I think there is a difference between bloating and having loose muscles vs showing. I do think the more kids you are, the more bloated you will look because muscles aren't as tight.

This is my 6th and it's mostly bloat. I can't wait for it to go away! I avoid shirts that make me look 5 months along.

Im also battling the bloat. I had to break down and buy maternity pants already. Ive lost 6 pounds but gained a good 2 inches already. Everything I wear makes me look like Im pushing 5-6 months.

This is my 2nd and I feel like I look like I did when I was 6 months pregnant with DS. I didn't start showing for a long time with him though and I feel extremely swollen and bloated and I've already gained 3lbs! I really hope it's just from bloating.

I'm showing earlier, but I don't get the cute pregnant belly until much much later so now I just look fatter. At least people won't be able to tell I'm pregnant too soon.

I didn't show much at all with Rebecca, showed more (starting around 7 months) with Elias, but still not much and he was nearly 9lbs. This one there is no evidence as of yet. We jokingly say it would take multiples for me to actually look pregnant, but honestly, it's probably true.
