After you've had a couple kids, do you tend to show quicker with subsequent pregnancies?

Kinda. But I think my growth with this boy is similar to Veronika's pregnancy. I mean, with Natasha I hid it from my co-workers until I was 5 months along and they had nooooo idea. No so much the for the following two times!

I didn't start showing any earlier with Danny than I did with Eric. I got a little bit of bloat pretty early this time, but just barely anything - I really have to be looking for it to tell it's there. I'm also convinced it's more because of diet than actual showing... At this point, I'm eating fairly often, and while I'm trying to eat healthy, it's not nearly as easy to manage snacks and nausea while taking care of 2 boys as it was while sitting at an office desk 8-9 hours a day.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

I definitely did! With Paul I was in maternity clothes at around 10 weeks!!! Maybe it was just a bloat, but I think I looked pregnant!

I had more bloat at the beginning, but that could have been from the IVF as well, I was more sensitive to that in subsequent cycles. But I don't think I popped out any faster, i showed early with both.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!

I think generally it's true that you show sooner but not in every case. I showed way sooner with my second than my third.

I was in maternity clothes by week 8 with my 2nd pregnancy. Finally out of them now though... it was too upsetting to keep wearing them...and thankfully the weight came off quickly after the surgery.

I think all your muscles are still stretched

I'm 8w3d and I'm still wearing my regular clothes. They are definitely snug by evening.
Thank you Claire1979!
