Speaking of pregnancy stress....lol Is anyone who's on their 2nd+ child NOT showing yet? I'll be honest, it's kind of freaking me out a little bit....like maybe my uterus isn't growing?? lol I know I'm crazy!


I'm looking at pictures of my belly when I was pregnant with Connor, and all I keep hearing in my head is how you're supposed to show sooner with your 2nd (or more) child. I am smaller than I was when I got pregnant with C, by about 30-40 lbs. But by this time with Connor, I had a small bump and now I just feel like my smaller pants aren't quite buttoning because of all of the crap I've been eating, but I don't really have a bump yet! Anyone else not show sooner with consecutive children?

I'm on my third, and I'm not showing. And I'm little too. If anything, I look bloated most of the day, but that's the top of my stomach, not where peanut is. The uterus doesn't get big enough to stick above the pubic bone until around 12 weeks, so even if you were showing, it would just be muscle memory, not the baby.

This is my 3rd pregnancy, 4th child and I'm not showing. I'm 5'5, 120. I'm bloated for sure though! Not in a hurry to show this time, because I always miss my regular clothes! I'm 9 weeks 2 days.

I'm 11 weeks tomorrow, 2nd pregnancy, and I'm just barely starting to show. I'm a bit overweight, so I thought it was just my pooch...but over the last week or so, I've noticed that underneath the pooch is firm now, and not squishy like it was before.

This is my 10th pregnancy, I'm a week ahead of you, and I'm not showing at all yet. If this goes like the others I won't really look pregnant until at least about 20 weeks or so. Everybody is different.

I showed early with my last, but I lost weight, plus I've been throwing up everything, so I haven't gained any weight and I'm not showing.

I not starting to show yet, and this is #3 for me. I doubt I'll start feeling my uterus for at least another month. I'm definitely bloated, though!

I'm not showing yet either and this is #3. I can feel my uterus even though I'm still pretty early. I'm wondering if that's because I lost some weight since the last pregnancy. I'm pretty thin. I can tell that I have a lot of bloating, but I'm still wearing my regular clothes. I started wearing maternity at 14 weeks with my first, but didn't need to wear them until closer to 18 weeks with my second because I lost weight from nausea. Who knows when I'll show with this one.

This is my 3rd and I'm very small to begin with but I'm not showing yet. Just bloating

I've actually lost weight since I've been so sick but I don't expect to get a good little bump until sometime between 15-20 weeks. That's normally when I have the big "pop".

This is our second and still not showing, I hear women will start to show around 12 weeks with their 2nd child. I didn't show much until I was 5 months with my first. I have a feeling I will show a lot sooner than 5 months this time lol

Not showing here yet, either. I can feel my uterus if I move a certain way, like there's a fullness, but I can't feel it with my hands yet because it's still below my pubic bone. I've already put on about 6-7 lbs from eating wheat, though, so I'm looking blobby for sure.

I am showing--a lot of bloat and water retention! lol. No true baby bump yet and I am working my way to week 11 in my third pregnancy I wear maternity stuff because it is more comfortable not because I have to yet.
