Do you remember when you started showing with #2, 3, 4 etc? I know they say you show earlier with subsequent pregnancies but just wondering what ya'll's experiences are.

I think I started showing with my DD around 15 or 16 weeks (but could still hide it if I wanted to). I'm curious when I'll start showing with #2.

I think I started wearing maternity clothes at 12 or 13 weeks with my first, I was super excited to be preggers that time, so I may have been wearing them a tad earlier than needed. I don't really remember with #2, I had a job where I wore scrubs every day, so I didn't really need too many maternity things. Number 3 was completely unexpected, and I had started exercising a LOT right before I was preggers. I continued to exercise frequency through the entire pregnancy, and I remember bragging to a friend and one point that I was 24 weeks along, and still wearing my "skinny" jeans. I completely popped out after that.

DS - I did not show very much with him at all! At the end of pregnancy I only looked 4 months pregnant. No one would believe me when I told them my due date
DD1 - I had a noticeable bump with her about 15 weeks
DD2 - Noticeable bump about 12 weeks
Twins I miscarried - Huge bump at 8 weeks! I was in maternity pants at 6 weeks.
This one - My pants are already getting a little snug, I expect I will have a bump by 10 weeks.

I didn't start showing with DS1 until I was about 23 weeks. With DS2 I had a noticeable small bump by 12 weeks but I could tell around 9 1/2-10 weeks. So I'm guessing with this one I'll be able to tell by 7-8 weeks and have a noticeable bump by 10-11 weeks.

with DS i didn't show at all until after 20 weeks. even then, i was small until the last couple weeks. with my loss, i started showing at 8 weeks. it was crazy! this is pregnancy #3, and i'm not showing yet, just a bit bloated.

I pop early because I'm so small and skinny so I was in maternity clothes pretty early. I know you could for sure tell that I was pregnant by 15 weeks with the 3 boys.

When I got pregnant with the twins I was 110 pounds soaking wet and in great shape so I started showing pretty early. I don't remember exactly but it was easily around the 8-10 week range.

With Miles I think I started showing around 12-13 weeks. I remember being bloated in the beginning but didn't need maternity pants until around 12 weeks or so.

This time around I am still fluffy in the belly department from having Miles so it's really hard to distinguish "showing" from just having a pooch . My jeans are definitely tight but I attribute that to my serious bloat this time around. I probably won't "show" for at least another 6-8 weeks.

I'm normally around 106 lbs. I tend to get fat all over when I'm pregnant (not just a belly), but I show early. With both my first and second I was showing by 12 weeks. I could still hide it if I wore really baggy sweatshirts and stuff, but it was probably obvious to most people who know me.

I feel pudgy already this time around, and I'm not even 6 weeks yet. I'm guessing I'll definitely be showing by 10-12 weeks again.

I usually start showing at around 16 weeks. I already have a little bit of a pooch from the others so I may show faster this time. I sure hope not. I definitely have to lose the pooch after this baby.

I want to say around 10 - 12 weeks...
With my first I started showing around 9-10ish...

I am on the smaller side though, its hard for to me to gain weight....Never wore maternity anything. I think the biggest size jeans I wore at 9 months was a size 5.
