mom's of more than one, how early did you start to show (at least noticable to yourself) with your second?? I estimate I am around 5 weeks and I feel like I have a 3 month bump!

This is baby #5 for me and I need the stretchy pants already. I had a little bit of a tummy already but it has expanded more. I know most is bloating but I also read that after multiple pregnancies, your body already knows what to do and starts doing it's thing and causes you to show early on. I took a photo to start my monthly pregnancy shots.

With #3, I was in larger pants/maternity pants at 6 weeks - needed the extra room.

I am starting out heavier this time so even though I can tell, I'm hoping to stay in my regular clothes a bit longer. My belly has totally changed shape though. Everything gets moved around to make room for the growing uterus and all my flab has been pushed up higher. It looks like a major muffin top even without pants on.

I already packed on 10 extra pounds this summer so my stomach is fat looking anyway. But this is my 2nd pregnancy and that coupled with my extra weight, I am looking more round than usual.

Oh same here! I'm just barely 5 weeks along and I'm already in leggings and maxi dresses, I look like I'm about 3-4 months along.

Most women get very bloated in their first trimester, which can may you look like you might be showing. I wore a maxi skirt and tanktop yesterday and I looked like I'm 3-4 months along. My bloating usually tapers off near the end of the 1st trimester, and then I start to really get a baby bump! I'm always noticeably pregnant by 16-20 weeks.

I feel a little jiggly, but no real bloat or bump yet.

I had some bloating which has subsided a bit. I too started taking my weekly pics to document the growth I know I "popped" around 6 months with my 1st but i'm not sure when I really started to show...i'll have to look at some pics

The bloat started to hit this past wk. I had actually lost a lb, but now I'm up 3 just from bloat :-(I don't normally show until 5mos, but this is my 3rd so from what I hear it will likely happen sooner ;D

I feel very bloated but I don't think I look pregnant at all. When I was pregnant with my DS2 I didn't tell my coworkers I was pregnant until I was already at 22 weeks, and no one had suspected anything before then! So I doubt I'll start really showing for a while.

I just started to show at 14 weeks with my first pregnancy, but I am overweight so it wasn't obvious others, just to myself. I wonder how this one will be. I'm soo incredibly bloated though, I can't wait for that to go down, I am very uncomfortable.

I'm so bloated, but just look lumpy. It's so gross. I've worked really hard in the last year to lose weight, so to be at my lowest weight, but digging out my fat pants, is kind of frustrating. Give me baby belly, not lumpy bloat!
