When did you all start showing. I know those who have had babies before show sooner, but I swear I am busting out already and I am only just over 6 weeks. None of my pants button and I am scared that if I am only 6 weeks and this is happening, what is going to happen at 12 weeks, or 20 weeks, or 30 weeks. Do you remember when you started to show with you multiple pregnancy?

I had a little chub when I started but I started to feel/look bloated somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks. By 10 weeks there was a bit of belly going on and by 12 to 14 weeks I couldnt hide anything. I got pretty big, but I had big babies too.

I don't have any other kids, and I started bloating up immediately after I found out I was pregnant. My husband couldn't tell for a couple of weeks, but my clothes were getting snug right away. By 12 weeks, all of my clothes were maternity (size smalls for the tops), except for a few "baby doll" non-maternity tops that passed as maternity anyway. At 35 weeks, I'm a house. I've outgrown my large maternity shirts and my husbands XL tshirts. As far as waist measurements go, I was 27 inches pre-pregnancy, now I'm....(getting tape measure)....46 inches.

Hmm, bloated from about 7-9 weeks, 10-13 looked like extra chub, and then things started rounding out.

I definitely noticed a difference by 6 weeks, but not "showing" in the sense that anyone else could tell. I was in maternity pants full time by about 10-12 weeks.
