Moms of Many..do you show early when pregnant??

So I am preggo with #7 ( 8th pregnancy due to loss) and I am showing big time already. I am 10 wks and look like I am 5-6 months pregnant. My husband jokes and tells me I must be having triplets...LOL ( don't worry I slugged him). I know its normal after alot of kids for your body to look pregnant quickly, I've just never experienced it before. If you must know what I look like here is a link to my DDC belly shot...LOL

I have my first midwife appointment next week and I asked her to see if she thought I should go for a earlier ultrasound then my gender dating..so we'll see if there might be twins or not.

I showed early with my last two, but not at 10 weeks. More like 12 weeks. With my first I didn't show until 6 months (seriously!) and with my second I started showing at 16 weeks.

Nope..I don't have any twins. I know every pregnancy is different, but if it was twins it would explain a lot!.Early positive pregnancy test ( 8dpo). Crazy morning sickness like I have never gotten, and getting big quickly. Of course these could just be normal singleton symptoms too..I just have had this crazy feeling that I haven't had with my others. So I will keep you updated. Thanks!

I've had 4 in 4 years so I never STOP looking like I'm pregnant. But yes, I pop out quicker each time.

I just found out I am pregnant with number 6 and was wondering the same thing. I already look pregnant, I know it's just bloating and not baby but geez I'm only 5 weeks and look like at least 4 months along. My belly is past my boobs and I have a D cup!!!

I hardly showed before 4 months... till the last one. By 5 1/2 weeks I had to switch to maternity pants/yoga pants because I could not even come close to zipping my reg. jeans up. I was sure it was twins for a looong time (I never had morning sickness till him and it was all day, every day for 3 months). Turned out it was just one feisty little boy. Shows you how much each baby is different and how having different fathers influences it.

Yes......I know what you mean. I have 5. At about 6 weeks I had my prego pouch nicely rounded. At first I thought it was just me until the kids started noticing it as well. (and they're always so..... honest). But the outcome was great birth a lovely, healthy baby girl!

Yep, since I already look 5 months pregnant all the time, when I get pregnant I pop right out and have to wear maternity clothes at like 10-12 weeks.
