When do you show compared to other pregnancies?

I was wondering when those of you on your second or more pregnancies started showing compared to the first?

With DS I wanted to show so badly, and this time I fear I am going to show tomorrow

If anyone has pics that would be fun too!!

Re: When do you show compared to other pregnancies?

My story is kind of crazy because I didn't even know I was pregnant the first time until I was 20 weeks...with twins no less! So sadly I don't have any photos up until then but the comparisons are sure neat! My twin pregnancy was so easy - I felt great and was active and worked up until 10 days before they were born! My second pregnancy (with one) I felt like I popped right away, had less energy, had SPD, but then again I was working and chasing toddler boys around on top of it all, lol!
Here are some pics...

24 wks w/ twins (it's a crappy pic b/c it was scanned and also I was sick as a dog then I remember...):


16 wks w/ DD (for comparison - I was about the same size then as I was at 24 wks w/ twins!):


24 wks w/ DD:


A fun photo at 24 wks...with the boys who started it all


36 wks w/ twins (wow, was I huge! From the back you couldn't even tell I was pregnant though because I was allll belly!):


36 wks w/ DD:

Re: When do you show compared to other pregnancies?

I'm 8 weeks with my 3rd and I feel like I'm already popping out a little. Not like you can tell I'm pg, but there is something there and my pants (jeans with a belt) are uncomfy when I sit down. This is my 1st pg that I haven't instantly started gaining weight everywhere else though, usually I can't (or don't) eat anything but crap in the 1st trimester because I feel so yucky and nothing else sounds good. This time I am better. So maybe it looks like it's popping out more because the rest of my body isn't packing on the pounds!

I showed at 14 weeks w/ my twins, and earlier w/ the rest of my pregnancies usually 7-9 weeks. Although two people asked at church last Sunday if I was pregnant, LOL. I was 5 weeks 3 days!

I started showing around 22 weeks with my first and around 19 with my second. I'm only 6w 4d with this one and no where near showing. I also have a tilted uterus though so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Re: When do you show compared to other pregnancies?

I was the same way with my first. I wanted to show and it seemed like it took forever. I didn't show with my first dd until I was about six months. With the twins I started showing much earlier, around four months I had a good little belly going on. With this pregnancy I was popped out by 3 months, lol...

the more pregnancies the earlier you show--weaker belly muscles

With ds1 I started showing at about 16 or 18 weeks. With ds2 I started showing around 8 weeks. I don't have a picture of ds1 on this computer, but here is a picture of ds2 at only 30 weeks.
