When did you start showing with #3?

Just curious if you showed earlier with your third babies? At only 5 weeks and some days I feel like a cow, lol...maybe I felt like that before though

I'm having #2 not #3 but I'm not even 11 weeks and I swear I look 4+ months along my jeans stopped buttoning around 6 weeks! (due to tons of bloating)

Re: When did you start showing with #3?

I'm only on #2, but I was "showing" (didn't look pregnant, just pudgy) at 5 or 6 weeks, and it never went away.


At 11 weeks, some grandpa at the post office asked when our new addition would be arriving. I thought my winter coat hid my belly well, I guess not though, lol.

With DS, my waist got thicker, but I didn't have that obvious baby bump until 18-20 weeks.

Re: When did you start showing with #3?

Not exactly. I was really bloated and miserable by 5 weeks or so with #3 -- moreso than I think I was with the first two -- but I could still wear my regular clothes up until 16 weeks. I wouldn't say I was truly showing until the same time I showed before, around 20 weeks. That always surprised me since I'm very petite and don't really have anywhere for a baby to go but out.

I got HUGE at the end with #3, though. I mean freakishly enormous, "I just thought I was big with my older two" huge. I had heard you might show earlier with a third baby, but I never knew you could look like you ate your former pregnant self two months before your due date with your third.

I started showing really early with this one- like 6-7 weeks and got big fairly quickly. Then I stayed at the same size for awhile through the second trimester. Now, with 6 weeks left I'm a cow!

I've been bloated since about five weeks and I pulled out the maternity pants this week (almost 8 weeks) as the pressure from any pants on my gut was making me nauseous. I'm not much bigger at 8 weeks than I was at five though.

I never stopped showing from #2.

In all seriousness, though, probably about 10 weeks or so for #3? I was in maternity or loose dresses/skirts/tops several weeks before that, though.
