I'm 19 weeks and I'm only showing sometimes and to people who know me. 2nd baby.

With the first, I didn't show until about the same time - a little later.

With my first (girl) I showed around 12 weeks. With my second (boy) I started to show around 18 weeks. I was small with him the whole pregnancy, at 41 weeks I only looks like I was 32 weeks along. This pregnancy I started to get a small belly at 7 weeks...mostly bloat. I'm 9 weeks now and can still wear normal pants but prefer maternity pants.

I've heard that you show more with each pregnancy..but I also think a lot had to do with gender, the way the babe is laying and also if your active..although I'm active and I'm showing fast this time haha

Re: When did you start showing with 2nd pregnancy?

Early. Pants didn't fit around 7w and I was in full maternity at 9w. There was only a little over a year between my DS's pregnancy and DD's so that might have something to do with it. I popped later this time (#3) and have only needed maternity for the past week or so. (pants were uncomfortable before though)

10-11 weeks. People couldn't officially tell but I was bloated and needed maternity pants. By 12 weeks, there was no question about it if I wore an empire waisted shirt.

I started getting a tummy at 11 weeks, but I'm almost 15 now and haven't really popped. Nothing obvious enough for acquaintances to notice yet. Close friends and family can tell.

I don't consider bloat as "showing," although I know some will argue since it's pregnancy induced. In that case, I was heavily bloated to the point of having a very noticable bump by 7 weeks. Of course baby was still well into my pelvis at that point so it wasn't baby I was showing.

I usually start to fill out and look pregnant as opposed to bloated around 15 weeks.
Yep, same here! I was terribly bloated at around 7-8 weeks. My belly really popped at about 15 weeks and now at 19 weeks I'm the same size as I was with my first child at around 7 months....I'm quite large

I could see it at around 8 weeks, others started to notice at around 13. Now at 14 weeks I'm about the same size I was at 20 weeks with the first.

I always get asked well before the first trimester is over. Obviously, it isn't all baby, but I have a short torso and small chest, so everything pops out once there is anything extra. I get a bump around 9 weeks (even with my first) and start getting whispered about or asked anywhere from 10-12 weeks. I didn't even make it out of the first tri with my first before acquaintances were asking.

This time I had some left over pudge from the previous pregnancies, so I really just feel fat, but again, people started asking around 10 weeks. One teacher at my son's MDO refrained from asking until I said something at 19weeks. She said she had been wondering for quite a while, but wasn't allowed to ask. Longest anyone has ever waited to ask me, lol.
