When did you start showing with 2nd pregnancy?

Just what it says.

I'm pregnant with #2 and I'm ready to be showing! It's still early...but just curious about others

I popped with my first at ten weeks (had to buy maternity pants and all!), twenty/ twenty something weeks with my second and fourteen/ sixteenish weeks with my current pregnancy.

Maternity pants at 15 ish weeks. But people still don't ask me if I am pregnant. It's annoying. I just look big. I'm 25 weeks now.

Not until 5 months, but at 5 mos I just looked like I had a beer gut. At 6, I could suck it in. At 7, I definitely looked pregnant.

I'm really long waisted so there's lots of room to hide!

With my first, people told me I didn't even look pregnant at 7 months.

With my second it was a little sooner...probably around 18 weeks...but that was if I was wearing a form-fitting shirt. I could still hide it with a loose t-shirt. With my first I could have hidden it until probably 25 weeks.

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

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.

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

By 8 wks w/ my first 2 pregnancies, I needed maternity pants. By about 13/14 wks w/my 3rd pregnancy. And this time, I didn't really need maternity until about 18/20 wks.

My biggest baby yet was my second, and I was noticeably pregnant with him by 4 mos or so. Actually at 6mos, a lady stopped me in WM to ask when I was due. When I told her my due date was 4 mos away, she gasped and said, "Oh, I KNEW you were having twins when I saw you!" I said, "Uh, no there's only one baby in there." And she looked at me, embarrassed, said, "Oh my LORD Jeus! You are HUGE. You poor thing. I'll pray for you." And walked away.

0_o

I was seriously massive with my 2nd pregnancy. For the last 10-12 wks, I literally couldn't put my legs together b/c my belly was so big. I always looked like I'd been riding a horse for 3 hours and just got off. I had to sling my legs out sideways to walk. I am not even kidding. I've never been so huge in my life.

Anyway, I know it's said over and over, but it's really true - no two pregnancies/babies are exactly alike!

Same here! I just look like I'm getting fat until 7 months or so :/
Second I started wearing maternity pants around 5 months.
