Re: When will I show for my second pregnancy?

I started to pop out right away with this pregnancy (2nd). My husband commented when I was 10 weeks along "Wow, you are showing already". So, though others may not have been able to tell, it was noticeable to us very early.

Re: When will I show for my second pregnancy?

Well, with my first I probably started to show to others around 18ish weeks.

This time, I am almost 14 weeks and there ain't NO hidin' it!!!
I probably started to pop out around 6-8 weeks, and was in full on mat. clothes around then too!

But, if you're petite -- ya never know!

It is sort-of my fantasy to tell my mother that I'm pregnant with her first boy grandchild on Mother's Day. Of course, I don't know if it is a boy yet, I just think it is. It would be her sixth grandchild and first boy. Will I start showing before week 19 since this is my second pregnancy? Will I be able to hide it?

Thoughts? Am I crazy?
I am about the same as you... and I have a very tight stomach (when it's not full of baby )

With DS, I did not show noticeably for other people until month 7-8. Never got very big.

With this baby, it has been the same. My stomach has grown almost identically (in size and speed) to my last pregnancy.

I guess it's different for everyone... but if this is what you want to shoot for, I say go for it! At 19 weeks w/ this pregnancy, I went in for an ultrasound and before the tech put the wand on my belly, she actually asked if I was pregnant. So you might get away with it!!

Re: When will I show for my second pregnancy?

I'm quite a bit taller than you, but I'm a slender build. Here are a couple of belly shots with #4. I'm positive that I could've hid it until 20 weeks, probably more. That being said, everybody's different.

16.5 weeks

26 weeks No hiding that baby!

Re: When will I show for my second pregnancy?

yeah it really just depends on you. i am on my third, i'm just starting to show, it's like last week i popped out randomly. i can hide it though, because it's cold and i wear layers anyways to keep warm. once the warmer season comes it will be harder to hide. i'm 17 weeks along and i'm showing but if you didn't know me you'd just think i was a little pudgy, or not even anything if i wear a zip up jacket or something.

it's said that after your first your abdomen muscles are more relaxed now which is why most people show earlier than first timers. but for me, i'm going at about the same rate as my first two, maybe even showing later. and i'm small, i'm 5' tall and started at 120 pounds. so anyway, good luck hope you can make it =)
