I am 11 weeks pregnant with my second child, and i feel like i look about 5 months! I have heard that it's normal to show sooner with your second pregancy, but this seems rediculous! Does anyone else feel like they're showing A LOT for being so early in their pregnancy?

I've gotten over a lot of my morning sickness this week, 13 weeks, I look down and without bending my feet are gone. I know you grow faster with each pregnancy, but wow! I think back to my first baby and I was nearly 5 months before switching to maternity clothes and with this one (fifth pregnancy, 2 miscarriages) I had to make the change at 6 weeks.

I hear that is totally normal. I only have one, but from hearing others stories in my family, they all say the same thing too. SO FUN! Good luck. :)

I'm 22wks, and it's my 3rd pregnancy...I'm barely showing. With my 2nd it was the same. The first, I was HUGE...with twins at about 12 weeks. My mom was so big she couldn't see her feet at 6 weeks, and I was totally text-book size when born.

I'm pregnant with my 3rd, and I could swear I was showing the day I found out!! I'm 5 months now, and I look like I'm about 7 months. I keep hearing that it's normal, especially with subsequent pregnancies. And also how much time was in between each one.

My first I showed at 6 months, my second I showed at 12 weeks. You're right it is ridiculous, just wait to see how big you are by Jan!

I've been told by my doctors you do show earlier with second and third and etc babies. I went from a size 6 to a 10 by four weeks. And I haven't gained any weight at all from morning sickness I just have a tummy out front. I am 15 weeks now and look like I did at 5 months with my daughter.

I'm also on my 2nd pregnancy, and definitely feel like I'm showing more than I did the first go-round! I also feel like I can feel the baby moving, I'm pretty skeptical, but I had a scare recently and was able to tell the ultrasound tech if the baby was moving or not, and it matched with the screen.. so I'm pretty sure it's NOT gas bubbles!!

I've been showing since around 8 weeks! I'm not sure if it's because I was already small to begin with or what. I've had lots of people say that I'm gonna have twins, but I have no clue. I am 12 weeks 4 days along and have gained about 6lbs.

I'm showing a little now at 13 weeks. I think it's just the baby pushing all my fat up and out. : ) I hate this because it just looks like I'm fat not pregnant!
