I didn't show until 4 months with my first, but I have heard you show much sooner with your second. When did you start showing with your second?

Im ok with it but I wanted to know if its normal ya know. This is my second child and people kept telling me I would show sooner but dang not this early ya know. Im happy I found this post, makes me feel alot better.

Mercedes I have what I call an "assume the position" body. It's not uncommon for women especially if they get pregnant soon after their first to show almost immediately. I am currently pregnant with our 3rd child.We tried not to announce I was expecting until 10 weeks and it was difficult for me because it was obvious and I looked like I was putting on weight even though I actually lost about 5 lbs.
I have a friend who like you got pregnant with her second around 4 months. She isn't overweight at all but at only 4 months in she looks to be full term. Another friend of mine looks full term at 10 weeks because she has had so many pregnancies and her body too "assumes the position."

It bugged me so much with my second baby that I just looked fat my mom encouraged me to buy a t-shirt she she saw a woman wearing that said "I'm not fat. I'm pregnant." That let me know other women felt/looked the same way I was feeling (I didn't get the shirt) but maybe it will help you to know are not alone in how you feel.

With my first I was 5 months almost 6 months before I was showing a lot. This time around I swear I was 2 months pregnant. At 4 months I am showing a lot haven't gained weight barley anything all in my belly and breasts. My doctor told me when you are thin you show sooner even more then second time around.

It is impossible to find out. You can get a guess on when, but that is the best you will get. Sperm can live up to 4 days, so you can actually become pregnant up to 4 days after you had sex. A woman can ovulate at different times of the month, so doctors take the most common (which is ovulating in the middle of your cycle), but some women will ovulate during their period where others may ovulate right after their period. Ovulation can be different each month also. An ultrasound is used to measure baby and look at the growth of the baby and can give you an estimate on how far along you are, but as for the exact day you became pregnant you will never know when that is. If you need more detailed information from the experts, you can read more about it on this link: http://aboutgettingpregnant.com

I've been looking for answers. Seems I'm not crazy! I showed pretty early with my first child (10-12 weeks) because I was a twig, but now I'm about 30-40 lbs heavier (healthier) three years after my boy, I had a miscarriage before at 8-9 weeks but never showed but now I'm 6 weeks and I'm already getting a defined bump. It's small and still hide able in most clothes but it's there.

With my first one I started showing at seven months! But up until seven months I just looked like I put on a little weight. I am at 6 weeks with my second one and I am not showing! I just look like I have a little pudge! But I had my first almost six years ago! But my sister is 8 1/2 weeks and she is defiantly showing! It's weird how different out pregnancies are!

I didn't show until I was 5.5 months with my daughter. But I looked small for how far I was in that entire pregnancy. Even going to the hospital to haw her I was told I looked like I was still in early 2nd trimester. Haha. But I'm only 10 weeks with #2 now but I'm not showing at all. If anything I look smaller. Everyone is different.

I had my son about 5months ago I think I was showing around 5or 6months I'm a little overweight anyways so its harder to tell, but I just found out I'm pregnant again.I've figured I'm probably about 7weeks pregnant now and I feel like I'm already showing, but I think its only because I haven't lost the weight from my previous pregnancy so all my fat is just being pushed out more :'( I just look like I'm gaining weight :(

Have a little tummy barley noticeable just looks like I gained a bit of weight my think I will be showing a lot sooner this time. My first child I wasn't really showing till 5 months and the only reason why it was that noticeable was cause how skinny the rest of my body was. 15lbs heavier before I got pregnant this time and healthy. Right now I am 3 months and showing I have a noticeable little belly.

I didn't start showing with this baby until 5 months! I'm 6 months now and hardly anybody notices that I'm pregnant. It's a little depressing really...

I had the constant bloated feeling by 8/10 weeks. I could tell I had a bump by 11 weeks, and now at 16 weeks I look as I did when I was 5 1/2 months with my first :-/ I've had the question of if its twins myself, scary thought.

My first, I didn't show till about 5-6 months. Even at 7 months, I didn't look pregnant if I wore a baggy enough sweatshirt. I'm only about 8-9 weeks along with the 2nd and I swear I'm starting to show already. I never lost all my baby weight that I wanted to. . . :-(

I started showing in form fitting clothing at 4.5 to 5 months the first time, and just very slightly sooner with this pregnancy. But I also started this pregnancy weighing about 8 lbs more than last time, so I don't think it had much to do with it being a second go.

[deleted account]

Well, with my 1st I showed at about 2 1/2 - 3 months...with this baby, I not only started showing at about 2 months...I could no longer wear my regular clothes at 2 months lol. I've lost about 15 lbs through my pregnancy & I'm 20 weeks now. So I did show a bit earlier this time around :)

Well I never really lost all my weight from the previous pregnancy but i'm around 17 weeks and showing but its not all rounded out yet like it will be. My friend who had her second one not to long after my first one looked like she was having twins and farther along then I was even though I was two months ahead of her so it changes. I've been told you always start showing sooner with the second one.

Mmmmmm, I think I started showing about 10 or 11 weeks, which means I just quit sucking my belly in....lol. I'm 21 weeks now, and the secretary at my daughters daycare told me last week she didn't even know I was pregnant. I could have kissed her!

With my son I was in maternity pants by 10 wks but not really showing until 4 months. Actually hid it at 4 months, LOL! But this time, my pants started not fitting right after about 6-8 wks and now at 15 weeks I look really chubby, its not quite round enough to be baby bump but definately can't wear my reg clothes!

I didn't start showing until about 6 months with any of them. It can vary so much on your body type, weight, and the strength of your abs.

I didn't show until almost 6 months with my first and with this one it was around the 4th month. But I am also heavier than I should be and that 20 extra pounds tends to hide the bump.
