I was underweight for my first and started showing around 18 weeks with my 1st (9lb boy and I always measured ahead) and am now 21 weeks into my 2nd and have been showing for a while. Probably since week 12 or so? I started at my healthy weight and this baby is also measuring ahead (but definitely isn't...this baby was very planned and there is no question when he/she was conceived). ALL my gf's said they popped WAY earlier for their 2nd. And my OB says also that your body is already stretched out so you cramp more, have more aches and pains, show earlier and just generally feel more pregnant with 2nd + pregnancies. I do have to say that it's only been the last few weeks that people have really noticed I'm pregnant though. But my hubby and I could tell earlier.

so like most with my first child I woke up one day at the begening of the 6 month and I was huge.Well maybe not like most, but I went from a size 10 to a 16 over night, and kept growing from there. My second, by my 3rd month everyone thought I was 6 months along so a lot bigger a lot faster with the second. Good luck

I certainly did start showing earlier, and earlier with the 3rd the 4th and 5th, but it so long ago that I don't remember at what week exactly. I lost the weight very quickly after the third, but it took a bit longer after the 4th and fifth. Good luck with your second bundle of joy
Don't feel bad your showing sooner believe me i never worried so much i wasnt showing ..i had lost weight and i just knew there was something wrong and it was her placenta wasnt giving her all her nutrients and she was sectioned due to it coming away.
Enjoy your pregnancy and steady weight gain and a healthy bump with a active baby and a mom who is feeling well is a sign of a very healthy pregnancy so relax and enjoy.
Second not until my 6-7mth i really started showing i was tiny she was carried low down and some didnt even know i was pregnant until the saw me with my new baby girl.
My first i was 4mths when showing.I never had to wear maturity clothes on my second i wore my normal clothes to my due date.My first i grew out of my clothes at 5 mths.There's four years between my girls and my body is in even better shape now than it was before my first pregnancy i thinK the doctor gave me a tummy tuck while doing my c-section on baby number two LOL.

I'm in my 2nd pregnancy and my belly popped at 9 weeks. I'm at 14 now and in maternity clothes. There are 4 other woman I know in there 2nd pregnancy (and oddly due around the same time) who all popped between 8 and 9 weeks. I haven't gained any weight....in fact...I've lost a lot. But my doc says this is common in 2nd pregnancies.

my first i popped around 5 months and I didn't even know I was pregnant with my son until I was 7 months along and I really didn't have that much of a tummy I think I gained all of 15 lbs with him lol and around 45lbs with my daughter.

Well it really depends on 2 things. 1 how many years between, 2 what kind of shape your in when becoming preg. the closer together, and if you've not lost the 1st baby weight,will result in earlier showing or just that little pooch for a longer time.

i am 22 weeks with my second and am just starting to show now, which is exactly the same as with my son. The doctor is quite surprised as my son is only 12 months and my muscles shouldn't have gone back to their former strength yet. So i should have been showing much sooner. it would have been nice to show sooner because i felt pregnant sooner and have been able to feel kicking for some time now but haven't looked it.

i am now only 6 weeks with my third...and already showing a little round bump...i was also told that your stomach muscles are weaker with 2 or more pregnancies.. i am both excited to look pregnant already and bummed...because that means i have to buy maternity sooner..

I didn't show until 24 weeks with my first daughter, but started to show at 12 weeks with my second daughter. Your stomach muscles give easier with second and subsequent pregnancies so you show sooner (at least that what the OB/GYN told me).
