With DC1 I don't think I really looked pregnant until 24 weeks or so and was able to get away with my normal clothes pretty much until the 3rd tri. Can I expect a similar sitch this time round? (My weight is the same).
Thanks!

Way earlier with DC2!

Not in my experience!
I didn't show with DD1 until about 20 weeks, or obviously show until about 24 weeks. This time round with DD2 I have been in maternity clothes since maybe 8 weeks and had a bump since 13 ish weeks. I am a little slimmer than I was first time round, but not much and I have put on less weight now than at this stage last time. There is no mistaking it now, obvious bump at 22 weeks smile
Everyone is different though!
Congrats!

Well, I showed much earlier second time around. Needed different clothes by week 15/16.
My experience of others would suggest that it's quite likely you will show sooner.
But then everyone is different!

I did, I likened it to blowing up a balloon second time - no resistance grin

I was in maternity cloth from 7/8 weeks. Obvious bump at 15/16 weeks..

With first I started buying maternity cloth around 16/17 weeks and obvious bump after 25 weeks

Only a week or two earlier with my second here, around 17 weeks. I was the same size at the start of both pregnancies.

With my 1st I wore own clothes till 30weeks gone, this time I'm showing noticeably at 11 weeks and been gaining weight since 7-8 weeks

Gosh! It seems everyone is in agreement that I should probably expect to show sooner... Thanks for sharing your experiences.
