Pregnant with 2nd baby - how early did you show?

I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my second baby and have to admit I haven't been religiously doing stomach exercises since having DS! However, I'm pretty sure my stomach is already bulging out! Could I really be showing this early on? I'm sure I haven't been eating anymore than normal so don't see how I could have just put on weight! When did others start to show with 2nd baby?

Yep! I was showing from 6 weeks! Congrats xx

Really early! About then I'd say!

Not quite that early, but I could see it before 12 weeks, and by 16 weeks people were standing up so I could sit down!

I'm 14 weeks and I can definitely see a bump, but it's a way off anyone else noticing it yet. I just look fat.

I definitely looked wider from about 11 weeks but not so's anyone would notice. I'm 16 weeks on Friday and am getting pretty close to a proper bump now, depending on what I'm wearing. Hardly showed at all for ages with DD and then suddenly popped out about 22 weeks - will be surprised if I get to 18 weeks without popping this time!

I'm 16 weeks with dc2 and started to show at about 8 weeks.
I am wearing maternity leggings from this week and hav a small but definite 'bump'.

Last time I didn't show til about 14 weeks and was 20 weeks before I was in any maternity stuff!

I was showing by 6 weeks with DD2

I was up in the loft getting my mat clothes down before my 12wk scan as none of my trousers fit, and most of my regular tops were getting a bit snug. I was showing in my eyes for a few weeks before that, but to others it would have just looked like bloating/ I'd overindulged I think. I'm 20wks now and I'm as big as I was at about 8mo with DD, although my bump with her was teeny to the point when I said to work colleagues 'only 2 weeks until I'm off!' they asked where I was going... I don't think I'm going to get away as lightly this time!

I was offered a seat when I was 9 weeks with DC2 shock

I'm 11 weeks with no 2 and definitely have a small bump to the point where in certain tops I think it is noticeable and since we've not told everyone yet it's a bit tricky! I've been very bloated from about 8 weeks but mainly in the evenings and I could tell it was bloating not an actual bump. It now seems much more bump like.

Yep about 7-8 weeks.

OhShutUpThomas Wed 10-Feb-16 09:15:39

Not until 24 weeks for me! 11 weeks with number 3 now and nothing to show again!

mrsmugoo Wed 10-Feb-16 09:22:17

Earlier than the first - about 12 as opposed to 16 weeks.

NTM12 Wed 10-Feb-16 18:45:45

Thanks for your responses - I feel reassured that this is normal for some! I don't actually think others would notice right now they'd probably think I'm just a bit lardy - but it probably won't be long!

I was in maternity jeggings by 12 weeks. Im 18 weeks now and most days I do look very pregnant…some days not so much smile

TattieHowkerz Wed 10-Feb-16 20:45:44

I'm 12 weeks with DC2 and am definitely showing much more than I did first time round. I can just about do up my trousers but they are uncomfy, had to sneakily undo them in the middle of a meeting on Monday! I'm relying on huge cardigans as not ready to tell work.
