When did you start to show for third pregnancy?

I am 8 weeks with what will be my third child (7th pregnancy) and I already have a slight bump or what appears to be a bump to me already. I know it's not baby and is most likely bloating and weight gain (Yes I have already piled on some pounds )

I tend to put on a lot of weight when pregnant, I put on 5 stone for both my children, my son weighed 9lb 13oz and my daughter was induced early as she was measuring big and weighed 8lb 8oz.

I just wondered when did everyone start showing in their pregnancies.

I'm also pregnant with my 3rd DC.

I'm 12 weeks now. I just bought a pair of maternity jeans as I have a bump - not a very big one. You'd notice a bit if I was wearing a skin tight top - or it might just look like I have some extra weight there. The jeans I normally wear are high waisted and tight and beginning to become uncomfortable.

I don't think I had any bump at 8 weeks. I was worried at that stage about not showing as I've had several miscarriages too.

Most of my clothes are tight and I had lost a bit of weight previous to falling pregnant. Yes I suppose It looks more like extra weight rather than a defined bump.

The more pregnancies you have, do you show earlier?

I'm 11 weeks with DC4 and have a bump

I haven't been able to fasten my jeans for about three weeks

It is very noticeable in a tight top

I'm currently 16 weeks with dc3 and I had a bump at around 8 weeks and was in maternity clothes by 10 weeks. My maternity, over the bump jeans were still a bit big but my usual skinnier were way too tight grin

11 weeks with DC3 - definitely have a bump and am wearing maternity jeans for comfort. I can still wear a larger size than normal but it's not comfy when I sit down.

I'm 27 weeks with my third - showing at around 11/12 weeks and into mat jeans at 14 weeks. Was actually bigger with my second - had to resort to mat clothes by 8 weeks last time!

Around 20 weeks, but I had a tiny bump with all mine despite being small build and having 8lb ers. Maybe not the norm.

9 weeks with third baby and am showing already. Although it could be just bloating, it has the obvious typical 'bump' shape. To be fair though, my tummy area hasn't been flat in about 5 years so hopefully people won't notice too much.

Exactly the same as with my first and second. In maternity jeans by 16 weeks, but not obviously pregnant until around 24 weeks. A bit thicker round the waist before then, but I'm fairly small to start with and rarely wear fitted clothes.

Needed bigger size waist by 9 weeks for comfort and loose tops as it was summer and I felt hot and bothered. In mat jeans well and truly by 14 weeks- preg was awful compared to first 2 in terms of previa and baby position etc and I was poorly with three diff infections which I think added to weight gain as I ate more as felt so drained but had to keep going to look after dc 1 and 2.... so by 6 months with dc3 I was too big I think and felt awful at end when he was 2 weeks overdue... He turned out to be 10 lbs 8 tho....similar size bump as first two dc and they were both around 8 lbs-i carried more weight all over tho with preg 3- congrats op- 3 dc is lovely.

I was in maternity clothes by 10 weeks with DC3! I had a proper 'bump' by 11/12 weeks - much earlier than with DCs 1 and 2.

I actually showed at about 9 weeks with the second, but it was 20 with the third, but I had 4 years 3 half marathons and core strength between 2 and3! Fwiw no3 is a bit smaller than the other two according to scans though..
