Sorry, I know, done to death but I'm curious smile I was probably about 18 weeks when I started to show with DC1 and I'm now 7w pregnant with DC2, is it right that you show earlier this time around? When did you start to show? fgrin

DD is only 20 months and I started PROPERLY showing at about 16 weeks. I swear my damn stomach muscles hadn't even knitted back together again! I'm now 25 weeks and look about 38... hmm

About 8 weeks! I was big with dc1, I will be humongous with dc2, sob

With DD2 I was into maternity clothes at 10 weeks!

I could tell at 15 weeks, don't think many other people noticed until about 24. Trousers were uncomfortable from about 13 weeks but not in an sort of visual way.

Oh jeez pretty quickly. Think by around 10-12 weeks it was looking pretty pregnant belly stage. I'm also 27 wks and most people think I'm a week or two off due date.

Same, namelesswonder - I'm 11w and in maternity jeans confused

My DS is only 12 months so I've not had all that much recovery time either weeblueberry fsmile I hope I do show earlier this time, it will be good to look pregnant instead of just fat fwink

Dc1 had a bump at 13wks although I think I was just bloated as I never seemed to pass that size
Dc2 hmmm about 35weeks lol
Dc3 very late again
Currently 17+3 with dc4 and not showing at all (ds3 is 16mo) and this pregnancy is still a secret lol.

People are very kind (not) to me and say im some sort of weirdo for never showing much.

Hope you get your bump soon smile

I'm 18 weeks with number 2 and just starting to show now. Especially at the end of the day when I'm bloated.

People started guessing I was pregnant at 8 weeks - I had to panic buy loose tops to stop my secret being out! By the time I was on a beach holiday at 14 weeks I had a proper little bump.

About 10 mins after conception! grin

DD1 24 weeks. Currently 10 weeks with DC2 and huge.

Ooh just seen you're the OP Daley. I don't think we've spoken before but when I was pregnant with DD I saw your name around a lot on the pregnancy boards and you were due around the same time as me. DD is 12 months and I'm 10 weeks pregnant with number 2.

DS1 started showing around 14 weeks, but I was very slim so that was always likely.

now 13 weeks with DC2 and I could see a bump from about 9 weeks! DS destroyed my stomach muscles, though, so most of my now-quite-substantial bump is poor muscle tone hmm grin

Im 18 weeks with number 2 and still not showing-as I'm constantly reminded by friends/work colleagues! First didn't show till I was 25/26 weeks so I've still got plenty of time to start showing earlier than with first. Expect its because I'm 6ft tall. There's a lot of height to hide in before they need to show their presence!
