I'm only 8 weeks and I swear my belly is huge already!! Hard to tell though as I never really lost the blubber from the first one. When I look at my profile in the mirror I'm not sure wether to feel 'aww that's my baby' or 'urghhh that blubber is gross!' Lol

Well I puffed up loads both times until about 12 weeks and then I went down a bit. I did start showing more on my second though, I'm 23 weeks and look the same size I was at 30 weeks with my first. I think that's the same for everyone. I'm bigger all over this time too but then again I was 2 stone lighter at the start last time :/.

I was huge at 12 weeks with my first and am now 7 weeks with my second and have a distinct belly already!

My SIL said she popped out quickly with her second and thinks its to do with muscle memory- I think it might be something to do with my current ferocious appetite! grin

I'm considering releasing the the muffin top and accepting it as 'bump'! Ha!

I'm 7+4 and am finding my jeans tight, although horrifically I have found that I have already put on 7lbs so suspect it might be flab.

9 and a half weeks and I am struggling to conceal.

I didn't get maternity jeans until 22 weeks with ds but I'm in them now, 18 weeks with this one. I'm massivesad. Bump is also sitting much higher than first oneconfused

About 10 minutes after conception! It was really early the second time definitely before 12 weeks

I started showing about 9/10 weeks this time! I was palpating much later on so midwife thought I had my dates wrong! She even found a hb at 10 weeks so I was sent for a scan and was dated 2 days behind my dates (which make sense). I'm now 18 weeks and look about 7 months pg!

Nicky I found my bump was much higher much earlier as well. Strangely though I went into maternity jeans much later this time, because I think the bump went straight over the band of my normal jeans, whereas last time it was lower so more uncomfortable!

I'm 17 weeks and got the tiniest bump ever....u cant tell I'm pregnant unless I have a tight t-shirt on and no cardigan or jacket. Ive been really poorly with hypermesis so haven't been eating. Was very small with first dc too. Xx

I'm 11 weeks and just look podgy. My tummy doesn't feel any different yet, I can't feel it poking out or anything. I tend to look pregnant by the evening but by morning I look normal again so I think it's just mega-bloat. Yuk!

I 'showed' really early with both pregnancies, about 6 weeks I had a noticeable bump. I was a size 6 though so the slightest bulge was noticeable.
