Just wondering if I would expect to start showing a little sooner with my third pregnancy? I think I was around 16 weeks with my first 2 when I got my little pot belly. My stomach is flat-ish at the mo I'm 6+1 so still very early days. thanks x

I started wearing maternity clothes at 9 weeks with number 2. I'm about ready for them now at 7 weeks with number 3! I don't think anyone will be surprised when I tell them.

I am 9 weeks pregnant. There is no difference at all. I think by 15-16 weeks I can start showing.

I was fat from around 8 weeks, but not showing until around 18, and not showing enough that people commented until around 23.

Really showed at around 28 weeks with ds1, around 24 weeks with ds2 and just now at 21 weeks with ds3. It's very dependent on what I wear though. I'm also carrying higher this time so am only just out of my last pair of normal jeans, whilst both previous times I was out of them by 16 weeks.

I showed at 20 weeks. Probably not enough for anyone else to notice, but I could detect a little pooch.

Third (& current pregnancy) I started showing around 8/9 weeks (mainly bloat)... It became really obvious around the 12 week mark - only loose tops worn around family/friends ha..

Short time span between this and last pregnancy so didn't have time to regain muscle strength to hold it all in!

All the best smile
