When did you start showing in second pregnancy?

Hi im 9 weeks pregnant with my second, and just wondered if I would start to show earlier this time. I didnt really show until I was about 6 months gone the first time, and was very impatient to have a bump and not just look fat! Is it true that you show sooner as the muscles are still stretched from last time?

About 6 months with the first and then 5 months or so with the second.

15/16 wks with first but could hide it and was still mostly in non maternity clothes

10 weeks with second - but it is twins - and I can still fit in some non-maternity wear but abandoned my jeans at 17 wks in favour of maternity ones, and tops are a real mix
