Just wondered? How early on in your second, or later pregnancies, did you have a definate bump ??

i am 14wks now and have a bump the same as i had a t 6mths with ds...started to get it at around 8-9wks

Agree with Nemo. certainly several weeks before I showed with ds1.

people only noticed with dd when i was about 6 months pregnant. second time around at about 4months (but dd was 7.2lbs whereas ds was 10lbs)

Was out of all my clothes by 12 weeks with DD2 and showing by 16 weeks - mind you was huge in the end. People used say hello to bump and then to me

Dawnie1, First pg didn't really get bump til 6 months. Am now on pg no 4 and got bump around 4 months.

I'm 21 weeks now and people who are strangers are starting to notice, which is nice as I don't really like the just fat look

Although I was out of most of my clothes this time about 3 months but didn't have a bump just a 'thicker' waist!!

jessicasmummy Tue 21-Jun-05 19:19:10

very early - almost before I was !!!!!

Seriously - only a few weeks, everything starts to flop!! don't worry!!

Especially if there is not much on an age gap.

Am actually showing less with this one than with ds, with ds, I got to 15 weeks and ballooned, am now 18+3 and only have a very small bump which isnt noticable under a baggy top!

zaphod Tue 21-Jun-05 22:13:10

They all varied, small bumps with first 2, no. 3 showed quickly, no. 4 I looked ready to deliver when only5 months gone, and no. 5 had a very small bump that didn't show till about 6 months.

About 6 months with DD but now 9+4 weeks and cant believe how fat i'm looking. Not a definate bump just fat. Feeling really unattractive. Not big enough to wear maternity clothes but too fat to wear my normal clothes....I look like a frump, i feel like a frump and it's hot and i'm all bothered.

As you can probably tell, i'm letting it get me down today lol.

I was out there after the first couple of months - I was really overeating though .

RoseBerry Wed 22-Jun-05 11:29:24

About 5 mins after the positive came up on the stick.

sweetkitty Wed 22-Jun-05 16:18:05

I'm 10+6 weeks with no 2 and not showing at all just got baby tummy left over from last time.

With DD I was needing maternity clothes at 18 weeks but I'm a stone lighter this time so maybe that has something to do with it I don't know. My boobs were huge at 8 weeks with DD went from 34C to 38E overnight I was shocked in Mothercare. Am still BFing DD so they haven't changed at all this time.

I hate the looking fat stage before you look pregnant as well.

20 weeks with first and second pg. 12 weeks with third, but that was twins.

ninah Wed 22-Jun-05 16:28:04

I'm with Nemo

Redhelen Wed 22-Jun-05 18:29:50

Yes - it's a amazing how quickly a bump can appear - when your body knows what to do!

I'm 28 weeks - but every one keeps asking me how many days to go! I'm fed up! No one noticed I was pregnant until 6 months with my first!!

Take it easy


tweetyfish Wed 22-Jun-05 18:32:13

When I came home after the birth of my second child, my neighbour asked me whose baby it was.... she hadn't noticed I was pregnant!

In her defence though, I am rather overweight!

Aero Wed 22-Jun-05 18:33:55

At least 7 months and people only noticed at around eight months!! Have retroverted uterus though so that mmight have had something to do with it.
