To ask when you started showing (2nd baby)?
britiole · 23/10/2018 20:04
When did you start showing with your 2nd pregnancy? When would people have known you were pregnant?
I plan to not tell anyone until 19/20 weeks but not sure if you show earlier with a second pregnancy?
I started visibly showing at around 18/19 weeks with my first.

I saw my Aunt when I was 9 weeks gone with my second and she guessed straight away but graciously didn't say anything. I was in maternity clothes by week 12 Think I was nearly 20 weeks with my first!
Allthewaves · 23/10/2018 20:07
9 weeks people at work were eyeing me. 10 weeks I was asked outright. But I make big babies

Around 8 weeks when the pupils at my school started asking me ￼
Dontfeellikeaskeleton · 23/10/2018 20:15
Honestly? About 6 weeks. It was ridiculous really.

I am 8 weeks and look about 6 months. I feel so embarrassed and it is hard to keep it a secret ￼

About 8 weeks it was pretty obvious, by 12 weeks there was no hiding it. I probably started showing at around 16 weeks with my first.
LulusMiniEgg · 23/10/2018 20:23
At 8 weeks i was in maternity jeans! No way could I have kept it a secret until 12 weeks, let alone 20!
Elmik11 · 23/10/2018 20:27
With my first I didn't start showing until 21 weeks but with my 2nd as soon as the little blue line appeared I put on about 4 stone, ok that's over reacting but it was obvious by the 12 week mark definitely!
Km06 · 23/10/2018 20:27
All 3 of mine i mananged to get 20 weeks without telling i finallt got asked at 24 weeks and they were still shocked i was so far gone but i carry small
Caprisunorange · 23/10/2018 20:29
I had horrible bloating very early on but now at 8 weeks no way could anyone tell. Like you I wanted to keep it quiet at work for a long time (Xmas ideally) but weirdly enough I’m struggling to make up lies for appointments and things and I’m being so sick and ill I’m considering telling my boss sooner rather than later
Tunnocks34 · 23/10/2018 20:30
8 weeks. I’m a size 6/8 and wth my first son I was in size 6 jeans at my 20 week scan with no bump. I was in maternity jeans by 16 weeks with my second.
Guess it was more bloating or something maybe? No idea but it was a pain in the arse!
Mesmeri · 23/10/2018 20:31
Probably by somewhere between 15 & 20 weeks it was really obvious to other people. Although I was feeling porky/outgrowing my usual clothes by 8.
I have a good friend who is currently around 25 weeks with her 3rd though, and she still looks normal. She has much better stomach muscles than me!! I am currently 27 weeks with my 4th and I am huge - people keep asking me when I'm due, thinking it must be very soon, and being amazed when I say January...
JohnLapsleyParlabane · 23/10/2018 20:32
I'm currently 17 weeks with my second and look about 6 months. Was in maternity jeans by 11 weeks.
AnyFarrahFowler · 23/10/2018 20:41
Very bloated both times and was in maternity clothing very early but clear baby bump - about 18 weeks with my first and 16 weeks with second.
OpenThatTrapDoor · 23/10/2018 20:44
To the people who know me and see me regularly it was obvious from about 9 weeks. To everyone else it was pretty obvious from about 14 weeks.
blueberrybubblegum · 23/10/2018 20:51
I’m 21 weeks today and except for a few people we’ve told, nobody else knows. I have days where I’m ridiculously bloated (like today- I feel hideous) but I haven’t got a visible bump. However I didn’t show massively with my first. I just feel like the Michelin man some days at the moment . Wish it was an obvious bump rather than this
CampariSpritz · 23/10/2018 20:57
15 weeks withy second. Much later with my first - 22/24 weeks. First was a very small girl (5 pounds 13) whereas second was an average sized boy (7 pounds 11).
Perhaps loose clothing can help you string it out. Good luck.
Juanbablo · 23/10/2018 20:58
With my second it was about 20 weeks when I started to show.
IrnBruTortie · 23/10/2018 21:00
I was still in my ore-pregnancy jeans at 22 weeks with #2. Showed at about 15 weeks with #1. I did have HG the second time around though...
