This is my 3rd baby... I started showing around 12wks. Not enough that people thought I was preggo, just fat lol. The 'Baby bump' showed up closer to 15wks. Whereas with both my first 2, I didn't show or have to go maternity until 4-5 months x

I bought maternity shorts at 7 weeks....I showed fast... (all water weight of course, but obviously not myself... some people thought fat, some thought pregnant... for comfort, I bought maternity shorts, since mine didn't fit much... I have gained 24lbs since finding out I was pregnant.

I found out I was pregnant with baby number 3 at about 4 weeks. the day before my missed period. By week 5 I had morning sickness and at 6 week round ligament pain kicked in. I was in maternity cloths at 8-9 weeks.



The more babies the faster you show.

I'm almost 20 weeks pregnant with my fourth and still wear my non-maternity clothing. Only 2 pairs of non maternity jeans still comfortably fit an zip up to the end though, the rest do not. For the first time this week, my waist feels thick, but have not gained weight since I started monitoring my weight at 6 weeks. Only my husband and I see the difference in my waist (that bulge in the abdominal area), my family and colleagues havn't been able to tell I'm preggers, and I'm not intending to tell until I'm obviously pregnant. With all my pregnancies, I start showing around 26-28 weeks, even though I think I might start showing sooner with this one.

I'm 21 weeks with my 3rd baby and just now bought maternity jeans. I'm not going to lie though, I could have used them a couple weeks ago. Started showing around 13 weeks but def needed stretchy pants at like 16 weeks lol

14 weeks was the point of no return for this one. With my first I never wore any maternity clothing, everything I had fit all the way to the end. With my second I was 24 weeks when I finally had to buy maternity jeans. This time I did the rubber band trick until 14 weeks.
