Of course... earlier is all relative to when you showed with the first to begin with.
This Mommy and Military Daddy are loving their son.
DS born Dec 2010 Pregnant with #2, having another !
enjoying motherhood way more than science:
married to DH (2003) mama to DD(Nov 2008) & DS (Mar 2011)
With no. 1, I didn't wear maternity clothes until late 2nd trimester, and few dared to ask my due date until my third.
With no. 2, I needed maternity clothes almost immediately, and already have had strangers come up and inquire about my belly.
For reference, I'm 5'8", 130 lbs, and only gained 10 lbs. with DD. I've only lost weight with this pregnancy, haven't gained yet, and there is still that big a difference regarding my preggo belly!
I felt like I was showing more right at the start of this pregnancy (my second) but it was all just bloat, and I didn't have to wear actual maternity clothes until mid-late second trimester again. I do think that the general rule is that you start to show sooner, especially if the pregnancies are closer together.
It's not a fact, it depends on how you carry, maybe if you are sick. And I am measuring ahead with this one, and with DD I was measure behind!
wife of 8 years to DH , mama to DD (2006) & DS (2011) (Dec. 2012) due Nov. 2013
Mama to 3 awesome girls: DD1 born 2001, DD2 born 2002, DD3 born March 2011
I'm currently 12 weeks and not showing at all. I'm a little bloated and my boobs practically need their own zip code so I've been wearing the Old Navy maternity tanks as they fit nice and long. My own tops are mostly too tight or show more cleavage than I'm comfortable with.
This time, I'm just over 13 weeks, and definitely have a noticeable bump.
I'm 5'3" and about 105 before getting pregnant, and I carry low, so not sure how pregnant I look to strangers who don't know me or my body, but to people in my life, I've been told that I look obviously pregnant to them.
#2 - I started showing around 5 months
#3 - I started showing around 5 months
#4 - I am not even 10 weeks and have a tiny beer gut.
Baby #6: 20****25****30****35**** - EDD December 17, 2010
Wife to my hubby and SAHM to two boys - DS1 (2) and DS2 (newborn). Forever missing our three angels in Heaven.
With this one I was showing by 12 weeks, noticeably pregnant to the public by 18 weeks and had a nice rounded out preggo belly by 20 weeks. It all evened out eventually and now at 37 weeks I think I actually look smaller than I did with my first because this one is carrying so much lower.
Happily unmarried to DP Parenting: DD (March '06) , DS (August '10) , and our furry kids Guiney Pig, Po the POlice, and Mrs. Puff. Loving WAHM life in the Mortgage Bizz with DP.
