I just saw the similar thread regarding showing with the first so it got me interested about what will happen with #2 (or subsequent children)

I think it was around 16 weeks for DD and around 12-13 weeks with this one. I did have a few more pounds on me this time around tho.

enjoying motherhood way more than science:

With my 2nd- 14 weeks I was showing and by 16 wks, strangers were noticing.

Now, with my 3rd, I'm 8 weeks and already showing, but I'm sure to most people it just looks like leftover pudge from my 14 month old

DS-(1996), DSD-(2001), and our miracle baby girl-(7/7/09) and Always remembering my 3 brokenheart.gif angel babies
and cautiously due May 12, 2011!

Maybe I'm imagining it, but I think I'm already showing. I saw a friend's baby 'bump' (had to really look to find it at 17weeks, lol) and decided to take a pic of mine at 6 weeks. I wasn't that big when I got pregnant and suddenly I look like I did 5-6 months along with ds.

I asked hubby if I was that big before and he said no, so I'll go with 6-8 weeks. I've already had to move to my maternity pants.

In the first tri, maybe 10 weeks. With #3, I was getting looks at questions at 7/8 weeks.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

23-24 weeks with my second and third.

With my first I had a grapefruit sized fibroid in addition to baby and showed around 4 months.

w/ my second, at 10-11 weeks, people could tell if I told them or if they already knew. By 13, it was obvious to strangers. (I voted 12-15)

and the clarity to see and stop this now
that is what i've earned (a.d.)

With my second, I was about 24 weeks. I never did have to wear maternity pants.
With this one (my third)-the day before I got the BFP-one day after my missed period.

oddly enough, I showed later for my second. With my first, I think people started asking if I was pregnant by 8 weeks

This time it was much later, I think my DH said I looked pregnant around 20 weeks

9 weeks and I couldn't hold it in any longer! Luckily we heard the heartbeat then so it was safe to tell people and enjoy maternity pants.

I'm 13 weeks today and voted 12-16 weeks. I've been in maternity for 2-3 weeks now and am obviously pg to people who know me and my normal body shape, but not to strangers just yet.

But, I'm not sure if this qualifies as #2. It is the second pg where I made it to the point of showing, but my fourth pg total and my third in the span of a year. I'm sure I wouldn't be showing so soon if not for the fact that I've spent half of the last year in the first trimester!

Mama to DS1 (12/07), DS2 (4/11), and DD (6/22/14)
Finally diagnosed with APS after 3 s (11/09, 3/10, 7/13)

I was superskinny when I got pregnant with my second, and started showing almost immediately. I worked in a nursing home, and at six weeks, families of my patients weren't even asking if I was pg, they were complaining to my supervisors about allowing a pregnant woman to lift people in and out of bed
