I know second ones tend to show up much sooner.....either that or there is more then one in there! I think it all depends upon the way you carry. I tend to carry all out front, so at just two months or so along (Im due 6/7) Im already kind of showing. My first one I was showing at two months as well. I barely gained 20 lbs my whole pregnancy but I carried so large I looked as if I gained twice as much! ya never know.

I started showing around 4 months when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am 7 wks today and I kinda have a belly. I gained 65 lbs when I was pg with my daughter (I was a HOUSE by my 9th month) and I haven't lost any of that weight (due to depo) so I had a little pooch to begin with. But I am beginning to look pg at 7wks.

This is my second, and while the scale say's I've lost weight I'm looking huge already too. It's normal, your body just kinda says "Oh, this again" and pops out.

With my first I didn't start showing until about 5 or 6 months! However, this time.. I'm only 6 weeks along and I'm already starting to show without gaining any weight yet. It's so weird. I haven't had to buy any new clothing yet but I know that's right around the corner.

My 1st I started showing at about 4mos. This time...well, considering I already looked 4 mos pg when butter bean was conceived...I feel like I'm already showing. It looks more like a fat, flabby belly (which it is). I've already gained weight (and I'm only 7 or 8 wks). While I'd *LOVE* to chalk it up to lifting weights, I'm not that naive or hopeful (I know how often I've worked out). So, we'll see... Looking fwd to when the pooch looks like a baby & not a fat roll

My first didn't really start to show until about 4 months, and I thought this one would take longer since I have a little chub left from #1 to hide it in... but I look about 6 months already! But I've been painfully gassy... maybe just bloat??

I feel a little bigger too! I thought it was just me! My clothes still fit fine and I haven't gained any weight, but I feel my belly gettinga a bit bigger (I'm 7 1/2 weeks). I guess it must just be in my head !
