If you've already had one...when did you start showing w/ each child?<br><br>
I think I had to start wearing a bigger size in pants around 12 weeks-which i had some on hand. I heard u start showing earlier when u have more children. I am a bridesmaid in june and I'll be right at 9 weeks. Already went for fitting back in NC. Hope I don't get but a couple lbs bigger by then.

DDCC - Im on baby #3, pregnancy #4... if you go to my profile I have weekly belly pics so you can see about when I started showing (in your opinion of course)<br><br>
Keeping in mind, at 9 weeks you will more than likely be quite bloated but not necessarily showing... and I am 1 baby further than you with a very anteverted (tipped forward) uterus so I tend to show a bit faster/bigger than most (my family was convinced it was twins because of this and the fact that I do have an increased risk of fraternal twins, but its just one healthy little girl!)<br><br>
you can actually tell, looking at my pics, which weeks I was more bloated than others lol.

I'm not worried so much about showing...<br><br>
my question is: Will it be as painful to stretch this time?

You know I really can't remember when I started showing either time! I need to look back through my pictures, although I don't think I took as many as I should have.<br>
But right now, at 6 weeks, I am the smallest I have ever been... I think.

With my first I think I started looking pregnant about 17 weeks with my second it was 11 weeks. Granted he was also 3 pounds heavier than my daughter when he was born too. I don't know if that made a difference.<br><br>
With my second the stretching in my hips was probably as painful but came earlier more in the third month where as with my first it was the 5 month or so.<br><br>
This time I am at the 8 week mark and all of my pants that were loose before are tight and uncomfortable. I was about 6 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant with my son. Either way my pants were loose though.

I don't really care-as long as the dress buttons and i can breath-haha. Paranoid b/c I was over 8 mo pregnant as a bridesmaid last time. It was such a mess b/c they ordered the wrong type of dress, cost $100 in alterations.<br><br>
I started about 5lbs lighter than last pregnancy. 6 weeks tmrw & still lighter than before.<br><br>
I don't necessarily remember it being painful to sretch out. Maybe that's b/c I gained 35lbs in college, then lost it and then some before i ever got out of college. Maybe that's why my belly is still quite flabby. Always worth it though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
