This is my first pregnancy and I'm a little over 11 wks pregnant right now with twins and you really can't even tell that I'm pregnant yet. I know I am b/c i've seen with my own two eyes two the heart beats and two babies and i'm nauseous and green all the time so I know it is for real, but i guess i'm kinda in denial since I'm not really showing yet. I know I should just be happy at this point in time since I'll probably be as big as a house before I know it, but I was just wondering when any of you multiple momma's started to first show with your twins??? I know everyone is different!!! TIA

I was pretty thin when I got pregnant and someone swore to me she could tell the difference at 6 weeks. I don't know about that, but at 9 weeks I could tell the difference, and that's when I started taking belly pics. At 11 I had a clear bump with my shirt pulled up, and by 14 people were offering me seats on the subway.
As you said yourself, everyone is different, though. Don't worry, it'll happen!

Around 12-16 weeks I really started showing, but I was growing out of my pants before that. I'm a bit heavy so it took longer, I think.

quit wearing my regular clothes around 12 weeks. I was 110 lbs when I got pregnant, gained 75 through pregnancy. I don't think I gained a lot of weight at the beginning, just got a big pooch quick. By the end I was in xxl maternity and my dh's clothes.

Thanks everyone!!! All of your responses made me feel much better!!! I'm 5'5" and weigh about 120ish pre-pregnancy so I'm sure the weight will be coming here in the next few weeks since this week I will be 12wks. Thanks again for all the feedback!!!!

I am a bit overweight and started showing pretty much right away with twins. I was in maternity clothes full time before the end of my first trimester. I didn't want to be telling people so early, but there wasn't much choice. I think I started wearing maternity pants (I had some bigger tops that I could use for a while) by 6-7 weeks.

I started with needing to loose a little, but I still started showing much earlier with the twins than I did with my son. My son implanted so low in my uterus and he sat so low in my cervix for my entire pregnancy that I thought I was just carrying higher. I litterally took a picture at 12 weeks because I thought I looked huge! We found out about the twins the next week.

I don't remember for sure but I know that by 14 weeks there was no question by looking that I was pg - people were shocked at that point to find out that I was only 14 weeks along.
