I know it's a 'how long is a piece of string' question but those with 2 or more did you start showing sooner with your 2nd? I really don't want to tell anyone before i have a scan & don't want anyone to guess. Last time I didn't show properly for quite some time. I started a supply job at 5 months pregnant & I don't think anyone believed I was actually pregnant (but then neither did I). Also how do you keep it a secret. I met with all the ladies from my school who have babies/toddlers & had to keep up the pretence of still ttc & then actually felt jealous of 1 of them who is due in June before I forgot I was lying & am actually pregnant!!

I started showing earlier, I had a definite little bump at 10 weeks.

Haha AR, I remember you posting that photo! I've just got to make it to the Easter holidays! My mum's coming in a month but as long as I have another smooth illness free pregnancy (& I remember to hide the folic acid) she shouldn't suspect anything

Yup, definitely showed earlier this time....around 9-10 weeks. Now at 14+4 I look like I did at 20 Weeks with O :O

Yep, my tummy was sticking out more than my boobs by 9 weeks, I looked very pregnant, and everyone knew. I was first asked when I was due at 13 weeks (I was looking at least 24 weeks by that point. )

Oh goody, so might not be able to hide it till Easter than!!

At 10 weeks I don't feel I'm showing, just a tiny little pot belly - all my clothes still fit comfortably too (probably partly to do with the 8lb I lost in the first few weeks) - but then I didn't need maternity clothes until about 16/17 weeks last time. I'm really hoping it I don't start showing too soon as I've got to be on stage when I'm 17/18 weeks as sweet innocent young girl and have a costume to fit into!

I could no way hide mine at the moment (nearly 15 weeks), I have shown since about 10 weeks and someone outright asked me yesterday if I was pregnant as I have a bump!! I didn't show with Molly until 18 weeks

Yes, was definitely showing by 10weeks. At the time i thought my body was going a bit bonkers because i'd been pregnant / had a miscarriage / got pregnant again immediately - before having a proper period - but having spoken to others (and going by this thread) most people were showing that early with #2

Thanks for sharing ladies x

I started showing around 17 weeks with A. I'm now 13+3 and don't think I'm showing at all really... this was me on Friday holding my dress down and I still wouldn't say I looked pregnant really, just a bit of a pot belly (and it's soft, not a hard little bump at all). However I'm over a stone lighter in this pregnancy and have been losing weight through it too, and when I gain weight it always goes to my tummy first so I think the weight's been coming OFF my tummy as I lose it.
There's definitely a baby in there I promise, I've seen it!

Well fingers crossed my stomach looks as flat as that by 13 weeks, somehow doubt it though!! x

Clever clothing is the key! I got away with it at work until I was nearly 18 weeks!
18/02/2014 at 15:04
Yes, since I've always had a thing about my podgy tummy I've got plenty of clothes that aim to hide it. I haven't told work yet either. Wanting to keep it quiet until our next team meeting next week when I'll be 14 and a half weeks. I thought about telling them earlier but decided I didn't want to make too big a deal out of it by having to gather everyone together, so I'm just going to wait until the meeting. I don't think anyone suspects at all TBH.
