Did anyone show really early with their second pregnancy?
I am 5kg heavier this time around and my stomach didn't revert to being flat, but this is ridiculous!
I can't wear any of the shapewear I normally do, it just keeps rolling down and that cuts out about half of my work wardrobe. I was hoping to get to 16 weeks before having to tell work but that won't happen now. I have a wedding to go to this week, I don't have a dress that I can wear so need to go out and buy one, but I don't want to get a maternity dress as it will be too obvious and I didn't want to announce to anyone at the wedding that I was pregnant.
I want to stay home in leggings for the next 6-8 weeks!

Yes and its even worse for the 3rd. I guess you are just all stretched from the fiest already.

Not showing as much as bloating and as everything has been previously stretched it is more relaxed.
I was in maternity wear at 12wks with my first, 8wks with second and 7wks with third.

Definitely I was bloated and felt uncomfortable in my regular clothes at that point. I think I made it to 12 weeks (possibly less) before hitting the maternity bras again.

I hadn't even thought of maternity bras! I need all the support I can get.
I think it is bloating as it is all soft, I can't even suck it in!

I was in maternity pants at about 9 wks with baby #1 and 6 wks with baby #2. I just pop out badly, mostly bloating but I always measured a few weeks ahead as well at all my OB appointments. Lucky me. You should have seen me at 42 weeks!

I popped at 8 weeks with my second, 7 even! I'm usually quite small in both height and width so it was hard to conceal this pregnancy until the 12 week mark. By the end of the pregnancy I was Gigantor haha.

Yep also showed super early but then kind of caught up to a normal looking 20 week bump.
So, too big early on, but normal for dates now!
3rd time is worse!

I never show until heaps later I'm almost 12 weeks with #4 and not a hint of a gut here.
Have you tried laying down and seeing if you can feel the fundus above the pubic bone? That would give you some indication if you are growing ahead of dates or if it's more bloating.

I popped out at 8-10wks with this bub (#2) and he was measuring ahead also. I didn't show until about 12-13wks with DD. Everything was pre-stretched and bloated this time around. I was almost panicking everytime I had to find something to wear (including bras) earlier in this pg! Now I'm looking more 'normal' for my dates lol. I'll be living in leggings also once the weather cools down here .

With our first I started showing closer to 20 weeks, but with this pregnancy, I couldnt hide the bump at 12 weeks. I noticed I started to show around 8 weeks, but to others I probably just looked like I had a big meal.
im now 23 weeks, and I look like I did at 30 weeks (or more) with #1. Its funny how your body just goes into baby mode strait away after having a bub previously.
All the best with trying to hide for the next few weeks, I feel your pain!

I'm only 6 weeks and already freaking out because my "loose" work pants are now kind of snug With dd I got to 20 weeks before breaking out the maternity clothes!
Can't beleive how much "stretching" and ligament pain I'm feeling this time around, I don't think I felt anything like this with dd until about 18 weeks.

Am only 7 weeks with #4 and already look four months pregnant. The bloating is ridiculous!! Normally I have a very flat tummy, so it's very obvious. Already wearing baggy shirts and feeling like a fake & a frump!
(FYI, didn't pop until 4 months with #1)

I was incredibly bloated in the first trimester with my second babe. I actually worried that there was twins in there. By 12 weeks the bloating went away and I didn't look pregnant again until about 16 weeks.......

I started showing at about 10 weeks with number 1 and earlier with number 2. I am only 4 weeks with number 3, but a little scared about when I will start showing.
