baby or fat?
Hey ladies,
just a quick question...this is my 3rd baby. I have heard that the more babies you have, the earlier you will begin to show with each one. Is this true? My children are all 4 or more years apart, so it's not like my uterus is still enlarged. When did y'all start to show? I know everyone is different, but I am wondering when most people start wearing maternity clothes. Thanks!

:wave: This is my 4th baby, and my 4th boy! My 1st 2 boys are 14 months apart and my 3rd and this one will be 3 weeks away from being 2 years apart( sorry if that sounds confusing :eek: ) But I am also short, 5'3, and with this one, I started to show at like 10 weeks. I didnt really show to people, I just noticed my clothes didnt fit and I was wearing loose things. I think I had to stop wearing every day clothes at about 3 months(if not earlier). And when I was 3 months ppl said I looked 6 months, now Im 5 months and ppl think Im 8. But like I said, Im short and I have a basketball under my shirt, so It's not "fat"
How far along are you?

I'm only 6 weeks. But I feel like I'm already starting to get chubby. Maybe it's psychological? :nono:

I'm having my first.

I thought I was showing at 12 weeks, but in hindsight, it was definitely weight gain, bloating, and wishful thinking. I've been taking belly pictures every couple weeks also & going back to look at them definitely proves it's weight gain.

The actual baby belly didn't start until around 17 weeks...but then it was quite tiny, and only people who knew I was pregnant recognized it as a baby belly.

I'd say at Week 22 or 23 was when people at work who didn't know I was pregnant started wondering.
