I was a size 6, and yes, I’ve gained weight and have a bump, but people still say I don’t look pregnant (I’m 5.5 months). A lady told me her niece was the same and then at 7 months she popped and had a huge belly, all baby. When did you really start to show with a big belly?

  • With my first, I didn’t have a huge bump at all, it was still barely noticeable at 5-6 months. But I didn’t really pop at all. It was similar with my second, nothing much then around 7-8 months I popped. One was a son and one was a daughter, I’m told the sex of a baby affects how you show and carry. Not sure I believe that mind you

  • With my first is was after 6 months or so, and he was a big baby! It was sooner with my other 2.

  • I remember an elderly relative relating how she had to see a different Dr. when she was pregnant but not as big as others at the same stage as others were. The Dr. asked her what he could help her with. He looked at her in disbelief before he looked at her notes, then said he had no idea when she walked in. Maybe he thought she just looked “a bit fat”. Others confirmed that her “story” was correct otherwise I would have doubted it was accurate.

  • I was about 6 months along with my first when I popped, although some people still asked where my bump was! Apparently, I had very good abs back then :) keeping it all in. The second I popped a bit, but not much, before that. Abs weren’t in such great nick second time round

  • it depends on how strong your belly muscles are and your 2nd belly pops early.

  • I didn’t start to show until about 7 months but I didn’t get a big baby belly , I mean it got bigger and you could tell I was pregnant but my son was very small and in the breech position so it made my belly appear smaller.

  • With my first I was about 18 months before I started to show, with my second/third twins I started to show by 12 weeks and with my 4th I started to show about 12 weeks also, I get so many comments with my 4th though I have only got one in there but “am I having twins again”, are you sure your not having 2, wow, still 3 months to go… your so big, your so huge… With all my pregnancies I was/am all baby though.
    First was a size 10 when I found out then
    Second/third was a size 10 then went to size 12 when I found out and now with my
    fourth and am between size 12/14 when I found out :)
