    Default 2nd time showing and hiding

    For those of you who went onto to have another pregnancy, when did you start showing the second time? And how did you go about hiding it? How long were you able to hide it for?

    I'm 9w tomorrow and showing for the last two weeks, I have only put on 1-2 kg so it's not weight and my lower belly is quite promonate etc, I'm usually someone who wears baggy clothing so when out I just put a baggy jumper on, around those who know I just wear whatever I feel comfortable in.

    Second time I didn't show until 15 weeks. First time tho I showed very early. Think it had a lot to do with how fit n healthy I was second time around.

    2nd time round I showed very early around 6weeks. When I was 9weeks we had my DS's 1st b'day so decided to wear a maxi dress that was very loose to try and hide it but everyone guessed I was and kept asking me, we ended up giving in and telling everyone. I'm now 17weeks and look like I'm about 6months.

    My first I was around 30-32 weeks before I started to look pregnant. Before that I had a bit of a pot belly that just looked like I'd gained a few kgs. With number two I got a bit of a bump at 28-30 weeks. At 37 weeks I'm no bigger than I was last time around (so not very big!! Lol)

    I am struggling with this very issue.... I am nearly 11 weeks with my second pregnancy (I had twins first time) and have been showing for the last 2-3 weeks (about the same as with my twins). I don't know what to do other than hibernate for the next 10 days until my scan. I've been wearing looser flowy shirts and a jacket and a scarf and I think that all distracts from the baby bump, or maybe I'm kidding myself!! Just pulled all my old maternity clothes out this morning in preparation.
