How Soon Do You Start Showing With Your 3rd Pregnancy

I am 5 weeks and on my 3rd pregnancy. I was wondering how soon you usually start showing during your 3rd one? I know the more children you have the sooner you start showing because your muscles are all ready stretched out, but I want to know how soon that could be. With my 1st I wasn't wearing maternity clothes until about 6 1/2 months, and my second I was wearing them at 4 1/2 - 5 months. Any help would be appreciated.

I am pregnant with my third well fourth if you want to count my miscarriage, any way i was unable to wear my regular jeans at about 6 weeks, i am now 11 weeks, wearing maternity clothes looking like i am closer to 6 months pregnant! i think it depends on the persons build too!

I am pregnant with my 3rd as well. I am only 5 weeks and already feel that my pants are tight and uncomfortable. From my experience this is mostly all from bloating. I have been trying to add more fiber to my diet and drink lots of water which should help.

I am pregnant with my third and in my sixth week and my clothes are getting very tight in the stomach and the hips.....glad I'm not the only one!!

I am in my 3rd pregnancy and 7 1/2 weeks and wore maternity jeans for the first time last night - SO much better, more comfortable. Much sooner with each pregnancy. Bloating and indigestion are part of it as well.

I am going in to my 7th week on my 3rd pregnancy and I feel so fat! I feel like I look pregnant already and the baby is only as big as a bean. Bloating is definetly a factor because all my clothes are snug but still fit.

Wow! I am glad to see I'm not alone here. This is my 3rd pregnancy (4th if you count miscarriages) and I usually weigh about 128 but I am only 7weeks along and already tipping the scale at 132! I'm about 5'3" so you know 4 pounds really shows!

I am pregnant with my third, I have a three yr old and a four yr old. although I lost the baby weight my belly stayed mushy. Both babies were 9.8 lbs. so I was huge! after reading the postings on this great site I feel much better that I'm not alone on feeling fat in my 5th week, but I think alot is bloat like everyone else is saying, I thought I was crazy to feel like I was showing already!

I am pregnant with my third and I am 8 weeks. My students have begin to ask me if I'm pregnant.

Hi I don't have any other children but I'm pregnant with my first. I"m 6 wks along and I think I"ve gained 6 lbs! My stomach feels bigger, I'm carrying myself differently too. My appet_te has decreased and i'm eating healthier...What do you think is going on. My 1st dr. appt. isn't till Tuesday.

This has made me feel so much better. I only had my bfp today but my jeans are tight already. With both my previous pgs I tended to gain a few kilos early, then none til the end...just I already feel like I have gained a lot! Third time around you know how hard it is to get off!

Hello ladies, I am 7 weeks pregnant and I have lost 2 lbs??? My regular clothes still fit, but I normally have to unbotton the top botton after lunch. My Mother -n- Law swears I'm lying about being pregnant (LOL). This is my third pregnancy. I know with my second (a girl) I was wearing maternity clothes by 9 weeks. But this one is not even close.
