Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We had to announce sooner with #2 because I started showing sooner. We announced at 12 weeks. I started having a noticeable bump around 18 weeks, that when strangers would ask when I was due.
I felt like I started carrying faster with #2 but overall carried smaller.
Like the second sperm met egg. lol. I got a stranger comment at 8 weeks. It was depressing.
Thankfully I didn't end up as large as a house and slowed down at the end.
Around 3 months maybe a little sooner. I feel really big this time compared to my last pregnancy. I really think this baby may be coming sooner than they are telling me...I'm 19 weeks now and I look like I did when I was 30 Weeks with my first DD.

jesselayne8:18 weeks is when I had an obvious bump instead of just looking fat.
I am twelve weeks, and I finally think the ridiculous bloat has left the building. I feel like I did when I was 18-19 weeks last time. However, I got my bfp at 3 mos. pp., and my ob said that because everything hadn't firmed up (I still had a lot of loose skin in my belly) that I will more than likely show way earlier than last time.
FWIW I wear all maternity tops for comfort. I am still in regular jeans because my maternity jeans are still trying to fall off.
#2 - 12 weeks I got comments. When I compare photos now, at 29 weeks, I look at least as big as I did at 32 weeks with my first.
#1 - strangers commented at 15/16 weeks. I show early.
Two little miracles made possible by the gift of life - Be an organ donor - Always thankful
I'm looking back at pictures of me with #1 and I was JUST starting to see something at 16 weeks. Now with #2, I feel like I look WAY more pregnant now (i'll be 9 weeks on Friday) than I even did at 17 weeks with #1...
I know it's bloat, but jeez...I can only suck it in so much!
