When Did You Start to Show with Twins?

Postby 2newmoms » Fri Apr 24, 2015 9:46 am

I'm currently 9+4 and although my clothes are fitting tighter - they still button! This is my first pregnancy and I'm a size 14. I just started a new job so I want to keep my pregnancy under wraps for at least another 4 weeks! I also don't want to tell my family until I am out of the first trimester. For you first time moms with twins, when did you start to show to the point that there was no way you could hide that you are pregnant. I'm currently using the excuse that I'm bloated. Since I never had a flat stomach to begin with, it's been pretty believable. Hopefully, people will still believe it in the next 4+ weeks!

Thanks!! This is so helpful!! I'm really hoping I can hide it to 13 weeks! As of today 9+5 I can still button my jeans. I'm not sure how long that's going to last! I'll have to learn how to hide the bump!!! This is me at 9 weeks! I asked my doctor on Thursday how long I have to really start showing and she said 2-3 months. I'm thinking - are you insane?! I'll be the size of a house in another 8-12 weeks!!!

Looking fab! You'll get away with another few weeks of 'layers' you'll be just in time to show off a lovely bump in summer. I was the size of a house at the end, once your telling people, learn to embrace the bump it gets big fast and for me was a shock how quickly it suddenly appeared! x

Hi 2newmoms,

I seriously started to show around 7-8 weeks, and now at 11 weeks my bump is almost impossible to hide. My Doctor told me at 10 weeks I was measuring at 14! This is my 2nd pregnancy though, which is probably why I popped so quickly! Hopefully you can hide it a little longer! I started wearing my old maternity jeans yesterday because other pants were so uncomfortable!

I started showing at 15 weeks. And couldn't fit into my jeans anymore. Good luck just a few more weeks. May be just hide it from work until your second trimester too.
