I’m Pregnant With Twins. When Will I Show?

Will I 'pop' sooner because I'm having twins?

The Bump Expert

With twice the baby and twice all the accompanying fluids and placenta growth, there’s simply more there to carry. While many moms-to-be first start to show at about 22 to 28 weeks, those with multiples will probably announce their pregnancy to the world by as early as 20 weeks.

I’m Pregnant With Twins. When Will I Show?

I started showing with my twins way before 20 weeks! Other people could tell I was pregnant by about 12-13 weeks.

I'll be 12 weeks this week and I already have a small bump, so the 20 weeks is out! I'm not a petite person but for people who know me, it's obviously a pregnant bump vs. the little bit of tummy pouch I had pre-pregnancy. I expect to have a more obvious baby bump over the next 2-4 weeks too.

I am pregnant with twins and was showing at 13 weeks! Now I'm discouraged that I just read about the 20 weeks.

I had a small bump at 4-5 weeks. We had to announce at 6 weeks, because I couldn't hide it anymore. People kept on staring at my belly.

Yeah 20 weeks is way off. By 28 weeks my doc said I'd be the size of a women at 40 weeks who is having a singleton. So how in the world would us twin moms just be starting to show at 20? At 12.5 weeks I popped and my pants suddenly didn't button. My doctor warned me by week 13 my pants wouldn't fit. He was right!

This is my first pregnancy and my twins started showing at 12 weeks, and that was when my bump was more 'baby' than just fat.

Just found out I was pregnant with twins today at 8weeks. I'm a fitness instructor/trainer and I'm already showing a little bit. People can tell there is something going on down there. We are trying to wait to at least 12 weeks before we tell others.

Truth be told, I started really showing at around 10 weeks. We knew at 5 weeks that it was twins.

I hope they mean "showing" in a sense of "being obviously pregnant while wearing clothes." From the side with my belly uncovered I was showing at around 15 weeks. Now at 21 weeks when I wear less fitted shirts I just look like I've got a bit of a gut and people don't assume I'm pregnant but it's definitely there.
