Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

When will I feel pregnant; I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant with my 3rd?

2 answers
I'm just about 6 weeks along with my third baby and I don't "feel" pregnant. I have fatigue and I had a little nausea last week but the last few days I feel "like me". Just wondering when I will "feel" pregnant and when I might start showing. I'm 5'10", 157lbs, with an athletic build. Will I show sooner than my last pregnancies and at about what week?

You might start showing sooner, but every pregnancy is different. With my third (born about two weeks ago) I didn't show at all until I was 19 weeks when my belly literally popped out overnight. I definitely started showing much earlier than that with  my first two. So you'll just have to wait and see.
It all depends on the baby. Most morning sickness starts around the 6th week so you maybe getting ready for it. I never had really bad ms with either of mine. A little bit but nothing compared to some. With my second I felt bloated early but did not really show for awhile. It is all how they are laying. Some days I was bigger then others. Also with your first it is all about the new pregnancy and the new baby.  Then with your second it is special but you are a little distracted by your other kid. And I can only guess when you have 2 that you are busy and life does not really revolve around the new baby that will soon be joining your family.
