I heard that if its your second pregnancy you show earlier and was wondering if thats true even if you had a failed early pregancy.
I had a failed pregnancy at about 8 weeks a few years ago and am now 9 weeks pregnant and already have a belly. Im not sure if my previous pregnancy went on long enough to make me show earlier with this one. Im just concerned with how big my tummy is already! I havent gained that much weight, because Ive been really sick, yet I already dont fit into my old pants!
Whats going on??
Anyone else showing at 9 weeks???
you may be just bloated. I don't think you are showing any faster this time around, your body did not get a chance to stretch last time for it to stretch easier this time. The reason it is said that subsequent pregnancies tend to show earlier is because everything is already stretched out from the first pregnancy. I started showing very early this time around and was in maternity clothes before I started the second trimester. I would not worry about gaining yet, your uterus is not big enough yet to show on the outside, it is still inside your pelvis, that is unless you are further along then you think you are. hope this helps. good luck
I believe you show sooner with your second, third, ect because your muscles have already been stretched that far so it is easier for them to go back to that. Im not sure that 8 weeks was enough for you to fit that theory. However, I had the same problem you do. I was out of my jeans right away, and had a bubble belly that was just really bloated. I was small to begin with though. I remember my 5 year old nephew saying "If your baby is only the size of a slug, then why is your belly so big" sigh...kids.....

My second pregnancy ended in miscarriage at barely 5 weeks. I am now 17 weeks pregnant with baby #2 (3rd pregnancy) I was showing very early as well, I think by the time I was 9 weeks I was in mostly maternity clothes unless it was PJs and sweatpants etc.
