Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

I am 14 weeks and have a noticeable round pertruding belly. I looked like this at 5/6 months w/ my first.

Is it normal to show more w/ a 2nd pregnancy. My dr. did say that it's common to look larger earlier w/ a 2nd pregnancy.

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

very normal, with subsequent pregnancies, because everything is already stretched out and stretches easier next time around. I was showing at like 10-12 wks with my 2nd pg also. good luck

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

I looked the same at 20 wks prego with my first as I did at 10-12 wks with my second! Except I didn't have the saggy tummy and stretch marks the first time around! I was, and still am devistated. I pulled out my 41 wk pic with my first a couple days ago and I'm bigger now at 36wks than I was then!!! How depressing. Normal though, so I've heard and seen!

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

dh22 - I enjoyed your humor. Thanks to everyone else for their input. I thought I was eating too much. But I don't think I'm gaining like I did w/ my first. Probably b/c I'm running after the little one all day.

Well guys good luck to you all as well.

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

I too am way bigger with this one. I didn't really show a lot till I was over 24 weeks with ds and with this one I was in mat. pants at 16 weeks and started to have a noticeable tummy by 20 weeks. I am now 32 weeks and look like I did at 38 or so with ds although by the end with him I had so much fluid retention that I am not quit that big...yet!!! I also haven't gained as much...well sort of. With ds I lost 8 pounds initially and kept that off till about 22 weeks. By 28 weeks I was 20 pounds heavier than where I'd sat most of the the earlier months but by the end (41+ weeks) I'd gained over 38 pounds total. This time I've gained about 20 pounds so far but nice and slowly.

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

I cannot believe how big I am and at only 8 weeks! I got big quickly with my son, too, but not this fast. I've already gone from a size 4 or 6 to a 10! It's even in my butt and thighs and I've been very careful to keep eating healthy foods. 8 weeks seems way too soon for this.

Re: Showing early with 2nd pregnancy.

sarawithnoh - I guess alot does depend on the foods you are eating and how active you are or aren't. Haven't a little one keeps me active. I am trying to eat better also but I've been craving sweets and even some fried food occassionally.

This morning I had a huge cinnamon bun LOL - I can't do that anymore. Otherwise I'll gain too much.

With my daughter I gained 55 lbs. but alot was due to fluid retention. I am hoping to gain no more than 30 lbs. w/ this one.
