  • Maybe, but every pregnancy is different, and moms tend to show earlier with each pregnancy.

    Only time will tell :)

  • I agree...time will tell. Although I am a mother of 3 and I would have to agree with you. I showed earlier, was in twice as much pain, and was 3x's as miserable than with my first. The doctor said everything was fine, just that through each pregnancy our body's tendons/ligaments/muscles (whatever the doctor said lol) stretches, rips, and pulls so its basically gone through a lot and doesnt always recover 100%...therefor causing more pain. He must have been right because I only had 1 and he's perfectly heatlhy and I am too now. :) Keep us posted though....my friend just found out she's having TRIPLETS (no fertility drugs involved...all natural!).

  • I hope that's not true! I have a photoshoot that was already scheduled before I found out and I'll be 8 weeks by then.

  • I think it's just bloating

  • If twins run in your family, if your hormone levels are higher than what they should be at 8 weeks, you may possibly be pregnant with twins.
