How soon will you show with your second pregnancy?

I am about 6 weeks pregnant and feel like my tummy is starting to pop a little bit (not very much- just slightly...). Is this average, or could it be a sign of possible multiples?

  • sweetie its dif with every woman. but i started to feel the same way as you are when i was six weeks. this is my second also. i am 15 weeks now and i look like i did when i was six months with my fisrt.. well maybe not that big but me belly is sticking out there. its fine that you feel as you are starting to show. im not sue about the twins thing... i am only having one :) when you go to your doc she/he will be able to tell. congrats on the new addition..

  • I'm in my second trimester, with my second child, and yes I'm much bigger then I was with my first. I showed earlier too. With my first pregnancy I only gained 32 pounds... I've already gained almost 20.... But I've always heard you get bigger with your second child.

  • Lol. With my first I started to show around 12 weeks, just a teeny tiny bump. With this one, I'm 12 weeks now and I look 5 months pregnant, lol. So yeah, I think you can expand rapidly in subsequent pregnancies, OR be carrying multiples.

  • Thanks for the reassurance- I am beginning to think I may be having twins- It is nice to know its average to show earlier. I am kind of excited to be popping already- If i'm pregnant- I want everyone to know (because its so exciting).
    Congratulations to you all:)

  • I'm 12 weeks with #4 and have a pooch for the first time this early. It was my norm to not show until 5-6 months. But this time I popped right out that was actually my first sign of pregnancy!
