  • everything has already been stretched out and is a little softer so its going to expand more easily than before. and while its common for that to happen, it doesn't for everyone. having a second is not a promise that you'll get even bigger this time :)

  • BLoating too, you aren't going to show at like 5 -6 weeks. You also aren't going to have a huge solid round belly at 12 weeks, It just doesn't happen that way. You will how ever show earlier with each child. I am 10 weeks and have had this hard bump about 2 inches above my pelvic bone that me and DH can see. This is number 3 for me

  • The third time around is even worse. My doctor made me laugh when he said there had been a many a bride saved because you don't show with your first until about 20 weeks.
