Did you show more with your 2nd kid?

I feel like it took forever to start showing with my second child. With in the last couple weeks I feel like I've gotten HUGE. I didn't lose all the baby weight from my first pregnancy, but this time I'm eating a little better so I have only gained 6 pounds and I'm 24 weeks. I'm feeling so much bigger than I was before. Both are boys. Did you get better with your second child?

  • Oh yes. I'm 21 weeks right now and I'm soooo HUGE! I'm still down 3 lbs too. I feel like I did when I was 34 weeks with my son!

  • I started showing a lot sooner with my second and third than I did with my first. With my first, I didn't even tell anyone at work that I was pg until I was closing in on 20 weeks. But by the time I had my third, I was noticeably pg by about 12 weeks. I didn't end up bigger at the end though- I just showed a lot sooner. I actually gained the most weight with my first!

  • Good to know Freela! I'm hoping I'll keep my weight in check until the end. I'm just scared I'm this big already!!!

  • I showed earlier, but by the middle of the pregnancy I think it was about the same.

  • I looked huge with my second pregnancy---maybe because my muscles were still stretched out from the first one. I was wearing maternity clothes at three months. By 7 months everyone thought I was ready to go into labor. LOL. But I didn't gain much weight and I was wearing my regular clothes 2 weeks after delivery. It was all out in front which is why I looked so big.
