boys vs girls?

Do boys make you show faster than girls? I swear with this pregnancy, I'm only 3 months, and I feel like I did when I was 7 months pregnant with my daughter. (she didn't show hardly at all until about 7 months, and I still didn't look pregnant until I was 9 months pregnant).

Obviously I know every pregnancy is different, but I'm just curious if this more common with second pregnancies or genders?

  • You always show quicker with 2nd pregnancies because your stomach muscles are already stretched out....I swear I was showing with my 2nd before we even had sex =P FWIW, my first was a girl, 2nd boy.

  • I believe in your subsequent pregnancies your uterus is more stretchy so you show faster. Thats what ive heard. Seen it in my friends as well.

  • As the PPs said, you always show sooner with subsequent pregnancies. Your body has done it before and has a lot easier of a time expanding. Gender has nothing to do with it.

  • Yes, you normally show sooner with subsequent pregnancies but with my boys (pregnancies 1 and 2) I showed really fast. Pregnancy 3 was my girl and it took forever to show.
