  • I was about 19 weeks when I first felt the baby, and this is my first pregnancy. I have heard that you do show sooner with second pregnancies and you can ususally feel the baby sooner because you know what you are feeling for.

  • 15 weeks with my first, 12 with my second. I started showing around 24 weeks with both.

  • I felt my first start to move around 20 wks. I'm 18 wks now with our 2nd and I've been feeling it for about 3 or 4 weeks. I didn't start showing until around 20-22 wks with the first, but started showing with this one around 12-13 wks. So yes, I do believe you start showing and feeling the baby sooner with the 2nd pregnancy.
