  • I showed extremely early with my second, by 8 weeks I had to get the maternity clothes out and we had to tell our family. I figured though that I was popping out so fast because I got pregnant so fast. My first was only 4 months when I found out I was pregnant.

  • I started getting a little tummy at 6 weeks, by 12 weeks I was in maternity cloths. It's just how 2nd pregnancies go. Everything is already stretched out lol

  • I was showing at nine weeks (this is my 5th pregnancy). I also had hyperemesis, so my midwife was very curious to see how many babies I was carrying. The ultrasound at 12 weeks only showed a singleton though. It's common to show earlier in subsequent pregnancies.

  • I showed quickly with my first but but my second was so quick and I felt huge. Even my mom was like you are having twins for sure. Funny enough no twins and gained half the weight I did with my first and belly ended up being small. I guess when they say every pregnancy is different they mean it! Enjoy this time!!!!

  • You do show quicker with your second baby. You also start to notice symptoms earlier and movement earlier.
    Ultrasound is the only way to determine twins.

  • You start to show sooner with each one! Or it could be more than one. Just gonna have to wait and see.
