  • no, the baby is microscopic still. You might just be bloating.

  • With later pregnancies I seemed to show much quicker. They do say every pregnancy is differnet - it also depends on your waist size.

  • Second baby shows sooner. The uterus knows what to do because of last time and starts doing it when it gets the signal from your preg hormones. Totally normal.

  • i was out of my pants at 10 wks pregnant with my second. my first was one one when i got pregnant the second time. doc said sometimes your body will just get big because it knows what it is doing the second time around. esp if you get pregnant close to your last pregnancy.
