  • You show a lot sooner with the second or so forth because the muscles have already been stretched.

  • it's true - you show earlier with subsequent pregnancies... but you also show more with twins. only your dr will know for sure! of course, for me, the biggest idicator was my boobs - i had to buy a new bra before i even know i was pregnant!

  • :O Okay aggiemamacita now you are scaring me LOL... my boobs have gone up an entire size within the first few weeks of my pregnancy and have stayed there (I was already a DD.) No weight gain anywhere else other than the belly... I have yet to go to my first appointment, 2 more weeks actually, but now I am scared sh*tless... doesn't help that friends and family keep teasing me about the whole twin thing either! I am sure that that is likely not the case, but man that fear is in the back of the brain!

  • You do show alot sooner with your second child. Especially if they are close together. I'm just assuming they are close together because you are only 19. I had my 2nd child when I was 19. I thought it would be a breeze, that I had it all figured out, because I had just went through it, but it seemed that every aspect was different, even the delivery. So don't compare this pregnancy to your first one, they will probaly be very different.
