  • YES, I found out and by the end of the week I could no longer fit my jeans I just got for Christmas that had fit me so nicely. I went to the dr not long after that and found out I was only like 6 and 1/2 weeks along!! I was MAD!!!!!

  • I wouldn't say gain weight faster, it is more like your body has been stretched out from baby #1 so you get bigger sooner. Your abs are not able to hold it in as well with the 2nd, 3rd, ect..
