  • This is my third and I "thickened" in the waist right away - because you've already had a child it can happen a lot sooner. Almost instantly my pants were hard to button and I was wearing my "fat jeans" ;)

  • I got big really quick with number 2. When I was 5 months people kept thinking I was 9 months. When I would correct them the next question was are you having twins. My weight went down quick.

  • i was told that with a second baby for me, that because my uterus is tilted a bit, that it would stick out more sooner than it did with my son.. with my son i didnt look pregnant til i was about 4 months... my uterus still hasnt shrunk all the way down yet.. everyone is different.
