2nd baby

Do you show quicker if you already had a baby? All my friends showed WAY earlier and they said its because they already had babies.

  • Typically yes because the uterus can move into place more quickly since it's already been stretched out before.

  • I dont think so. You will show differently if its a boy or a girl. I knew I was having boys because all my pregnancies were the same. When I did have a girl it was totally different.

  • In most cases yes, but for me no.

  • I would say after a few. I was five months along with my first two pregnancies before people would ask if I was pregnant.

  • Some women, yes, some women, no. Like with everything else, every woman is different, and every pregnancy is different.
