  • Each pregnancy is different. Gained over a 100 with baby #1 and only 26lbs with baby #2 They were 4 years apart. I showed quick with the first and was 6 months along with the second before it was really noticeable that I was preggo.

  • I am 22 weeks with #2 and most people can't even tell.

  • Every woman is different. It is very common to show sooner with baby #2. as early as 5 weeks some women report. But it's how tight your core muscles are and how quickly they want to go back into that baby carrying mode. Just because you start showing sooner doesn't mean your going to end up massively bigger so don't worry :)

  • i have never really lost all the baby belly from child number one so does that matter any

  • my best friend found out she was pregnant with baby number 2 when number one was 6 months old...she was 6 weeks at that point and started showing at about 14 weeks big time

  • DD is almost 5, I'm 29 weeks pregnant, I kept a lot of what I had gained with DD on so I started this pregnancy pretty heavy. I lost 10-15lbs at the begining of pregnancy #2, but still found myself in maternity pants by 8wks.
