  • It's common for the uterus to enlarge more when it's not your first baby. It knows what to do from the last time, so as soon as the right hormones are introduces, there it is...

  • Looks pretty normal to me! Always remember too, u can't compare ur pregnancy physically or mentally to anyone elses or your next pregnancies for that matter! Each one is different, doesn't make it wrong or right! Also, you show faster with all your pregnancies that r not your first! U look good though, congrats!

  • I had gained some weight in my thighs and belly at like 11-12 weeks, but I wasnt really showing, not like you are. But Im also measuring small right now at 29 weeks. I was 125 when I got pregnant and my at my doctors appointment 2 weeks ago I weighed 154. I am extremely jealous of how tiny you look, I hope I can lose all of my baby weight after I have my little boy.

  • I think thats about normal, especially considering it's your 2nd pregnancy. I didn't show until almost 5 months with my first DS. Second time around I was about 8 weeks and had a belly the size of yours now. You just have to remember that every woman and every pregnancy is different. Alot of things factor into how big you get with each pregnancy. Things like the size of the baby, the size of your uterus, past pregnancies, whether you are carrying the baby in your abdomen or more towards your back, up towards your ribs or down towards your pelvis, etc. All in all, I think it is very normal and super adorable! Congrats momma! :)
