  • I just got a belly last week! I am 22 weeks now. My boobs are just starting to get bigger too. All over, I am the same size I was when I got pregnant with my first.

  • I'm 24 weeks right now and feel like a cow. I'm not so lucky when it comes to just gaining in the belly, i gain all over. I got bigger faster this time around. It was almost like the moment i found out, i had a reason for my clothes not to fit anymore. I think i started noticing a change around 8-9 weeks.

  • I will admit I brought out all my maternity pants when I was 12 weeks, because I was bigger, but no real belly that you could see until 21 weeks.

  • you must be bloated, your baby is the size of a grape, you can't show that soon.

  • I am expecting my second baby now. The first preg. was hard.. my feet and face and everything was swollen because of water retention. After my first daughter was born about 9 months after her I got preg. again.. this one is a girl too.. I'm due at the end of March(but I think it'll be the beg of the month). This time I have a belly.. and people tell me that my tummy is out alot more with this one.. but I guess it's ok.. as long as the baby is healthy.. it's ok.

  • For most women, they show sooner with their second (and so on and so on) babies as the muscles down in your abdomen are more lax and can't hold back the growing uterus as well as they could before. :)

  • I was bloated more with my second in the beginning. I thought I was showing, but it was just bloat. I really popped around 18 weeks.....the same as with my first. And I was bigger with my second, but my second was also 2lbs heavier than my first!
