  • Second pregnancies tend to show sooner than first pregnancies. They also don't usually "drop" until you are right about to go into labor. Congrats and good luck!

  • With my 2nd I felt him move a lot sooner. Surprisingly I didn' t start showing earlier and didn't even have to buy maternity clothes. Some women start showing really just depends on the woman, each pregnancy is different.

  • I had cramping longer...I DEFINITELY showed sooner...and it seems like all of the swelling and aches and pains came earlier than with my first daughter.

  • My cramping (braxon hicks) was worst w the second and third pregnacy. NEVER had them w the first. I did not show quicker, but most do! The pressure on my pelvix was worst the last two those babies knew right where to press! LOL!
