1 Bump

For all those tall girls out there! With your second baby when did your baby bump start to show.

Hi all I am getting married in july and I will be about 17 weeks pregnant. I was just wondering when you got your bumps with the second one. I am six feet tall... I am hoping to not tell people until after the wedding. lol I am so bad at surprises, but I can do this!

  • Im 6ft tall and my second. The baby is alot lower because those muscle arent as strong so it will stay low and I didnt start really showing untill about 4-5mths. Good luck im sure you will be fine!

  • I'm not that tall but second pregnancies do show faster than 1st pregnancies

  • A lot faster than the first time! I think I was around 5 months pregnant maybe even sooner.

  • from my experience taller moms show sooner then shorter moms with a second pregnancy.

  • With my first I was due december 17 and with this one I am due december 31 ( a new year baby!) So I know when I started showing then and it was during my 4th month. In July then I had just gained weight because I ate whatever I wanted... lol So I was just chubby and now I am eating healthy and exercising. So I hope I can pull it off. If not it will be okay too I just wanted to start telling people around 4 or 5 months. That's what we did with our first pregnancy.

  • I showed a lot sooner with my 2nd pregnancy, but I think it was because due to me still having the post baby weight of my first. My 1st was 3 months old when we conceived our 2nd...and started showing into my 2-3 month.
