  • Almost always, yes. Your abdominal muscles tend to be a little stretched out so you pop out faster.

  • well I'm only 10 weeks/1day with my second and people have said that I'm "rounding out already" so I suppose so...I didn't show forever with my son! I'm not a small person to begin with so for people to say that I am showing already kinda freaks me out lol! LIke I said I'm only 10 weeks! :)

  • I sure did. Was in maternity clothes fully by 3mos. It was almost 6mos with my first.

  • i showed early cuz i was still fat from the first one! but it gave me an excuse to wear big clothes. and i'm eating healthier, too, so i'm losing weight. i'm only four months along.

  • I definately did. Seems to be par for the course after you've had your first.

  • My second pregnancy I showed fast. I got asked if I was carrying twins all the time. I didn't gain that much weight, but my belly was big.
