Bigger Belly the Second Pregnancy?

My belly is bigger this pregnancy.  Is that normal?  I'm not over eating or anything.  It just sticks out more than the last pregnancy.  I'm measuring on time for delivery, whereas the last pregnancy I measured 3 weeks behind.  I guess I'm just feeling huge and need some reassurance that it's normal to have a bigger belly with each pregnancy:(

My belly was a lot bigger with my second pregnancy! The first pregnancy I started showing between 5 1/2 - 6 months and this last pregnancy I started showing at like 4 months. I am pretty sure it's normal to have a bigger belly the 2nd time around.

Yes, totally normal.  With my first, I didn't show much.....even at 9 months I really could hide it under a loose t-shirt.  Not this time.  My belly is huge and I have about another 6 weeks to go.

It's because the stomach muscles are a little weaker from the previous pregnancies and stretch out easier.

It is very normal to have a bigger belly sooner with your second pregnancy. Everything has already been stretched out before so it doesnt take as long to get big. :)

I only took 1 belly picture with my DD (almost 4 years ago) but from what I recall I was much bigger with her.

Im showing earlier with this one, but I dont think Im as big as I was with Kaydence.

I would say it's definitely normal! I am almost 23 weeks and I am the same size now as I ever got with my first one! Kinda scary...

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one feeling bigger.  At least my butt is smaller than last time, lol!
