Those who are preg. 2nd time or 3rd time?

I am 10 weeks preg and I already am getting a belly. Is it because it's my 2nd child. Honestly - I would rather show because I hate the inbetween stage when you just look like you are getting fat. If you didn't know I was preg. you would think I am gaining weight.

I can't wait to wear my maternity clothes. I loved them. Chat Icon

I started into maternity at about 10 weeks with this one.. I was in them at 8 wks with Jeremy. I still look like I am getting fat though, nothing sticking way out front.

You start showing earlier when you're pregnant with each subsequent pregnancy because your body has already been stretched & knows what it has to do..other things I read/noticed.

You will probably experience less stretching & cramping during the 1st & 2nd trimester than before

You'll probably notice flutters/kicking a lot sooner than most (for me it was 14-15 weeks for the second pregnancy).

You'll carry higher toward the end. Dropping only toward your last week or not at all.

You'll have more Braxton Hicks during the 3rd trimester

You'll have a quicker delivery.

I definitely showed earlier this time around...I think I was in maternity clothes by 13 weeks but was using Bella Bands at about 10 weeks.

I am starting to show already and I am 10 weeks too! I just popped out over the past few days- my symptoms started to get a little worse too- morning sickness, heartburn (why do I even have that already? grrr....) I have a little bump!!
