Showing already?

Showing already?

After just finding out I’m pregnant with my 3rd baby, (my other 2 are 3&5) I’m already showing like I did when I was 3 months with my 1st. Assuming its not twins is this normal???

  1. With my second pregnancy I popped so early that I was all over the Internet looking to see if I might be having twins. I couldn’t believe it and it seemed to happen over night. I just had one healthy, 7.5 lb baby. My OB told me that with subsequent pregnancies, your abdominal muscles just know what to do and move out the way faster. Do twins run in your family, though?

  2. How many weeks pregnant are you exactly? While it’s definitely normal to show sooner if you’ve had a baby before because your muscles are more stretched (just like Molly said!), if you are only 6 or 8 weeks along, for example, what you’re really noticing isn’t your uterus but bloating – which can make you look much farther along than you are (and you can thank progesterone for the lovely bloat belly)! Even with twins at this early point, your uterus is well below your pubic bone and too small to see and feel.

  3. I starting showing much faster with my second pregnancy as well. I think it is normal to show sooner after your first pregnancy, but you never know….maybe it is twins. 😉

  4. I’m not an OB but I’m pretty sure you start showing the minute you even think about having a third, LOL!

  5. I felt like I was showing the minute I found out I was pregnant with my second!

  6. I also felt like I was showing with my second the moment the test was positive! I was only 5 weeks at that point…I didn’t show at all with my first until around 15-16 weeks!

  7. Oh that’s a relief! Twins don’t run in the family so I doubt it’s that, but bloating definitely makes the most sense. I find out how far I am for sure next week and I’m so curious now (and happy to know I’m normal 🙂
