So much bigger with consecutive pregnancies..


This is my second successful (so far) pregnancy. I'm approaching to 18 weeks and I am already as popped out/rounded in the belly as I was at 21-22 weeks with my first son. It's actually scaring me a little, as I feel like I am going to be super dooper huge by 40 weeks! And I wasnt exactly small in the bump with my first son!!

I'm interested/curious to hear from others if they felt they're bumps were a lot bigger second time round, or even third etc.. And how they felt towards the end - more stretch marks? Worse muscle separation? More or less the same?

Im a little bit behind you and I look about 20/21 weeks pregnant already. Its insane. I have a very small torso so I have nowhere to go but out although it took forever for me to show with DS#1. I know alot of women say you show a lot sooner because your uterus is already stretched out and remembers what to do.

Baby number 2 and I'm showing a lot earlier this time around!

I'm a big girl, size 18/20 and my last pregnancy I was size 26/28 so last time I kinda just looked chunky until about 25 weeks really when the 'B' belly disappeared and the bump took over.

This time, I'm 15 weeks and I look about 25. My tummy has really rounded off, I look massive. It's not through eating crap either as I eat the slimming world way 90% of the time still!

I dread to think what I'm going to look like in 10 weeks time!

Thanks ladies! It's comforting to know I'm not the only one!

It's winter here, so I've been wearing a lot of hoodies that don't show off the bump (not intentionally). And when people ask if I have a bump and can they see, their responses have all been "wow!!" with a wide eyed look lol.

I've actually been told I look smaller this time around, but I'm at the end (almost 37 weeks), however, I do feel like I was showing sooner when in the earlier trimesters.

I'm bigger this time round. I'm 17 weeks and look like i did at 24 weeks with my last baby.
I think it's to do with the stomach muscles already been stretched in previous pregnancies

Thanks for all the responses. It's interesting to hear everyone else experiences with it!

Funnily enough, I am recovering from the flu, which means I am only just getting my appetite back. I had a full week of forcing myself to eat a small breakfast, lunch and dinner just to make sure baby got something. But was eating nowhere near as much as I normally do. And of course now my tummy is a much similar size to my first pregnancy.
So it appears a lot of my belly size is just due to the food I eat hahaha.
