I was wondering if any of you second mommy bees can help me. My question is, did you feel that your stomach was harder to the touch earlier on than in your first pregnancy? With my DS my stomach was noticeably harder around 8 weeks. Not saying you could see my bump, just that if I touched my stomach I could feel a difference. I have heard that it could be felt earlier with the second, but thought I would see on here. Thank you!

@r_hink: Yes, absolutely, but, I had a bump crazy early as well.
Also, with DD I felt her kick at 22 weeks, with my 2nd pregnancy, I started feeling it around 15/16.

Definitely. With second (and third and fourth, etc…) pregnancies your uterus might seem to grow faster, since your abdominal muscles and uterus itself is still stretched from the first pregnancy. A lot of second timers show a lot sooner, feel the baby a lot sooner, and get bigger faster than first time moms.
I swear I started showing at like 6 weeks. It was crazy how fast I popped with my second! I also got much bigger, much faster, and could feel my second kicking at like 15 weeks (and could SEE him kicking at 18 weeks!).

Thank you guys for responding! I am wondering because we are TTC and I have no symptoms (I didn’t with DS either) however, my stomach is noticeably firm compared to the flab it was before, LOL. AF is supposed to arrive on Thursday, so I am going to wait til Friday to test. I don’t know why my stomach would be this way if not for this.
