    Hey! It’s my second pregnancy too and I am only 4 weeks but I have a constant bloated belly also! Withh my first I didn’t show until I was about 5 months but this time I don’t think I am going to be able to hide it very long!

    meggyo:  bahahahah  FAST!!

    I was bloated when I found out I was pregnant at around 5–ish weeks.  I thought it was PMS bloat – turns out it was pregnancy bloat.

    Went oh vacation at 10 weeks and wore a maternity swimsuit because I looked riduclous in a non-maternity tankini (like I was drinking too much- a lot too much)- so it was better to let bump round out.

    I am unlucky though when it comes to baby bumps– with both pregnancies, I never just got the small lower belly bump= my whole abdomen rounds out from just below breasts, all the way down.  I’m convinced I carry oval shaped vs bball or the like.

    I looked like I was pregnant by 6 weeks- definitely looke like I *might* have been 12-16 weeks when I was only 10 weeks.  

    The good news is– I have NOT consistently gotten super bigger…..I’m 23 weeks right now and I feel like I look on par for my body.

    Second belly usually pops out bigger and faster!  Your body is like “hey, I remember this.  I can just let go right?!”  A friend of ours at 36 looked maybe 4 months PG but me PG with the 2nd at 36 weeks looked like I had multiples in there!

    meggyo:  Just to put it in better perspective– just found out last night that my cousin is 11 weeks pregnant with her second baby.  She is the epitome of athletic– six pack abs, extrememly active, etc…..

    I have all of her maternity clothes, and she’s surprised at how her regular clothes are already feeling tight– so I’m going to give them back to her because she needs them!!  

    My first pregnancy, I delivered at 33 weeks to the day- but I never bought one piece of maternity clothing!

    Hey I’m about 5-6 weeks with my second too, due approx. May 19! When are you due?

    I am definitely feeling the bloat already and am unbuttoning my pants when I’m at home! Seriously tempted to bust out the maternity jeans!

    I’m wondering the same thing…I’m 11 weeks with my second right now and am not showing yet, but I have pretty bad morning sickness, so I am still below my normal weight. I do notice that my belly button is kind of flat already and seems like it will turn inside out any day now, despite my stomach’s still being flat. It’s weird! I have heard that you show about a month earlier with your second than you did with your first…we’ll see!

    I’m 13 weeks now with my second. Some days I think I’m showing and other days I just feel fat! At this point, I’m only able to wear pants that used to give me the gap-waist effect and maternity pants. Here’s a pic I took last week on a day I was feeling “show-y”. I want my bump!

    meggyo:  I swear I started showing with my daughter (2nd kid) as soon as I peed on the stick.

    I’m pregnant for the second time and 5 weeks along. I don’t feel like I’m showing, but I do feel the bloat.

    Since the last time I was pregnant was 11 years ago, who knows if my body will pop early or not, it’s been so long!
