Alot of women say they show sooner the second time around but is this really true? Im 5'7" 180 pounds. And I just had a baby 5 months ago? HELP?

This idea terrified me too. I was showing with my son a 15wks (he's now 2) im nearly12 weeks pregnant with my 2nd now and according to my bf, the "chubba" I kept from last time has turned in an outright baby belly already. My sister reckons that when you get pregnant with you 2nd, your body just kinda goes, "WOOP! I know what to do now!" and spits a baby bump out.

I am a tiny framed person. I am 5'6" and was 125 lbs when I got pregnant with my first son. I didn't start to really show until around 6 months (and didn't even tell my dad until this point. LOL)
Now 3 years later I was about the same weight with my first pregnancy, but I am 22.5 weeks and I look larger than when my first.

Yeah, we do seem to pop out earlier with number 2... I didn't show for about 6 months with my first. I showed at 3 months with my second. This is my 3rd, and I'm only 5 weeks along, and my clothes are starting to fit really tight. Yikes!

Well my doctor told me its not the size of the baby that makes your stomach large, its your uterus growing. thanks everyone

Yeah you will show soon but it's usually bloating and your uterus because your baby in the early stages are still so small! I'm 18wks with my second and don't feel too much bigger than I did with my son. I'm tall but I'm not too large.
