I got pregnant with my second when my oldest was only 6 months old, i did show earlier with the second i gained about the same amount of weight but the weight was easier to get off the first go around i still cant seem to get it all off..you would think with two and all the running around it would be easier to lose it!

I had one daughter than shortly after was pregnant again. I put on relatively the same amount of weight, mind you I was bigger to begin with because I had not yet lost all the pregnancy weight. I did lose all the weight from both pregnancies once they were over.

I had my first 2 children 12 months apart and put on the same amount with both and showed around the same time. After i gave birth to both of them i was lighter than when i went into the pregnancy... I'm pregnant again 7 months after i had my second and i'm already starting to show at only 15 weeks...

hey christina! i had my daughter in may of 2008 and then became pregnant with my son in october of 2008...they are 15 mo. apart. with my daughter i gained about 30-40 lbs. and then with my son, my 2nd pregnancy, i gained only 25-30 lbs. i think it completely depends on each pregnancy. i don't believe that i did anything differently. i am now pregnant with my third child, only about a month and a 1/2 into the pregnancy and while i'm not "showing", i can tell that i am getting thicker. my sister has already guessed that i am pregnant even though we haven't been telling people because i am normally a thin person but have been looking thicker already through the middle. i have no idea if this is any indication about how much i am going to gain with my third...but so far it's looking like i will be gaining quickly. i know after you have had kids that your uterus will stretch easier allowing you to pop out there a bit more quickly!!! as far as having your kids close together...it is difficult...but you get in such a routine that it seems easiest to just have them all close! i'm in baby mode right now and i feel like i should just keep it up...hey, they'll all be out of the house around the same time and i'll still be relatively young! ;)

I had my first son in November 2006 then got pregnant with my second son 2-3 months later (around Valentine's Day). With my first pregnancy I gained around 35 lbs and lost it all by my 6 week checkup. My son had some problems when he was an ifant and was in and out of the hospital so I started stress eating. I gained 20 lbs before I got pregnant. I gained another 35 lbs throughout that pregnancy and lost 20 lbs of it by my 6 week checkup. My problem was that my appetite never went back to normal. I had been eating for two almost 2 yrs straight. I gained everything back within 3-4 months and kept it for 1 1/2 yrs. I finally went to my family doctor for some help and have recently lost 45 lbs and am back to my 20 yr old size!! It's hard but very rewarding to have them so close. I wouldn't have it any other way! Just make sure you take care of yourself so that you can take care of your family! Good Luck!

I gained 25 lbs with my twins. Got pregnant with my son 6 months later and gained about 30-35 lbs. I have never had a single pregnancy until then but I thought it took forever to start showing "still a twin baby weight though"

I gained 50 lbs with my first son. He was 9 weeks old when I conceived our second son, I didn't gain nearly 50 lbs! After he was born, I lost about 30 lbs and have only gained 20 lbs with this pregnancy (my youngest was 9 months old when we conceived). I'm 33 weeks along and don't expect to gain too much more! Just make sure you're eating healthy!

I was hoping I wouldn't gain more than I did with my first(30lbs).But the woman at WIC today said that I'm more likely to gain more and fast this time because they're so close together. And she said it'd take me longer to drop the weight this time.But it only took me a month to lose it all last time.

I have 2 little boys and I fell pregnant with my second when my eldest was only 4 months old! (Although he WAS planned, we wanted our kids to be close in age!) But I have to say that my second was no different to my first pregnancy! I started to show at around the same time which would have been about 4 months into my pregnancies and I only put on about 10kg with each! (Which disappeared instantly after I gave birth!) But I guess that was my experience and everybody and every pregnancy is different!

I have heard that with the second child you can start to show earlier than with the first, and weight gain is different with each child.

I had twins, then got pregnant about 6 months after. I didn't know that I was pregnant until I was 5 months along, and I put on the 30 lbs that they say is "normal".
