As it says, I have noticed I have gained quite a bit of a potbelly, I have also gained 11 lbs, problem is, I am only 11 weeks pregnant! Is it posible or is it the 2nd helpings of toast?? (and any other carb on the table!!!) I am confused as in my last pregnancy I didnt really show until about 18 weeks! When did everyone else start showing 2nd time around??

I am in a similar state! I'm 15 weeks now but could feel my uterus at 8 weeks and bump suddenly popped out about 3 weeks ago, I can't believe how big it is! With ds1 I was probably 6 months before I was this big! Luckily though I've only gained 1lb so far, probably due to loss of appetite in 1st trimester.

A few people have told me this is normal in subsequent pregnancies and that it doesn't continue to grow so fast it levels off. I think it's just your muscles knowing they need to get out of the way so they just give up sooner. x

I'm 11+6 with my second, the past two weeks my stomach has blown up like a hot air balloon, my DH thinks its twins but as I have explained its due to having my second, with my DS I wasn't even showing a tiny bit until 5+months so for me I'm in shock... But due to everything already being stretched from first preg it just blows back up again... Woohoo blushconfused

Congratulations and good luck thanks

I am nearly 16 weeks but already have quite a big bump. I have only put on 3lb due to sickness and nausea but now that my appetite is returning I'm sure the weight will start piling on

I'm sure the weight gain will catch up to me! Although I'm really pleased not to have gained weight yet because I'm still carrying an extra stone from the first pregnancy! I'm just hoping the baby is feeding off the fat! I actually love having a bump though, much better than the blob that folds in 2 places when I sit down! x
