Second baby bump

(2 Posts)

Currently 5 weeks pregnant with baby number 2 smile Have quite a bit of left over saggy skin on my lower tummy after DD1 (2yo) but still reckon I can already see a bump?! Had the tiniest little curve with DD1 at 12 weeks which you had to stare at to notice… Anyone else got bigger quicker with number 2? Will the bump size even out by 40 weeks? I was HUGE at 42weeks last time when DD1 was born, can’t imagine being any bigger!!

Also, how is it even possible to have a bump?! Babycenter tells me baby is the size of a poppy seed?!

Hi your current bump could be bloating. I was really bloated in the first trimester which made me panic that I was going to be huge!! I'm now 20weeks and smaller than I was when bloated at the beginning.
Also all your muscles, ligaments etc have already been stretched with your last pregnancy so you're body recognises and you will most likely be bigger than before as everything isn't so tight iykwim.
I was small with DD and DS so expecting not to be huge this time (fingers crossed!)
