Your body has awesome muscle memory, so typically you do show earlier than with the first. Its like stretchy out a pair of undies or something :) the other stuff just depends on each woman, each pregnancy. 4 babies- not one came early. Never had preterm laboring either. Milk was more consistent after the first but thats kinds the stretched out undies theory, too. Only on #4 did I have labor shorter than 12 hours. He was 8 hours. One thing that got easier- pushing. After #1, they all did more sliding out with contractions than being pushed out. And no rips-no episiotomy.
I agree with the rest ladies. My first pregnancy felt like it went slow n I didn't fully start showing until after 4 months n felt baby kick way after 20 weeks. This pregnancy is flying by, I'm already 30 weeks n It feels like I just found out I was pregnant yesterday lol...I start showing around 3 months n felt movement before 20 weeks... I had a smooth delivery with my daughter n hoping n keeping my fingers cross for this delivery as well... Good luck to u ladies:-)
I started showing around 12 weeks with my second, felt movement around 14ish weeks, more bh and cramping, felt pressure around 25 weeks, ive gained way less this time around then with my first, but im alot more sore and uncomfortable.this time.around. Also hoping my.labour will be shorter i was only in labour for 6 hrs the first time.
I hope labour is faster my first was only 5 1/2 hours :-)
Labor is faster too
First 27 hrs
Let's hope fourth is like third lol
With my second I showed sooner, felt the kicks sooner, had braxton hicks sooner, labor was shorter, and breast milk came in sooner. Now I'm on my third and everything is happening sooner again.
Much faster! I showed after 8 weeks, my breasts were huge before if even confirmed the pregnancy at 4 weeks! I felt movement around 12 weeks. Pregnancy seemed to vanish as daily life was manic with a 3 year old in the house as well :-) grats on your pregnancy x
I'm 17weeks with my second and felt baby move at 15 weeks, I also have been showing since about 10 weeks where as with my first I was over 6 months before anyone could tell, so for me things are definitely happening quicker I just hope the labour is ha. Hope this helps :-)
