Most definitely. By 15y stomach was huge. Now at 24wks I look like I'm ready to pop.

Yes it's normal,  although every woman is different.  Has nothing do do with babies size.

You second pregnancy,  your body has already "stretched " so to speak so showing earlier is normal.  

My first I didn't show until I was 6 almost 7 months. Pre-preg I was only 115 pounds. And I'm 5'1 tall.   I didn't look preggers at all!!

my second, I started showing about 5- almost six months pre-preg weight at 135.

This pregnancy,  my third I started showing at @ 5 months. Pre preg weight 140. Even though I am 37 weeks & have not gained any weight, now @ 129 , I'm pretty much All belly. Looks weird Lol!

But yes some woman start to show with pregnancies @ 4 months! Sometimes sooner!

Oh wow I'm so nervous no one couldn't barely notice with my daughter unless I was wearing something tight, i started really showing my last two months so im so curious with this pregnancy
If it's bothering you, they do have belly bands that are safe to wear during pregnancy.  Kind of like a girdle,  but not tight.

I am bigger but is also because with your second baby' you have more pregnancy bloating. And my little one feels wayyy bigger then the first. I am 31 weeks and she has stratched me further then my last little girl.
