    Default The dreaded "poochy tummy"

    So for those who have had 2 LOs, when did you start "showing" with #2? I'm about 5.5 weeks and already have a somewhat significant pooch. What gives? Why so soon?

    Hahaha... Too funny. I hate that in-between phase where you just feel fat. I think I started to get a bit of a bump with DS2 around 14 weeks maybe. Admittedly, it seems to take me a while to show and I don't pop out really far. I think I have a longish torso, so the baby can go up and down a lot, rather than straight out. Shorter women seem to pop sooner (not that I'm tall per se, like 5'6").

    I am a twin, my cousins have twins, and its on both sides of my family AND in dH's family! I fear that I may end up with multiples.. DS keeps telling me that he wants a brother AND a sister and when I try to explain he'd only get one he is very insistant that there's goingt o be both. I hope that when I get preg it isnt a child's intuition! curious to see when others started showing. I showed pretty quick with DS1.

    Oh wow!!! My DD says she wants to be a big sister but hasn't mentioned anything about multiples. A child's intuition can be powerful, for sure!! Either way, I know you would be happy with one!

    I have also heard that it skips generations.. however I dont believe that for a second. my cousin's father is an identical twin and his identical twin has identical twins! (that would be my luck) I would be happy with whatever we get.. However I dont know how I could handle being preg with more than one! (With ds I was asked over and over if i had 2 in there bc I was as big as a house!)

    I haven't yet got a bfp and my Mum asked if I was pregnant yesterday because of how my dress sat and I am so feeaking bloated. Thankfully it's hubbys side of the family where twins are prevalent, there are only 2 known sets on my side, but hubby keeps saying it's twin girls next, I told him he needs to get a better paying job then.
