I just wanted to share this little observation. I keep saying to people that I feel like I'm as big (or bigger) than when I was when I was 6 months pregnant with Caleb, and today I finally looked at my old belly pics...and yeah. I'm almost positive that my weight was almost exact to what I weigh today (I think I was actually a couple pounds heavier with Caleb at 6 months), so there's no difference in that aspect.

Here is me TODAY at 17 weeks:

And here is me at 24 weeks with Caleb.

I asked the midwife why I was popping so much quicker this time around, and she said that since I was pregnant not that long ago with Caleb (he was about 9.5 months old when we conceived), my uterus knows what to do even faster. I guess that makes sense. I know we have a few other mamas with young babies---are you noticing that you're popping faster? I just hope I don't get a ton of new stretchmarks. Goodness knows Caleb gave me enough of those!

Your belly is so cute! I still mostly look fat. I have gotten bigger faster this time though. I think right now I look about how I did at 17-18 weeks with my DD. But at that time I don't think I looked pregnant yet...just a little fat. lol

Such a cute bump! I'm noticing I'm as big now as I was with DS at around 6 months. He's 19 months next week. I've been told you pop faster after the first one.

you look great! I have been surprized that I am not popping quicker this time. I actually feel like I am smaller now than I was with DS at 18 weeks.

You look great!! I feel like I'm carrying differently than I was with Colin.. I can't explain it.. I feel BIG, but not overly huge, so that's ok with me! I'm about the size now as I was around 20-21 weeks with Colin!
