When Do You Start Showing In Your Second Pregnancy
When do you typically start showing with your second pregnancy. 15w and feel like I have a little belly when I stand but when I sit it looks like fat.
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Is she or isn't she?: Be careful who you ask! Many of us who were not pregnant have been asked if we were :). So it is risky looking at someone's belly and assuming she is pregnant unless she announces it. If asking on behalf of oneself, an expectant woman might notice a fullness in the second trimester. But trying to estimate how far along is best done with ultrasound estimates of the number of weeks of gestation. ...Read more
Depends: On the body and if this is a first pregnancy or second or third. Some women show by 2 months. Others may not show "significantly" til 6 months. Tall women can not show for a while. After the first baby many women show quickly with the second child (the body remembers and everything is already a bit looser so you show quicker). Different bodies carry differently. ...Read more

It depends.: It depends on how long after intercourse you took this test. If it was 2 days, do it again in a week. If 2 weeks, and you did it before, and it was the same, it most likely means you aren't pregnant. You should be getting another period soon, which would confirm this. If you don't, you still could be not pregnant, and it could be some other reason, at which point, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

If you're worried, though, call your doctor and ask for an ultrasound, not unreasonable given your history. Good luck! ...Read more

A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more
