For those of you with at least one child already, do you feel like your symptoms appear sooner the second or third time around...??

You do tend to start showing a little earleir with subsequent babies as your uterus has a 'memory' weird I know basically what that means is it stretches easier because it's done it before lol.
Congrats on your BFP :)

Yes, with symptoms is like you already know what to look for and you know that you are not feeling right. And yes, you start showing sooner with your second..:)

This is my 5th pregnancy and I actually took a test at 4 weeks because everyone I knew kept telling me to! I was showing already!! Thanks to the beband from Target, I'm able to stay in my size 4's unbuttoned right now (but I'm still only wearing sweats because they're more comfortable and I'm a SAHM and can get away with it! lol). So yeah, I'm learning things happens sooner and sooner with each one. We joke that if we get pregnant again, I'll show before we even conceive ;o)

its been so long for me i don't even know. I got M/S with DD14 at 6 wks. I have had nausea here and there but nothing all day (crossing fingers --6 wks wednesday!) I am overweight already but my belly is bloated. I am still in my jeans but by end of day have to unbutton them lol...i felt the early symptoms more so this time around (cramping of lower abdomen- didn't have that with first pregnancy)..I am older also so I am sure i won't be able tolerate everything so well although i am not working full time like i did back then.

This is my 3rd pregnancy and I've already started wearing maternity clothes, because my normal clothes are too tight. I tested on day 24, but my cycles are only 24-26 days long since the surgery for my ectopic this summer. So I've known for a little more than 2 weeks now, and my khaki pants for work won't button anymore. I only have one pair of maternity pants, and thats only because my inlaws bought them for me this summer (because I was already uncomfortable, and they were being nice).
