10 Basic Differences Between First And Second Pregnancies
November 21, 2018
Every pregnancy is different. Just because you've had one child doesn't mean you know exactly what to expect the second time around. The second pregnancy will likely differ in some ways from the first.
If you are expecting an addition to your family, here are 10 things you should be ready for.
1. Your baby bump will appear sooner
Since you've already had a child, your abdominal muscles are probably more stretched. This may cause you to start showing sooner than you did with your first child.
Another reason is that since your last birth, your uterus has, perhaps, not returned to its original size. As a result, your baby bump will begin to show sooner - on average, about one month sooner than your first pregnancy. This time, you may already notice it by the 14th week!
