    It's true that you show sooner with your second! I am almost 13 weeks and the exact same weight as I was with my daughter, but my belly compares to my 18 week belly with her. I came out at work at just the right time, I couldn't hide it any longer! Gained 2 lbs so far.

    I'm 15 weeks and the belly has popped here too. Told work last week when I noticed my pants were struggling to button. haha. So far no weight gain but I am overweight so hoping to keep it 25 lbs or less.

    I told my boss yesterday (I just started the job so I was terrified, but she was really happy for me). She goes "Oh, when are you going to tell everyone else? I think you should do it before you start to show". I guess I've been hiding it pretty well under my loose dresses cause I am definitely already showing!

    I'm due August 7 with my first. We are hoping for a boy on August 13 though. If he is a boy he will be named after my husband's grandfather who was born on August 13. No pressure. I've been trying to eat healthy and doing pretty well. I only want fruits, veggies and fish. I've been trying to limit my fish but it's all I want for protein. I hope I continue to eat healthy and I need to exercise again. All I've been doing is walking for 60 minutes a day 4 times a week.

    That is so similar to me and my son! I have an August 13 boy, and since that was also my great-grandfathers birthday we named him after him. My boy was also conceived and born on a Friday 13 and my mum is also a Friday 13th child. I saw my midwife on the Thursday the 12th, and she said there was absolutely no signs of me going into labour any time soon, so I did not think it was going to happen, but I went into labour that night and he was born within half an hour (around 2am). Perhaps some things are meant to be??

    Due August 7th with our first! Its a GIRL, anatomy scan today so we will double check! Dad is holding out hope that it may still be a boy :lol: . I returned to MFP to utilize it and keep my eating in check. I LOVE to eat and while I'm not overweight I would eat everything if I could. My husband will be gone for the rest of my pregnancy and the first 2 months of baby girls time, so I will be totally emotional and could see me falling off the wagon, down a mountain, and into a river.

    Hi everyone! I'm due the last day of August with my second child. Have lost 11 lbs since start of January, mostly because I've been doing a lot of spin classes, but I am slowly starting to add on weight. Have been relying on MFP and Fitbit to keep track of everything. Was trying to get in shape before I knew I was pregnant this time, so I'm pretty much trying to maintain. Gained only 25 lbs last pregnancy so aiming for that again. Have been extremely fortunate not to be too tired or queasy. Find out if I'm having a boy or girl next week!

    Welcome @lesleykc :) Well I am 22 weeks and have gained 15lbs! I started with a lowish BMI of 21 so I should gain 30lbs total probably, hopefully I'll be able to not go over! I'm starting to feel big! Belly and boobs are getting pretty huge and baby girl is kicking like crazy. How is everyone else doing?

    I'm almost 22 weeks and have just reached my start weight after losing 5lbs at the start. I was a healthy weight to start with and trying not to gain too much this time as I really struggled with my weight whilst breastfeeding last time.
