I am 16 weeks pregnant at the moment and I was actually unsure if I had my dates right as I almost showed right away. I am the size I was when I was 7 months pregy with my first. I think everything is that little bit more stretchy than the first.
I too am 3 months pregnant with my second child and look around 6 months pregnant!
I panicked at the beginning thinking I may have twins (as they run in the family) but the 1st ultrasound showed only 1.
I guess if you're still holding a bit of weight fromm the 1st pregnancy, it will only add onto this one, so thankfully I'm not the only estra pregnant one around.
Enjoy and good luck!

i have two GIRLS (3&4 now), with both of them i had not a bump until about 6 months of each......... they seemed almost the same in size at the end also..........
i am now due in September with A BOY and am 25.4weeks today.................... i look like i could pop him out tomorow, i started showing with him at approx. 7-8 weeks................... and have put on a load of weight i only weigh myself at the hospital (accuracy using the same scales you know what i mean) i have gone from 48kilo to last appointment (17 may) 66 kilo!!!!!!!!!!!! and that was only half way........ so you could imagine what my bump is looking like!!!!!!!! its beautiful though..................
i think it just depends what is there for the bump to show
I have heard tho that boys and girls sit differently in your belly so maybe its that? I am not sure what we are having yet, only 8weeks at the mo' but I'm hoping its another boy, I would love for my boys to grow up together and be really good mates. Oops sorry gone off the topic a bit! Hope it all goes well for you and good luck!!
I am 33 weeks pregnant with my second bub and am having a boy... right now I am the size I was at full-term with my daughter who I gave birth to 18 months ago. I showed much earlier in this pregnancy too. I have also found that when I was pregnant with my daughter she sat really high up in my belly and with my baby boy he is sitting much lower almost craddled into my pelvis. I am hoping my boy doesn't get much bigger as I am worried I will have trouble delivering him! I gained a total of 10kg in my first pregnancy and right now in my second I have gained 12kg already and still have 7 weeks to go.
I think everybody is different and every pregnancy is different too.
Goodluck to all the expecting mums out there.
