I was just wondering for all you mothers out there who have had more than one baby, if, your belly got hard faster with the 2nd one. And also, has anyone had the top of their belly get hard before the bottom of the belly? I am a little worried about my sister, she is preg., but the bottom of her belly is not hard, the top, almost right under her boobs is. Any news is good news. Thanks!! Wink

Sorry i'm on my first baby but I have noticed that my middle is getting firmer.
I understand second pregnancies expand quicker than first timers.
