Chrissy Teigen turned to Twitter for pregnancy advice—and they were the best

Chrissy Teigen announced her second pregnancy on social media last week and fans flocked to share their congratulations and excitement. But, baby number two is already turning out to be a slightly different pregnancy experience than the first time around—and that’s completely normal.


Teigen took to Twitter for some *real* advice about her body changes: “Can someone just be honest with me and tell me if it's normal to get bigger, faster with second baby? Because I am getting big, fast, and everyone's go-to is ‘it's that second baby!’ but they're lying. I know it. I can handle the truth just tell me. It's not normal is it?”

Here’s the truth mamas: Each pregnancy will vary for each woman, from morning sickness to how fast your bump grows and everything in between. “Every pregnancy is different — and there's no way to predict what your next pregnancy will be like,” says Yvonne Butler Tobah, M.D. for Mayo Clinic. Bodies are made to change for this and women’s muscle memory is smarter than you might think.

Twitter users united to let Teigen know just how normal this is.

And experts agree: “Many women feel that they show earlier during their second pregnancy. This could be because their prior pregnancy stretched their abdominal muscles,” says Butler.

Motherhood (and pregnancy) for the second time is an incredible experience, but it’s bound to be different every time. We have no doubt that husband John Legend and baby Luna will be helping this mama make it through just fine. You’ve got this, Chrissy!
