    This is my second pregnancy and I began showing pretty early. I have now noticed that the top of my stomach is popping out and I am only 16 weeks along (looks like I am 20 or better) is this normal?

    Yep. Totally normal. I am carrying quite a bit differently this pregnancy. With my son I carried lower. With this little girl I am carrying a lot higher. With second pregnancies you also tend to show earlier. I went from only looking like I ate too many donuts at 14 weeks to very obvious pregnant at 15 weeks this pregnancy.
