w124 2nd gear question

Hi All,

When driving in traffic sometimes I place the car in 2nd gear. After a few yards it jerks like it kicked down to 1st. It seems to stay in 1st and never gets up to 2nd. Do I have a problem or it just appears to be 1st. I'm asking since normally the car starts in 2nd when in D and it feels torquier once it's been in 2nd for a while.
