  • You might. You are a tiny person so a little weight gain might show faster. Be careful what you eat though. Just cause you are pregger doesn't mean that you should eat what ever you want. You want to gain weigh, but you don't want to get over weight. Still eat health and drink lots of water.

  • maybe or maybe not it just depends im sure they will want you to gain alittle extra weight since you are starting off under weight.

  • It really depends. I was 5'4" and 105lbs and I didn't show until around five months. I gained 35lbs total all in my tummy.

  • yeah it totally depends on where your baby wants to sit. my friend and i are the same size, 130lbs and im 5'10 and shes 5'7'' and i was showing with my first son and with this new baby by 8 weeks (i know it was kinda freaky!) but my friend didnt start showing until about 5 months. her baby was sitting far back and mine are just right up front i guess.

  • my guess is probably not. your stomach muscles are probably firmly in place which will keep everything where it's supposed to for a while. i've seen a lot of very thin women with very small bellys, straight up through their 9th month.

  • yes, i was that way with my first, show sooner the thinner you usually are and yes you will grow more too, but i got back to normal fast too.
