  • Yes, it is too early to be showing. You are probably bloated right now and retaining water.

  • well everyone is different, not sure how someone can say whether or not its too early. My sister is 10 weeks pregnant with her second, and she has been showing since about 7 weeks, which seemed crazy early for us, but she was.

  • Alot of women get constipated and bloated in the first few weeks of pregnancy, also you could be retaining water.

  • Anon, at 5 weeks the fetus is the size of a sesame seed. At 7 weeks, the size of a grape. Yes, it's possible that the OP and your sister may have been bloated or may have gained a few lbs, but to actually be showing, it's not possible, your uterus is still deep in your pelvic area that that point.

  • Actually, how long ago did you have your first child? And did you have the first natural or c-section? I got pregnant with my third son when my first was only 15 months old. I was showing almost right away. My doctor said that wasn't unusual when you have them close together, and also when you have c-sections.
