  • 6 weeks you are not showing. the baby isnt even big enough to see with a normal ultra sound yet and is still behind your pelvic bone. most likely depending on your body type maybe around 12 weeks or so . the pooching you have most likely is from bloating .

  • No you should not be showing yet it is WAY to soon. Maybe you just are more relaxed about this one and that is why your tummy is pooched out. With both of my girls I did not show until 5-6 mths.

  • I just keep reading that women show really early with their third. A bunch of moms I talked to at the doctor said they showed about 7-8 weeks!

  • that isnt possible the baby is still behind the pelvic bone .. bloating could be that cause . im on my 5th pregnancy 3 were miscarriage and i wasnt that big to begin with and i still didnt show til about 13 weeks . i noticed it at about 13 weeks my husband and others noticed around 18 weeks .

  • Yeah. I am smaller. I guess it really is just the bloating. i cant wait to get past this first trimester. ugh :(

  • Ok, say what you want, But I am a big girl and I was showing already a bit at 10 weeks this time (third) and by 12 weeks it was apparent I was pregnant. My sister even saw a picture and didn't believe it until she saw me in person.

    I am now 16 weeks and happily carrying around a big enough belly already that it's obvious. :)

    Maybe it is or was bloating, but honestly, it's kind of irritating to have it said. kwim?

  • I am on my third- by 6 weeks I was losing weight but my pants dug in- sweats were my friend.
    by 12 weeks I started pooching- did not gain weight back until about 15 weeks.
    Now I am over my starting weight at 23 weeks.
    I was told by one of my students that I just ballooned out over night... I was looking alil chubby, then all of a sudden I was looking a lil preg.

    we are all different.
