  • It sounds like gas. I know you may not be farting, but trust me on this. There is no physical way to be showing that early, even with twins.

    Try Gas-X.

  • It could be gas or you could be retaining water. Try avoiding salt and drink more water. Congrats!!! =)

  • if this isnt baby number 1 and its baby number 2 or 3 or + then yeah its possible because your muscles in your uterus are used to stretching causing them to get bigger faster...but if its your first baby then it prolly is just bloating

  • even if it is number 2 or 3 tho the baby isnt even over your pelvic bone yet
    so odds are you are just bloated . you cant show a baby bump if the baby isnt even high enough to bump . most likely around 10 -12 weeks you will start to show that . i agree to cut back on salty stuff it will help keep some bloating off

  • Maybe you were fat already so your tummy looks big

  • I'd also say gas and bloating, theres no way it is baby yet. Baby is like the size of a grain of rice, maybe smaller at 5 weeks.....

  • considering how tiny the baby is at 5 weeks I would seriously doubt it's anything more than water retention/bloating...I had that at the beginning of my pregnancy. It's annoying because it does make you look like you're showing and there's really nothing you can do about it...I took Gas X and it didn't help much...
