  • You probably aren't showing, unless you are super tiny and skinny and the baby has nowhere else to go. I thought I was showing at 11 weeks too but it turns out pregnancy gives you really bad gas. And it makes you bloated. I bought some gas-x and take it once a day with my prenatals and dinner. Then when I wake up in the morning, no more belly. It also helps to excercise just a tiny bit, get your bowels moving so you don't get gas bubbles stuck in you all day. I'm 20 too and almost 14 weeks. This is my first pregnancy as well but I have a lot of love and support. If you don't have it, go buy "What to expect when you're expecting" It is the pregnancy bible! It will help with EVERY question you have.

  • It's different for everyone. I started showing when I was only 8 weeks along. Of course, with this pregnancy, I have been eating non-stop. The weight gain in my belly could've been mostly fat. But, yes, it's possible. Don't let people fool you by swearing that this can't happen.

  • Usually you really start to show around 20 weeks, that's usually when you actually look prego and not just bloated. But when I was 12 weeks I had a little tiny bulge. No one could really see it unless they knew me. I was always thin and when I was 12 weeks instead of my belly being completely flat, it came out a little bit right over my pubic bone. If you have something like that, it's pretty normal. Around 12 weeks is when the uterus comes up above the pubic bone(I think). Good luck!

  • i am now 16 weeks. but i was showing early too. this is my first i was getting scared and everyone was like your further along then you think but my doctor said im not further along . i only weighed 110 before i was pregnant. and i feel like a balloon already and i have a long way to go. i would say for some people it is normal and if you are thin. then yes. it shows quicker on thinner people :)
