  • Everybody is different. I started showing in my 6th week. I had to buy maternity wear right away. My doctor said that it could be a little bit of bloating, but either way not to worry enjoy the increasing belly every week. It really is something. Not every women is going to show right away, everybodys body is different.
    Don't let others get you down about showing right away either, they just don't get that everyone is different. GOOD luck to you!

  • You may be gaining weight but I doubt its from the baby. A baby at that stage is still a twinkle lol.

  • I could tell I was pregnant before I could even get a positive pregnancy test. With my first I thought I had stomach cancer. It all depends on your body when you start to show.

  • I also wanted to add that I had lots of fluid with my first ds. I lost 30 lbs the first week after he was born. I think that is what is happening this time only worse.

  • Nope, I got a little pooch on my belly around that time simply because I took the "eating for two" thing way to literally. lol. I didn't start actually showing until about 20ish weeks though.

  • You've most likely just put on weight. The baby isn't big enough yet for it to take up any space and push your stomach out.
