  • everyone is different. With my first I started showing at 12 weeks, and with this baby I am 24 weeks and barely showing. So everyone is different, and every pregnancy is differnt. Dont worry about it, its ALL normal lol

  • you're not showing in the baby sense, you're just bloated- that happens

  • For a very skinny woman, I would say yes. You have no where to hide it, lol.

  • I was really tiny when I got pregnant the first and 3rd time and it wasnt long at all before I was ballooning out there. Dont worry about it one little bit, because you are so little that is why it seems you are getting bigger so fast. Make sure you rub your belly with good lotion or cocoa butter all through the pregnancy, keep moisturized, it will help with stretch marks :)
