Showing already?

I am 6 weeks pregnant with my 2nd baby. People are saying I am showing already. Did anyone else have this happen to them? I have a "pooch" on my belly that is some fat but not very much. It seems to be getting bigger already though. Some people are saying its twins. I'm curious as to peoples thoughts and experiences on this.

  • My bff is about the same as you and it's her second. She has a little bump too.

  • My third stuck WAY out. At 6 months people thought I was having her any day. I showed early with her too. My 4th, I barely looked pregnant until I was over 7 months pregnant!! Typically you show faster with your 2nd and more. But then again, obviously for me, every pregnancy is SO different.

  • I think at 6 weeks it's most likely bloating combined with poor muscle tone and left over baby fat from a previous pregnancy. If you notice your other pregnancy symptoms are exagerated then it could very well be twins. My clothes started getting tight by 8 to 10 weeks when I was pregnant with twins, but I would say I was obviously showing by about 14 to 16 weeks. It was my second pregnancy.

    One baby or two - congrats & GL!

  • I have noticed my pants are uncomfortable and I started wearing maternity pants just out of comfort. I have to pee ALL the time and I am always hungry. I feel like I am eating like a horse and can't get enough food. I have a 16 month old who is VERY active so I don't know if that has to do with it or not.

  • The good news is that in a couple more weeks you should have your first ultrasound. I had my first at 7 weeks. It will tell you for sure. Good luck and congrats...

  • Yes! I'm 10 weeks and I look like i'm 6 months. But I've also been pregnant twice last year, both m.c. but
    I think the pregnancy muscles were already ready for this pregnancy so they developed quicker.

  • Sorry but its not possible to be showing at only 6 weeks! Your uterus is still VERY small and would not be noticable. Its either bloating or you are further along then you think

  • I'm 11 weeks pregnant with my 5th and already feel like I'm showing. I showed earlier and earlier with each pregnancy and I hate that it's this early and I'm going to have to go into maternity pants in a few weeks - my regular area already getting tight!
