  • depends on your body shape, size and how your uterus is positioned.

    you can be super skinny, and not show til 15-16 weeks.

  • I would imagine pretty early since you have such a small frame. You can pass it off as being full or bloated at first if that's your concern.

  • You may not. I was around 100 pounds and 5'2" when I got pregnant with my first and didn't show early at all. I was 5 months pregnant and started a new job and was able to hide it. When I did start to show it seemed like I grew very quickly.

    With my last pregnancy I was sick with pneumonia a lot of the pregnancy and only got up to 122 pounds. I never wore maternity clothes.

  • I was 104 when I got pregnant the first time. At 6 mo. I could still tuck my shirt into my pants & I didnt even look pregnant to anyone else. I could tell I was though. I ended up with a 7 lb baby, btw.

  • Everyone said I showed early, but I always measured right on. I'm only 5ft and was 87lbs when I got pregnant the first time. My 2nd showed a lot faster and got a lot bigger quicker.. but I think that's normal. My babies were 7lbs10oz and 7lbs14oz.

  • It depends on your body. Even super skinny people don't show really early, but some do.

  • Wow. You need to eat a cheeseburger or 10. You are WAY too tiny. You should really gain some weight. That can't be healthy unless you're EXTREMELY short. How tall are you??
