  • Are you having twins, a few of my friends that have had twins thought that they look bigger then they should be and it turned out to be twins

  • I gained a massive amount of weight with my first baby and a moderate amount with my second.

    I retained a LOT of water, especially with my first. A week after he was born I dropped 30lbs out of nowhere and actually had ankles again. It was a very exciting day.

  • you could just be bloated at this point. that's pretty common in the first trimester.

  • Is this your first or second/third, etc? With second and there after, women's bodies tend to change more quickly because their organs are already stretched out so to speak. At eight weeks though, it is likely attributed to increased blood volume and water retention as you body prepares to support the baby's blood supply and amniotic fluid.
