I am about 3 1/2 months and my belly is absolutely HUGE. Its ways bigger than anyone I ever knew. People keep saying I must be having twins but the doc only hears one heartbeat. Im already wearing maternity clothes. Anyone out there like me, is this normal, or could it be that I was only about 110 pounds when I got pregnant. Im freakin out that Im gonna have a 15 pound kid!

  • well they say that thinner people start to show earlier, so that may be it. also i started showing alot earlier with my second child than i did for the first or the third. it was because i had alot of bloating and gas (and constipation problems). once i got that squared away i went back to a 'normal' baby bump lol. maybe it's a combination of both for you.

  • My friend got her belly pretty early too. She was small as well. That could be it.

  • I was the same way with my 2nd baby! I was 3 months looking like I was 6 months! Eventually it evened out, she was 7lbs 15ozs at birth

  • My first I didn't show until 7 months, but my second I was huge at 3 months! And I'm not small by any means. I didn't gain more than 15 lbs the whole pregnancy, but the baby was 10 lbs 4 oz.

  • With my second and current pregnancy i started looking pregnant with a nice 2 month belly at 8 weeks. I am still pretty big but so far this month (6th) it looks like the growth spurt has stopped. It is always a toss up on what your baby will weigh at birth but you could also just have an excess of amnio fluid or gas and constipation as pp said. Good luck.
