  • Either you're gaining water weight, have been eating too much, or you're further along then you thought.

  • I agree with Amethystrse but also if you havent had a sonagram it could be twins, that makes you get bigger faster

  • you might be bloated!! im only 8 weeks and 3 days and i have a little bump too. im figuring its bc y stomach was kinda flat before and im a pretty skinny girl. i just took a pic of my stomach haha you should look at it lol.

  • sometimes if its your 2nd pregnancy you start to show faster...
    or it can be just extra water weight, and sometimes you think you are showing, but it is not as noticeable to others, it's just that you feel bloated.

  • There's a good chance it is water weight or bloating. However, if it's your second+ pregnancy and especially if you had your last child not that long ago, you can show faster. For instance, I got pregnant a few months after my son turned 1. At two months pregnant I looked 6 months pregnant!

  • If it's your second child, you often show earlier. I have a friend who is 17 weeks pregnant with her second child (and no, it's not twins) who looks about 6 months pregnant. She started showing at 7 weeks.

  • If this is your 2+ pregnancy, you will be showing faster...aside from water weight and bloating, it could be constipation too. I know its gross, but its one of those awful pregnancy symptoms that hit me right away.
