11 weeks too early to show?

This is my third pregnancy. I just don't remember showing this early, but I definitely have a small bump. Others are commenting on it. My tummy feels very firm, so I know it's definitely a baby bump and not just bloat. I actually don't feel bloated at all. Is this a bit early to show, or completely normal? Does this mean my belly will be extra big by my due date? :(

  • Your 3rd pregnancy and you don't look like someone who's overweight so I think it's pretty likely you're showing.

  • I'm not overweight, and I haven't gained any weight yet in the pregnancy. I guess I am showing... I'm just scared I'm going to be enormous by the end of my pregnancy! lol

  • For my third pregnancy, I was showing at 9 weeks, and was was about the same size at the end as the other two pregnancies. Totally normal, nothing to worry about :)

  • Since you were pregnant twice before, I'd expect you to show earlier with #3. Congratulations!

  • I think you show earlier and earlier with each pregnancy.

  • This is my second and I started showing at 10 weeks. I'm only 5 months but I've gained 10lbs so far, and my doc wanted 30. Unless I gorge at the end I don't foresee that happening, but I also threw everything up the first 4 months this time around, so I got a late start on the gaining train. My point is although I showed super early, I'm no where near being overweight, or gaining too much, and my guess is you'll gain about the same amount this time around as the last 2 times.
