  • I think it happens sooner every pregnancy, but 6 weeks? The baby is the size of a grain of rice?

  • Lol, your body knows what is coming and is just getting ready early. It's not the baby protruding this early but it's your muscles already beginning to relax that makes you look bigger.

  • It's probably just bloating, since your baby is still itty-bitty at this point. But it is normal to show earlier and earlier with every pregnancy.

  • Your muscles are more lax this time around, so they're letting everything "hang out" more sooner. Also keep in mind that you're probably not showing as much as you think. Most pregnant women think they're huge, when other people will be thinking, "Hmmm...I wonder if she's pregnant?" :)

  • i was in little prego clothes that early also because i was bloated. its just being bloated your not literally SHOWINg from the size of the baby. it will probably go down in a few weeks and then you will show normal.

  • The books say that with every pregnancy your body is already stretched out in the stomach muscles, so it appears that your belly is round and bloated, but its not b/c the baby is that big (obviously), its just the body getting ready and having an easier time doing that!! Good luck!!!
