  • It depends on the person. Everyone shows at different times.

  • P.S. Don't worry, you aren't getting big too fast. The baby grows at he/her own speed.

  • Some women show right away and some dont show till they are over 6 months. My hips spread wide right away and by 4 weeks my boobs were a full cup size bigger. With my 2nd I didnt really show till I was 6 months and with my first at 3 months some folks thought I was allot further along. Each time is different.

  • Every time is different. With my oldest I didn't begin shoing at all until I was 22 weeks. With my last I was in maternity clothes by 12 weeks. Relax. Your weight is great.

  • Don't worry. Every woman shows differently. My aunt didn't show at all until she was ready to deliver my cousin and he was almost 10 lbs. I didn't show until I was about 7.5 months.

  • This was me at 11 weeks. It's definitely not too early. However, I will say this...I started showing early too and my belly got HUGE, so be prepared, lol! :)

  • everyone is different, sometimes it can be gas,{sorry but its true} and then again you could just be a early shower. but good luck im not far ahead of you with my 2nd and i was already showing before we found out at 5 weeks lol

  • This is my first child and I started showing way early too. I'm now 28 weeks and I feel like a blimp. Don't worry I think everybody shows differently. I'm very thing, but there was a girl in my breastfeeding class who was even tinier then me, and she is 8 1/2 months due any day now and she didn't look pregnant at all!
