This is my 3rd pregnancy (I have 2 boys, 5 and 3).  I am 12 weeks and already showing!  I'm not quite in maternity pants yet (possibly because of denial) but getting close.  I am only 5'1 and very petite.  Can anyone relate? 

Also, I thought I felt the baby move about a week ago.  Obviously I know what it feels like having already done this twice, but I'm starting to 2nd guess myself since I'm so early.  What do ya'll think about that?  Thanks for your advice!

I am 5 foot and with my third and fourth. I was showing at 4 weeks. My belly pops out and will be the same size for a few weeks and then just gets bigger from there.

With my third I felt her at 10 weeks. 12 weeks is not to early at all.

 This is my 3rd pregnancy too :) And I also have two boys, thier 6.5 & 4.5, I'm 4'11 btw :)

Im not showing yet BUT this time I have felt the stretching in my tummy, with my boys I never did. They do say with each pregnancy you show earlier & earlier though

I started showing with baby #3 between 10 & 12 weeks and felt the first movement at 11 weeks. I didn't believe it at first but then I felt it a few more times around 11-12 weeks and then consistently since 15 weeks (20 wks 2 days now).

this is my first pregnancy that has stuck. i started showing at like 10 or 11 weeks and no longer could wear most of my clothes. i also felt baby at 11 weeks. just once. and not again until 18 weeks (there was one time i think i felt baby, but still not 100% positive). so definately possible. especially with this being your third !

 I'm pregnant with my 3rd and felt movement at about 12 weeks also.  I started showing a little earlier, but more so that I noticed, it wasn't that noticable to others.

I'm 6 weeks 3 days with our third baby (4th pregnancy) and i'm not showing at all. I'm 5'2'' and recently lost 53lbs, so i'm back to a healthy/normal weight.

I've been showing for a week or two and I'm 9 weeks with my 3rd. I also swear I've felt quick pokes already. I definitely don't think you're too early to show. I showed early with all 3.

Yes i felt flutters at ten weeks im now 11wks2days. Im also 5'1 and i had a bump at 8 wks i think mostly due to bloat, but my cousin is ten wks ahead of me with her 3rd and im nearly showing just as much! Also i 2nd guessed too on the flutters but a u/s at 10wks5d clearly showed tons of movement so its possible!
