Is that possible?? I am 5'4'' and 113 lbs, I realize I have a little frame. But is it possible to be showing already? Its just a little pooch, but noticeable to me!
thanks in advance!
I am 5'3" 110lbs, 12 weeks pregnant with twins... I am just now barely showing.
It's probably bloat. I had/have a lot of that. You uterus is behind your bladder and pelvic bone still...
Some women get pregnant and use it as an excuse to eat a lot. Then say they are showing. When it is really just the milkshakes and cheeseburgers "showing".
I've been showing for quite awhile! ;)
Lauramurphy1986:Of course u can show already! Aslong as ur not over eating! Everyone is different my mum and my sisinlaw are very petite and they showed as early as 6weeks! I'm 6 weeks I just look bloated abit haha! Enjoy ur pregnancy xxx
Some people obviously have a different definition of 'showing', I don't consider bloat to be 'showing' and that's all it could be so early for even petite women. Baby at 6 weeks is only the size of a pea, it's impossible for their uteruses (uteri? Damn spelling! lol) to be even thinking of poking out from behind the pubic bone at 6 weeks. But I could definitely see extreme bloat really 'showing' on a petite pregnant women, you'd certainly notice it more on them than on someone like me who's already sporting more than a few extra unwanted pounds.

I hate how some people assume bloat is "eating too much". I've read that too much on these boards. I barely ate weeks 4-10 and was still super bloated. It's not just food bloat. It's hormones AND slower digestion, but that doesn't necessarily equal over-eating.

I didn't see anyone say that Bloat = overeating, just that if you are getting a belly already, it is either bloat OR overeating.
Don't feel bad... someone asked if I was pregnant today...CRAZY! I quickly told them no way!
I have a little frame as well, I am bloated though due to the pregnancy and fertility meds.

FI says the same thing.

MrsClark2015:somepeople seem to be acting a bit judgemental. a lot of us are first time moms so its helpful for us if our questions are answered respectfully. be mindful of how you needed some help your first time being a mom. all the best everyone!
Look, I'm not a little person and I've noticed students eyeballing the extra baggage around my midsection. There is no way in hell I'm showing at less than 6 weeks. It's bloat. It will be bloat until after your first trimester, most likely. Your uterus is still behind everything, and it hasn't grown enough to cause any changes like giving you a bump yet. You know what's even harder to hide? The already ginormous boobs. I was a 36DD-38D or so to begin with and I'm starting to spill over. Explain that one to people.
Some fun facts about pregnancy bloat:
It's not necessarily what you eat, though cutting back on salt can help
It's caused by hormones. You want those hormones, and so, you'll have the bloat.
According to the ladies who are further along, it can and most likely will go away, and will be replaced by the bump everyone evidently wants.
In the meantime, don't wear form-fitting clothes and deflect the questions that people shouldn't even be asking you in the first place.

And you comment isn't YAWN worthy! If u haven't got anything nice to say don't say anything!!! Let those of us who are happy and positive about our pregnancy write what we like! Saw my midwife this morning and she said u can show as early as 4 weeks if u are petite or slim! Everyone is different!!!!
This question is asked several times a day. Answering gets monotonous. Pick up a book- like most of us did for our first pregnancy... they're a little but more legit than a bunch of internet strangers- or scan down the board and read the responses to the other three times this has been asked today.
