Re: Confirmed to be 6 weeks pregnant.. is it possible to show already?
Wow, this is exactly what's going on with me. I'm FIVE weeks pregnant and already gaining. Five weeks pregnant means only about 2 weeks since implantation, but I've somehow put on three pounds in those two weeks. Before I even suspected I was pregnant, my clothes got tight and I was looking at myself in the mirror, wondering where that extra belly came from. My mother-in-law actually asked me if I was pregnant.
Normally, most of the baby weight doesn't start to pack on for 4-5 months, but apparently us skinny ladies sometimes gain a few pounds right at the start of pregnancy. It's nature's way of protecting the child, in case nausea or lack of food becomes a problem later on.
It could also be related to water retention or bloating from digestive trouble. Or it could be all of the above.
