Talking question about the little bump :)

So I'm 14 weeks tomorrow, and I feel like I'm showing already. At first I was bad, but then Abagail Grace's development slowed down and I just stayed at the same size, but this morning before my appt. when I got up I was like oh...*wow*! My little bump has officially reached up past my bellybutton!
My OB said my uterus is measuring about 16 wks, but that's from all the extra amniotic fluid.

My question...
Do women who are shorter and were very fit before pregnancy show sooner? I don't know if this is just all bloating or what! But I feel big

Re: question about the little bump :)

I'm 5'1" and my torso is really short (I only have like 4 inches between my hip bone and ribcage) and as of just yesterday I have really popped out! My uterus is already pushing everything up and out. I can only imagine what I'm gonna look like in a few months. It makes sense that shorter girls would show earlier because we just don't have the torso room. Oh yeah, As of today I am 16 weeks 4 days.

Re: question about the little bump :)

Skinnier women tend to show sooner. I am 5'3 and was 135 lbs pre-preggers and got huge by the time I was 9 months along. Watch what you eat... it gets hard to carry all that weight around once your get big. Your arent too far along yet and your stomach can still appear smaller somedays.
