Almost 7 weeks and showing already???

Hi, i will be 7 weeks pregnant on Thursday (7-2), and already my belly is protruding noticeably (this is my first baby)

I am 5 ft 4", and around 93 pounds, and have taken a UK size 6 (US 0-2) for the last few years.

Is this normal that i could be showing so early, or is something wrong with me?? Has this happened to anyone else before?? What is the normal time to start showing?? Please does anyone have any advice or thoughts on this???

Re: Almost 7 weeks and showing already???

The time of showing will vary from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy.
Some women especially small built tend(not always) to show earlier than average size women.
Also there is the lovely thought that those pregnant with twins(multiples) will show sooner... Not always true with that either.

I showed early with my second child. I was a matron of honor for a wedding and had to have a gusset sewn into my dress for the extending belly, I was 8 weeks!! My son ending up weighing 9.2 pounds and I only gained 17 pounds.

Im also very small, and when Im pregnant, I show early (bloating, baby???) but I dont get really big till the last couple of months. Doctor told me I show early cause I dont have anything "extra" on me to conceal the growing uterus. Its funny at the end, though, to have everything on you small except for this giant belly!

Re: Almost 7 weeks and showing already???

I felt like I was showing early too. I am not skinny, though. I think it was my intestines doing a number on me. And bloating. I am 10-11 weeks now and I am looking forward to starting to show. Then at least I know people will know I am pregnant, not just dumpy!!

My friend was a tiny little thing(short too!!) as you sound like you are and by 7 months she had to sit with her legs open so her tummy could rest on the chair. She was huge!! Her son came out 8 lbs..she only gained 28 and she lost it by 1 week postpartum. Me on the other hand didn't show until 5 1/2 months the first time a round and gained 55 lbs...still hanging on to 25lbs uggg!! This just shows that everyone is different and if you are already showing take it as a good have more time to get compliments on how radient you look as a glowing mother-to-be!!

Smile, life doesn't last that long.
