I am 8 weeks 2 days pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and I am already showing. I have a putch stomach and clothes are tight around my waist and stomach and jean's just arn't comfortable and I can barly button them. Before I got pregnant I weighed 128 so needless to say I am not overweight and i don't eat unhealthy and I don't eat more than I should. I have been to the doctor and I have had an ultrasound it only showed one sac with one baby. Twins run's in my family but I'm not concerned with that I don't think I am pregnant with twins. I am just wondering if it's normal to be showing at 8 weeks.
Alot of it can depend on the placement of your uterus, although the baby is like a 1/2 inch right now your insides are still streching and growing to make room for baby, It's ok your allowed to have a belly! Love that your excuse is pregnancy and not just fat! Good luck dear!
Look in 'my pictures' on my medhelp site to see a pic of my belly at 6 wks... it was a reall pouch and has kept growing! Most of it was bloating then. Now I'm nearly 15 weeks and it has become higher and more baby. I loved my early bump... can't help rubbing it when out and about! Good luck with your bump.. wear it with pride! :) x
I think it is probably bloating because I thought I was starting to 'show' at like 8-10 weeks too but now that I am 12 weeks, some of the bloating seems to have subsided...pants are definitely tighter but my belly doesn't look so bloated.
