weight loss before pregnancy

About 7 years ago I completed a journey from chubby teen to healthy adult and lost 60 pounds (I'm about 120). I am now pregnant with my first.. does anyone know if you show sooner on a first pregnancy because of past weight loss? Or would it not make a difference? Maybe I'm just bloated, but i swear im already starting to "show" at only 6 weeks+2 days.

I believe at first you're just bloated wich is normal but eventually you will show I'm a big girl and I'm 38 weeks 6 days I just started showing a month but since you're smaller you'll start showing sooner

It depends on how good your stomach muscles are aswell as what number baby your on.

What ^^ said. It depends on stomach muscles and body. It's just bloating. Women don't really start to show til they get closer to their second trimester. Some don't show til their third. All depends

Hehe...I thought I was super bloated at 7 weeks, My aunt's kept touching my belly and it drove me crazy to the point where I said "it's just 'cause I'm constipated". They immediately stopped groping at me. Haha. The next week I found out I was having twins.

Haha at the constipated comment. Thats funny. Yes depends on you stomach muscles and how many kids you have. Im on baby number two and started showing about secind trimester and im a big girl but have strong stomach muscles. Good luck and congrats to everyone.
