Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My sister-in-law is like that.  She started showing at 6 weeks.  Now that she's 10 weeks, she can't fit into any of her old pants - she's gone to all maternity stuff.  It depends on your body.  Check with your doctor; I'm sure he/she will say it's perfectly normal.

I started showing with my son (my first) right away prob around 6 weeks also. Its very normal especially if you a a smaller person. I am 5 foot and WAS 103 when i got preg with him so my little baby bump popped out right away. It doesn't mean anything. As long as your eating healthy and exercising a little dont even worry about it. Be excited your pregnant and get just that much longer to show it off.

Yes it is normal. I was 110 pounds before, so you could tell i was pregnant around the first 5 or 6 weeks.

It is normal.  People close to me noticed my tummy at around 6 weeks and I didn't even know I was pregnant until 2 weeks later.  I just thought I wasn't working out enough.  Each person and pregancy can be different.  Stick to super stretchy jeans and leggings for comfort until you can fit maternity clothes.  Best wishes!
