I haven't gone to the doc yet but from my lmp I'm 8.4 weeks A few months ago I use to weigh 115, then about a few weeks to a month before I found out I was pregnant I weighed 126. Now I have a pouch and after I eat I look 6 months pregnant. I've had two other pregnancies before but both didn't make it past 10 weeks. Could I be "showing" or is it due to my weight gain before I was pregnant. I've been trying trying to eat less fatty foods and I wasn't very active or in shape before getting pregnant. I was a decent size. What can cause me showing?

in reality, it's most likely water weight, which is very normal early in pregnancy. when it comes to 'showing [a baby]' it will be a while for that because that little bean has to grow.

over the next several weeks you may notice that you "show" more at certain times of the day or after eating certain foods. i wouldn't buy maternity clothes just yet because odds are you won't need them for several months

I started showing much earlier this time around with my second pregnancy. The ob told me that you show sooner with each pregnancy as the uterus has been stretched out. idk how true it is but with my first I didn't start showing until 20 weeks and this time I had a bump starting at 12 weeks.

Well,this will not harm you any think going for 3rd pregnancy. But nowyou should take precaution with increasing fat like sugar level and thyroidlevel. If you can eat more of protein and fiber food, it will help you a lot inreducing sugar level during 2nd and 3rd trimester ofpregnancy.

I started showing right around 7-8 weeks with this (my third pregnancy, only second to make it out of the first trimester). And after I ate it looked like I was bigger than I had been even at 20 weeks last time with my daughter. There is something to say to muscle memory playing a role. I think my muscles and uterus expanded much quicker this time even though the baby didn't need the space yet. By the time I was at the 12 week mark, I was in full maternity clothes because nothing was comfortable on my belly. Good luck to you. Wishes you and baby the best!
