I am also about 6 weeks along and can tell a difference in my waist line. I thought maybe it was in my head. I have been eating a little more, but not excessivly. this is my second baby. I hope someone response with an answer.

Somtimes people gain weight faster, because they are carrying more than one baby. Have you experienced dounle symptoms, talk with the docyor about how you feel, there maybe a chance that you are carrying more than one.

When you have more than one pregnancy, you tend to get bigger more quickly with each subsequent one. When you are initially pregnant, for the first time, your body has a lot of stretching to do. The second, third and more time around, your uterus has already been stretched out before and there for you will show sooner. It is kind of hard to explain and understand, but it is true. For me and every other Mother I know that has more than one child. In answer to our question, you could have more than one cooking in there!

I agree with Melissa's comments about the stretching of your uterus, but you won't necessarily have two in there. I am about to give birth to my second in a couple months. For both of my pregnancies I showed early, but hadn't actually gained any weight. I experienced a lot of bloating, that later turned into baby. Plus if you are really skinny you may have a noticable difference in you waist early on because you have no extra space to hide it at all. Just remember everyone is different. Even my first pregnancy to the one I am currently in have been completely different. This time around I couldn't even hide it through the first trimester.

It depends on how many pregnancies you've had so far and how close together those pregnancies were. If your muscles didn't have much of a chance to contract to pre-pregnancy conditions before your next child came along then they strecth much more easily.

It is possible to show quickly and largly it is not necessarily bad so don't worry so much its not healthy for your baby. I am almost 5 months and hardly show at all... I not worried though because doc says I am fine :) Smile, it could be twins :)

I got big fast with my first child...first alot of bloating and then my pants wouldn't zip by 11 weeks....by 5 months people were asking me if I was due very soon!! My advice: MAKE SURE YOU USE THE STRETCHMARK CREAM!!

If you are slender to start with you will show sooner than someone with more weight. Also most of the time to show this early is a result from bowel distention caused by constipation in the early stages of pregnancy
