Ha!  I was just going to start a thread about the same issue.  I am about 5 weeks also with my 2nd.  They say your body knows what to do after the first.  I normally have a flat-ish stomach and I already have a baby pooch!!  Gas?

It's normal, but it sure ain't the actual baby making you larger.

My belly immediately pooched, but some of it was gas and some of it was bloating... Your uterus is still below your pelvic bone so supposedly you can't start showing.  I think I just got fat.  *sigh*

I'm the same. Pregnant with my second and for the last week or so kept wondering why I was getting a fat little tummy (I didn't know yet). I think it's just bloating though, plus the little extra pooch from the first baby!

I think it's funny how many people on the Feb group are posting pictures of their bellies.  I don't find bloat gas and fat "cute", lol.  5 weeks with my 4th, and yup I have a belly, but it's just bloat!

Some women like to celebrate the changes their bodies go through and document the amazing journey involved in bringing forth an entirely new human being. I don't believe they're worried about the nasty judgements of others. orngtongue.gif

It's not just bloat! Your amniotic sac is filling with fluid.

I will pretend that is true, but I have seen the u/s.  There might be a teaspoon in there and it is all below the pubic line.  LOL

Yep, I'm showing. I still had baby fat from before, but the whole shape of my belly has shifted in the past few weeks. I imagine most if it is bloat, but I wonder if the shape of your uterus changes when you get pregnant (this is my third).

I started showing a few minutes after getting my BFP wink1.gif I was actually offered a seat on the subway around 6 weeks! Third baby in just over 3 years, my tummy muscles aren't even trying anymore.
