Hi everyone,

I'm 5 weeks today pregnant and I already have a small bump I know it's not the baby as the baby is the size of a poppy seed but would I be showing so soon because its twins?

Even twins would not create a bump this early. It is most likely bloating and fluid retention, very common in the first trimester.

I agree with CrunchyMama.  I was bloated right from the get go.  Everyone's body is different so different parts of us expand at different times and in different directions.  Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Me too! I'm 5 weeks and I feel like my lower abdomen is swollen, and my jeans are just the teensiest bit tight. This is baby #2, with baby #1 I didn't notice anything until 5 months!

Thanks everyone you made me feel so much better. It's my first and I am just moving out with my boyfriend so we are not financially ready for twins so I was really worried. I'm 5 and a half weeks now and my stomach bloating has its good and bad days. No symptoms so far which is not too bad
