Showing at 8 weeks?


Hey ladies, so I may sound totally wacko but I could swear that I am showing. I am about 8weeks 2days pregnant (by my calculations) and I could swear I am starting to show. It feels hard under my belly button and its pointing up instead of forward (my belly button). I know most women don't show until 12-18 weeks. Another thing I may add is that my family has a history of their uterus being up higher than normal. Could this also influence my showing so early? It doesn't feel like bloat, its HARD. Or could I be having twins?! I won't have a scan for another 4 weeks so I am very curious what this could be.

Thank you!!

I feel like I started showing around 8-9 weeks too...I had to buy maternity pants around 10 weeks bc mine were so tight! I've had two early ultrasounds and was not showing twins (we do have a few sets on my side so that was my first thought) but at this rate I am going to be HUGE by the time I give birth!!! I feel like I look 20 something weeks already Huge bump. Yours could be bloat at this point maybe?? I've also heard that if you are typically on the smaller/thinner side that some show sooner?? Good luck. Maybe it is twins!

That's how I feel! It is even stranger cause this is my first I am in maternity clothes now. I am sticking to just leggings right now. I tried wearing my jeans that are very loose on my legs and they were super tight on my lower tummy. So my mother bought me two pairs of pregnancy pants and all I wear after work are sweats. I am so exciting to show early! Its becoming more real. I feel lucky. You should post a pic of your bump now for me! I see you are 15 weeks. I will get home a post a pic of mine right now. You may be astonished. This baby is going to be BIG!

Hello, thought I would pop in

Both myself and my dh could tell at about 6-7 weeks and close friends could tell at about 11weeks

I was paranoid and thought it was bloat and would go away but just kept on growing

Enjoy your bump and congratulations xxx

I am huge but this is my 3rd!!

with my 1st, I didn't show until I was 8 months pregnant and wore the same size jeans and everything, she was also really high. With my 2nd, I started showing at 10 weeks but I had very tiny bump until I delivered him. There is no hiding this one! I've been getting comments on how I look like I'm having twins, we find out Monday!!

I'm wondering if this will be my "small" baby, because I was so tiny with my others and they were big at birth!

You might be showing! Everyone is different. If its your second apparently you're more likely to show earlier.
I was really bloated up until about 11 weeks. In fact I I looked more pregnant at 8 weeks than I do now at 13 weeks!

This is my second and I'm definitely showing. In fact, because of the bloat with my first I ended up telling my coworkers at 8 weeks.

Lovely bumps ladies!!

I think it's possible to show early...
I don't think I'm showing yet cos I take pics every week and the bloat looks like a different size every time. And I think I can tell where my uterus is because it is getting hard, so I know the thing above it is my bloated tummz hehe. But anything is possible, can't wait to see your bump pic!

I've heard many ladies say they show sooner with their 2nd pregnancies.

At 7 weeks I had a big 'bump' but it was bloat. Stayed for a couple of weeks and is now starting to go down but is still there sometimes. I was sure it was bloat as it was more above my belly button where my stomach was rather than underneath. Still meant I've been in maternity trousers since week 7/8 though!! Felt a bit ridiculous buying them that early but they are so much comfier! X
