    how quick do you get a baby belly i am showing already 1 week
    tlkittycat1968 responded:
    I doubt you are showing just yet as the embryo is smaller than a grain of rice at this point. What you are probably experiencing is bloating which is common in early pregnancy.

    As for when you show, it varies from woman to woman and whether it's your first pregnancy or not. I had a supervisor who said she didn't show with her son until she was almost 6 months along. I showed sooner with my 2nd than I did with my first.

    what advice would you give me. i KNOW that no one shows as soon as they get pregnant. I am VERY bloated and I usually don't bloat during my period. My husband and other have noticed my tummy over the past couple of days; which means that its kinda out there. I am not sure if i am pregnant, so could being pregnant be the reason for the bloating?

    It could be or it could be PMS.
    Wait and see and if you miss your period when it's due by more than 2-7 days then take a test with 1st morning urine.
    Best of luck.
