Starting to show?

Hi, I've been on the September EC and decided to jump over here for a minute to check out other first-timers like me. I mean, the women on #2,3,4,5 are great, but sometimes I feel like I don't relate -- at all. Other times... well it's great for someone to explain to me what a Braxton Hicks contraction will feel like. Anyway, there was some discussion about beginning to show and a first timer was posing the question -- most people seemed to agree that typically first timers show around 4-5 months.
However, I'm 12 weeks and I have a very definite and very small belly. I have moved out of my regular clothes (usually a size six)and now I'm about to pull out some size 12 blazers today to wear to work. I look perfectly normal from the chest on up -- I'm just gaining in the mid-section, and yes starting to stick out in front a little bit. Those size 12s look humungous on top, but will hopefully hang on my midsection a little better than my size 8s and 10s. I'm into maternity wear after these size 12s, too. I don't have anything larger than a size 12. I'm also tall and narrow-hipped and I'm thinking that's got to play a part in my belly???
Any other first timers begin to show something, anything, before the magical 4 or 5 months?
