Showing a little at 10 weeks?

 So I am almost 10 weeks and have noticed that the bulge I had only a week or so ago, just after eating a meal, now is constantly there all the time. Even when I wake up in the mornings famished, I used to have a flat tummy, from not eating over night for 8 hours. Now I have a bulge then too. At first I figured, o im just bloated probably, but I don't feel bloated at all and its been a week now. I look like I am 4 months along lol I am so tiny in every way could I very well be showing this early?  My tummy muscles are sore now, and my back is alway sore. I feel like Ive done a hundred crunches even when I haven't lifted a finger. I know if I were showing it wouldn't be due to the size of the baby, as it's the size of an olive lol it would be to my uterus growing.

Now I want to see pics of your baby bump! I'm sure if you started that small you probably do have a big bump by now! It's good that you try to stay healthy, some women just have a hard time putting on weight and are always small. You'll have to let us know when they confirm that there is only one!

Yes the Dr has weighed me. I have been this weight and height for years. I am just naturally skinny. I cant put weight on regardless. I eat whatever I want and dont have to think twice. Of course now I don't mean that literally since I am pregnant, I make sure I eat healthy, full balanced meals whenever possible and eat very little junk. My BMI is slightly lower than the norm for my height, its at 17 ish when norm is 18/19 ish. I am perfectly healthy though :smileyhappy:

oh goodness, you ARE tiny!! i'd say it's a definite possibility, then, that you're starting to pop out a little bit already... there's nowhere to go but out! my little sister is 4'10" and she did get pretty big in the belly since there's nowhere for that baby to hang out. 82lbs sounds pretty light even for your height. have you seen a doctor yet and is there any concern over your weight? good luck in your pregnancy... hope it goes well for you!!

I am quite a lot smaller than you. I am 4'9" and  82lbs. Very tiny in all aspects. lol I look so big for 10 weeks its creepy. And I am almost wondering if theres more than one in there. Although I know for that to happen my HCG levels would be alot higher, and so far I've only had a few queasy days 2 weeks ago and my boobs only got sore like 5 days ago. So I don't think there would be two....

I have a pretty small frame too. I don't have pictures from 10 weeks but I don't think there was much to see. Things had started to feel different and clothes fit differently, but I didn't have a bump yet. For reference, I'm 5'4", normally about 112 lbs (size 0-2). By 12 weeks, I could see a little something.
I'm 17.5 weeks now. The only definite movement I've felt was after my dachshund jumped on my belly. Baby went nuts right after that. I'm wondering about some flutterings now, but can't say for sure they're baby just yet. They say around 18 weeks, so I don't feel like being small has made that happen early for me.

I have been for my head to toe, a week ago. She didn't listen for a heart beat at that point, just felt my uterus. I have blood work on the 20th then around the beginning of Sept go in for my next check up. Hopefully then they will listen for a heart beat.

I to have had ligament pain, and my stomach muscles are sore as well from everything expanding. My back is also quite sore too. My neck has broken out quite bad, but I got a perscription yesterday from the doctor for it. But if this all is the worst I'll get in the first trimester, no complaints there.

I had a very small coworker that looked pg when she announced at 10 weeks. She definitely had a good bulge. At 12 weeks your uterus should be about the size of a grapefruit, so I don't doubt that you're showing a little at this point. My coworker couldn't wear tight shirts just before she announced because it would have given her away. I'm sure everything is fine and I wouldn't worry about there being two just yet. They will listen carefully to heart tones if they haven't already and they should notice if there is more than one. It's not the best way to tell, but my doctor made sure since I had a really high beta. She told me high betas can also signal a girl :smileyhappy: Have you been to the doctor yet or are you still waiting for your first appointment? Try not to worry too much just yet. I'm glad you're pretty much symptomless, I didn't really have any MS up to this point and just sore BB's and lots of ligament pain. Keep us posted on how things are going.

We know my dates, Last period was june 4th and due date is around march 13. That being said the dr will not preform an ultrasound earlier than 18 weeks unless they are unsure of my dates or if there is a medical reason, like I was high risk. So I hope to god there is just one baby. If I had two in there, that would be a great risk to my life. I physically would not be able to carry two. One will be a feat for me. I really think it has to do with my small frame, since more than one would cause higher HCG levels, and I have had no morning sickness and my breasts only started hurting this past week. Im pretty much symptomless really.

Are you sure that there's only one baby? Have you confirmed your due date? Otherwise, it could just be because of your small frame that your showing a little sooner. I started having a very small bulge at 14 weeks and definite baby bump at 16 weeks. Your uterus is still really low in your pelvis until 2nd trimester (when it starts moving up) and it's even with your belly button at 20 weeks. When your uterus grows you can feel it because it feels like a sharp and sudden pain (round ligament pain) that doesn't last long and it's to one side or the other. If you do have a smaller frame, you'll feel the baby move sooner, too. I started feeling inconsistent movements at 14 weeks (and I am not small framed) and definite and consistent from 16 weeks on. The baby was kicking so hard last night that I could feel it from the outside, but DH couldn't. I think it's just because the baby stopped kicking when he placed his hand there, but he should be able to start feeling it in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, it doesn't freak him out, lol.
