First of all, if this is something that you are really worrying about then you should relax. As you will have probably been told at some point in your life, all women are different and unique, and this means that their bodies differ in certain ways. Therefore at the time of pregnancy, all women's bodies will grow and develop at different rates.

An alarming growth of your belly is definitely nothing to worry about during pregnancy as it simply means that your stomach is expanding to make the necessary space to accommodate a growing human child. Your stomach will grow in proportion to your original size and how much room will be needed for your baby to grow.

The growth of the belly also depends on a number of different factors such as your original body size and the foetus' size as mentioned before, the foetus' growth rate i.e. If your baby is growing quite fast then your stomach will get bigger more quickly and even your body's individual adaptations to the hormone changes that occur inside your body. All of these factors are different in each individual women, so there is no need for alarm if you believe your stomach is bigger or smaller than it should be.

At ten weeks inside the womb, your baby is growing fast. If you could take a peek inside your belly, you would notice that your baby has individual fingers with tiny little fingernails just beginning to make themselves visible. Your baby's hair would also be just beginning to grow. All of his vital organs including kidneys, liver, intestines and brain are developing quickly. From the crown of his head to rump, your baby will measure approximately 1 _ inch. Over the next couple of weeks, your baby will just about double in size, making them about three inches long.

There should not be anything to worry about at ten weeks but if you still feel that your belly is either too big or too small for where you are in your pregnancy, then you should make an appointment to see your doctor or gynaecologist as they will be able to check you out and reassure you.

On the 23rd, I had my US and found out I was 8.6wks instead of the 6 wks I thought initially.  I already look like I'm 5mths pregnant and this is my 3rd baby.  I showed early on with my first, as well.  I love showing but oh my god I already feel miserable.  Exhausted, gums hurt, gas, its crazy.

Your uterus is the size of a grapefruit at 10 weeks and your belly might be expanding to make room.  Pants might be getting harder to button.  Bloating and constipation will not help this process either... You may feel a lot bigger than you really are!

I'm 12 weeks and not showing at all, everything is normal. We mommies just need to not stress out so much. If we keep in touch with our doctors, we should be fine.

Everyone is different.  Remember, their is a LOT of bloating and constipation.  I am 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow and I know that cutting down on salt and increasing my water intake has help my bloating/constipation.  I haven't gained or lost weight but I do feel more comfortable.

I am nine weeks tomorrow and I am showing quite a bit. I am only small (around 5ft 1") and slim. I am a twin myself and my brothers and sisters are triplets, but I had an emergency ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and they couldn't see anymore than 1. I think we are all just different

All women, of course, differ in size. Similarly, at the time of pregnancy, the growth of their body and their stomach will differ too. The stomach simply grows in proportion to the body frame, and according to how much space the foetus needs to grow. The growth of the belly depends on different factors, such as the original size of the body, the size of the foetus, the growth rate of the foetus, the body's adaptation to hormonal changes, etc. all these factors are different in different women, hence their body shape and size of the stomach also varies at the time of pregnancy.

An alarming growth of your belly is really nothing to worry about; it simply means that your body is making the necessary space to accommodate the growing foetus. However, if you feel that your belly size is not normal, then it would be advisable to consult your gynaecologist.

Usually around ten weeks you do not show at all unless your are carrying multiple births. But there are many diagrams via the internet that can show you models. Congrats on the baby.
