ok so as i said in my last question im 17 and 6 weeks pregnant.. my question now is, i havent gained any weight but im already starting to show! my friends think i could be possibly having more than one baby, is it possible to normally start showing that early, or is my friend right?

You're VERY early to show, especially with a first pregnancy, whether you have a single or multiple birth ahead of you. (And given twins are smaller in size than single births, the difference in "show" size is not generally all that extreme.)

It's possible you are just starting to gain some weight, or, if it really looks like you've got a "bump" between your hips per showing, it's possible you have been pregnant for longer than you suspected.

When you see a doctor to verify your pregnancy and get you started on prenatal, they can both address this and tell you how many weeks pregnant you actually are.

(When was your last menstrual period?)
