My best friend was the same way. Continue your normal exercise regimen, but don't add anything to it... And keep in mind, its not belly fat, its your uterus expanding making space for your baby. Everyone's body responds differently to pregnancy and everyone starts showing at different times. I had a baby bump that was tiny for the first 4 months with my first and at 5 months plus is when I really started showing and expanding out. With my second pregnancy I was in maternity clothes literally at 6 weeks because everything felt too tight against my belly. My best friend was in maternity clothing with her first child at 12 weeks. She was so frustrated because she was very athletic too and had a very tiny build. She quickly realized that it was just part of being pregnant and that there wasn't much she could do but continue to be active and eat right so that she could shed it once the pregnancy was over.
