Am I showing at 5.5 weeks?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is it possible? Either I am or I just developed a huge belly I don't usually have and can't suck in. Is anyone else experiencing this? It is my 3rd baby but still! I didn't show until at least 3 months before. I wan't planning on announcing this since it was unplanned and I am trying to deal with it before I have to talk about it but...I think people will notice within 2 weeks. Anyone else?

ohhh yeah. Me too. I had a pouch at 5 weeks for sure. Now at 7 weeks I think its obvious I am pregnant if you know me. I am thin and don't normally have a belly pouch. I don't remember being this big this early with my dd either... I think i was more like 12-14 weeks when I was this big...

I pulled out my mat pants really close to 6 weeks or so. I'm 8wks and I only can wear those and a couple pairs of my normal pants.

I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and my husband told me tonight that he thinks it's pretty obvious at this point... and I was hoping not to say anything until my appt. (I don't go until mid-March!). I know I started to show around 6 weeks or so... and now much more. I know with my 2nd DD I didn't show until at least 11 weeks.

Could it just be a lot of bloating?

I am 7weeks along and I don't see huge changes except after I eat, I blow up and look 7 months pregnant! My husband did kindly say that I did look like I was getting bigger, he said it as if he thought I had been waiting to hear that until I shot him the shut the heck up look and I explained that he better take that word out of his vocabulary for the next nine months!! Does a fat layer start this early to protect the belly, I have been eating VERY healthy and getting 30min exercise daily but still am showing some rolling action!

BTW-how do I put up the cute icons and pics on this site?

I think that most of mine is bloating to be honest. I just don't know what else it could be!! It can't be baby yet.

Hey BFF!! Glad you joined! The emoticon list is on the side bar-----> and there is a MORE button below it for a huge list of them! To do pictures you have to do something like photobucket. They don't have any way to upload pictures directly to the site.
Congratulations everyone! :

My pants (this preg and last) get too tight by 5-6 wks. But, for me, it's all bloat. Last time, I didn't get a real baby bump until 17 wks. Expecting one a little earlier this time, but probably not until my 2nd tri.

For me it is a combo of bloat and that I think I can actually feel my fundus about an inch over my pubic bone whiloe standing. I think everything is starting to get squished upward.
Either way I look pregnant, as of three days ago. And my 3rd pregnancy I was at 6 weeks too. oh well

From about 5 to 6.5 weeks I was really bloated. Then the bloat went away and now it's a firm round belly. I couldn't button my jeans yesterday. I'm 8.5 weeks. I was really, really thin before I got pg. It was getting hard to hide around 7.5 weeks. With my first, I was 6 months pg and people still weren't noticing. I've gotten bigger, earlier, with each one. This is crazy for me though. I'm really tall and have a long torso so usually I can hide it for a while... I think my body is saying: "oh, pregnancy hormones, we've done this before, poof, here's a belly!"
