Are you showing? - Page 5

post #81 of 95
I am 7w5d and feel like my tummy is slightly bigger in just the last few days. I am hoping to not show until my 2nd trimester, when we want to announce our good news.

So far I am doing okay, I wear my pants baggy and so I have room to grow into them. I have one pair of jeans that I am not comfortable in, of course they are my snug-sexy jeans.

Cant wait to post my 8 week photo tonight. I am sure my belly has doubled in size in one week. the last few days I have popped (wow, that didn't happen until 23 weeks last time).

You can probably pull it off being your first pregnancy. Many firsts do not show until 16 weeks or after

I am 5 weeks officially tomorrow and about 10 days before my positive test I kept saying to hubby... do you see this, what is up I can not suck it in. I lost 55 lbs from 1/09 thru 12/09. Many have comments on how much it is noticable in the tummy area ... well now there is a bump.... so I think others will just assume I am gaining weight not pregnat.

This is a pleasant surprise pregnancy and mostly no one in our family will expect it. DD is 7 DS is 5. I don't recall exactly when I started showing with DD, but I know with DS (got preg when DD turned 1) I was needing to pull out the maternity pants at 8 weeks.

I think my muscle tone is not so great being obese and having recently lost 55lbs, so pop... there it is.

Thanks for reminding me that belly pics should be taken... I had not even thought of that yet. (told ya it was a surprise

i could suck it in pretty well until i got pregnant and then POOF!

plus I had just lost 15 pounds and randomly gained it all right back just before getting pregnant (putting me back above bmi 30 which has me terrified of twins)

what do you mean about bmi and twins... are they related? I have not heard that before. DH told me he dreamt several times that twins were coming (his dad is a twin and so far none of the kids have had twins).

I bought a pair of maternity pants today (from Old Navy that don't look like Maternity but are SO comfy). I know that I'll be working in a classroom from Feb-April (possibly May) and I need to have appropriate clothing so it was an investment.

one of the things that increases your chance for twins is a bmi greater than 30

i also have family history and this being my fourth pregnancy... which is supposed to be a turning point for some women.

This is my first. My pants are tight like I've gained a few pounds ... but the scale says I haven't gained a single pound. I look pudgier in the mirror to myself but no one has noticed. (not even dh)

My belly is catching up in the race against my boobs! Bought some jeans from Old Navy today as well!

My jeans are snugger in the belly area but nothing to notice. The annoying part of no longer being very thin is that when I get pg, all it does for a month is to push the fat up out of my pelvis onto my waist, so then my waist looks fat!
