Pregnancy bloat? Baby Belly? Or what?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Holy heck, none of my pants fit! I am only 5w3d, but I cannot squeeze into my pants at all. I already had to buy a size larger at Goodwill this weekend.

This is my 4th pregnancy, and as sick as I feel I am SO starving and have gained 3-4lbs, but I have been in this size jeans at a higher weight than now. How can something the size of a grain of rice make me unable to zip up my pants?!? Anyone else feel like they need to break out the sweatpants before 6 weeks???

This is the second morning that I needed to break out the belly band Now I do have multiple sizes in my pants, but the bigger pants are starting to get a little tighter. We went shopping for a nice outfit last week for the rehearsal dinner for BIL's wedding and there were a few outfits that DP veto'd because I looked HUGELY PREGNANT in...

Pants fresh out of the dryer aren't too friendly to my waistline recently. It gets more comfortable after a few squats and some shifting. I doubt those strategies will last much longer...sigh.

As soon as my husband gets home I think I will hit Target for some Bella Bands.

I've been pretty ok in the morning, but once the evening rolls around, the bloat is making me look 4 months pregnant already!

My pants are fine, it's wearing a bra that kills me. Anything that cuts across where my stomach sits makes me feel like I'm going to puke. That's the are of my tummy that's bloating a bit.

Do they sell Bella Bands at Target? I'd love to know since I've always wanted to try one but didn't want to buy without knowing if I liked it or not.

They do, they are made by the same people, and called BeBands and sell for like $17. They may be thinner, I am not sure. I know they have Spanx that are made by Spanx, called something else, but are not as thick.

I already have quite the belly at 6.5 weeks! It is crazy, and will be hard to hide this pregnancy for long. For me especially in the evening too!

I thought it was just me!! I looked in the mirror today and saw a belly. My pants stopped buttoning comfortably last week, too.

I was at a conference today and saw someone who looked about the same size prego as me and I stopped her to ask how far along she is and she said 14 wks!! I'm only 6w5d (with twins) but still....

With all the other twins expected in this DDC and high betas, I am worried too. 1 week until my ultrasound!

DH looked at me yesterday and said, "I think you're about to show!" Aaack! I'm only 8 weeks and a few days, and I'd really like to wait another month before announcing it to the world. I didn't think I was supposed to show this early with #1! How early did you guys start to show with your first? I've only gained two pounds, but those two are making me look ridiculous. And my clothes don't fit. It's too early to go buy maternity clothes, isn't it???

I was about 16 weeks when I showed with my pregnancies. I mean I had a little belly but nothing that couldn't have been excused by a big meal.

I was 40 weeks pregnant with #1 and people would still ask cautiously 'Are you pregnant?' though.

Yeah, me too. I would love to know what causes that bloat. I remember having it with DS too.

I don't think I can get bella bands where I live, but they look awesome. I'll have to see if I can get them shipped here.

Watch out-- twins seem to be running rampant in our DDC.

Count me in too for the massive bloat. My waist has gone up and inch and a half in the last week alone. Nothing the size of a blueberry should cause this much belly!

lol, that would sure be shocking; multiples don't run at all in either family
