Anybody's belly expanding yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 69

My belly looks so bloated. I don't even know what happened to it in the past week. I was zipping my jeans up no problem this time last week. Now all of my jeans are really uncomfortable and I've had to break out the next size up. Much more comfortable, but they hang off my backend! lol.gif With my last two, I had to be in maternity clothes full-time way before the second trimester. I am thinking it is going to be a similar story this time!

My hubby says no, but I can tell I'm already puffing out a little bit.  I don't need a belt for my jeans any more, and I've been living in stretch pants or skirts all week; they're much more comfortable than proper pants. 

 

I don't know how much of it is that I'm pigging out constantly, or that I haven't worked out since before my daughter was born - last time I had a really flat stomach, but it's a lot rounder now - a mama tummy.

The scale says no, but I unbutton my jeans when I play blocks on the floor with my toddler. DH asked me if I wanted him to get my fat clothes out of the attic yet. In retrospect I know he meant well, but in the moment, I threw my toothbrush at him...

LOL I think I would have done the same (thrown something at DH)!!

Same here, scale says nothing different but I'm officially unbuttoning the jeans.  It's mostly just uncomfortable, not like they don't close.  I'm not in a huge rush to dive into mat clothes this time...

I'm still really early but starting to notice The Bloat a lot more already.  I have actually lost about 3lbs since I found out five days ago, but dh and I can def. see a difference already.  Of course it isn't belly yet, but def. bloat.  This is my sixth pregnancy and I'm sure that plays a big role.

post #26 of 69

yup. 4th pregnancy (3rd baby) and im BLOATED. ugh. im only 5.2 weeks and my belly is sticking out. i had this with all my previous pregnancies though...

post #27 of 69

I am lurking here, but ... Question for you mamma's who are expecting, but have had more pregnancies than babies (like me, grouphug.gif) do you think that each pregnancy brings earlier symptoms (especially the bloating) even though we've experienced loss? i guess what i mean is, (while trying to be delicate on this topic) do our pregnancies that have ended too soon still leave a mark on our body as well as our mind? AFM, we lost our Molly at 5 weeks the day before Thanksgiving & are waiting & watching my BBT chart, hoping to join this DDC or the next. This would be my 3rd pregnancy & though i may be imagining it, i'm feeling the bloat & other symptoms even earlier than I did with our previous lost pregnancy. I guess this is a question better suited for the "pregnancy after loss" thread, but from what i gather there are some mamma's in this DDC who have been down the same road as me.

mohawk hug2.gif  When I lost my Riley at 12 weeks, it was my second loss in five months.  When I got pg with dd2 a month after my d&c, it was CRAZY how fast I showed.  My body had already been practicing for weeks and weeks, so  I just popped right out.  And the other symptoms seemed more pronounced too.  I think when our bodies get in pregnancy mode it takes a long while for that to go away, so naturally when we get pg soon after, thing seem more obvious.  I hope you get that bfp double quick.

thank you jillybeans.  i felt your hugs & your well wishes, because this morning at 10 DPO, & 26 days after losing Molly, i got a BFP. i knew 5 days ago, or atleast was hoping i knew, lol. i'm a little confused about my EDD since they usually count from LMP, which in this case was first day of my m/c. & i do know when we conceived this time, so i guess there's an optional EDD calculator using that info. so i'm thinking very late august to very early september. either way, i am SO scared i'm gonna lose this baby too. but at the same time i'm happy & excited. not telling anyone yet. maybe not til we see/hear a heartbeat, but i may not be able to "hide" it til then. in either case, i REFUSE to try to actually hide my growing belly. i am not ashamed & i will NOT change my appearance to conceal my tummy, whenever it shows it shows, i think. but if noone notices before we have a heartbeat then that's ok with us too.

Anyone else bloated so much that they look 6 months pregnant?

post #32 of 69

Mohawk:  SOOOOO happy for your BFP!!!  Congrats, mama, and try to enjoy every minute of it!.  BTW--we have a PAL (pregnancy after loss) thread going here in the DDC as well if you want a place to feel comfortable discussing your fears.  We all understand!

 

MrsMike:  I haven't been able to button my pants for over a week! irked.gif  The scale isn't showing much movement, but I feel as big as a house already.

Not what you're talking about but I just found these online and can't wait to rock them!!  I didn't even realize they made these!  I was thinking I'd be swimming around in XL by the end of this pg!

post #36 of 69

For being six weeks I look six months pregnant already.  Which is making it very hard to hide it from my roommate.  I know I'm skinny and it's my fourth, but this is crazy.  I usually never end up in maternity jeans.  I usually just wear my regular low waisted ones through the entire pregnancies.  But that will not be the case this time if I keep eating and growing like this!

post #37 of 69

I am so bloated too (maybe it's all the pickles I'm eating...) but I definitely think some of it is baby too.  I'm almost 8 weeks, so it's possible right? It's too uncomfortable to wear anything that buttons, so I'm living in stretch pants and skirts right now.  I can't believe I"m showing this early though!

post #38 of 69

Literally just happened overnight - stomach is usually a bit fluffy, but went pretty flat due to weight loss from morning sickness.  Then just this afternoon, I noticed a bump!

post #39 of 69

I think I have a bump!  It's definitely something.  I am 8 weeks, and they say the uterus should be the size of a grapefruit by now.  So, I think my "guts" are getting pushing up!  I can't put on my jeans any more (even my big baggy ones).  Like Birdie, I am living in skirts (work) and stretch pants (home).  :)

post #40 of 69

Nothing yet, but I'm due at the very end of the month. I'm always full on in maternity clothes by 10 weeks so I don't imagine I'll be able to hide it much past the beginning of Feb. (Hopefully hearing the hb then so we can announce)
