Anyone else showing?

Anyone? 

 

I figured I'd pop a bit early since this is number 4 and I've gained about 70lbs with each pregnancy but I feel kind of silly at this point..  I'm about 6 and a half weeks or so and I already have a pretty nice bump- like 3-4 months in size.  We wanted to wait to tell people, as well as hold off on pulling out the maternity wear but couldn't since I look so obviously knocked up.  Can any of you make me feel better?  Please tell me that some of you are huge too!  loveeyes.gif

This is #3 for me and my jeans are very uncomfortable. Like, I am contemplating going to take them off right now. lol.gif

 

I can't say I have a discernible bump. I have a diastasis from my first two pgs and I kinda always look a little bit pg. eyesroll.gif But now my belly is way bigger!!

This is #3 for me too, and while not noticeably pregnant...I am feeling bigger at this point than I have in either of my other pregnancies :( bleh... I've already stored away some of my pants

Oh, I'm huge! This is #3 for me, too, and I will have been pregnant for nearly 2 years straight by the time this little one is born. I never completely got out of my maternity jeans from my last term pregnancy, and not even my regular "fat" jeans will fit at this point. I had to pack up all of my non-maternity shirts a few days ago because they were all too short and I had belly showing. My uterus is defeated, I think. It has just fallen right out and said "to heck with you". LOL. I look at least 4 months pregnant - with twins! Ha!

I'm glad I'm not alone!

 

my non-pregnant weight is around 110, so once I have a bump it is very there..

I've been whining about this for about a week.lol.gif  Here is my 4wk 5dy shot

I'm not discernably (sp?) pregnant but my belly button is kinda shallow. This is my fourth and I lose my belly button earlier each time. I feel fat and bloated but I don't think I look it though.

I definitely look pregnant right now, I'm 5 weeks. I am just hoping that it is early pregnancy bloating, and not twins like my husband jokingly suggests.

My husband thinks that's a funny joke too!  Me, not so much.

Yeah, mines been joking about the same thing.  One baby at a time please.  My midwife thought I could possibly have twins with my ds's pregnancy, but I think that was just a little bit of higher blood sugar starting to kick in and he was putting on weight faster than usual.  I measured bigger my whole pregnancy, hoping to measure where I need to this time and have a small baby I can just push out in 5 minutes.  lol.gif  Hey, I can dream can't I?

This is my first pregnancy but fairly slim with a very long lean torso, and I swear its not just bloating, but I have like a "hump" at my waistline. Im not sure if its normal or not. Im about 7 weeks and think I have actually lost a pound or two of muscle loss from a decrease in my weight lifting, etc. My husband jokes about the twins too. Considering Im completely overwhelmed with carrying 1 child seems to me at this point, I unleash a fury of pregnant emotional fury at him for hoping for twins.

Twins run in my family (great grandmother had two sets, my grandma being in the first and she went on the have one set) so twin jokes don't go over too well with me since it seems so much more possible duck.gif

 

My last was a UC and with how much weight I put on I was constantly feeling around and checking to make sure there wasn't another hb- I even went to the midwifery college and had a bunch of students examine me to be sure lol.gif

Oh yes, I'm totally huge already, at only 5 weeks!  I swear, I started showing the day after I got the positive test.  I always show early, and am big for how far along I am, and this is my fourth pregnancy--it seems I show earlier every time.  I do have a tilted uterus, which I was told could have something to do with it, in combination with a small frame.  We haven't told anyone yet either, but I'm sure it won't be long before people start to wonder and I have to start pulling out the maternity clothes.

My pants are getting tighter already too! My husband is a fitness professional, so he is kinda hard on me about that stuff, pointing out that maybe I should start working out again (I stopped when we started trying in Dec). Ugh, I hate it when he gets like that. Can't they just happily let us get fat? I don't want eggs for breakfast, I want pie!! Luckily, for all of my bloating, I am not showing yet. This will be our third child too, so I am sure people won't be as excited to hear the news, we are trying to keep it under wraps for a couple months (or as long as I am not showing). We'll see how long that lasts!

Ugh yes!  This is my 4th and right now I just look like I'm putting on quite a bit of weight in the tummy area.  I also don't think we're going to be able to wait to tell people either. 

post #17 of 58

Asprague- Im so sorry he is hard on you about it! I have the opposite problem. My husband wants me to gain 10 pounds... like yesterday. He is completely obsessed about having a baby and worried my skinny body isnt holding enough nutrients. He made me a quesadilla the other night at like 10 pm and I noticed it had like twice the cheese as his did. Then when I finished mine he gave me the rest of his :) Ugh... Im going to come out of this weighing twice as much..

post #18 of 58

I stepped on the scale this morning and certainly haven't gained any weight, but I have noticed some changes. I feel super bloated and my jeans don't feel comfortable anymore, so I've been wearing my "fat" clothes. My husband is a pastor and I'm hoping we can get away with not really telling anyone locally until next month. Friends and family will know sooner, but I'm hoping my fat clothes will take me through February. I had to start wearing maternity pants toward the end of my first trimester with my first. With DS I had to start telling people very early because I had severe morning sickness and had to explain to people why I was going to the bathroom every five minutes and no I wasn't contagious.

post #19 of 58

I have gained 4 pounds in two weeks AND I have either gone to the gym or the pool 10 out of the last 14 days.  I don't remember gaining weight this fast last time... 

post #20 of 58

I've been about the same weight, but need to go to MIL's and verify if that is still that way.  I feel like I've gained and I expected to once I went back on insulin, but so far I haven't. 

 

I'm showing even more now and hope I don't have to break out the maternity pants too soon.  I pulled them out at 7 weeks last time.  My butt and thighs are growing and I know I won't be able to get them on soon.
