A few days ago, my belly looked huge for being 11 weeks pregnant.
Now it feels softer and has looked smaller for a few days. I'm wondering why...
Is that cause to worry?
Yes. I am barely showing some days and flat as a board the next (Ill be 12 weeks on monday). And yuck on the guts! Luckily Im not showing enough for anyone to touch my stomach. I would have a hard time is someone was feeling my bulging guts !! haha.
I bought a ton of pregnant pants I cant wait to wear, and I am sooo not showing enough wear them. I am actually looking forward to showing, not just for the clothes, but to actually feel like I have to something to show for the last 3 months of feeling terrible!
It is a "food baby". In the morning, I have a fairly flat stomach. By bedtime, I look 4-5 months pregnant (depending on which of the boys I'm comparing it to)!! Since we aren't telling much of anyone yet, I have to be careful what I wear around my family in the evenings. Luckily I only see my mom every couple of weeks. Even when I'm not pregnant, I get a food baby by bedtime but it isn't nearly this big!
I found this on another board and I HAD to share! :) http://www.msichicago.org/whats-here/exhibits/you/the-exhibit/your-beginning/make-room-for-baby/interactive/
I'm finding the same thing. With my first pregnancy I didn't start showing until around 21 weeks or later. This time I have days where I look about 4 or 5 months pregnant and then days when I just look like I've gained a large spare tire. One morning I walked into my sons gymnastics class and my friend, who knew already, whispered to me "You look pregnant"! I'll be 12 weeks this Tuesday but I've already told all of my mom friends, I'm having a really hard time hiding it most days, normally my stomach is fairly flat so even the spare tire look is out of character for me, so I just gave up and told those that I'm around a lot. There's only so many cold days when I can wear baggy hoodies and I discovered babydoll tops just make it worse. On top of the belly my boobs are an entire cup size bigger already, I'm not a big person (5'0, 107 lbs normally) but I'm now up to a D cup! DH loves it of course, but they're getting in my way, I feel like I have boulders on my chest! Some of my friends mentioned, after I told them, that they had noticed that first and thought I had found some really amazing pushup bras.
definitely have noticed this. first thing in the morning, it's much smaller, and by bedtime it's grown quite a bit--even more if i've been on my feet alot during the day. i know alot of it is bloating--but i tend to show early anyways. there are days where i look like i'm 6 months pregnant, and i'm only 10 weeks lol.
Wow! That was *so* cool. Thanks for sharing.
That is SO neat.
Thanks for sharing! I think I'm right at the point between 12/13 weeks except I have some extra love handles that make it look less attractive.
I was feeling my belly yesterday and found this hard lump in a line near my pelvis.. I realized a few hours later it was CONSTIPATION that was so hard I could feel it palpitating my stomach. OUCH! Definitely with out bodies geared to extract as many nutrients as possible from our food constipation and thus abdominal bloating is more common.
Oh man, me too. Right now I just look thick as a brick! Not at all this cute round little bump...just thick right through the WHOLE middle! Fitting in some of the smaller banded maternity stuff and none of my pants at all. This is my 3rd baby and both of my other kids I didnt show till I was 5 months. What a change, but Im also a bit older and a bit heavier than I was then! :-)
With my last pregnancy I wore a cotton tank top over my bikini. I figure why not embrace the belly? I'm only pregnant for a very short time in the grand scheme of things ... and heck it's the best I'll look in a two piece ... well ... probably ever. Another option would be to wear a supporting maternity tank in a matching color to a two piece bottom ... kind of the best of both worlds.
