Who is starting to show??

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

I'm six weeks along with my 2nd pregnancy and I've got a tiny bump starting. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that notices it. My husband said he thought he could tell a difference. But I didn't start showing until much MUCH later with my first.

 

So....who else is seeing some tummy changes?

Oh boy. This is my third pregnancy but the last one was 3.5 years ago and i'm very active. My abs are strong so i'm hoping i can 'hide' this one up until at least 12 weeks, if not even longer. So i'm not showing yet.

That only strengthens my twin suspicion. I'm pretty active too and my last pregnancy was almost 6 years ago.

I'm starting to show! I'm only 5 weeks! I don't know what is going on. I am sure no one else will really notice, except everyone knows that we are TTC... or were... and i want to keep it secret for a bit more. This is my third and my last was 18 months ago.

I am mostly looking "bloated" jeans are a smidge tight... But I am not looking different to those who are in the dark about this pregnancy!

I've had a little bit of a belly since I had DD 2 1/2 years ago, but I feel like it has gotten a little bigger (or at least changed shape a bit).  It also feels kind of firmer to me.  DH isn't so sure. shrug.gif

I'm maybe a bit jealous of those who show early! But only sort of ;)  I might have some extra 'padding' already on my belly ( ;) ), but I think that mostly due to my long torso (I'm 5'11") that I just don't show for the longest time!  It takes until AT LEAST 20 weeks (probably closer to 30?!) to really have much of a belly at all! But that's okay too.

 

I can't wait until the belly threads start popping up :) I love baby bellies!!

I feel like I'm showing. Because of my body shape, I always look a little pregnant. I think I'm mostly being bloated and maybe gaining fat, but I always gain in my belly, so it could easily be interpreted as showing. Probably doesn't help that my abs never went back after my third pregnancy. I'm a little worried that I'm just getting fat! Of course, my boobs are already bigger too. That definitely didn't happen this early in the past.

Yeah, when I told DH the other day that I thought I was starting to show already, he said he thought it was just from Christmas. eyesroll.gif

I'm not even 5 weeks yet and my pants are already digging into my pelvis which has rounded out a bit. I have already opted for pregnancy jeans just for comfort sake. Belly wise, i have always had a little pot belly, and it get's bigger when i consume lactose, so it's always been up and down, but ever since having DD, it's mostly up. Or out. And pregnancy bloats me big time, so yeah, i would say i am showing a little bit already. Not baby obviously, but the bloat that comes with pregnancy.

The area above my pubic bone is a little more pooched out, probably because I'm so darned bloated and because my bladder *may* be running out of room.

I cannot WAIT to start showing redface.gif It didn't happen with DD until 20-22weeks, though, so I might have a bit of a wait! I am kind of flabby/bloated, but that's no consolation!

Showing since about week 5...Fella noticed it first when we were canoodling one night...I was just chalking it up to water retention, but sure enough, I palpated and there is definitely a uterus poking out. I am 7w now and was doing Yoga a few nights ago and really noticed when I was rocking on my back...felt like I had a huge super ball in my lap as I rocked.

This is my 5th pregnancy though, so my uterus knows what it needs to do and doesn't fight it...

 

I can only imagine what I'll be like at 12 weeks and 20 weeks...holy mackerel!

I couldn't get my jeans buttoned this AM.  I have a pair of maternity jeans that I could wear, but I don't want to be outed yet as I am not telling anyone.  I work at a Maternity/Baby/Cloth diaper store, and I know they will notice there right away.

After DS was born my belly skin never went back so I already have a bit of a floppy tummy area that now looks filled. I'm bloated and gassy like crazy and trying to tame this hunger. DH just said my belly looks more like it does when af arrives. By the way, I showed rather early with DS and by the time he was born people thought I had more then 1 in there.

I just swapped sweatpants because the waist was right. I don't think I was really tight, last time I lost weight in the first trimester, but when I am in early pregnancy I HATE having things snug around my belly. I gave away most of my maternity things because we were done. Which super sucks because DD2 was due in September also and I had all the right clothes for the seasons!!
post #19 of 24

I didn't start showing with DS until almost 6 months along, but I am definatly showing with this pregnancy already. I think it's due in part to me not being in very good shape before I got pregnant, so I was already carrying around some extra weight to begin with, and in part to the twins aspect. But yeah, showing and my jeans are too tight. I've been living in pajamas and sweatpants, and really need to get out and get some nicer yoga pants or a pair of maternity jeans.

People are already commenting on my stomach, saying I look pregnant. I'm only 8 weeks! It's embarrassing.
