I'm 5 weeks 1 day pregnant and I have a second trimester belly already. I'm actually planning to get the box of maternity clothes from the attic over the weekend. What???
I think it's a combination of the fact that I had a pot belly already- I have PCOS and we all tend to have slender limbs and big tummies- and that pregnancy hormones and my digestive system don't get along. I had horrible morning sickness both pregnancies, starting around 6 weeks. (I am enjoying food now while I still can.) I don't have much nausea yet but I have extreme bloating, esp in the evenings. I feel like I could pop my belly with a pin. And the rest of the day it just feels very churny and at times acidic.
Anyway, I love being pregnant but wish I could fast forward fast the first trimester. I look so pregnant that people are starting to give me that belly stare, where they're like "Is she??" but don't want to say anything out of politeness. It's too early to tell everyone except close friends and family though. I'm really tempted to start wearing obvious maternity clothes and be vague about how pregnant I am, or just outright lie. Heheh.
Anyone else experiencing this?
