Having trouble hiding belly!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This is my third baby so I knew that it would be apparent much earlier than it was with the first (6 months before I "looked" pregnant) and the second (5 months before I "looked" pregnant).  But holy wow, at 3 months, I'm finding myself going to the stretchy pants and already if people were to take a look, they could easily tell I'm pregnant.  Usually my belly is quite flat and there's an obvious pouch to it now.  

 

Good thing we are finally telling DH's family this weekend (or I should say he is, they live in NJ and he's going down for a visit) because I'm tired of keeping this a secret and pretending that I'm "just tired" or "not feeling great" versus saying "yeah, it's because of this baby!"

 

Can't wait to welcome the second trimester this weekend!

I'm only 10 weeks so I have a ways to the 2nd trimester but I find it hard especially as the day progresses to hide my belly.

Relying on carefully chosen sweaters and shirts to cover up.  We don't plan on telling people for at least another month, hopefully the weather will stay cool so I have more options.  It's hard to camouflage a belly when it's 90 degrees out...

I am 9 weeks today and I just broke out my maternity pants this morning.  My belly has been poking out, more from bloating I am sure, but people have already noticed!  I told a few coworkers the other day because they basically called me on it.  This is my third also and I just gave birth last February so I am sure those factors have a lot to do with it.
