iamkateiam- Are those spiderman sheets? Awesome!



So, I know I havent posted a pre belly photo, but for the record. I've gained about 2 lbs so far, but my belly has the shape of a 6 month pregnant lady. It's insane. I am already getting people asking me when Im due in public!!! I know the comments usually come for me about 6 months of "are there twins in there? are you sure?" This time I get to say yes!

They are spiderman sheets!  Our guests get to sleep in style (and my hubby is a big ol' comic book geek stillheart.gif).

This is my first and although I feel bigger and 'wider' I don't think I'm really showing yet.  This was me first thing this morning at 9.5 weeks.  By the end of the day though my stomach is twice as big due to bloat (lovely).

Holly, when are you due?  I'm having twins too, and I'm feeling huge even though I've lost weight! lol, so hard to hide it.

Baileyandmikey,
I'm due, or I guess it's supposedly common for twin moms to say "my 40 week date is", Feb 7th.
You should join us over in the twin thread in the multiples forum. I think we have FOUR twin moms in this ddc so far! We are going to have to just start our own Twin mom thread here in this DDC!

Hey ladies-

here is my 12 week belly.  It is hard to see since I am so white... haha.  I am still down 5 lbs, but I have been eating the last few days, so I imagine I will start gaining soon.

This is me at 4 weeks. Yep I was feeling a little bloated. Lost 30 lbs right before this pregnancy but still have the little baby fat belly.. maybe it will be hard to tell when i am showing :(

9 weeks in this one. I feel pretty bloated around my hips now. I can't even wear my jeans anymore already. lol Not sure if anyone else can tell I am showing.. but I can for sure FEEL it. HA!

Exactly 12 weeks - I feel huge - bloated, constipated - none of my clothes fit well. Goodbye size 4/6! mecry.gif

This is my 11 week picture, i'll be 12 weeks tomorrow!  I don't think it looks much bigger than 8 weeks, but it feels different for sure.  I've gained nothing.

JessNP, I was SUPER uncomfortable from weeks 6-10. Totally bloated, constipated. Miserable. Then I started taking probiotics again and they were MAGICAL. My stomach actually shrunk back to pre-bloat size and to this day (12 weeks) I'm still not showing and have been totally regular on the bathroom front. Plus, probiotics are good for the immune system. Might be worth a try?

Waywornwanderer- that is a fantastic idea! What brand are you taking?

12 weeks!

You have all got to be kidding me. I'm jealous! I'm very very "old" (39) and on my fifth baby, and my belly is flat as an iron at 11 weeks, aside from the usual fat store I've been carrying around since my early 30's. I won't even look pregnant to my own self until 16 weeks.... sigh.... To friends by 20 weeks; strangers more like 24. Oh and short-waisted doesn't even begin to describe me at 5'1". 

 

I've gained a couple of pounds and it's in my face and thighs. You'd think by baby #5.....?? I guess it's good because I don't want the attention yet, but I feel so sick I'd like a wee bit of public sympathy. ;)

 

I've always had nice strong abs but this is bordering on ridiculous.

 

 

edited to add photo: yes there is some roundness in my mid-abdomen but that's a combo of muscle, fat, skin, and intestines. Truly, my uterus is still below the waistband of my skirt and will be for some time!

Here's 12 weeks!  I wish I could say the belly is baby, but it's just bloat at this point.  I'd also be interested in the probiotic info!

 

 PS- ignore the mess in the background.  We're doing some rearranging of rooms trying to figure out where our little baby is going to fit in the house (c:

I think everyone just carries differently and shows differently. I am also 5'1" ;) 120 lbs, but definitely don't have strong abs! ;) I always get a belly and that's pretty much it during pregnancy. Also, my pic was taken in the evening, after dinner.. it is much smaller in the morning ;)

This was taken at 12 weeks and 1 day. At my last prenatal visit, I was told that I've lost 5 lbs in a month. My response (once I collected my jaw off the floor) was "WHERE?!"

post #100 of 593

I use Jarrow Formulas Jarro-Dophilus EPS, just because I have a TON that my MIL sent me. I've heard there's a good one you can pick up at Whole Foods in the refrigerated section... not sure on the brand.
