Another one here about to make the transfer to maternity clothes. I'm a SAHM so right now I'm just wearing nice stretchy clothes, BUT I can't go out in public with the clothes I wear around the house as I would look too much like a mess and also already look pregnant. I'm 6 weeks 3 days today and I already look like I'm about 4-5 months. In my defense this is my 4th pregnancy is a little over 3 years, and everything had not gone back into place fully since DS2 was born a year ago. However I still managed to last longer before reaching for the maternity clothes last time, and I only had 6 months between pregnancies last time (its 11 months this time.) I just need to give all the clothes a wash to freshen them up as they've been in a suitcase for the last 10 months, then they'll be ready to wear. I have a feeling we won't be able to keep this pregnancy to ourselves much longer since my belly is swelling up so much.
I do know that my bloated belly is mostly caused by gas at this point. I'm the same each time I get pregnant. As soon as my digestive system starts to slow down I start getting gas. I hardly ever get gas unless I'm pregnant. DH had never heard me burp until the first time I was pregnant. I start getting bloated with it before I even get a BFP, so we are usually sure the BFP is coming in a few days when I start burping a lot.
Along with the gas (which will last the whole pregnancy) I am definitely in the nausea zone. It comes on about lunch time and can last for the rest of the day. Its very unusual for me to actually be sick, but I feel nauseous for hours at a time. This will probably last until about 12-13 weeks, as that is when it went away previously. I have no appetite when nauseous, but force myself to eat knowing that eating protein does make it feel a little better. This is when I have to start eating small amounts every 2 hours (just like in the final weeks of pregnancy too.)
I also get pregnancy rhinitis (stuffy nose) and it has started earlier this time. Nothing cures it and it is liveable, but just another thing to add to making me feel uncomfortable.
