Anyone showing yet?
This is my 3rd pregnancy in 3 years and at 7w3d I'm already beginning to show. We haven't told anyone IRL except our parents, but we can't keep it hidden much longer. I'm hoping by dressing carefully when out anywhere I can keep it quiet for a few more weeks, but if anyone asks directly, then I'll tell them.
Aunaturalmama, my SIL is in her third pregnancy and was showing obviously enough by 9 weeks that they decided to announce on FB because it was obvious to look at SIL anyway. She's 4 weeks ahead of me and in the same boat as you!
If I didn't already have fat on my stomach, I would be showing I think. It's my second pregnancy. I think I will make it to 10-12 weeks (when I plan to tell everyone), but yeah I'm already wearing materinty bottoms and trying to wear stuff that doesn't draw attention to my tummy. My first pregnancy, I wasn't showing until 18 weeks or so, even then it was still more of a "Is she pregnant or fat?" showing for awhile. I have a long torso! But this time, my belly button is already starting to push out some, last time it didn't budge forever to the point where I was getting kind of upset about it. I'm just glad we told our parents/siblings right away because I know my Mom would figure out when we were visiting this weekend
Quinalla, I know that feeling! I am tall too and didn't "show show" until after 20 weeks. I then LIVED in the "is she pregnant or fat" zone for a long time. I remember going to a wedding and I was so excited because I finally felt that I looked pregnant enough to show off my bump. I wore a fitted dress for exactly this reason. Then I made a comment to a coworker (who I thought would know I was pregnant because word gets around the office never mind the fact that I felt that I looked obviously pregnant) that I could at least steal 1 sip of DHs wine even though I couldn't have a glass, and he asked why I couldn't drink wine! He was surprised I was pregnant! Then I felt like everyone must just think I'm fat in my tight little dress! lol. I am hoping that stage is much shorter this time!!
I'm not "showing" yet enough for anyone to notice, but I definetely can tell the difference and am avoiding tight/form fitting skirts and dresses at work. I'm starting to get a little tummy for sure. I am just hoping to not be obviously pregnant until after my first trimester screening, I don't really want to share with my boss or causal acquantances until after that.
nstewart, I think sometimes guys are more oblivious to those things. The ladies at the wedding could probably tell you were pregnant.
I feel like that's where I am. Although I feel like the bloat started fast this time. My SIL said she thought my back was out and making my posture bad (and therefore causing my tummy to pooch out) before we told her and that was at 4 weeks! yikes!
I don't think I qualify as showing yet but in the evenings I stick out of bit more. Here is a pic of me around 4. I am kind of curious to take another around 9 and see how they compare. Not that I am pretending that everything was flat before...it wasn't. (ETA: that picture is bigger than I thought it would be .)
CoBaby you look terrific!
I am not showing yet, but I am not thin either. I have the long torse, short legs effect. I can also feel my uterus already, I am not sure why I can feel it so soon this time, but it is the 5th pregnancy, and of those previous 4, there were 3 that were passed the first trimester. I am concerned I will get too big too fast so I am making sure I walk every day. I do not want another pre-eclamptic/eclamptic pregnancy (or all the other complications I had the last time). I did lose a lot of weight I had gained with DD before leaving the hospital (all fluid) except for 10 lbs. But I felt horrible! I want to be moving around a lot at the end of the pregnancy, not stuck on bedrest! And I want to BF much longer then the 6 months I did with DD. All of this I *think* will play an important role in addition to actually knowing I have RA and celiacs. Which will hopefully I mean I have a healthier baby too.
I do think being a shortie definitely makes me pop quicker. I'm 5ft2in, so there isn't a whole lot of space to hide a growing belly. I also didn't have my pre-pregnancy figure back completely either, so that also is contributing to the belly.
I gained about 40lb with DS1 and lost almost all of it in the first couple of weeks. With DS2 I gained about 20lb and again lost most of it in the first couple of weeks, but that last 5lb kept coming and going over and over during the last year. I've already gained 7lb this time, but I know once the nausea goes away and I can stick the the Brewer's Pregnancy Diet the weight gain will stop for a while and then happen quite slowly for the rest of the pregnancy. I've found the more protein I eat the less weight I gain throughout the pregnancy. Right now I really can't eat much of anything due to nausea, so my weight is crazy.
Yeah, being short and/or having a short torso definitely does make it more obvious. I have a very short aunt and when she was pregnant with twins it was ridiculous, she scared everybody when she was out in public, thinking she was surely going to go into labor any second.
I have been so struggling with the bloating ... I've minimized carbs (cut out grains/sugars completely) and working on avoiding poor food combinations, which seems to help. Also eating less frequently to give food time to digest ... I'm going to be 8 wks tomorrow and sometimes I think I look showy, but mostly it's just bloat. This is my third pregnancy, second child. I'll have to get a picture soon!!
I know it will come soon enough it's just one of the things I look forward to in the first trimester. I might feel like crap but the rest of me isn't huge yet and I actually have boobs. Haha. It's the simple things in life for me.
I actually found a great bra the other day that is all soft and lined (I'm always cold so my nipples are always sticking out, lined bras are a must). It might be a just around the house bra though because I'm not sure how supportive it will be. I just CANNOT handle underwires when I am pregnant.
I'm the opposite, haha. With my little one, I went from a B to a DD seemingly overnight, and I wanted my Bs back!!! This go, I started at D and am already at DD and my shoulders huuurt. :( Silly boobs!
I told DH last night that I thought I was starting to have a bump and asked if he thought I was getting one too. He said "There is no good answer, is there?" I said the honest one would do. So, I guess I am not showing enough for anyone else to tell as he said he didn't see anything. I can tell though. But, I guess this is good news as I'm not ready for the world to know quite yet. Still, I'm going to steer clear of tight shirts and dresses at work!
