Do I realllly have a baby bump already!?!?!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This is my first, if I don't count the m/c, and I'm 9w5d today and I swear to God I already have a baby bump! It's there in the morning, there at night and I can't suck it in. I in no way expected to be able to tell a difference before like 4 months. I don't think anyone looking at me would be able to tell yet unless I pointed it out but I can definitely see it and so can DH. I don't know if it's bc I'm petite -- 5' 2" and had a 24-25 in waist pre-pregnancy -- but I feel like I'm going to look enormous at this rate. 


Anyone else showing this early with your first??!

This is my second pregnancy and it is showing already. Enough for one of my girlfriend who did not know to get suspicious!

I showed early for my first pregnancy as well. I only learned I was expecting on week 9 but I remember I was concerned about my belly but I tought it was just regular weight gain. At 12 weeks I was obviously pregnant, enough for everybody to notice. I was convince I would be having twins. And then, from 4 to 7 months I hardly got bigger. I ended up not being that big at all for the last months of the pregnancy.


Now, this early showing is part bloating I think. And maybe the small figure (I am on the skinny size).

I've had two u/s so definitely confirmed there's just one baby in there! Maybe it's just bloating then for me, too. My stomach is always the last place I gain weight so to have a belly feels weird for me!

Yesterday I fastened my jeans with a hairtie, and by evening I had to take that off and pull out the belly band. I am 12 1/2 weeks now and look like I did at 17-18 weeks with my daughter.

Sounds normal to me. I'm pg with #5, 9w6d, and can easily feel my fundus above my public bone. I haven't had any scans so I can't say whether there's one or two, but previous singleton pregnancies have been much the same.

It's so amazing to have a real, tangible pregnancy symptom, I mean, I suffer from HG so that's a symptom I suppose, but feeling my uterus rising up is more fun.

I second that tabitha -- bump is definitely the funnest symptom smile.gif

I'm a petite gal myself 5'3" and short-waisted and my 1st pregnancy was apparent at around 10 weeks...

This time, not only have I been wearing maternity pants since I was 8 weeks, this past week (I'm 12 weeks, 4 days) I swear I'm feeling baby flutters! Any time I lie on my back or drink a cold beverage...butterfly wings in my tummy!
