Pants really tight at only 9 weeks. Stomach super bloated. Is this about the time when people start feeling thicker around the middle? I've watched a few of my skinny friends not change at all until second trimester. Not so much for me. I've never gone through this and would love to hear how everyone is fitting in their pants at 9 weeks :)
Normal or Not?
i am 10 weeks with twins, and having a really hard time fitting in my clothes, which i wasn't expecting at all, starting out plus-sized. I expected to be in regular clothes until 16 weeks or so. yeah, no, i am going maternity shopping any day now. Fat can be squished around, but a full uterus can't.
There is nothing I hate more than pants shopping!
My first pregnancy I wore my normal jeans the whole time. Second one not so much - I like thrifting a lot and just kept going up in sizes until nothing fit comfortably, then lived the last few months in dresses. I was so huge! I am hoping maybe this baby will be a bit more dainty. I'm 8 weeks and I can fit in my normal pants, but they get uncomfortable by the end of the day.
I am a little heavier this fall/winter than I was last winter so I only have 1 pair of jeans that fit comfortably anyway. I have a couple that are higher waist that I can wear but certainly not comfortably and I am all about being comfy. I got a pair of maternity at a second hand and they are super cozy:) I've been wearing yoga type pants a lot too.
I was already getting ready to move up a pant size before getting pregnant, but the bloating is definitely moving things along quickly. Pants fit fine in the morning, can't keep them buttoned by afternoon. This is my first pregnancy and I am just past 9 weeks. I am a thrift store shopper so I am not worried about the price, but I am very short (4'11) and worried I am going to have a hard time finding pants to fit around the the middle that will still be short enough, it was already a battle. Any other short ladies have any tips or places to shop, without having to hem or get altered?
My stomach popped at 10 wks (11 tomorrow) and all this week I can feel my uterus popped above my pubic bone, my skin tightness/organs feel very tight down there. But on top of that, my actual stomach area is being pushed out stupid crazy. Never had that happen before and it's really weird. I don't like it much... lol
Thrift store shopper here and just waiting for warm weather to bikini this pregnancy. LOL!
With all these newly showing mamas, we need to get that "belly picture" thread updated, so we can document our growing buns. I too am guilty of not posting a picture there, but I must, as I am seeing that acquaintances who don't know I am pregnant keep staring at my belly, wondering, but politely not daring to ask...I just giggle to myself. I tried to take a picture of myself in the mirror, but I could not figure out how to get the flash to stop blaring in the mirror more than me. I've got to get DH to get on it for me.
