We don't have a scale so I honestly can't say if I have gained weight and I don't really want to know :LOL I have shoved my jeans to the back of the closet where they will stay for the next year and gotten out maternity clothes so they can be aired and washed. After going through clothes I have also decided I will either be wearing maternity clothes at about 2-3 months or I need to go buy some more elastic waist shorts. I was also going through the maternity clothes making a list of what all I need to buy. I spent some time looking at maternity clothes patterns Saturday and I just barely managed to stop myself from buying several.

I haven't gained weight, but I have changed in shape. Just above or beside my hips bones is starting to fill in...

I haven't noticed any weight gain eyt, but I'm not anticipating gaining very much. W/ DS I gained 25lbs, NONE in the first trimester. W/ this pregnancy, I'm chasing a toddler around all day, :LOL. I'm still fitting into my regular jeans, although, by the end of the day, they do feel a little snug

I haven't gained yet, but I am losing my waistline rapidly! I noticed last night during sex that my belly is NOT as flat as it was, clearly a baby belly! :

Wow, congrats that you can stay awake for sex! I told dh to catch me in a few weeks!

My pile of "doesn't fit anymore" clothes is about three times the size of my "I can still wear " clothes, and I really trying to stay out of the full fledged maternity untill the second trimester, but we shall see!

No weight gain but all my jeans are starting to get a bit tighter. I was hoping to hold out a little longer.

6.5 lbs!!! and I can't button/zip my jeans so I do the rubberband through the loophole trick on the top button. My tops are all too short for me and yes, I've started to wear my size S maternity jeans!

No weight gain yet, which isn't suprizing since eating is such a bloody chore!

I defintaly had to clean out my clothes and box up everything that just wasn't going to fit anymore over the weekend... anything that's at all tight in the waist or the abdomen is already feeling awful to wear, so I'm stuck with two pairs of stretchy slacks and one pair of loose low-rise jeans... I guess it's time to start looking at maternity clothes after all.

I *thought* I had a weight gain...or I think I pooched out a little (maybe my first pregnancy destroyed all remaining ab muscles ) I'm cool with it - I'm underweight due to BFIng so love packing it on.

I don't think I've gained much (I don't own a scale), but my belly IS sore enough with the muscle strething mild crampy feelings that my jeans & tight things hurt! It sucks, I don't want to run out & buy maternity clothes when I'm a whole 14 days pregnant!! :LOL I've certainly gained size in the boobage area, though!

Waist--what waist??!!

Partly I am at my heaviest weight ever before even getting pregnant, so I'm starting out feeling pretty big anyway. But I did in fact have a waist as recently as this past Saturday!! Before I found out I went and bought some new clothes because I hardly had anything that fit. I bought several pairs of pants. That was on 3/1. Yesterday I wore one of them which was rather loose (too loose, in fact) in the waistband when I bought it, now it's getting a little tight!! I was hoping to blame DH for putting them on high in the dryer and shrinking them :LOL but turns out he read the care instructions and it's just my waist! I don't know if I've gained any weight and there's nothing too much going on in the belly department besides the head start I already had on a pregnant-looking belly (!) but I can tell that my waistline is rapidly disappearing and definitely my breasts are getting bigger, including the sides. I am reasonably average-tall (5'6") but I am so short waisted that there is only about an inch between the top of my hip bone and the bottom of my rib cage. So I fear there will be nowhere to go but out and I'll be big as a house in short order!! Oh well, I'm still really excited!! I'm not "dieting" or trying to lose weight, but I'm cutting all the crap out of my diet and starting to walk and exercise more, so hopefully I will be able to exchange some "pudge" for baby weight and muscle mass!

Okay, I'm only 5 weeks 3 days and I can barely fit into my jeans anymore! What's up with that?!?!?!

my jeans feel VERY tight, which actually is the culprit for any nausea i might experience...when I put on sweats I feel a lot better. I think I need to go find a pare I can wear in public :

I haven't gained any weight yet, I don't think. But I'm sitting here w/ my pants unzipped. :LOL I really want to avoid maternity clothes for as long as possible. I was so SICK of all my maternity clothes by 7 months the last time.

I have gained 3 pounds and honestly I think 2 1/2 went straight to my chest. My boobs are huge and sore. I am overweight ot begin with so I hope I can keep my weight gain down and make sure the baby gets everything he needs. They always say baby take shis first and momma gets the leftovers. I just want to make sure ther aren't too many leftovers. BUt I have been ravenous these past 2 days. I don't think I stopped eating except when I was asleep or going pee the gazillion times a day I do now. Not that I'm complaining, trust me.
