anyone gain weight yet or notice a diff. in the waist? - Page 2

post #21 of 31
ive noticed that some of my pants feel pretty tight.. i dont have a scale and dont really care to weigh myself every few days.. im way less hungry than usual and then starving but i cant eat much ( is that weird?) so i dunno.. i doubt ive gained weight but i feel a little belly growing! i cant wait to have a big one!

I'm 5 weeks along and my lower belly is definitely pooching a bit. My normal jeans are tight in the waist so I've moved on to my stretchy jeans that were biggish in the waist before. I haven't dared weight myself because I tend to get neurotic about it, but I suspect I've put on water weight because I'm SO thirsty all the time! With DS I gained 50lb and had a huge belly so I expect no less

This is so wierd, I'm 4 weeks, 4 days, & my belly has totally pooched out. I can't believe it! I mean, I look pregnant! I'm normally flat bellied, AND this is my 3rd pregnancy, but wow! I was shocked when I 1st noticed it days ago. I can't wear any of my normal pants unless they're loose and the top botton's undone. I actually had to buy some maternity clothes this week (dresses so far, I'm still not big enough for full on maternity pants).

I didn't show at all until 24 weeks (!) with my dd, & then was shocked when I showed at 8 weeks with my ds, so I guess it makes sense that I'd show this early since they say everything happens sooner with subsequent pregnancies. But, wow, it's so early, I wasn't expecting this!! My partner's been teasing me & saying that it's because we're having twins. It's fabulous having a baby belly to feel already though.

Ugh. All my pants are too tight to wear without causing discomfort, but when I weigh myself I weigh the EXACT SAME, even a little LESS. so weird. My stomach is spreading on all sides, what I call the Polish Life Raft. You know, the genetics probably remember the famines and such, just trying to make sure the baby will survive. And telling me to get more potatoes and beets in my diet...mmm...in creamy dill sauce....

There is one. It's called veggie nicoise salad, but my husband and I refer to it as "that beet and potato salad." warning - it takes some prep work but it lasts for a while. mmm.

UGH! Seriously, I'm growing out of all my bigger jeans right now. I can't button them. The maternity crap is too big though. Plus, my butt is my fine point and none of the maternity jeans enhance that!

It's too cold for skirts or dresses yet and I feel like such a frump in the lounge pants that I sleep in!!! I will be 7 weeks with #5.

I found this at a local maternity store today. A little expensive, but worth it for the comfort of wearing my usual clothes and not needing to buy a new wardrobe yet. The only bad thing is that I got a size 2 instead of size 1, which is what I needed. So now I have to go back again...but it is nice that they have two sizes (for sizes below size 10, and then for 10+)

I'm glad it's not just me. I'm 6 weeks today, and yesterday my belly got huge. Which is really weird, because we think I've lost at least half a stone (7 lbs) with the constant nausea- I've only actually been sick a few times, but can't eat anything much. I got bought a pair of Thai fishermans trousers though, and they're fantastic and so comfortable- just wrap them round your middle, tie them up and pull a t-shirt over the top- truly brilliant AND I think they have enough room in there to see me through most of the summer as well.
