4th Pregnancy Already Showing?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I am 5-6weeks pregnant with my 4th and am already showing. Has anyone else noticed showing this early?

I wish my bloating was actually showing so I'd feel less...well...FAT...but it's just run-of-the-mill bloating.

Your bean is really trying to make its presence known

Im not in your DDC but I was showing at around 6 weeks. We are checking for twins later this week (and nothing else). This will be #4 for me also.

Well, I'll let you know sometime next week as I'm only 4 1/2 wks.

Not much other than light cramping and nausea going on here

I don't think it's bloating because it's there in the morning too! I have always wanted twins but the clossest set in my family would be my great grandma on my dads side.

Hopefully the above will link you to a fun t-shirt that says just that

The other one I like says: Does this baby make me look fat?

I totaly know where you are coming from. When I got pregnant with DD(baby #2) I was 20 pounds heavyer to start out then with DS(#1) so I look fat and not pregnant. This time I am where I was befor I got pregnant with DS and am getting big at 6 weeks. I need a shirt that says something about being pregnant and not fat!

I'm glad that I'm not the only women that is dealing with this issue. My Husband keep saying "quit worrying about your belly I think it's cute" I'm not worried I'm just curious why!

I read something yesterday that said that you will start showing early the more babies you have b/c your uterus softens and expands more quickly as it "knows the drill."

Hi there, not in your ddc, but also expecting my 4th & I found that my pants got tight very quickly and I felt like I was showing by about 7-8 weeks. Actually that is when I had to buy some new pants which only lasted until around 12-13 weeks. I do feel and look bigger this time to me.

Hello...
I am new here
and this is #4
and also 4 1/2 5 weeksish and I can not button my pants at all. I having to do the old rubber band through the buttonhole and around the button. I was just asking some friends today about this very thing. I hope I do not contiune to grow as much in the next 6 weeks. My kids do not know yet and I wan to wait to tell them until at least 10-12 weeks. The older ones will figure it out if my belly keeps expanding at this rate.

My pants still fit but thats because I haven't bought pants in a few years and jsut put a belt on with them. I am just about not to need a blet though! Oh well I enjoy beign big and pregnant! My husband thinks its beautifull so thats all that matters! Have you got the "were you planing this" yet or maybe "you know how this happens right?"
post #14 of 23
Yep, I'm showing. I lost about 17 lbs before I got pregnant, so my old too big clothes are still too big, except in the belly. They are fine when I'm standing, but awful when I sit. Soooo...I got some maternity clothes at a couple local thrift stores. I just can't handle the digging into my belly.

Some of the pants are too big, but I just roll the elastic up. Better than too tight.

Oh, and this is baby #3.

I feel like there's a pack of doozers building something in my womb. I feel bloated and my clothes are a little snug. I'm stuck between wondering if I'm imagining it and being paranoid that I'm actually farther along than I think.

Yes. My jeans haven't fit me for three weeks! I was feeling so fat and bummed, tho I eat really well.

The OB told me the same thing. My body is smart.

This is my second, but my belly no longer "sucks in". I noticed the problem in bellydance class last week, and i'm glad there's a rational explanation. I am in my post-baby jeans now, because i'd rather have a little room than a muffin top.

I am sooo glad I'm not the only one. I am only six weeks with my second and I already have a belly that won't go away. I had a pretty flat stomach before hand, but now I have this little pooch right above my c-section scar. I don't want to wear maternity clothes already. I had bought a really cute dress for my sister's wedding in May, but the way I going I'm not going to be able to wear it.
