I am estimating I am a few days into my 5th wk. I had been having 45 day cycles and I had tested negative on day 28 then positive on day 45, so I just used 4 wks before getting the positive as the first day of last cycle for due date purposes (if that makes sense). I totally have a little bump on my belly already!! Like when you're in that awkward stage where it looks like you're gaining weight but no one would really know you're prego yet. This is my 2nd, I know you're supposed to show earlier but I didn't expect anything yet. I'm just curious if anyone else is in this same boat, or maybe I'm further along than I thought I was?

SAHM to my #1 little miss (9/11/09) and have been TTC since 06/10 (with 1 loss 3/12/11).We do all the usual "crunchy" things!I'm typing from my iPhone so please excuse any errors.

I've got the uncomfortable pms bloated belly. My jeans still fit, just a little snugger. The last time I carried this long was 7 years ago so I wasn't sure if I would start showing so quickly this time. At this rate I'll be showing very soon!

When I first wake up and havent eaten anything I swear I can feel a little "bump" already! Once I eat though its just fat ol jiggly bloat. The pair of pants I wore to work today probably wont fit but for a few more days.

Yep! Right here! Of course, I already had a little "momma belly." But I'm having constant growing pains and most of my pants are too tight when I button then. This is number three, so I assumed it would happen quicker.

This is number 3 for me too, but I really didnt think I'd get so round looking so quick. I looked at least 3 or 4 months pregnant in the dress I wore to work today and Ive gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks since finding out Im pregnant.

While I haven't started showing yet (at 4 weeks), I was starting to show by 7 weeks with my DD.  I was out of all of my regular pants by 8-10 weeks, so I suspect I'm only weeks away!

 With my son's pregnancy i started to wear maternity around 10wks.   This is my 6th pregnancy but baby #3.  If i don't suck my stomach in i look really pregnant.

I'm not, but I generally don't until sometime after I'm out of the first trimester.  This is my 4th baby.

I'm 5.5 weeks and I'm wearing maternity pants today! Only because I gained like four pounds in the last two weeks and none of my regular pants fit - not even my "fat" pants. So I don't think I'm showing, but I do think I'm getting bigger :)

I had a bit of a belly anyway, so now I'm just more comfortable letting hang out. Between that and the bloating I look like I did at 3 months preg with my first! lol

I am 6.5 weeks and my biggest comfy pants are becoming too tight.  Not showing - just growing.

I second the "not showing - just growing" comment.  None of my pants fit comfortably. It's sort of distressing, since I am so early on, and so, very hungry all the time.

Yes!  I was just wondering the same thing.  My stomach won't go flat!  This is #2, and much much more of an early appearance than #1.  I don't have a scale, so I have no idea how much weight I've gained- but I felt the need to start eating meat again (really helping with my nausea), and I've definitely put on a few lbs.

I just found my new best friend - dresses :)

Today I'm wearing a dress to work w/thick tights since it just snowed and this is the first time I've been comfortable and actually felt like I looked good in over a week! I think I need to find a nice stretchy black skirt. My maternity pants are still huge in the stomach but my regular ones won't close!

Ditto. Sometimes I joke that I'm just dressing up my fat belly now!

I look about 3-4 months pregnant. Monday at work, someone actually asked me when I was due. Not if I was pregnant. Like, I look so pregnant that it's just a given! (Besides my mama belly, I'm fairly thinish/ average size, so I don't just look big all over.) I feel like a weirdo when I tell people I'm due in November!

 

I literally can not button a single pair of pants. I'm already sooooo tired of the Belly Band. But I'd feel silly wearing maternity pants! I did score an awesome maternity skirt from the thrift store that fits perfectly. Not my style at all, but I don't care. I'll make it work!

Same here!

I looked a couple months pg even pre-pg, because my stomach muscles split with my last 2. Pre-pg, I could suck in enough that I looked ok. Now, it's too uncomfortable, and I feel ok looking pg, since I am. lol I do think my belly has rounded out a bit though. I'm almost 7 weeks.

I am 7 weeks and this is my first.  I swear I am starting to show.  I have a bit of a belly anyway so it has been hard to tell if it is my imagination or not but I can feel it now too.  It feels harder.

This is my 3rd, and its like my body knew what was happening and took it upon itself to relax every muscle and joint in my body.  That and the bloating, and at only 4 weeks I'm looking like a chubster.

 

Its nice to hear Im not the only one!
