Yup, I start showing early and gaining weight like crazy (I usually gain 50lbs in the end).  I totally know what you mean.

I was feeling huge this past weekend.  I saw some friends who were remarking that, even though I'm only 16 weeks, I look much more pregnant than some of my friends who are more than 22 weeks pregnant.  Then . . . I had the mother of all bowel movements yesterday, and now I barely look pregnant and then I remembered it had been awhile since I'd had a movement, so it wasn't baby, it was poop!  Oh well.  I enjoyed it while it lasted, and I'm sure it won't be long before I'm obvious!

I'm giant.  I feel like I should have my own orbit.  I'm only 15 weeks- and yet I look about 5 months.

Some days, I look about 6 months pregnant. Other days, I just look fat... like I have a beer gut. 

 

Apparently, my ass thinks it's pregnant, too. It's getting bigger by the day, and it was plenty big to begin with.

 

Pair all this with crappy maternity clothes (if you're like me and don't want to spend the money for anything else) and a waddle and you get sexy!

Yes, I feel huge too. It's my 4th child and maybe that has something to do with it, but I was in maternity clothes at 10 weeks. All my friends keep saying "Oh, no, you don't even look pregnant!" which doesn't make me feel better because I imagine I just look fat then!

Ha ha!! So true!! I have the added bonus of getting a poorly done haircut a few weeks ago. The hairstylist went WAY to short for me face shape and, well, it's not good. So, frumpy clothes, groaning and grunting when I need to get up off a chair...and a bad haircut! I'm feeling hot.

Yeah... I'm starting to think that after this one, I should get my tupler technique on. because this diastasis is getting ridiculous. Looking at my profile in the mirror, and then laying on my back and looking at what my "baby bump" REALLY is, are too very different things!

I hear that!  In the morning I look "thicker" but in the evening my organs are practically falling out of my body and I look 7 months pregnant.  It's crazy.  I tried the Tupler Technique for several months after I had my son, but I fell off the bandwagon and never got my abs back together.  And then got pg again.  Sigh...

Thanks all. It helps knowing that I'm not alone.  The '___ weeks and not showing/gaining weigh't type threads were making me feel blah.

And this is totally me too.  DD is constantly asking me to get her things when we play and the up and downs just about wear me out. DH teases me when I oh so ungracefully plop on the couch at the end of the day.
