Can you remember at what point you started to look pregnant? How much sooner than your first? Just curious. :)

With #1 I probably started really showing (not just looking like I gained a couple lbs) around 18 or 19 weeks. With #2 I started showing around 16 or 17 weeks. This time around with #3 I started showing way earlier. I needed maternity pants since around 13 weeks. Non-pregnant I am thin- usually hovering around the low end of the "normal" weight range for my height.

sheesh, i was bloated from very very early on. i saw a change in my body at about 5 weeks. but no one else could tell i was pregnant until about 12weeks.. even then.. it was a tiny tiny bump and only those that knew me before, noticed that i was showing. i would say that definitely i looked like a preggo chick and not just someone who had too many pieces of cake around 18 weeks. 

with my first it was totally different.. i didnt show at all until 6 months and at about 8months my belly basically blew up like a balloon and it  was huge! my belly seems so much smaller this time around, but i definitely started showing earlier.


oh and i've definitely been wearing maternity pants since week 12

mommy to "mine" (7), "his" (5), and preggers with "ours" due march 2011!!!
