Okay, I know this sounds unbelievable because I'm not quite six weeks yet, but over the weekend I started noticing that it was harder and uncomfortable to keep my belly sucked in (which I always do, diastasis and all that).

Today, I asked dh (who had been gone all weekend) if he could see a difference, and he said that it looked different, that my belly is smooth and rounded now. He was being nice...dd was 10 lbs 9 oz and I have tons of extra skin down there, but it's starting to smooth and stick out!!!!!! is this for real? I knew it would be early but this is freaky!

I've been SUPER bloated the last few days! I look like I'm about 5 months pregnant! :LOL Too bad it's all left-over pooch from 3 other babies.

I'm having to wear my maternity pants tho. I can wear my regular jeans but they fit reeeeally weird on me.

I tried a pair of pants this morning that didn't work. It seems awfully early for this! If I suck it in and stand up straight I look like normal, but if I relax and slouch I look about 5 months pregnant. I'm getting worried someone will guess before I'm ready to tell.

Well, luckily I lost about 40 pounds last year so I have four sizes of bigger clothes to choose from when I need to :LOL At least I had a few months to enjoy being skinny! The good thing is that I will probably need to get all new maternity clothes this time. Dh is thrilled. .

Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy!

Well I had to run out tonight to buy some trousers - mine were simply too uncomfortable to wear for even a moment longer.

Luckily the Liz Lange jeans don't look much like maternity jeans so I think I may still be able to keep the secret for a touch longer. Except that my mom is coming to visit tomorrow and I am certain I won'e be able to keep the news from her.

How very weird to be shopping in the maternity section at 5 weeks! But, glad I am not alone.

I don't think I've actually popped so much as stopped sucking in my left-over baby flab from Cole

As far as pants, I wear my jeans pretty low rise anyway, so my belly just sort of flops over the waistband...attractive I know, but still pretty comfy!

I'm just starting week 5, but everything still fits just fine. I'm really hoping to make it to 10 weeks before I have to go shopping, but we'll see. It seems like everyone pops out so early with subsequent pregnancies!

I'm glad to hear others are already showing also. I was kind of worried, my pants are already kind of tight and when I let my belly out and don't suck in, I look 3 months pregnant (I'm 6 weeks). I don't remember showing this early at all with my first.

I am only on my fifth week and have no signs of belly, but my b**bs have already gotten bigger - and they are sooo sore. My dh has already said something to me - - of course he is happy about this. LOL.
