:LOL ... I'm what, 5 weeks, and already my uterus feels like it's stretched way out ... my pants are already getting a bit snug on me and I'm not even eating any more or exercising any less than I was 5 weeks ago ... what's up with that?!

With ds#2, I didn't realize I was pregnant until I was about 8 weeks along. I just remember thinking, man, this sucks ... I'm gaining weight ... I totally have to get to weight watchers or something. Then when I found out I was pregnant, I was sooooo happy because I had an excuse to pull out the maternity pants!!! :

So, maybe my body just likes getting into the spirit of things early ... anyone else with an incredibly expanding uterus yet?!

I hear ya, I just had surgery in July so my uterus was just going down and my massive post op bloat was going with it. . But in the last week, boom it all started coming back. My jeans are out I can wear my yoga pants but I had to get some maternity jeans for when I go out. So we might have to tell people sooner then we think

this is my third so I will just have to wait and see. With my last two I didn't show until 7 months iwth my first and 5 months with my second (don't throw tomatoes me ) this one will probably be earlier since my bodies been there before. I am hoping I don't show for a little while I want to savor and enjoy the news just for myself for a while.

I remember with my first getting those pains down the right side, esp whenever I would have some growth. In the beginning it freaked me out. Now it's just a major pain (pun intended!).

I thought it wasn't supposed to do this with a 1st pg, but I am starting to leave buttons undone and staring at my closet looking for elastic waist bands. I don't have much of an appetite so I haven't been eating too much. DH is being weird about me going to the gym so I'm asking the doc on Friday. Maybe that'll slow this down??

I'm still going to the gym. I remember last time the OB said I would rather you excercise than not. I did all the way up to my bedrest at 29 weeks when I had early contractions (that had nothing to do w working out btw)

But my workout has slowed down a bit.

My jeans are getting tight around the waist also so I will need sweats soon.

Popping in from Jan. DDC--

mimid-- I, too am a first time mom, and I outgrew all of my regular clothes within the first 5 weeks! I didn't gain any weight, in fact I lost some weeks the first trimester.

What sucked was that I was wearing stretchy clothes and discreet maternity stuff from 4-6 weeks, but people didn't know I was pregnant. I still don't get the "Oh... when are you due!!!??" unless I tell the people beforehand.

Well, at least it's not just me! Seems weird though to see it all happening so quickly. I have to teach tonight and am obviously not ready to let the world know so I guess I will have to go with my yoga pants! Wonder how long it will be before I have to convert my enitre wardrobe?

I can completely relate. With my first pregnancy, I was in maternity clothes by about 11 weeks, my 2nd pregnancy I was in maternity clothes (or pants at least) at 6 weeks, and I just found out today that I am pregnant and already need to pull out the maternity pants (5weeks). I just bloat big time when first pregnant and then my pants are all uncomfortable because they dig into my belly. We are going to try to keep this a secret until my 2nd trimester, but we don't know how we will be able if we see any family since my belly will be a give away. (well, maybe not.... I am a chunky girl and they might just think I am getting even fatter so they won't say anything for fear of hurting my feelings :LOL )
