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 )
