I know it is mainly bloating but it still makes me laugh. I wonder if it has something to do with this being my third pregnancy in 6 months?

My almost 5 year old said to me yesterday morning, "mom it looks like you might have a tiny baby in your belly."

Anybody else?

I don't look at all pregnant yet, but with my last pregancy, by 6 weeks of pregnancy, I was so bloated I looked like I was 4 or 5 months pregnant already. I hope it's not a bad sign that I'm not too bloated this time. I was very bloated right off the bat with my other two pregnancies.

I'm very bloated. My belly looks like it did when I was about 14wks with DS1 and about 10 wks with DS2 (it keeps happening earlier, I guess!!!).

Yeah, I remember you too Jill! I hope I get to stay here. I've had quite a bit of bleeding and it's pretty scary. I've got an appt. tomorrow. Hopefully I'll know more then.

Sorry to divert the thread! Back to the original dialogue. I'm feeling a bit more bloated today than I did yesterday.

Sorry to hear about the bleeding...I'll be thinking sticky thoughts for you!

I am huge! Although, I literally only lost 5 of the 35 pounds from my last baby, almost two years ago...so I am starting out pretty big. : I have not gotten on a scale yet and I do not plan to! Here's the link to my pics - look at how I popped out! (I'll update tomorrow when I am 8w.)

Wow Jill!!! Wow! That's a big preggo tummy you've got there. You are several weeks ahead of most here though. I'll be looking like that by 10 weeks, I'm sure. And how the heck did you get a good pic of your pregnancy test? I tried several times but couldn't get a clear photo.

I'm not looking pregnant yet. Of course, I have 50 more pounds on my body than I should. I did manage to get back to and below my pre-pregnancy weight with DD though.

scheelimama, I'm not Jill, but I scanned my pregnancy test to get a clear picture.

Oh, that's a good idea GuavaLava. The light on my positive test just died (as of this morning) after staying lit for 2 days. I doubt if I'll take another one now.

Jill, your belly is so cute!!

Yes I certainly didn't have a washboard stomach before I got pregnant but now it is definitely bigger. I can't wait to have a big hard definitely pregnant looking belly!

I'm glad I'm not the only one looking a little rounder already.

I'll chime in for "extreme bloating' here - wow - I really balloon out when pregnant - I wanted to wait to tell, but with my big belly sticking out I don't think that will be happening!

I will start with the belly pics probably tomorrow, though I don't anticipate much change in the way the belly looks till about week 22-24. I want to get an early start with the belly pics this time around though.

Wow Jill, that is an impressive preggo belly for less than 8 wks! Very preggo too, not fat-looking.

I'm going to wear all my skinny clothes for the next few weeks while I can. It won't be long.
