Yuck! I wear a size 28 pants and could probably wear a 30 or 31 right now. It was the same with last pregnancy....I was out of my regular pants at 10 weeks......at this rate I don't know if my cute, snug jeans will last to week 8. Anyone else?

I hear you, Vanessa -- I am only 5 weeks and I feel like i'm double that. I've been taking Tums tablets to try to let some air out of the balloon, but it doesn't seem to be helping! I'm also trying to drink more water, but I don't know if that will help! It makes me feel so lazy too! You're not alone!

Yes yes yes I'm there too... only 4.5 weeks and I feel like I'm already starting to show a baby belly. I know it's just bloating but man it's not what I want to see right now lol.

I'm right there with you! I'm 7.5 weeks and quickly moving out of my size 6 jeans into my size 8's. I have size 10's for when I'm postpartum so I'm also going to move into those before going to maternity. It's all bloating, my uterus has hardly started to swell at all. After 4 kids, I'm really dreading maternity clothes this time so am going to do all I can to stay in regular pants as long as I can! I have so many cute clothes I bought last season that I want to wear again - I'm going to try that Belly Band!

Ugh! Me, too! Bloated, but even worse -- I've gained weight!!

I'm only 5.5 weeks along and yet the scale says I've gained 3 pounds! How can that be? I've only had maybe 3 meals that were over-the-top (pizza, fish n'chips, and a veggie burger with fries) in the last month. The rest of the time I've eaten light and very heathy (beet & carrot salad with steamed fish, kind of thing). How can I have gained 3 pounds? My breasts are bigger, sure, but not THAT much bigger.

I'm almost paranoid that people at work are going to begin suspecting....

What the heck is the bloating, anyway? Does anyone know?

My first sign that I'm pregnant before AF is late or I've taken an HPT? I gain 3 lbs!! With every single pregnancy, a 3 lb unexplained quick weight gain equals I'm pregnant! This time, too. You're not the only one! For me, it's all in my stomach.

I want to know too! I don't remember this with the first pregnancy.
