A couple weeks ago, I thought I had a bump. But it was just bloating from severe constipation. So sexy. Yeah, that's me ... one little hotty.

ETA: Although I'm puffy enough so far that my uniform doesn't fit right. Gotta love that polyester! So unforgiving. I'm thinking of tactfully asking a bigger paramedic colleague if I can borrow a larger uni.

This is the time that I hate! I don't look pregnant, just look like I haven't been to the gym in a long time.

I had to go buy some tobacco for FIL yesterday. I kept confirming with DH that I looked FAT, not pregnant. I didn't want to hear the "you shouldn't be smoking when you're pregnant", because they weren't for me. You can tell them that all day, but they don't believe you.

I was SO glad to see all these posts! I'm 9 weeks today, and I swear I can't suck in my large gut any more!

This is my 6th pregnancy, but I have only one child. I'm thought I was "showing" much sooner than I should, but this thread has really helped me!

Yesterday we went swimming at a friend's house. I packed a pair of pants that were in the "early pg" stack from last time around. When I went to change clothes, I couldn't button the pants! I know for a fact I wore those longer than 7 weeks last time.

Belly's getting bigger.....

Mine's getting bigger. I can still wear my jeans, but I unbutton them often and some days I just go ahead and wear the elastic waist skirt or maternity jeans. 8 week belly
