I have actually lost a couple of pounds over the past two weeks, and yet my pants are tighter! I guess our bodies do really remember - it's like "muscle memory" only it's "baby pudge memory."

Yeah same for me. Lost some weight but the belly and rear are bigger. I swear I am pregnant in the arse. I had to unzip my jeans after lunch, whew. One of my friends told me my arms look smaller so the fat is definitely being redistributed.

Mine are actually too big and falling down, BUT I was losing weight to begin with and I think it's all shifted to a different location now. (And I'm large to begin with.)

None of my clothes fit. All my shirts are too short, and my pants are too tight. Even if I can get them on, my pants are tight enough that they really hurt the skin on my belly.

I, too, have lost weight and cannot fit comfortably into my pants. I am starting to show if I am not super careful.

My mom was here today helping to make freezer meals for us and boy the sickness and my clothing, I was sure would betray me and my hidden pregnancy. I am just not ready to tell her.

But yep.....my pants do not fit. I am so not ready to break out the maternity pants (already went into the elastic waist kind at 6.5 weeks):

Yep, here too, and its soooooo early! My skinny jeans don't fit at all (boohoo!) my fat jeans just fit, but are uncomfortable at the waist. I've been living in sweat pants for 3 days But I had to get dressed today to take DD to school, so I threw on jeans with one of those belt like things to make your pre-pg pants last longer. I think its called a Bella Band? That saved me big time.

Unbuttoned while sitting for the first time today. 6 weeks on Friday. Eeek. I seem to remember my jeans being super uncomfortable last time by 7 weeks as I was working a desk job. These days I am mostly on my feet toddler-wrangling, so it's not so noticeable.

Yes. My jeans are uncomfortably tight, especially sitting down. I always unbutton, so long as I have a shirt long enough to cover the zipper area!

There are very few pants I'm fitting into these days. On Monday I wore a pair of mat pants out of sheer desperation. Today I'm wearing my biggest wool trousers and they are snug.

Must sew faster! I'm waiting on a huge shipment of fabric to turn into mat skirts, dresses and pants... hope it arrives before the weekend!!

7 weeks today and my work pants and jeans do not fit by the end of day. As soon as I get home, it's yoga or pajama pants. For some reason, skirts are better but no matter what I wear, there's a pooch by the end of the day. I'm going to have to start wearing blazers at work to cover it up.

Plan on hitting up the maternity shop next weekend for a Bella Band.

Ok, I'm only 3 and a half weeks, and I am bloated! Standing up my pants are fine, but the ones that don't have any stretch in them (like my button fly jeans) hurt my skin when I'm sitting. I'm very sensitive to bloat anyway, but I've been wearing my fat pants and elastic waist skirts all week.

I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow and for the last week, I've been alternating between regular jeans and maternity, depending on the amount of bloat!
