I am shocked that I am only 7 weeks and I am already huge. My pants are tight this morning and I must go bra shopping immediately.

I do not understand how I could get so big so fast. I wanted to keep this quiet for a while, but it is going to be futile.

I'm 6w1d and in the same boat. Even my size too big fat pants are too tight to wear. I'm in maternity already :/

well then you ladies need to start posting belly pics! looks like the june ddc will have one of the earliest belly pic threads, since a lot of us are starting to show long before the 2nd trimester (me included- i'll be 6w tomorrow and i look probably like i'm 3 or 4 months!)

My tummy seems a bit bloated too (only 5 weeks), but not crazy big or anything. HOWEVER... my BB's are definitely a size bigger and are huge!!! I was already a 34DD, not suer what size I will need now (never been bigger than this). I might try a 36 DD as that should make the cup size bigger right??

I have always started showing early in my other two pregnancies, so I suspect it won't be much different this time around... I expect to be in maternity by 12 weeks... some of my pants were already snug as I have gained a few pound recently so they may not fit too long. I guess we shall see!!

I am as big right now (at 5.5 weeks) as I was at 14-ish weeks with DS!! It is insane.. granted, I was teeny for the first 5 months with DS but still!! At least I just ordered some cute maternity clothes from Old Navy!!

I wouldn't call it 'showing' so much as OMG bloat. Not sucking in, I look huge and pregnant. Sucking it in I see a definite bump where it's usually flat (it all sticks out, but usually in a flat way, now in a curvy way).

Maybe I'll do a belly pic after my ultrasound tomorrow.

I seem to just have gotten large everywhere--not only is my pooch a lot poochier, and my breasts literally popped the button on my sweater earlier this week, but my thighs are, well...let's just say I am glad it isn't swim suit weather.

I'm in maternity pants today at 5 weeks. I can still get into my regular jeans, but they just weren't comfortable. These cords from JCP are WONDERFUL.

As I sit writing this, I'm in a maternity skirt and very big tshirt. It's all I have that's comfortable except for my yoga pants. Heh. I'm somewhere in Week 6.

Well, I myself am just a leeeetle impatient to start showing. Considering it's my first, I'm resigned to it being a while.

However, some of my stuff is a little tight. I think it's more bloating. Boo.

I feel a little bloated and my smallest pants are tight. I weight exactly the same though.

I'm just bloated I think, not showing at all yet. I actually weigh a bit less than last week (I've been trying) but my clothes, especially my shirts, are tight. My boobs are HUGE already- 38F, and I don't want to get any larger : My baby bump isn't noticable until it gets out past my boobs- not for a loooong time

I've heard after multiple births you start showing sooner. With my first one you couldn't even tell I was prego until 6 months and one morning I woke up and had a big ole belly. With my second one I was in maternity clothes byt the time I was 8 weeks along.

This time I think I'm 5 weeks not showing just yet but am pretty bloated and the bb's are definitley inflating... LOL
