Is it possible? Either I am or I just developed a huge belly I don't usually have and can't suck in. Is anyone else experiencing this? It is my 3rd baby but still! I didn't show until at least 3 months before. I wan't planning on announcing this since it was unplanned and I am trying to deal with it before I have to talk about it but...I think people will notice within 2 weeks. Anyone else?

ohhh yeah. Me too. I had a pouch at 5 weeks for sure. Now at 7 weeks I think its obvious I am pregnant if you know me. I am thin and don't normally have a belly pouch. I don't remember being this big this early with my dd either... I think i was more like 12-14 weeks when I was this big...

I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and my husband told me tonight that he thinks it's pretty obvious at this point... and I was hoping not to say anything until my appt. (I don't go until mid-March!). I know I started to show around 6 weeks or so... and now much more. I know with my 2nd DD I didn't show until at least 11 weeks.

I am 7weeks along and I don't see huge changes except after I eat, I blow up and look 7 months pregnant! My husband did kindly say that I did look like I was getting bigger, he said it as if he thought I had been waiting to hear that until I shot him the shut the heck up look and I explained that he better take that word out of his vocabulary for the next nine months!! Does a fat layer start this early to protect the belly, I have been eating VERY healthy and getting 30min exercise daily but still am showing some rolling action!

BTW-how do I put up the cute icons and pics on this site?

I think that most of mine is bloating to be honest. I just don't know what else it could be!! It can't be baby yet.

Hey BFF!! Glad you joined! The emoticon list is on the side bar-----> and there is a MORE button below it for a huge list of them! To do pictures you have to do something like photobucket. They don't have any way to upload pictures directly to the site.

My pants (this preg and last) get too tight by 5-6 wks. But, for me, it's all bloat. Last time, I didn't get a real baby bump until 17 wks. Expecting one a little earlier this time, but probably not until my 2nd tri.

For me it is a combo of bloat and that I think I can actually feel my fundus about an inch over my pubic bone whiloe standing. I think everything is starting to get squished upward.
Either way I look pregnant, as of three days ago. And my 3rd pregnancy I was at 6 weeks too. oh well

From about 5 to 6.5 weeks I was really bloated. Then the bloat went away and now it's a firm round belly. I couldn't button my jeans yesterday. I'm 8.5 weeks. I was really, really thin before I got pg. It was getting hard to hide around 7.5 weeks. With my first, I was 6 months pg and people still weren't noticing. I've gotten bigger, earlier, with each one. This is crazy for me though. I'm really tall and have a long torso so usually I can hide it for a while... I think my body is saying: "oh, pregnancy hormones, we've done this before, poof, here's a belly!"
