I think I'm having pregnancy symptoms: needing naps, nauseous from time to time, slightly enlarged/tender breasts, slight odor aversions (but not nearly as bad as last time). Overall my symptoms are much milder than last time. Also, by this time in my last pregnancy I was in stretchy pants because my other pants weren't fitting, but this time my regular pants still seem to fit.
I know I'm probably being silly, but I just feel so... not pregnant! Anyone else waiting, waiting for a belly?
But to answer your question, YES I am sooo waiting for a belly.

I'm definitely not wearing my snug-fitting jeans any more, but that's more because I hate anything around my belly when I'm pregnant - I remember this from last time.
Most sites are saying that my uterus is roughly the size of an orange, and the fetus the size of a raspberry, so I"m putting any change in shape down to bloating

it looks by your siggy that it's been 4-5 years since your first was born? That is a lot of time to redevelop those abs!
I sort of assumed my abs were stretched out for life, but yes, my belly looks the same as before my first child, and he's super-active so I've been running after him for 4 years!
I guess the "your body remembers being pregnant and your belly pops right out" thing is a bit of a myth for some women.
I just took a two hour nap which is not normal for me at all, so I shouldn't be worried. In fact, I'm going to post another question about that right now

I'm pretty fluffy, so I'm not really showing yet, but I can tell the difference. The top of my belly is hard and it feels like it's full of organs and stuff. I'm already into maternity shorts, just because my normal stuff hits at weird points and annoys me. I'm

I honestly have no idea if I am showing or not. I carry a lot of fat right in my belly below my navel, so I basically ALWAYS look pregnant. Right now all my clothes are still fitting, though. And although I'm being careful about maintaining my weight in the first trimester, I think I am trading some fat for muscle, so some of my clothes actually fit better now. Don't know how long that will last.
