Anyone else move into maternity clothes early?
I didn't think most women needed maternity clothes 5 weeks in--this is my first, so I may have been misguided. I'd love it if someone would tell me the bloating will ease off over the next week or two as my body gets more accustomed to the hormonal surges...please? I'm not ready to shop!

I don't know what I'm going to do this time. Probably just hide in the house until the baby is born 'cause I really don't want to buy new maternity clothes, but I think I'll have to - soon.

I am wearing my reg. pants to work, but they are uncomfortable... so I'm wearing them unbuttoned and partially unzipped w/ a makeshift band until my Bella Band arrives.
I hope it eases off a bit, too... because I'm not ready to tell the world, but the world is gonna guess what's up very soon at this rate!

I was changing into my pajamas last night and my belly looked bloated. I thought part of it may have to do with just normal eating and drinking throughout the day and it would "go down" overnight. But when I got in the shower this morning it looked about the same.
Does anybody know why? What would be the medical reason to retain water?
The pants aren't too bad for me but the seatbelt drives me nuts. But I also drive a Jeep Wrangler with a 4" lift kit, so it is super bumpy.
