What happened to me?! I do not remember being this big at this stage with any of my other pregnancies. My 10 yo. dd even commented today--"Mom, when you stand sideways, your belly looks really big."<br><br>
Oh dear <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">.<br><br>
It really seems to have happened in the last 2 days. Guess I'll be dragging out the maternity clothes earlier than I expected.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> My DD has been saying that to me for weeks. Grnated, she is 5 and her perspective is a little off, I suppose. I am in maternity clothes full time now. I know it's not twins, it's just another pregnancy.

I hear you! We are waiting to tell people until 15-16 weeks and I think it's going to be tough to go that long w/out looking obviously pregnant. I already look and feel chubby - hopefully my baby belly will stay un-popped for a few more weeks! I knew I'd show faster than with my first, but I didn't expect it to be this soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I look about 4 months preggers right now! (At 11 weeks) I usually only have teh slighest hint of a bump by 4 months though...so I look more like my typical 5-6 months!!!! I actually broke down and had an ultrasound to be sure there was only one. I am on a hunch that I am carrying differently because this one is a girl???

I've been in maternity pants for at least a month already.<br><br>
I just told a coworker today and she swore she had no idea and she couldn't tell, even when she knew, but I can tell. I can see that baby bump growing, from looking down and looking in a mirror, clothed or not.

Broke down and bought maternity pants this weekend. I busted out of most of my dress/work pants... literally. I lost buttons. It was soooo hard to go and buy maternity clothes. its so hard to find the right pants. Luckily its getting easier than it was when I was pg with the first two. I was practially a kid and still looking for juniors fashion. Luckily I am a grown up now.<br><br>
I look HUGE... like where I was at 5 months with my youngest... and Im 11 weeks. My sister keeps making jokes about twins... now Im scared to death shes right!

Yep, dug deep into my closet just today to find some maternity pants without that big 'ol nasty stretchy panel in the front. Wore them tonight out to dinner for the first time. If my chest doesn't stop growing soon, I'm not sure what is going to happen. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

If I had this problem, too, my belly wouldn't look so big!!<br><br>
I had a drs appt yesterday, and I've only gained back the pound I lost during the first 2 months, so it must be my uterus pushing up what fat I have. Maybe I should do some sit-ups...<br><br>
Naaahhhh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
