Ah! I'm just six weeks and my pants don't fit! I am seriously in maternity shorts right now. (The all around the waist kind, not the kind with the huge panel). I haven't gained any weight. This is pregnancy #3 and I am only 5 foot tall. So this isn't so bad right? Anyone else not fitting into their pants?<br><br>
Oh and I had to get new bras too! Somehow this doesn't bother me so much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I only have a couple pairs of pants that still sort of fit me. I've had to wear my maternity shorts (with a panel) already too. (I'm about 8 weeks) I'm 5'1 or '2. My bras are also starting to not fit so I'm going to have to get some new ones soon. I'm sending dh into the attic today when he gets home to see if he can find my maternity clothes from last time so I actually have stuff to wear.

Thanks for letting me know I am not alone.<br>
I was not quite ready to tell the world I'm pregnant yet but it looks like I don't have much of a choice. I have maybe a week or two left on not looking pregnant!

I'm in either yoga pants or maternity pants here too. No weight gain either which makes it even more weird. There's definitely going to be no hiding this belly in a week or two. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm taller though - 5'7" - but I always get a belly early.<br><br>
ETA: I'm a little over 9 wks.

What a relief to read this thread. I have to unbutton my pants by the end of the day and I'm not quite 7 weeks yet. I actually tried on maternity shorts yesterday but kind of felt like an imposter since I'm not really showing.<br><br>
Since this is my first and I am tall (6') I thought I wasn't supposed to get a belly for a while. It's more bloat than belly but it's definitely changing the way my pants fit - or don't!<br><br>
Maybe I'll shop online - then I won't have to deal with any curious cashiers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I thought I was setting a record for earliest in maternity clothes! PixieLittle- I wouldn't worry about the cashiers-they are used to ladies not yet showing but needing stuff to wear. The lady at Macy's didn't bat an eyelash at me today. Plus it is kinda fun to go see what they have and get a little help.<br>
I think maternity clothes are cute. Pregnancy is the only time I am not so body conscious-I don't even mind wearing a bathing suit!

I'm so glad I am not the only one. I'm only 5 feet 2. None of my regular clothes fit. Luckily I have a bunch of clothes that are one size bigger than my regular clothes, and I think I can make do for awhile with those and my bella bands. I had to buy bras too.
