I'm only 5 weeks and i'm now having to unbutton my "fat pants" when I sit down and this morning while getting dressed I ran into the bathroom with just a shirt and panties on and you could clearly see my stomach under my shirt already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> I swear, there better not be triplets in there!

I hear ya! I am in maternity jeans today. My other pants dig when I sit down and just aren't comfy. My husband is laughing at me.... 5 weeks and maternity pants and his t-shirts. I was like this in my other two pregnancies as well, so I am not surprised <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Oh, and my other kids ended up only being 5lb10oz and 6lb8oz.... so I am sure I am not growing a supersized one either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

Yep, I'm 7 weeks today, though I've been living in yoga pants for the last 1 1/2 weeks or so. I actually bought some under-the-belly "true waist" pants but they are still a bit big on me, so I tie a thin scarf through the belt loops to hold them up. I've already cleared out my regular pants from the closet and started pulling out some maternity stuff, though I'm not getting out any full-belly stuff for a while ... I like the under the belly true waist pants because I can still wear regular shirts with them ...

I cannot believe it. I'm glad this thread was started becuase I was about to start one. I started wearing the maternity jeans last week. But at least these don't have that stupid elastic thing on them, I am hoping to wait on those for a while <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br>
I found some great ones at onehotmama.com for $19. They are a bit big and will be for a while but comfortable.<br><br>
My normal jeans are fine but by mid day they feel like they are digging into to me.<br><br>
I also have to dig out those maternity bras.<br><br>
But the best for last-- I am already "popping out" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> My friend noticed it today when we were taking our girls in the ladies room. I was straightening out my shirt and low and behold- there it was. I said to her "Where did that come from????" She just laughed.<br>
I mean WTF? I'm only 8 weeks, I havent;t even been to the Dr....

I'm with you guys! I am not quite 5 weeks and I feel like I look 3 or 4 months pregnant! I never quite lost the belly from the first two, but this time I am soooooo bloated it is not even funny. The progesterone supps don't help - they increase gas/bloating! Ugh!<br><br>
Anyway, since I've been pregnant for so much of the past few years and I really like my maternity clothes, I've been known to wear them even when I'm not pg! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

I've gotten all my fat clothes out and have started looking. I need to do some serious shopping because I am outgrowing everything so quickly. I feel like everyone who looks at me can tell. They probably just think I've put the weight back on (I lost 22 pounds right before before I got pg), though since it doesn't seem to just be my belly growing. I suppose I have an excuse, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Not me.. but I'm a first timer, and only have one in there. :LOL My bras are getting a little small, but my pants still fit just fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Ask me again in a few weeks.

I'm with you chiromama - new bras, but the pants still fit. I'm a little envious of you repeat mamas - I'd like some visual verification of that little bean in there! :LOL

Yeah, I'm in maternity pants already... I'm having more ms than ever and it is made 10times worse by anything the least bit constrictive on my belly. Thankfully I've got a DH who makes a protein shake for me every morning before I even sit up in bed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Yeah, he rocks.

I lent all my maternity clothes to a friend who isn't due until November. My clothes are starting to get tight...... but I'm still in them. I usually just wear dh's jeans for about a month before I get into the maternity pants. Hopefully I can make it till my friend returns my clothes. If not..... I guess I'll have to go out and buy a couple new things for myself....... nothing wrong with splurging now and again!

I just found out this week & my regular clothes are already bothering me. I think part of it is just the tightness on my bellly. I'm about 4 weeks with my second.....<br><br>

no maternity clothes yet, just trying to get by with the elastic waist pants and hang out shirts (what I wear half the time anyhow). Since no ones knows yet and we are waiting till the last possible minute, pulling out the maternity isnt such a good idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Even though Im dying to and sooo wanted to get some new clothes, right now its not gonna happen <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

So far no maternity clothes for me...which is great! I want to stay in my regular clothes as long as possible. I am hoping to keep this pregnancy quiet at work for a while <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">. Okay & the fact that all my maternity clothes will be off season from my last baby-can you say new wardrobe?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

Not into maternity clothes yet, though I did get them out of storage (and that was an awesome feeling! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ) I did go shopping today and buy a few pairs of pants from the thrift store in the next size up. I'm just all bloaty and feeling like my regular pants are too tight. I figure buying a size up will give me clothes to wear on the way back down afterward, too (something I didn't think of last time around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> )

Funny -- I feel like I've lost weight, and have NO belly at all yet. And this is #2. I don't feel pregnant at all really so I'm like.... is it really true?? I'll see my midwife tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get confirmation!

Me too! :LOL<br>
I did pull out my maternity clothes and they are in pretty sorry shape so I am going to shop around the consignment/ thrift stores a bit and hopefully pick up a few things <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have a feeling that I am going to wake up one day and nothing is going to fit - :LOL<br>
On that note - I really want to get a few pairs of nice comfy yoga pants, any recommendations??

Mountainsun - I LOVE my yoga pants that I got at Victoria Secret (isn't that weird that they had them?) I'm not a big Victoria Secret kind of gal, but I was shopping once with a pal and she went on and on about how comfortable they were and that I HAD to get some. She was right! I love them for working out, yoga, and mainly just lounging around the couch. :LOL I just checked online, they are called "Original Yoga Pant". (Off-topic - but why does the word "pant" give me the heebie-jeebies? It should always be plural in my opinion!)
