I am seriously bloated beyond belief. My body is like, "Oh, I've done this before...I'm supposed to grow out." I'm normally very thin (size 3) so I can tell big time. I'm in maternity pants and I'm only 5 WEEKS! Yikes! It is kind of cool, since I didn't show forever with dd (that was back when I had abs). Am I the only one here - I'm beggining to think I have quads in there!

i had to step away from my regular pants and into low rise or maternity at 5 weeks, too. i just got thick around the middle ... no weight gain or anything, just added inches to my belly. it's kinda freaky, really.

I'm counting the minutes till I show, but nothing! I have defined abs so it may take a little bit for my belly to poke out! Its locked in!
I also lost my digital camera
and I'm dying to take a belly picture to start the sequence of belly pictures. I'm going to beg dh to go out this weekend and buy us a new digital!

Lotus, this is your first, right? It may be a whiiiile...I hardly showed at ALL until 6 months! I have a long torso and had a strong belly too.

THIS TIME? People have asked me, no kidding, like four people in the past month, if I'm pregnant (I didn't know I was and was quite upset about looking "fat"). I am shocked. The body is amazing, and it really does just go into preg gear once it's done it before!

elsanne- yes, it is my first and I have a long torso as well as the strong abs.
Oh darn, I was so looking forward to showing! I guess it doesn't matter in winter anyway being all bundled up in sweaters and coats. By spring I'll be able to revel in the glory of the belly!

i'm not so much pooching out, but my regular pants are snug and when i wear them, i get wicked heartburn. so i switched to some early maternity pants. i have plenty of pants, but i'm going to need long sleeve shirts and sweaters this time. DD was a spring/summer pregnancy. we are also planning on keeping this little bean under wraps for a little while with my family, but i guess we'll see what my body thinks about that.
