Anyoone else just feel HUGE? I swear I look really PG today, and I didn't last night, so I know it's all just bloat, and it's HUGE! It's also misserable. If this keeps up I"ll be in maternity soon. Anyone else? THis is baby #3 for me, so maybe my body is just getting ready?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I've been hippo-mama these last couple of days, too. I kept wondering WHY my little "puff" weight was hanging around. It should have been a clue that I was preggie--I only realized on Wednesday--but alas, these things often only make sense in context!

Yep, I've got that chubby tummy thing going on. You know the look, where you're just starting to show on your first baby at four months. Not really showing, just your tummy starts doing this little curve outwards. Yeah. That's me.<br><br>
At five weeks.<br><br>
Ugh.

This is #2 for me and I'm not quite 6 weeks yet and I already look about the way I did when I was at 15 weeks with my first pregnancy. Clothes are starting to get TIGHT!

I too am so bloated, I look like I'm 4-5 mos. PG and I'm only 7 wks. My grandmother asked me today why my stomach was so big! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Then I decided to tell her the good news. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Last night I woke up feeling yucky in my tummy. Drank some watered down prune juice. That helped move things along.<br><br>
More prune juice later today. Too much of a good thing? Urp. Ouch. I was walking in the supermarket, dh talking to me, I turned to answer and burped up chunks. TMI!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (mantra) This will pass.....this will pass........ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';">Oh...it is nice to hear I am not the only one....although I still wonder. This is pregnancy #2 for me. At 4 1/2 weeks I could no longer wear my jeans. At the beginning of my 7th week I am the same size as I was w/ my first at 5 1/2 months. I know w/ subsequent pregnancies you show faster...but I am anxious to talk to Dr this week and find out if I may be further along or carring more than one.<br>
I had a very unusual period last month and we had been trying for about 3 months....so who knows. Stranger things have happened.</span>

Oh yeah - I'm right there with y'all! At 6 weeks, DD (4) said "mommy, your tummy looks so huge. You look like you are pregnant!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> so we told her. We weren't planning to tell her until about 8 weeks, but oh well!

I believe it is body memory or something. Your body has already stretched for the earlier babies so it is pretty easy to get it to stretch again. Since it is so easy the hard work that your body is doing makes you show earlier because it responds so well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
