Bleh, my belly already looked pg before I even got pg!<br>
I think it is starting to grow, though. My regular pants dont fit and the mat clothes are feeling nice!

<div style="font-style:italic;">We've been keeping it pretty quiet and I feel like one of these Sundays I'll just turn up at church and people will be like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jaw2"> "She's pg?!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"></div>

We just went ahead and announced it at church because I was out of clothes that hid my growing bump! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Here is me this weekend at 10w. I don't have a lot of belly fat usually so it's all baby for the most part! I always show early though! My sister kept saying "Turn to the right a bit so you look bigger!!" She was trying to get a good pic to show my mom!<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v401/Stayseeliz/dcp_1387.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...z/dcp_1387.jpg</a><br><br>
I'm in trouble if I keep up my current rate of growth!! I may have another near 10 pounder like DS!

I'm looking about like you are Stacey. I'm bumping out high like that too. I was surprise to see a bump so high so soon. I already have that "shelf" feeling!! It must be a girl - I carried dd high like that. I carried ds very low and wide the entire pregnancy. I don't think anyone has caught on yet, but I don't think I will be able to hide it much longer.

I think I look pg. My dad guessed that I was pg. But I think a lot of it is my bfing storage just being pushed out further by the baby, not the actual baby and stuff, that's showing. A friend told me the other day that I wasn't showing yet, but I feel like most of my regular shirts are too tight and riding up (or my pants, which I want loose and low, are riding down).

It honestly amazes me that people who've already had kids don't show sooner. I guess I just pooch out very quickly and stay that way for a long time. I'm seeing a friend today who is two weeks ahead of me and I know I'll be bigger than her. It's crazy! Just the way I am though..

I've got a little pooch of a belly, but not really looking pregnant yet. I'll have to see if I can get a picture posted.

Definitely looking preggers here. This is #3 for me... I feel like almost as soon as I peed on the stick I looked it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm thin to begin with, so maybe that's part of it.

My belly feels spongy and possibly at little bigger - but not really pregnant. It also seems that all that gas - sorry to say - makes it look bloated often. Hope to have a digital camera, by the time I really start looking pregnant.

i haven't gained any weight, well i don't think i have i am unsure what i weighed right before getting pregnant but right now i weigh what i did last time i was weighed pre-pregnancy. my belly is sticking out more but it is just fat i just look fatter than normal. i am really looking forward to looking pregnant. also i don't understand how my belly can stick out now when it isn't the baby i know it isn't the baby my uterus isn't there yet but if i haven't gained weight and even if i had gained weight it normally isn't in my belly it is in my hips.. so what makes my belly stick out?

In empire waist shirts I look pregnant. In regular shirts, I look like I've gained some weight. I can't find any pants that fit. Maternity is still too big and nothing is fitting right.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Baby is probably pushing the rest of your insides up and they're making your belly stick out. I remember seeing a diagram of the anatomy of a pregnant woman, and the organs pretty much just go wherever there's room left. Believe me, you'll feel it toward the end.<br><br>
I haven't taken a good, honest look in the mirror yet, what with chasing after two kids! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> No one has said anything, which is good as we're not telling our families until after the first trimester is up (they're just so darn enthusiastic). We've been busy trying to curb my weight loss. My metobolism kicks into high gear when I'm pregnant: I lost 20 lbs each with my past two pregnancies (yes, I eat like a horse). Plus I'm nursing during this one, and we didn't know for awhile that I was pregnant, so I suddenly lost four dress sizes, which was startling. I imagine that I'll probably start showing soon with all of that going on.

I definately look pregnant!!! I was in mat clothes at 9 weeks and have been happy in baggy shirts evry since. I can't believe how my tummy just popped out with this one...I won't have an U/S for another month and I sure hope there are no surprises...LOL!<br><br>
Maybe we will take some pics this weekend and then post.<br><br>

I posted this somewhere else but, it pertains to here.<br><br><a href="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a86/jrayn/bellymarch27002.jpg" target="_blank">http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a86...march27002.jpg</a><br><br>
I don't have the hard bump unless I lay flat and search but something is poking out, most of my bottoms are too tight, I have 2 pairs of shorts left that I don't have to unbutton and/or unzip to wear.... I need more summer clothes for pregnancy... I can see myself gardening in a long dress, hem hiked up over my knees all wet and muddy..... That is mainly what I have from pregnancy #1, I worked in an office setting. That or dress slacks....

Christine, I was looking at the beautiful house and trees in the background and thought, "wow, that looks like Atlanta... I wonder where she is?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I only spent a little time there, years ago, but it sure did look familiar! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
