Pooching already???<br><br>
I took a bath last night and looked down to see a pooch. There's literally like a line from where it goes flat just on my pelvic bone and where it goes out into the POOCH. A pooch that I can't suck in. I haven't started this thing at my firmest and thinest, but I know that a few days ago when I layed down on my back my stomach sunk *in*. I remember this distinctly because it's something I do regularly and for fun, seeing my stomach curve in again albeit through the powers of gravity. I am only 7 weeks! I haven't been eating because of terrible nausea so I know I haven't gained weight yet, and still there's a pooch. A soft flabby pooch. How unfair is that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Please, someone join me soon!

The joys of having baby number 4--yes, I'm sticking out too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> . Or maybe it's having a baby past age 30. Either way, I'm not even 7 weeks yet and have a pooch that wasn't there a few weeks ago.

Thank you for joining me! It's no where near enough to keep me out of my regular clothes or anything, but I can't help but worry about how close that is since it's already noticable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> My belly is just so well practiced. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I'm sad to say that, indeed, I have a bump too. I probably wasn't in the best of shape to begin with, so now that I'm preg. with #3, I think my stomach muscles just pre-emptively gave up. My pants definitely don't fit, and my shirts are feeling a bit short. I pulled my maternity clothes out of storage and some fit, others seem a bit big. Mostly, I'm wearing my husband's clothes right now.<br><br>
I do think it is a bit unfair. With my first pregnancy I couldn't wait to show - which didn't happen until about week 20. Now, I'd really like to not show for a bit longer, and well, I've had a bump for the past week. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: This is baby #1 for us (well, pregnancy #2, but the last one didn't take) and already I am Mrs. Bloat. I have a pooch as well, and it doesn't go down when I lay down. And I was pretty toned when this all started!<br><br>
I think mine has to do with intestinal stuff though. You know, the really glamorous stuff like gas and constipation and gas...<br><br>

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> that's too funny and I'm sticking with that story too, though I can still fit into the few pair of pants that I got back into after ds (then the pg that mc-ed). A couple of months ago I started working full time on the new house and consequently had dropped about 10 lbs without really trying, guess I don't have to worry about that happening anytime soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have a pooch too. I a little bit of one before but I can't such this one in. My regular pane were already pushing it before I got pregnant I can't wear them anymore, with the exception of a couple pairs of pants. If I am going to be around the house all day I throw on some comfy maternity clothes and reserve the things that still fit for when I go into public.<br><br>
Nursing tops seem to help a little since they seem to be a little longer.

Pooching out here too. Yesterday I gave up on my pants and have resigned myself to wearing sweats for a while.<br><br>
The gas and constipation dosen't help either. Plus I have always showed early. I was in maternity clothes with my first at 16 weeks. By 11 weeks with my second, so I knew I wasn't going to wearing my own clothes for long.

Oh yeah, I have a major belly already. My stomach has never been flat, but now it is definitely sticking way out. I didn't lose all of my baby weight after #1 3.5 years ago and I think my c/s messed up my abs too.<br><br>
And once I got the + result, I quit trying to suck it in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Still managing with elastic waist pants (not maternity yet). I was hoping to get out of the xl stretchy clothes I've been wearing for the last 4 years, but looks like they'll be sticking around for a couple years longer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
