h__lo everyone. I am 9 weeks pregnant with my second child. with my first, i wasn't showing until 15 weeks. with this one, i can't fit in ANY of my clothes! and besided having a big pouch, my stomach above my belly button is huge!!!!! i know the baby isnt out of the pelvic girdle yet, so why am i so big on top already? anyone else having this problem? i swear i look 5 months along already! i dont go to the ob for my first apt til next week. can anyone else relate?!?!!

Yes, I can relate. This is my third and I do not remember showing already with them. I am 9 weeks 4 days today and feel huge. I have to use rubberbands to b___ton my jeans right now. I keep thinking maybe I am gaining to much weight, so I got on the lovely scale and have gained 3 pounds already. Sounds lioke to much to me so I will be watching my diet closely. Anyone else think 3 pounds is to much for only 9 weeks??

3 lbs is not too much at 9 weeks. I saw my doctor for the first time at 8 weeks and he said that 5 lbs for this time was absolutely normal---due to all the bloating/blood/ and water retention in your abdomen. I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank You ginger! I gained almost 50 pounds with my second and I am so trying not to do that this time around. That does make me feel better about it.

kim-you're ok!!!! I have a GREAT book that I swear by- Your pregnancy week by week. it says that you should have gained 4 lbs by week 7...so you're fine! as long as you're not eating gallons of icecream a day, you'll be fine!
