I am pregnant with my fourth baby and with every child I got bigger faster. I am now only 7 weeks and have been wearing stretch pants for 3 weeks. Hang in there, I didn't gain as much total weight with my second two as I did with my first. It doesn't mean that you are going to be the state puff marshmallow man! :)

Thank God I'm not alone! I'm 9weeks pregnant and gained 2 lbs. I'm 124lbs and feel like I'm 200lbs. I can't fit into my clothes and I get so bloated, I feel like I'm going to pop!

Okay, so maybe you all could help me a little bit then, since you all have the wisdom from your first pregnancies! I have been wondering if I am pregnant, but I also have a vivid imagination! I feel that I have many symptoms, such as exhaustion (more than normal), hightened sense of smell, sick to my stomach many times, can't eat or even smell things that I normally love (CHOCOLATE!), and sensitive b___sts. I also feel very bloated-to the point where I can barely wear my normal jeans anymore and it is not in the normal way that I gain weight. I went to a clinic to have a urine test taken-it came back negative, but after I told them all of this and that I had a weird, unusual period this month, they told me I very well could be expecting. She made me an appointment for a pap smear and all that good stuff for a month from now!!!! I am sooo anxious and feel that I wanna know now!!!! Does anyone have any input on this? Thanks so much!

I am glad I found this post. People always tell me it's normal to show early with your second or third pregnancy but this is my FIRST and I am showing a lot. I had to buy maternity clothes already. I started showing at 5 weeks and have kept growing since. I am now at 11 weeks and have a descent sized round hard tummy. Don't let people tell you it's just fat or bloating, some people do show early. I have gained 12 lbs so far with this pregnancy and I am eating healthy and working out so I doubt it's just fat, plus my tummy is firm, not jiggly.

I am so glad to see that I am not the only person on baby 3 already feeling real pregnant. I am bloated after I eat but then in the morning my stomach is normal (looks preg still). I am almost 6 weeks and I look 4 months!!

Yes, it is very common for women who have been pregnant before to show in 1st trimester. Everything is pre-streched. :)

I am 9 weeks pregnant and I look like I am atleast 6 months. I am not having twins and have gained 10 pounds in the last month

 

Teresa - July 30

I am 9 weeks pregnant and I look like I am atleast 6 months!! I have been eating everything in sight and unfortunately I have not thyroid so I am "hypothyroid" - I have gained 10 pounds in the last month. I do not know if this belly is baby or my thyroid causing me to put all the weight on in my stomach from all the food I have been eating. If anyone else here has hypothyroidism while pregnant - please email me at [email protected] I would love some advice!!

Hello Linda i too am pregnant with my second child and at 10 weeks I am already in maternity clothes and have a nice rounded bump.I think the reason you show sooner is because your body knows what to do but also because your stomach muscles are more relaxed than the first time around.I don't think its the uterus but the bowels and intestines beginning to move and become squashed- hence the bloatedness and if you are any thing like me the flatulence.

I AM 11 WKS AND I ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT FIT IN TO ANY OF MY REGULAR JEANS NOR PANTS SO I AM ALREADY WEARING ELASTIC TIE PANTS..I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE..

 

Tracey - August 3

I'm so glad I found this site. I'm 9 wks. along in my FIRST pregnancy and while I'm not really "showing", I'm definately having trouble fitting into my jeans. At my first doc appt. he remarked that my uterus is slightly larger than normal for being 9 wks. I'm freaked out that I may be having twins now. Has anyone else had a large uterus and had it NOT be twins?
