hi. i don't know how far i am yet as im waiting for anultrasound to confirm my dates, but its definitly between 8 and 13 weeks. i have a little belly and im not sure if this is the baby or just fat due to the amount of food ive been wolfing down since i got pregnant. how can itell the difference?some days it is hard and roundish and sometimes just looks like a spare tyre.

I have the same thing! Now I am nine weeks and two days and notice that my spare tire looks fuller in the am than before. My us pictures showed me the baby--about 1.5 centimeters, and the gestational sac a few inches. but the uterus is large (compared to baby and sac) and I notice it is firm--who cares if you gain some weight. Drink lots of water and rub cocoa or shea b___ter on daily. You probably look beautiful!!

is the baby really so tiny at that stage? amazing.... and i dont care about the weight gain! i just want to know if this is the pregnancy showing, or just the extra calories that my icious cravings are causng. i guess i just have to wait..

I think it is both (baby and calories)--but you need those nutrients!! Let your body store it up--as long as it is healthy nutrients. Hopefully you won't, but imagine if you need extra in time to come. That is my number one concern. My prg was unplanned and I ate chips for dinner until I found out!! I also snowboarded for a week prior to finding out!! So nervous!!
