With my first I would have laughed if you said you were showing in the first trimester, but with each kid I show earlier and earlier! I'm amazed at how early you can start to show in pregnancy after you've had a few kids!

I don't know how far along I am now, but I swear it is ridiculously early to be showing already!!! I've stayed consistently around the same size for the last 2 years, so for me to all of a sudden have a gut since two weeks ago... I'm in shock! But things are already firming up above the pubic bone and now my relatively flat stomach has been replaced with a gut!! Seriously?!? Already???? The most ironic part to me is that I significantly upped my veggie and fruit intake and severely cut out junk foods shortly before I found out that I am pregnant! Shortly before I start packing on a gut. So coincidently I've gotten bigger since eating healthier! lol That's reason to bring on the chocolate and fries, right?

Anyone else already noticing a change in their gut?

My pants are tighter and a few pair I can't wear anymore, but I wouldn't say I am showing.

I have a lot of tummy bloat/sticking out I went to wear a button up plaid shirt tonight and my tummy stuck out in it. My jeans still fit fine but my tummy is bloating.

It's just bloat and probably backed up digestive system. Unless you've got twins and are further along, there's no way it's baby.

Well, yeah, I know it's not the baby showing! No matter what EXACTLY is pushing it out, it's being caused by having a growing baby in me. That's what I mean by showing. My body is showing that I'm pregnant.

my pants are tighter and I can't wear a few because I hate the way they dig into my tummy sitting down. I have lots of bloat going on!

being plus size I never feel like I showed very much - with my last the only pic I think I looked pregnant in was the one I took while in labor. lol

but I have noticed my pants are tighter and I have had to wear my bella band a few times.

Ugh- don't know if it's bloat or what, but I've grown a gut for sure. I don't think others notice it, but I can't stop noticing it! I did a google image search of "seven weeks pregnant" yesterday, and that made me feel better- so many different levels of bump! Even women of the same general size were all over the map as far as their stomach growth.

Some my pants are fine, but I did pick up 2 pairs of pants a size bigger- luuuuv them!

I wore a belt to make my jeans not to be too loose but a little bit ago I stopped wearing it because of comfort.

Oh, that's interesting Lindsey (is that your name?)! I would be curious to see how many pregnancies each of those women have had in comparison to their bump! There's no question that I show earlier and earlier with every pregnancy!

Considering I had a baby 3.5 months ago, I'm 100% sure it's from before.

I have noticed a lot more tummy fat. It must be bloating because it's soft. Will my belly get firm later on in pregnancy?

My favorite pair of jeans still fit just fine but i realized today that they must be stretchy because i put on another pair of my jeans that normally fit perfectly and they were tight in the waist. I could still button them but i felt i had a muffin top as they call it So i used my bella band! I'm only 7 weeks!! I didn't use it until around like 20 weeks with my son! Guess it goes to show every time is different. Today i was noticing it kinda actually is starting to look sorta like a baby bump rather than only bloat but i'm not sure that's really possible at 7 weeks.

I am early in my 3rd pregnancy but I am much much thinner ( size 2-4) than I was with my other two. I will tell you that the size you are makes a world of difference of if you show early. I'm not bloated and I am regular as far as bthrm duties. I have a babybump as everyone calls it. I go for an ultrasound on the 30th. I have a very highrisk pregnancy Due to having cervical cancer twice and preclampisia with both my other two children. I know everyone is different on how they carry and each pregnancy is different. Some people show some are bloated and some don't show till later.
Prayers for all who are carrying. It's a long road in the beginning.
