Ok ladies, is anyone else showing already? I am a fairly petite girl, but I didn't think at 5 weeks(ish) I'd be showing already!?!? And I can't tell if I'm just bloated (probably) or what but there's a definite pooch. I know I'm not farther along than about 5 weeks for several reasons.....when my ex-bf & I broke up I had 2 periods between then & now. My current BF (and baby daddy lol) and I have been together for 6 weeks & I had a period before him & while we were dating. Also, the first test I took last week was sooo faint, you could tell I had tested super early. So I know I am not like 2 or 3 months along. But my belly is already pooching out!!! Maybe it's because this is my third baby & my body is just like "here we go again, better just go ahead & assume the position" or if I am just really bloated since I have been eating like a cow the past two weeks!?!
Any advice or similar experiences?? I have my first dr appt tomorrow and then my ultrasound will be about a week after that to confirm EDD.
Oh my.....what if it's multiples? Lol sorry, I may or may not be freaking out. My brain is on overload. But seriously, every single time I eat or drink ANYTHING I get all bloaty & pooched out. At 4 1/2 weeks? I guess I just need some reassurance. And I realize I won't know anything until I get that ultrasound. But seriously, freaking myself out. Someone please tell me this is normal??
Thanks ladies. I just needed to know ok not the only one. My mom saw me this morning getting ready for work & started freaking out about twins. Lol
And this is what I get for posting while walking through the building that my dr is in. I meant to say "I just needed to know I'm not the only one." My main concern was that when my mom saw my poochy stomach she said "Are you SURE you're only around 4-5 weeks?" And yes, I AM sure. But the bloating is not helping my nerves. HAHAHA. I am so excited about this baby. Hoping there is only 1 in there. I did start showing early with both of my boys, my second of course started showing a lot sooner because my first was only 6 months old when I got pregnant with the second so my body just bounced back into pregnancy form. HAHA. But this one, just seems to be wanting to take over already. And I'm totally ok with that, I just wanted to make sure you guys were experiencing the same thing.
I'm hoping its just bloat lol. But i feel like some of my jeans already feel tigheter! ***!
Oh definitely! I had commented to BF early last week that I needed to STOP snacking because my pants were getting tight. We had gone down to the pool and I had marks on my hips from my dress pants that I had worn to work that day and I said "See! See this!! You have GOT to stop buying Zebra Cakes!" hahaha. Little did I know......
I agree to the bloating, I have been very bloated since about 4 weeks. I even had a bruise on my belly from my pants, those obviously were a bit tight around that area. As far as actually showing, I showed early with #1, but the rest took some times with the latest one being #4, I am pretty small framed and he still didn't pop out until closer to my edd.
i'm starting to show and i know mine isn't bloating because it isn't my full stomach i have a little round pooch in the middle like a 6 inch round spot and it hurts to sit straight up lean over my knees bend over or try to suck it in . . . i should take a picture i just don't know how to upload
my rear has expanded to . . . i got into a nasty fight with some skinny jeans yesterday
