So after being asked yesterday in Dillions by some random person how far along I am (mind you we haven't started telling people that i'm pregnant), I decided to look and see what I look like now at 9 weeks vs my 1st pregnancy. The most compareable pictures are the 13/14 week ones.

So here I am yesterday.




And these are from my last pregnancy.

13 weeks~


14 Weeks~



Don't think this is going to stay a secret much longer I'm not ready to share the news yet!

Anyone else having these same experiences.

Same here, I am 9 weeks but with twins and the bloating is making me HUGE! I am taking progesterone shots which I think may make it worse. I am definately not ready to tell people at work for at least three more weeks but its going to be hard to keep hiding this bump. I can't button any of my pants and already borrowed some belly bands. I hope my appointment on Monday goes well so I can feel a little more relaxed about it.

I'd post a pic but I couldn't figure out how...

I am huge as well. I'm a size 2 but my stomach is so big! It looks off. I look like you but with more loose skin.

I'm a size 2/3 as well in pants, but thankfully (not that I'm happy about it any other time) my work uniforms smallest size they can order is a 4, so I can still wear my work pants

I can see it. You do tend to show earlier in subsequent pregnancies. I was showing pretty obviously around 8/9 weeks with #2.

I feel like I am already huge. I'm a couple days shy of 6 weeks, so not nearly as far along as some of you guys since I'm due in late Dec. But geez...I've never felt so bloated and big this early. I hopped on the scale today, half expecting to see a 5 lb weight gain...but whew, it wasn't quite that bad....2lbs...which is pretty negligible and might not even be true because your weight can fluctuate a couple pounds throughout the day as well. My ultrasound on the 13th can't come soon enough...I have to know if this is multiples (30% chance due to injectables I was on), or if I am just super bloated and eating too much already. lol.

Glad to know I'm not alone! I started showing early with all my kids, and this being baby #4 I should probably have expected it but I was really hoping that since I've put on a few lbs. the past few months from stress, that my belly would hid a little longer. That's apparently not happening. I've been doing some side work for my old job and trying to hide it, but I don't feel right showing up in stretchy pants, but then I'm miserable in my jeans and just want to undo them! Ready for the bloating to go away and it to be from baby though!

I know how you all feel.. Strange.. i went to dunkin donuts the other day and the lady asked me if I was pregnant. I was like yes.. I guess she figured out b/c i always wear tight tops and now i'm wearing lose tops but you can also see my tummy.. I'm so bloated also... I've been wearing maternity pants since I found out I was pregnant.

You are all to sweet and I know most of us are enduring the sorrows of being so dang bloated!

I've been wearing my coat all the time.... which i'm tired of burning up. I have my first appt tomorrow, then it'll probably be time to out myself.
