Anyone else getting asked if they are pregnant?
I'm only 10 WEEKS and wasn't planning to tell, but I'm not going to lie!

It started at work Thursday with a colleague stating, "you're glowing, why didn't you tell me you are pregnant?!" (I told her)
Friday after a wake, a male friend asked me, "Why aren't you drinking? Do you have a bun in the oven?" (I lied to him)
Saturday, a friend of mine asked me, "You look awful tired, can I help you with anything?" (I asked her why she asked me that, and just admitted to her I was pregnant and she admitted she knew but didn't want to ask me flat out...)
Monday, at work, the office admin had this sh*t eating grin on her face and kept flashing it at me like she knew something, so I finally said, "Why are smiling like that?" and she said, "Because you are, aren't you..." (I told her).

They all told me they knew because I am showing. ARGH - mission hide the bump commencing in 10, 9, 8 ...

Wow showing at 10 weeks? You must be skinny lol.

I don't work and we told everyone right away so no advice here. My constant nausea and exhaustion would have been a dead giveaway anyways LOL.

I am 11 weeks, no one has asked me yet but I have a fuller figure so my guess is if they are assuming they are probably too scared to ask!
I feel like I am showing already though My pants have definitely gotten tighter.

I don't work but people have asked me too. Being a 10th pregnancy plus being about 30lbs underweight I tend to get a bump pretty early. I can't wait for the bump to actually be baby though instead of intestines and whatever else my uterus is pushing up there lol.

Wow that is pretty early! Some people have a weird pregnant instinct they can tell even without someone showing.

I have a little bump myself and have wondered if anyone suspects. My mom asked but i didn't want to say since other people were around at the time and i couldn't tell if she was kidding. I've been more picky about food so she said "You're not pregnant again are you and that's why you've been having weird cravings?" It didn't sound like she'd be particularly thrilled if i was so i sorta made a "Pshh" sound and walked away dismissing it. It was the best i could come up with at the time.

I'm 11 1/2 weeks and starting to show too. But I am carrying twins. As Jessica said, it's not "baby" but rather all the insides being pushed up and out by the uterus. I can feel the top of my uterus between my navel and pubic bone.

I started telling a fee close people at work a few weeks ago, with my boss being the first. I knew I would have more doctors appts than usual since I'm high risk, and was seeing an RE until last week.

If you are comfortable with people knowing this early, then share the news and enjoy it! It will be kind of hard hiding now... Office gossip! Good luck!

I am a grad student and some of my other fellow students knew right away. This one woman said, "And how's the baby?" I was flabbergasted! And secretly excited. She said she could see it in my face. Most people have been very understanding when I say we aren't announcing it publicly yet. I don't know when I'll tell my advisor. But I did tell my boss at the gym because her youngest is about 18 months and she taught all during her pregnancy. After my 10 week appointment next Monday I plan to do a FB announcement.

Expecting our first child in February... Team pink!

Thanks Tasha for my Blinkie!!
