I know this is my 3rd child and I'm going to start showing earlier, but puhlease! I am not ready for maternity clothes. I was hoping to make it til the end of the summer so I could just buy some cute fall maternity stuff. Not happy, especially since I'm trying to keep the news quiet until I hit 12 weeks! Anyone else popping their buttons ?

lol not yet, but I understand the concern. I am only 5 weeks though, no change in my size juet yet

Try a hairband looped through the button hole and around the button, that got me through a few weeks

Towards the end of the day my trousers feel more snug but I suspect thats just bloat, since they fit fine in the morning

Seeing as this is my 4th pregnancy I wouldn't be surprised if I do start showing soon. At 10 weeks with my last my uterus was already above my pelvic bone and was starting to show then. Everything is normal in the am, but come 4pm everything is snug and fits tight so it's just bloat for me right now. I've been switching to pj pants around then unless I have somewhere to go. If I need to leave I put on a pair of maternity jeans or use a bellaband until I can get home and put on comfy pants.

I can't button my work pants anymore. Mine is bloat from all the medications I've been taking for my FET. I also showed really early with my DD I had a pretty round tummy by 12 weeks. So while the plan is to keep it a secret until 12 weeks I doubt that will happen

I am a big girl (5'8 and 229 this AM) so it is hard to tell what is baby, bloat, or just my natural fluffiness. Which is why it isn't hard to hide this until 12-16 wks.
Also since this is my 7th pregnancy, my uterus is a bit stretched and I look 5-6 months pregnant on any given day so I am just wearing my stretchy jeans like usual.

It's okay. My skinny jeans feel too tight around my waist now.
I've been sticking to dresses.

Hides my belly well and it makes sense since it's summer.
I've been praying I can wait until fall too!

soooo, we're in the same boat.

I have a lot of bloating well that's what I'm hoping it is. This is my second and I had a basketball belly by 16 wks with my dd and I hear you shoe earlier and earlier with each pregnancy. But I am a lot bigger than with her so I'm praying that I only gain 10-15 lbs with this one I only gained 18 with my dd so hears hoping!!

^ same here. I'm 7.5 weeks and definitely starting to get a belly. My belly was so small last time, it took forever to start really showing.

I have been keeping the top of my jeans open since about week 7! Just bloating, I guess, but at 11 weeks, I think it might be starting to be a legit bump now.

I haven't been able to button things for a while now. It's too uncomfortable. I've been using a rubber band, but I might get some stuff from my SIL tomorrow.

I can't button anything anymore without discomfort. But I did get a pair of maternity pants that don't really look like maternity pants. That helps.
