This is #5 for me. I have shown earlier & earlier with each one. I think your body just "remembers" what it's supposed to do. A lot of it can be bloat, too. I was really bloated with this one for a week or 2, but that's gotten better, thank goodness! I thought I was going to have to pull out the maternity pants...and we haven't told anyone yet, so that would have been awkward! lol
We've been married almost 21 years and we're expecting baby #5!
The first 4 were planned by us, this one was planned by God.
This is #3 for me and at first I was going nuts because I thought oh no I'm showing at 8 weeks but I was just bloated. Some days are better then otheres but I know for sure I will show sooner with this one
So if it's bloat...is there anything I can do to help it go down? Maybe eat differently or something. I'm not ready to tell ppl yet, but I'm noticing some ppl's eyes slide down to my tummy when I'm talking to them. lol I mean they already know I've been extra sleepy and now getting nauseaus. I'm TRYING to still hide it! Cooperate body! lol

See! You were where I am!
How far along are you now? Did you steady get bigger or what happened?
Well I am 9 weeks with #5, and I have moved to maternity clothes. My shorts were just too tight, and my shirts were tight around the tummy and puckered between my boobs. Like 5blessings I haven't told anyone, but so far no one's noticed.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I wonder if I should be offended? I was pretty small to begin with (size 4), and went up to 6 before I said screw it and pulled out maternity wear. I "feel" a lot bigger than that. Not to mention I had to jump a cup size in bras too!
I am hoping people don't start to notice until I am closer to the 12 week mark. At least then I could say, "I'm heading into the 2nd trimester." I don't want to tell ANYONE how far along I am right now, it's sorta embarrassing! Gotta love pregnancy!
Well if it makes you ladies feel better, I'm pregnant with #1 and have been in maternity jeans for a week! I thought maybe it was just in my head but one of my employees told me today she can tell because I don't just have a fat belly, it's more rounded... I'm not even 10 weeks! And she didn't say it offensively. ... I. Already 'plus size' no point being offended
