At least I hope it's bloat!

I'm already getting to a point where some of my jeans are feeling snug at the waist. And by evening, my stomach is pooched out like I'm 10 weeks along! I am starting to worry I won't be able to hide this for long...

Anyone else dealing with some major bloat?

I'm starting to feel a bit pudgier in the tummy. My pants sol fit but there isn't a whole lit of wriggle room. Is this your first pregnancy? I've heard after you had one or more you get bigger faster...so basically we are screwed! I plan to just embrace it...when else can you feel proud of your poochy belly ;-)

This would be my third kid, fifth pregnancy though.

Yeah... I've heard the same thing: you show sooner with each subsequent pregnancy. It's probably different for every woman, but that seems to be the general thing at least.

I am definitely pudgier. Hubby says he doesn't see it, but I know he's just being kind. I already pulled out the pants I wore when I was trying to lose the baby weight after my last kid. I figure I got some time until I need them, but just in case... better have them handy.

I always did pop pretty soon. We waited until 12 weeks to tell people we were pregnant with both our kids, and everyone pretty much rolled their eyes and were like, "No kidding. You've been looking pregnant for weeks." lol

I'm craaaaazy bloated. I only have one pair of regular pants that fit me and I'm a whopping 5 weeks pregnant. It sucks. Especially since we haven't really told anyone yet so I can't exactly break out the maternity pants yet.

Mine goes up and down depending on the day. Yesterday I was really bloated, today I am not too bad.

Yes, I pulled out my 1 size bigger pants today, they fit me fine in the morning, and were falling off me by evening

I feel HUGE. Dh was even like, "didn't you say it's only the size of an orange seed tight now". Lol. I seriously look about 13 weeks. Yesterday we took side photos, we plan on taking them every Sunday, and I look visibly different from last week. Twins run in my family, skipped a generation, so I'm secretly hoping that's why. Lol, but I know more than likely its one and I'm just getting fatter.

Oh YES. I had some jeans that were VERY loose (I lost a ton of weight recently after baby #4) and I could barely button them.

Definitely feeling bloated. Aside from fatigue, that was probably one of my first symptoms. It seems to come and go, but I'm bloated more often than I'm not lately.
