I know at 6 weeks the baby is just a peanut, so why do I look like I'm already 4 months pg?

I know they say you show earlier and earlier with each pregnancy, but wow! This is crazy!

When did YOU start showing? Pics are great if you have them.

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

This is my first and I'm not showing yet, but I've seen ladies that show quickly from bloat.

This is my 5th to make it this far and my mom just implied that I look about 5 months pregnant. I was not amused.

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

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

Good luck keeping it on the DL ladies!

I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow. Mine started as bloat but it never really went away. It went from bloat to belly lol. I told when I was six weeks cause I really could not hide it anymore!

#2 I was really showing by 12 weeks (looked 5 months pregnant) and I am so nervous this time because I am waiting to tell work till at least 12 weeks.

Hoping to shed some lbs (just from being healthy not dieting) so that might help.

This is #5 for me, and my uterus has risen above the pubic bone already. I have more of a pooch now.

With my third baby (2nd pregnancy) I didn't show til 7 months. This one I feel less bloated and than the previous one, so I don't expect to show anytime soon.
