that I've already gained weight in my stomach? I know my stomach is bigger and I'm only 5w2d. Is it possible that it's because I was pregnant last year for 23w and then never really lost all my excess weight because I was too depressed to exercise after losing Katrina and now it's just showing sooner?

I swear I could easily pass as about 13 weeks based on the size of my stomach!

It could be alot of water gain or bloating. I had this early on, too.

I agree that it's probably bloat/water gain, but, I will tell you that with each PG I've shown earlier and earlier. Things move around a lot faster. There is less muscle tone. Think of it this way. You know when you blow up a balloon for the first time? The balloon starts all tight and perfect shaped. Then, let the air out. Doesn't quite look the same. And, it's a lot easier to blow up the second time. (I know. Kind of a bad analogy, but it's the one I always think of... sorry)
How are you feeling? I hope everything's going well! KUP

I agree its probably bloating too, I was really bloated early on in this pregnancy

My first weight loss goal is to lose 21lbs, which is 10% of my body weight

I also agree, it's probably bloating, I had it too, I looked very pretty early on, then it went away and I actually looked pg not bloated pg.

Yup! Because of this I was wearing maternity clothes earlier. I didn't gain a lot of weight in the beginning, but I did show a whole lot early.

With each baby I got bigger faster, I look 35 wks right now but the plus side is you may feel the baby fluttering sooner than you did with Katrina.
