Ok so I'm now only 6 weeks along and my pants have already started to get tight around the waist. I keep trying to suck it in but it doesn't seem to go in any further. I know it can't be bub yet and its just fluid/bloating etc but regardless of whats causing it, its strating to look very obvious that I'm pregnant.

So I'm wondering if any of you have found that you've started showing much earlier in your later pregnancies?

I've only had four but I definitely find this to be true.

Wow yeah! This is 10th pregnancy for me, will be our 8th baby. I am ten weeks so the baby is the size of a peanut, nevertheless . . . my 8 year old comes up to me and says, " Mom, your getting so fat because your preganent (spelled the way the kids pronounce it!) ! I am already in that akward stage where you just look chunky, not preggo! I can't stand this phase!

I'm about 9-10 weeks with number 9.....and still in my regular pants, but buttoning is becoming more of an issue . I'll probably start into something more comfortable next week, at least a little more forgiving waist than jeans. Our babe is still a secret, so I'll have to suck it in for our kids birthday party on Friday with family. I'm not looking forward to sharing it with them, maybe when it's born

But after about number 5, it was obvious earlier.

I am six weeks with this bub and I am still looking pretty normal, although I was so bloated the last two weeks it seems to be getting better this week. I show around the same time with each of them. It seems in the 16-20 week window I just pop.

I'm 7 weeks and still in my regular clothing. The last day or so, I have left the top button of my jeans open. I think it's more bloating than anything else.
This is my 6th!
Mommy to 6 amazing blessings!!

I have no pelvis to speak of, but this is my third official pg, and I was in mat tops and pants at 5 weeks this time-so yes

Lucky mother to five!
