Baby bump already?!

Is anyone else already starting to show a bit? This is my second pregnancy, and with my first I was into my second trimester before really pooching out. I'm almost 8 weeks and already my belly has popped out a bit! I'm really hoping this is normal for a second pregnancy. I workout pretty regularly, and I'm having a hard time eating much because of the nausea, so I'm pretty confused!

I definitely popped earlier with my second than my first. And this time around (my third) I had to start wearing maternity pants at 6 weeks!!! Yikes. No hiding this one for me haha! I have people asking me if I am about 3 or 4 months along. Wow lol.

I have extra padding so I don't show a lot anyways until I'm about to pop with the full grown kids I birth...but this is my #3 and I was talking to my OB this morning and said I sleep on my tummy and I am feeling a knot just above my pubic bone. He said it is likely the uterus already making it's way up. He said it is very common to start showing much earlier with subsequent pregnancies.

I have read and heard this a lot. Just continue with minor exercise if you do not want to gain too much weight. At the end of the day as long as it's a healthy baby....well the body change can be reversed eventually Smile
