Anyone else showing?

I'm big girl already but man!!! Normally i look down and only see boobs, i'm 11 weeks and my stomach already sticks out several inches. Nothing is fitting me anymore not even my stretchy pants. Anyone else showing a lot this early?

Yes! I went to a friends baby shower yesterday and everyone thought I was due about the same time she is...April, with twins! I've got a picture on my camera I'll try and remember to post when I get home from my mom's. I popped around 11 weeks, and popped a lot. It's stay about the same since then, but it's still really big.

I definitely am, to me! I see lots of belly; but, I've been trying to wear clothes that aren't so revealing because I haven't told everyone at work. The people that do know haven't said anything to me about my belly, though, so I don't think it's that noticeable to everyone else!

I have no idea. Sometimes I think maybe I am. But then other times I blame it on bloating.

I won't call it until I can't button my pants LOL!

I definitely am! Everyone at work knows already just by looking at me. They have all asked... ha ha!

I was already carrying some extra cute chubby tummy around before baby came along, so it is not obvious to anyone except me. I know my body so I can see the slow changes coming on for sure and my jeans are no fun to wear anymore, hello comfy lounge pants! It also doesn't help that i have lost some weight since getting pregnant (thank you morning sickness lol!). But I've been measuring my stomach and I'm up about 1 1/2 - 2 inches. I guess I will just need to wait a bit longer until I hopefully blow up the in 2nd trimester (which starts next week YAY!!!)

I can't button my pants anymore but no one has said anything. I was going to wait to tell everyone until it was very noticeable but my kids are too excited and are telling everyone Smile

I started wearing a Bella Band at 8 weeks-though it's mostly just bloating Smile

My stomach is starting to feel more solid, rather than the squishy fluffiness of normal haha. I'm a bigger girl too so I won't "show" as soon but I definitely know it's there.

Well, at my friends request I took a picture last night and was startled to see that I was showing a lot more than I thought I was! So, YAY! Even my husband said last night I was rounding out. I think he had been a bit nervous to say it earlier, thinking I might go moody and snap on him for implying I was bigger. But I love having a good excuse for being chubby now! Pregnant and proud!

Behold my 13 week baby tummy!

I caved today and went maternity clothes shopping! I cannot even express how much more comfortable I am and how much better I think I look. It has been the emotional/self esteem boost I didn't realize I needed! I ended up getting a pair of jeans, a pair of black slacks, three casual tops, a dressy top and a cami. I was so happy to pack away my button up pants and now I look like Im rocking a true baby bump. I feel like I am finally at a point where I can start enjoying this pregnancy!

I am sporting some extra weight anyway, but I am not really showing at all. I can still wear my jeans buttoned. I did go buy some lounge pants yesterday and think I'll be living in them for a while because my maternity pants are just way too big. Don't worry though, I'll catch up! My boys weighed 9 lbs 5 oz and 10 lbs 2 oz. I'm sure I'll be HUGE by the end!

One thing I noticed for sure is that this baby seems to sit higher, if that's possible? When I eat it feels like everything is squashing into my lungs already. lol

Love the bump. Smile

I'm starting to show a little more so it's making it feel a bit more real! I'm still going to wear my clothes for as long as I can, though! haha

I'm pretty chunky, so I don't think Ill look pregnant for a long while Sad My pants still fit fine, although I do notice that they're not as tight when I first get dressed and then by the time I get home from work, they feel tight. DH says my belly looks a bit bigger, but I don't see it.

I also started out a little heavy but I think I have the same profile as the pic above! People are definitely noticing at work and my belly is firming and rounding out in the forward direction! A couple pair of my work are a little snug now so the ones that are not are very comfortable by comparison. As with baby #1 I also find that my thighs get snugger in my pants. Oh and the boobs! Yikes. Put on my sports bra the other that and almost had to lay on my back and hold my breath! Smile

I've got nothing! I haven't gained one pound and all my clothes still fit. A couple of my friends didn't start showing till 5 or 6 months, which I'm hoping it doesn't take that long, I'm ready to rock a cute bump!

Congrats to you with your adorable bump!

I'm starting to notice changes. But I'm still not convinced that it's a baby bump let. hahaha. I didn't start to really show with Will until I was 5 months along... Even though I know with 2nd (and subsequent) pregnancies you show sooner, I'm still not ready to "call it".

I've lost 10lbs. But all my pants are fitting tighter around the waist. I'm hoping to put some weight back on soon. I'm starting to feel too thin. I know for my height (5'6) my weight isn't low (145lbs) but it's the lowest my weight has been in years and I feel too skinny.
