Has anyone outgrown their regular clothes yet?

I know this seems a bit early - but I have started to outgrow my work clothes. I recently lost all my baby weight and went down to a size I was very happy with. However, when getting dressed for work this morning those same clothes were too tight. I could have buttoned the pants but I would have been miserable all day. Its so early for this - especially when the baby is the size of a pea.

Gotta love the bloat, huh?! I'm still comfy in my regular clothes but I hate anything tight so most of my clothes fit me a bit loose anyway. By the end of the day...whoa! I do love my yoga/workout pants, though, so I will be living in those for quite some time!!

Yay for the bloat! Wink

No, I haven't outgrown my clothes yet, but I just found out today, so that would be REALLY fast. Like, using-the-pregnancy-as-an-excuse-to-gorge-myself-all-day-today fast. Lol

I have heard that you start showing a lot faster with second kids than with your first though.

With my first I didn't really start to get tight in my clothes until 12+ weeks and wasn't in maternity clothes until 20 weeks. With #2 I was in full maternity clothes by 9 weeks. I know it had to be mostly bloat...Isn't pregnancy fun Smile Have you tried getting a belly band??

My work clothes are the same way, ive been keeping them unbuttoned because if I had a buttone on them (it popped off lol) i would be squeezing the life out of myself lol

Glad I'm not the only one, LOL. I joke that I have a "titties-do" (as in "my belly sticks out further than my titties do"), and I'm not even 6 weeks yet! I'm fat, I know, but still - I was NOT this big last week.

I am definitely bigger right now than I was at this point with my other pregnancies. With DS, I was in maternity clothes at 20 weeks (and that only b/c I flat out refused to wear them...I should have been in them a few weeks before!), with DD, at 12 weeks. This time around, I'm thinking I'll be lucky to make it to 9 weeks!

With Nicholas I was in maternity pants by 12 weeks and I think it will be earlier this time. I am on my last hole in my belt buckle but my pants still are pretty loose without it. I hate the belt though..it makes me have a muffin top and I'm afraid I am squishing baby. I guess it is about time to break out the bella band.

I was just thinking about this today and wondering if I'll be pulling out the maternity sooner this time.

We were going to wait to tell the family but I had to tell my sister so she could send 'our' maternity clothes back. I didn't start wearing them the first time around until almost halfway through, but I already feel like the bloat alone is pushing me out of my normal clothes. Hooray for working from home and PJ pants!

You guys made me feel so much better. I'm up a few pounds too but haven't been eating any more or any worse than usual. A least it seem to be normal!
