I think I'm showing

I am feeling really paranoid :eek: I can almost swear my stomach has expanded since I found out that I am expecting...I am now wearing really loose clothing at work because I don't want anyone to know yet....tucking my stomach in is no longer working Sad Any one else feel like they are showing?....My DH says its twins....:eek:

Here! Are you really small? The bloating can really make someone look like theyre showing early. Everyone is telling me im having twins lol. I was in maternity clothes very early with DS and they say you show earlier on the next pregnancies so we shall see..Good luck keeping things hidden Smile

Yep - I feel like I have been showing for about 2 weeks now. And it hurts to try to suck it in so I just go on letting people think I am gaining weight and getting chubby. LOL

I definitely feel like my stomach is bigger and my favorite jeans are snug already :confused: I just found out and now I think I'm gonna be hopping right into maternity jeans! I keep getting people commenting on twins too lol.

Gotta love bloat...cause seriously, the baby is about the size of a strawberry at 7 weeks...obviously no baby showing...nope, just me and the belly I had prior to being preggo.

As fir twins, in the beginning you actually aren't that much bigger, thankfully. But there are lots of women on here that look MONTHS preggo when they are still really new and it's only 1. They just get pretty preggo bellies early...kinda wish I did.

This is preggo #4 and with DS#4, I didn't really show until 18 weeks. And my twins...well, I wasn't even big enough to have my doctor say something until I was 15-18 weeks...that's when I found out it was twins!

I'm not too small but I used to be a size 7 before my son and now Im about an 11.....well plus the stomach Sad I can't wait for the weather to get nicer so that I'll at least be able to hide my belly with "flowy" sundresses....I really don't want anyone here at work knowing yet...

Woohoo for bloat. LOL I was feeling super fat on Sunday, but pretty sure that I was just all blown up like a balloon. I'm feeling pretty normal now. But I'm not even 5 weeks yet, so yeah.

Bloat is hitting me hard. I'm in maternity jeans today at work but they keep falling down and getting in my way so the plan for tomorrow is regular pants (tight) but a mat type shirt to hide the belly a little more. I hate this stage. I feel so fat and ugly!!!!!

I so agree! Pregnant ladies are invariably adorable. People look at your big belly and smile. But during the in between phase, I feel like people just give you the side eye, like "Whoah, she's gained weight." Somebody should make shirts or something that say "I'm not fat, I'm pregnant."

I found one that says "WARNING: Don't say huge!" I need that one. My mom told my niece I was huge when I was pg with DS and it caused a huge - hormonal fight. It upset me so bad, lol.

I started showing about 2 weeks before I got pregnant! LOL Doesn't take much to make you look pregnant after already having a baby.

I love this, but I could never wear it because the punctuation isn't correct and it would bother the crap out of me!

Also, it'd be great if they modeled a shirt like this on...you know, a PLUS SIZED mannequin?

When I started TTC with DS I was 135. I gained 15 lbs with fertility meds and then 50 lbs with baby. So I ended up 200 lbs (well, that's where I stopped counting) on delivery day. I JUST lost all 65 lbs and am starting out this pg at 135. HOPING not to gain 50 lbs again! I'm only 5'3 - 5'4.

ROFL - Love it! And yes - I hate when every outfit it modeled on a size 2. Can I see someone with hips like me model a shirt so I can get an idea of how it will look?!
