showing already???

To start with, I'm not sure the EDD in my ticker is accurate. I'm just going with what I think was the first day of my LMP. I have a dating ultrasound booked for the 25th so I might be further along than I think

Anyway, I have a little belly already:eek: Maybe I'm just bloated? I'm pretty active and have a small frame but I have a belly now.

This is baby #3 for us so I know I'll probably start showing earlier but this is way too early!! We're heading to the cottage for the week and I think it's going to be noticeable when I'm in my bathing suit. Maybe people will think I'm just gaining weight.....lol
Is anyone else experiencing this?

When I put my dress on for church this morning and looked in the mirror I thought, "Whoa! I look pregnant!!" I have definitely noticed that I showed earlier and earlier with each one Smile I think we need to see a pic!!

Oh yes, as much as i am embarrassed to admit it, I am definitely showing! I think it's all just bloating, and I'm pretty overweight to begin with, so I just look extra chubby! But, I was getting ready for church this morning too and realized that none of my pants comfortably fit anymore! Oh well, I guess it's to be expected with this being my third baby. Guess I need to go do some shopping! I just hope no one asks me how far along I am...7 weeks and buying maternity clothes already! Haha

i definitely have a little belly that wasn't there 2 weeks ago. if i really concentrate, i can hold it in, but it's like the muscles have already relaxed in preparation for being stretched beyond belief in the next few months. Wink

Me too:eek: although I think it's mostly bloating and the fact that I've been restricted to 20 min/day exercise!

Glad you posted this because I was thinking the same thing! This is my 3rd also, and I have been noticing my pants/shorts getting tighter already. lol

I've also had to stop my regular exercise so that might have something to do with it too.

I have been so busy and running around but at roughly 6 weeks I have a bigger belly than I had full term with Ivybeth.

I was going to post this exact same thing!! My pants are definitely tighter and my lower abdomen feels harder. This is my third also and I remember wearing not fitting into any of my regular clothes with DD by 9 weeks.

I showed much earlier with #2, and now that this is #3 I can tell that I'm much more bloated than I thought I'd be at this point. So I'm thinking that I'll probably show earlier with this one too. Then again, I probably just look fat! he he!

Unfortunately bloating. I am not even 5 weeks along and I am definitely bloated which gives me a pseudo baby bump. The intestines I believe get particularly bloated which is around the general vanity of the uterus.
