So...I'm 5 weeks today which is still estimated since I haven't gone to the doc yet but should be 5 weeks. Well anyway, I noticed this morning that my tummy is sticking out just below my belly button. Of course I'm thinking this can't possibly be a pregnancy thing because I'm only 5 weeks but I haven't been eating more or worse. I've been eating less and better even and have pretty much cut out salt and doing a lot more fruits and veggies so...I don't get what this is. When I suck my stomach in my sides go in but the middle of my abdomen doesn't. I asked DH what he thought since I feel like he should know my body about as well as I do by now and he said there's no way that it's fat because it's harder and doesn't squish like fat. Lol. I'm trying so hard to have a good diet and not gain more than I absolutely have to especially since I'm so short and have varicose veins and all but man...any idea what this little hardish pooch is?
Bloating is really common in early pregnancy! That's probably what it is! Of course, expecting number 5 I could put on maternity clothes and look 5mo prego lol. You shouldn't feel your uterus until around week 12.

My tummy looks the same as it did before I got pregnant. Maybe you're a bit bloated? It would be way too early for you to show. The more kids you have, the earlier you show apparently. My sister's having #3 and she started showing around 10-11 weeks. Her 1st & 2nd were later.
Sounds like you're doing great with eating healthy
Maybe I am just bloated...don't really feel like it though. Usually if I'm bloated my eyes are swollen and my rings barely fit on my fingers and it's just the middle of my stomach. Maybe it's just a different kind of bloat. Lol.
I agree with the others!! Ive got the same thing going on!! Def feeling bloated as well! Our babies are so tiny right now there is no way they can make us show yet
Well I wasn't thinking it was actual baby yet since it's the size of a seaseme seed right now but I was wondering if it could be my stuff all down there swelling up and moving around making me look bigger though I suppose that would be bloat. Lol. I think it's just a different kind of bloat than I'm used to so it feels weird. Makes me feel a little more like there's something in there though. Only 3 more days until my first ultrasound!
I feel like I cant suck in anymore- although the rest of my body doesnt feel bloated- my stomach definately is. It's embarassing because its noticeably bloated- somebody asked if I had a little baby pooch right there- I said no- I havent even told anyone Im preg yet so its really awkward... But I normally have a fairly flat stomach so now its like a littel puffed out- but I have trouble going *TMI* to the bathroom lately- so I've upped my fiber intake and started taking a probiotic, but my jeans are definately tight and so I've been trying to wear more flowy shirts.. I really dont watn to say "YEAH, IM PREGNANT.. 6 WEEKS, THE BABY IS THE SIZE OF A SEED THANKS FOR NOTICING" haha... HATE this stage- my stomach didnt seem this bloated/puffy with DS.. Feel like I shld get that tight underwear thing! Hurts my stomach to try n suck in all the time hahah
I can't suck it in either. Sucks. tonight we celebrated my sons 11th bday and went out for pizza with the fam after we took him to SF zoo. Anyway 3 of them mentioned how I look heavier especially in themid section. I always go up or down 2-3 lbs so its not noticeable. And they see it. I was so irritated! I didn't even eat pizza! (gave bread up for lent). But it's a bloaty feeling. I love the time when you look pregnant and not just fat! LOL!
