Belly pics....oh no!

A few days after my BFP, around 3 weeks 3 days

Today, 4 weeks 6 days...

This does not look right...at this rate I'll gain 20lbs before the first trimester is over! (I've already gained 3lbs)

Sorry about the size, I tried to resize...

This was me at 4 weeks, for reference:

Veru cute bumps! Wow Lori, you can't get an U/s any sooner? Just wondering if you have more than 1! You are just belly! My belly is also growing. I've never popped out this early myself. I'd take a pic but I am so full abd bloated I cant! LOL!

Nice! I figure I would show early this time since I already had strangers asking me my due date at 13 weeks with DS. lol. Sorry it's a horrible picture from 2 days ago. Probably should have been wearing a lighter shirt. Wink I can no longer button or zip my pants. Looks like I'll be digging out my maternity clothes this weekend and giving them a wash!

It is pretty bellytastic, isn't it?! I've been caught of guard for sure.
My doppler hb appt is next wednesday and I am SO excited. This is my third baby, so i guess that's why my belly is so gung ho. I always felt like i showed early, but this belly is kah-razy! I'm rather disinclined to do early ultrasounds after doing lots of research on them. We'll see what my midwife thinks though!

Ok, where did you get those maternity strech pants? I've been so bloated that I've just been wearing my target yoga pants. Being bloated is so not fun!

Well here's my 8 weeks and 6 days belly. I've decided to go by my LMP instead of my last u/s for how far along I am since high risk said that's what they'd do anyway and I only measure 4 days behind and my due date only changed by like...3 days or something. Plus if I go by LMP I'll be 9 weeks tomorrow and that makes me feel so much closer to 12. Haha. Anyway here's my belly. Anyone know if this is a normal looking belly for 9 weeks with first pregnancy? I feel huge! Lol.

Love the pictures! I'll try to get DH to take one of me soon so I can post it.

With DD, I was like 7 or 8 months pg and still had people who didn't know I was pg. I was teeny tiny the whole time - to the point where the midwives ordered an extra u/s just to make sure she was growing properly. But this time... I had surgery back in November, and during the surgery they discovered that my uterus was fused to my rectum, and so they severed it (lovely, huh?). So now that it's free to do what it wants, it has popped out super quick. I am absolutely massive compared to last time. Blum 3

They're at target for $24 and i LOVE them! I dont remember the brand name but they have an L somewhere in there (lange i think?) and a pink tag. They are all i wear these days because mat jeans are too heavy to hold up well this early on and normal jeans push in on babyville and hurt. They're definitely thick enough to wear on their own and they are comfy and cute at the same time. I went back and bought 3 more pair! lol.

Totally keep your LMP! Due dates are just fluff anyway- babies come when babies come!

Your belly is looking great! Right on target for 9ish weeks, congrats!

Better one from today:

Not too much of a belly, but enough of one where I can't zip or button any of my pants! Guess maternity clothes are coming out later in the week. I'm so much bigger than I was at this point with DS! lol

So jealous of the belly pics. It's sooo hard being plus sized and seeing all the cute belly pics. I'm almost 10 weeks and I don't look any different. I've actually lost 12 lbs since I found out I was pregnant.

Thanks for the info! Regular strech pants have such a low rise that I normally feel like when I bend over the world can see my crack. And I'm a pretty fit woman. with a normal size rear. I Think strech pants are just intended for 10 year olds. lol. Or people with teeny tiny butts.

I hear your pain Tiffany, I'm considered plus size too and I don't think I started "looking" pregnant and not just "fat" until almost 20 weeks with DS and I was WAAAAY thinner than I am now. >

Here is my 5 week belly :roll:

I didn't show with DS until I was 18 weeks. I had people at 20 weeks asking me if I was sure I was pregnant when I was holding a baby shower for a friend. Even at 37 weeks when I was at our office christmas party people were saying how small I was. They couldn't beleive I was less than three weeks away from full term. Everyone thought my due date was somewhere closer to March, not the beginning part of January. Now I've heard you show earlier with the second time around, we'll see. So far, I'm a teensy bit bloated but I have no problem wearing my regular pants around work. My jeans are teensy bit tighter, but I can still button them.
