The scale doesn't show I have gained weight but the bloat is horrendous. It's making me look huge and making the pants right.

:lurk:

When I was between five and six weeks pregnant, the bloating was HORRIBLE and it definitely showed on the scale for me! Within a few days, I had been up 7lbs; but, it eventually went away and I was back to my initial weight on the scale.

This is #4 for me... I too lost weight... finally got down to my pre DS#1 weight... Hasnt shown up on the scale yet, but I am def. bloated. I know its that because your uterus doesnt actually pop out of your pelvis till 10 or 12 weeks (if I remeber correctly)... Pregnancies with multiples are a different story. You look beautiful. Totally normal... Plus, maybe you are going to get your wish Wink

I've been gaining weight, and it's really shocking me. With Pearl I was 15 weeks before I started gaining weight. This time around, I'm up several pounds already and I'm not even 6 weeks yet. :confused: This trend better not keep up!

This is my 3rd. I am starting out lighter than my previous pregnancies. I feel like my symptoms are more noticeable than ever though. I am having so much cramps and bloating. My pants are still fitting fine. I don't have a lot of extra money right now so I hope I can avoid maternity clothes for awhile!!

I so know what you mean about money. I kick myself for getting rid of so much of my comphy pregnancy clothes (DD was supposed to be our last... sold or gave people all the good stuff). Luckily I have a few things left, my sister gave me some of hers, which included some of my comfy stuff, and my SIL has some, so once we announce I should be able to get some from her. Though, the only one prego at the same point as me is my other sister, and she is no where near my size. I have 1 pair of shorts that my friend bought me when she went to st. v's... hoping that between the stuff I can borrow/get back that I should have just about enough shirts for this summer (depending on what fits) then all I should need to get is a couple of pairs of shorts to be set. As far as for clothes for when it cools down, I plan on looking through what I get that fits me, and once I know how big I'm getting this summer, I can get what I need at garage sales. I did find a pair of pants at the motherhood outlet mall today... they were an "as is", marked down to $18 (cheap for motherhood), as well as a nice pj long shirt. A friend of mine got away with just buying slightly bigger pants (from garage sales, st v's, good will, etc) and then getting a belly band from Target. I just know for me, I have a really hard time finding stuff that fits and thats comphy. I really like the pants/shorts with the long elastic wast. I've found that they fit way longer, and are way more comphy, than the front panal, or any of the older styles.

I actually lost weight in the days leading up to my BFP but I don't think I look it. I'm already a bit overweight and really need to keep an eye on my weight gain so as to not exceed 15-20lbs (yeah, right...) I by no means look pregnant yet, just fat! XD I don't have too much pregnancy stuff left over from DS because for the most part I was lucky enough to fit into my regular clothing up until 7 or 8 months but I have a feeling that with weighing a ton more now than I did when I got pregnant with DS I won't be so lucky this go.
