Who is on #3+? (feeling huge pic) xpost oct

This is my third pregnancy and OMG i feel ENORMOUS! Not to mention my symptoms are way more intense than i've had with my other pregnancies (which were basically the same both times). I know a lot of women have felt like they were having twins or something due to how quickly their 3rd belly showed up and I guess i'm now part of that group.

This pic was taken at 7.5 weeks and my belly was flatty flat flat before I was pregnant:

Please excuse my messy walk-in closet...

My HCG levels were definitely high enough to be in the realm for multiples (54,000 at 6 weeks), but the range for HCGs is pretty huge so I dont think that's a real indicator. I won't be getting a US until the big 20 weeker so I'll just have to waddle around feeling fat until then, lol.
Honestly, I doubt it's twins- but I can definitely see what everyone means on how quickly things kick into gear with subsequent pregnancies! Is anyone else totally in this boat?!

I am pregnant with my 4th. Already had to bust out the belly band to keep my shorts up. I just found out that I was pregnant this last week lol. I cant say my tummy was flat before this, but definitly didnt look like this. I know its mainly bloating right now, but I'll take it Smile

I'm pregnant with my 3rd and having major bloating and cramping. I do not remember things being this strong with my other two. I told DH I hope I don't have to buy maternity jeans too soon.

I'm hoping I don't show really early because I want to keep the pregnancy a secret for awhile from family/friends. I'm pretty petite so any weight gain is more noticeable on me than a tall woman anyway.

I totally understand. I am 4ft 9in tall... theres no where for me to grow but out Wink You do tend to pop earlier and earlier with each pregnancy... I think being shorter just enhances that lol

This is my first and I had to go out and buy some new pants today. I also bought a dress because I have some room to grow there. I'm really short and it's been commented on forever by obgyns that have a very small pelvis. So maybe this is why it's showing up so early. I definitely wouldn't say I look pregnant though...just fat right now. Lol. You girls look so cute! I love your little bellies! Smile

#5 and I have one pair of jeans left that I can wear. I did the rubber band trick and the belly band and that helped for about a week. Maternity clothes are coming out this week. That's all right, if I put them on I have a prego belly, I'll take that over looking fat.

#3 for me and I can definitely say I'm popping sooner. I didn't have a flat tummy before (but I was working on it), but this is crazy to me!

Thank you for posting this - I'm on # 3 and am feeling enormous! I'm normally 5'2", 95 lbs soaking wet - and I am already trying to wear clothes to hide my bulging belly.

Oh yes! Last week, before I knew I was pregnant, I noticed I looked pregnant, lol. I put myself on a diet only to discover I'm pregnant!
