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
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.

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!
#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.
