    I'm 10 weeks pregnant with my second baby (my 1st turned 10 months today) and none of my pants fit. With my first I didn't wear maternity pants till 16 weeks. I don't look pregnant to strangers but I feel huge! Anyone else going through this?

    Yup...same for me too.

    My husband always says the first baby was in a "compact" and baby number 2 rides in the "sedan". A nice way of staying I got big early!

    Same here. I am a little over 9 weeks and I totally have a baby bump to the point where it is noticeable to others! I was going to try to wait until after the 2nd trimester to even tell people at work, but there is seriously no hiding it! I'm 5'3 and 118 lbs, so its not even like I could play it off like a put on a little weight, I'm the same size everywhere and then boom, there is a little belly. lol

    I didn't even need maternity clothes last time until I was close to 6 months!!

    I'm a first timer and I'm in week 7. You cant tell yet from the exterior but I feel bloated. How long before you started showing with your first pregnancy?

    gnat01 responded:
    Totally! I remember baby #2 was so quick to show for me!
    I can only imagine what #3 will be! Plus all the room he/she has in there to grow now! I'm afraid I'm going to end up with a big baby! LOL
    I'm only 5.5 wks, but already feel bloated...and my bbs are HUGE. UGH...

    Hello ladies
    I am pregnant with my 5th child! I am only 5 wks, but feel bloated already. I had twins a year ago (my angel babies! ) I am not new to this process! LOL But yes you do show earlier with each pregancy. The womb gets a lil looser I think! Idk!

    With my 1st child (13 yrs ago) I didn't wear maternity jeans till almost 5-6 months! Just have the pair in your closet incase. You know the better you feel, the better you look!

    Good luck ladies and I pray for healthy babies!
    Anyone with a Jan due date?

    I am on my first pregnancy, and I am too 7 weeks. I feel bloated and I almost feel like aim am showing. Not sure if it's the bloating. I am 5'7 and 165. I gained 5pounds already, and I'm so bummed about that, now I'm 170.
