Already!?

I'll be 5 weeks tomorrow with my 3rd and I swear my jeans are already getting tight! Please tell me this is normal.

Re: Already!?

I think its normal, My dress pants were too tight to button before I even got a postive pregnancy test! Lol. I was trying to get dressed for my brothers wedding and was like what the heck. . these pants fit last week. . . One of my first indications that I might have been pregnant. And I heard you show faster the more children you have. this is my 2nd and Ill be honest I been in dreses and stretch pants the last week so Im not sure how my jeans fit!

Re: Already!?

DDC - hoping to be here in about a week or so

I think the bloat is common around this time. My doc calls it "progesterone swelling" from the increase of progesterone in early pregnancy.
For some people, it goes away after a couple weeks and they can wear their jeans again. For me, not so much. My last pregnancy, I had to wear stretchy waist pants at 6 weeks and full on maternity pants by 9 weeks.

AHH!!! I noticed that too, I just lost 20lbs but in the last 2 weeks my pants were TIGHT. :-( Luckily I haven't gained anything but my poor belly hehe. Guess I need to get on sewing up some maternity stuff.

Yeah, same here! I didn't show with DS1 until 14 weeks, 8 weeks with DS2, and here I am at 5 weeks with that awkward "showing"... you know, the one that happens more at night time, with a full bladder, or full belly. I can't suck it in like I could before. It's like the muscles went right back to that "relaxing" position.

Re: Already!?

That is so funny... This is my 2nd and I am wearing stretchy pants because I don't want anyone to know and my stomach popped almost overnight! I also eat non stop and drink tomato juice all the time...

Yup, I'm about ready to pull my maternity clothing out. I feel like my stomach has popped, and I have an appetite to rival my DH's, which is saying something.. lol

Re: Already!?

I see that my stomach is bloated but I haven't had to wear different clothes yet. I wear pretty loose things though.

Re: Already!?

Yoga pants and capri's are my best friend!! I still have about 15# hanging on from my baby fat from DD's birth so my jeans were tight anyways, now its almost miserable!
