Am I delusional...

So this is my 3rd pregnancy but 2nd child and I swear I already have a tummy. I mean I haven't gained any weight, I'm still at 137 but my shorts are snug and I see it. I'm only 4 weeks!!! With DS I had to go up a pants size at 8 weeks but this is a little early right?!? Any mamas out there experiencing the same thing?

Nope your not crazy!!! The increase in progesterone causes you to bloat. Once your body has been pregnant, it knows what to do the next time....

Re: Am I delusional...

I tried to put on a pair of pants that fit perfectly last week and yesterday when I tried to put them on I couldn't even button them. I don't think I have gained weight but my body is already changing. I am 6 weeks pregnant and this is my 3rd child.

Re: Am I delusional...

I was only 4 weeks and had a huge upper portion of my belly too. there was no way I could hide it long. the kids even asked if I was preggo. I lied and said no.

each baby will make you look bigger quicker cause you stretch out more easily. the beginning part is bloat tho.

Re: Am I delusional...

I would have been about 4 weeks pregnant when I "knew" with my first child because I felt fuller/firmer. I didn't test until closer to 6-7 weeks though. But I knew without a doubt I was pregnant. I could feel the change in my body.

Re: Am I delusional...

I'm a fluffy mommy so it takes me a loooong time until I can see a difference. LOL But you're not delusional! Ditto what the others say. I've had many friends that popped almost immediately and it just grew and grew.

Re: Am I delusional...

Last pg I was wearing some maternity pants by now. Surprisingly I'm not yet, but I think that's also because I just lost a fair amount of weight this winter and still have clothes with lots of room in them. I do feel like my pants are way tighter in the evening though, I'm in my pjs super early these days

Re: Am I delusional...

I've got some seriously intense bloating going on too, and it fluctuates all day. I'm waiting for someone at work to ask, since I recently lost all of my baby weight from DD so I feel like it's REALLY noticeable. Glad to know it's not just me!
