Re: Please tell me im not the only one woth a bump already!!

I'm bloated- not a bump, more of a bloat lol. I actually want to lose 5lbs before I start gaining baby weight- not dieting no worries, just cutting out sugar and exercising, today is day 1 of no sugar. The longest I've ever gone is 14 days- wish me luck!

Re: Please tell me im not the only one woth a bump already!!

Oooh I should go off sugar with you! It's always easier with a buddy.

None of my regular pants fit anymore, I'm only 7 weeks and have broken out the maternity pants. This is my second. But seriously, I thought I'd have a couple more weeks. I guess it's time to start announcing more before people just think it's from too much Turkey.

The only problem with breaking out the maternity pants is I'm still not really big enough for them. I need a good first trimester maternity jean. I did make one pair myself out of a pair of stretchier jeans but they need to be washed. I am looking forward to the comfort of maternity pants though!

I made a belly band with my last pregnancy for the 1st tri...but got rid of it this summer

I'm just working on the unbuttoned pants for now.

Re: Please tell me im not the only one woth a bump already!!

well today old navy had 75% off all adult sweaters. So i snagged a couple cute maternity vneck sweaters, a couple maternity vneck w/ collar sweaters, a shirt for me and a nice work sweater for dh...all for less than $50! saved over $100!

But i wore a nice button up sweater to church today...and when I sat down, all the buttons pooched(is that a word?) and it looked terrible! i felt so uncomfortable! these new sweaters are niiiiice. so that was perfect timing!

feelin' really bloated, and definitely not going to love this in between phase

That's great Beth! I went to Old Navy yesterday and was so bummed to find out they didn't carry maternity at that store. They were having 75% off of men's and women's coats though - the sweater one is way better!

I'm jealous of people who can use the belly band thingies.. my hips and legs EXPAND when I'm preggo- there's no way I can fit in my jeans once I start showing. I can usually only get them up to my thigh

Ok, I did have 3 sips of Dr. Pepper tonight, the bubbles soothe my tummy. But that was it- everything else I ate today was healthy whole foods!

Definitely bloated here too. DH claims it is all in my head since I am barely pregnant, but I can feel the changes already.

I'll join the no sugar challenge. I am already gluten free and my doc told me that I should really cut back on sugars as well.

Mostly bloated here, too. I'm ok in the morning...but by evening I NEED my sweatpants and feel huge. I can't get too big too fast b/c my SIL is using my maternity clothes until the end of the year. At least it is winter and I can just wear sweatshirts!

OK no sweets for 2 weeks. I'm not going to count ginger ale just because I am still a little sick even after taking Zofran so that's a life saver. 2 weeks! ugh here we come I CAN DO IT! Right???
