Re: Anyone with 2+ showing/carrying differently?

This pregnancy I've been looking VERY pregnant since week 7 compared to MY previous pregnancies. So it may be that I'm finally showing earlier because this is my 3rd child? or because this is the heaviest I've ever been in my life as well as in pregnant weight. Although that's no longer true since I did lose 18lbs in the first 11 weeks or so. I'm down to 148lbs and I look like I'm 6 months along and even my husband is shocked by my belly.

However, I can't distinguish if this is my regular belly pouch or a pregnant belly even with the weight loss so I asked hubby for his opinion. He tried so desperately to but the poor man was cornered. He started with, "well it could be a little fat pouch but I'm leaning towards a pregnant belly because it does look rounder and with more definition"

I DID want an honest response so I graciously accepted what he said and moved on although internally I was all "WHAT?! watchu calling a fat pouch! THEM FIGHTING WORDS BUDDY!" But alas if you want honest answers you gotta brace yourself and suck it up.
LOL! My DH is like, "you sure there is a baby in there?" and I'm like, "um yeah!" He made me pee on a stick a few weeks ago to make sure I was "still pregnant". I haven't had a single drop of spotting, nada! With DS1 I only spotted after sex once in a while, and with DS2 I had a full period for the first 6 months. I had to tell him that, unless I become un-pregnant, I am still pregnant. Now that we can listen to the heartbeat on the doppler he's like, "okay, so I guess there is a baby in there" - I just hope I pop soon, it is kinda making me nervous. I'm only a few days away from 2nd trimester, for pete's sake!
