  • My pants were tight a lot sooner with number 2 also. I don't know if it was quite that early- but it was really early. I still didn't look pregnant for quite a while- and I had actually lost weight- but I could not wear my pants really early!

  • At 6 weeks when I was pregnant with my second, I had to go out and get maternity pants lol. I think its mainly bloating , but yep this happened to me too! By the end of the day all i wanted to do was get on some nice comfy pj pants because I was so bloated! lol

  • I'm 26 wks tomorrow w/ my second and I remember before I found out that I was pregnant w/ this one, I notice my stomach a little bit bigger and I found out right around 5 wks. Definitely started showing alot sooner w/ this one.

  • Haha I was actually wondering if there were more then one in there since my symptoms were so extreme so soon this time. Then with the pants getting tight I was really starting to worry lol. I guess time will tell. But atleast I am not imagining things with my pants lol
