  • I don't start to show right way but immediately all of my clothes start to feel tight even if I haven't gained any weight. I'm only 5 weeks and already there are some pants and shirts that fit but just feel too tight to wear. So I think what you're talking about is completely normal. GL!

  • I am 10 weeks now with my second and I had to break out the cheater jeans as my husband calls them a few weeks ago b/c mine got tight and I couldn't sit down without them being tight on my stomach, I've actually lost a few pounds but i was just getting back into my jeans from having my ds 8 months ago, so I was out of them quicker than the first time.

  • I'm only about five weeks pregnant with my second and I already feel my pants getting tighter. It was one of my first clues that I might be pregnant!

  • I am 16 weeks with my 3rd pregnancy. My 2nd pregnant ended in mc. But with this pregnant and my 2nd pregnancy I started to show very fast! I was wearing maternity pants when I was 8 weeks along. I guess its common for a women to "explode" after the first pregnancy. Your uterus has already streched to the max... so I can see why this happens!
