When did you start "growing"?

I'm only 5 weeks and already starting to feel bloated! Nothing really noticeable from the outside yet though. This is not my first pregnancy and I've heard you "pop" out sooner after having one baby, this just seems really early.

How are/did you do?

  • I'm right where you are with my second, and I'm not really "popping" yet. I haven't started feeling bloated or anything either, but I know of some women in groups I'm in who are noticeably showing at only 8 weeks!

  • well at 5 weeks ur baby is being ur pubic bone. so if u feel really low wear ur pubic hair is or should be there is a bone, babies behind there. You could be feeling swollen because ur retaining water or need water, etc. or thats just the way ur body reacts.
