My belly??

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and my belly already feels and looks like it has gotten a little bigger. My pants are starting to get tighter it's to the point this week that when I sit down I cramp until I unzip my jeans a little and then I feel better especially when i lay down. So could I already be getting a little big should my pants start feeling tight already. I'm wanting to eat a lot too but when I eat I can't eat no where near the amount I normally do I normally could eat two burgers now I can barely finish one. I could eat two small pork chops a long with my whole plate now I can barely finish my plate then 3 hours later I'm starving so could all of this be happening to so soon, me showing a little, my pants tighter, me eating like I'm starving, but barely eat?

  • Have you been keeping track of your weight? Are you positive you're only 5 weeks? First or subsequent pregnancy?

  • I started showing right away with my first pregnancy.
    It was instant water retention and I swelled up super fast.

    As far as eating a lot goes, your body is working extremely hard creating that little life. You are going to be eating more and more as your body burns through those calories for energy.
    By the time you hit the second trimester things will even out a bit. The first trimester is when so many different things are happening and changes are going on so your body is working over time. :)
