9 weeks and my pants are getting tight already???? 3rd child

When did you notice your pants were getting tight? When did you start wearing maternity clothes?

  • With my third, it was around 8w. I could fudge it by using an elastic band through the button hole and around the button to give me a little extra room, but by 10 - 11 w I had to wear maternity pants or stretchy pants like yoga or sweat pants.

  • okay my "skinny pants" got tight before I got a positive result on a pregnancy test, but I didn't star wearing maternity clothes till about 12 weeks, though I was limited to sweat pants around 8 weeks ;)

  • I was bloated even before I knew so my pants were tight. But hell I can still wear most of my cloths and I'm 34 weeks! It helps most of my cloths were baggy anyway.

  • With my first child it seems like I was showing as soon as I found out I was pregnant (about 6 or 7 weeks lol) but I'm 31 weeks now and I didn't really start "showing" until about 5 months.

  • ugh! we're keeping it a secret unlil 12 weeks because I lost 2 pregnancies before this one. i dunno if my belly will cooperate with that plan.
