  • I am 9 1/2 weeks and I can't comfortable button my pants anymore. I have had to get bigger shirts. With my first I didn't even know I was pregnant till 10 weeks

  • at about 8 weeks with number 2 i was "showing" pretty sure it was all bloat, but my doctor also said baby was big, and i pretty much stayed about the same size from then until about 4 months, i started to get bigger and now im almost exactly 5 months and some ppl say i look 7m..eeek! lol

  • You get bigger more quickly with each pregnancy, in my experience. Don't worry much about it.

  • well every pregnancy is totally different...but for me I looked huge then too because I was super bloated and constipated so It was bowel distention that was making my tummy pooch out so much. ( thanks for sharing I know lol). But I hear with each pregnancy your muscles are more relaxed and used to stretching so you get bigger quicker but who knows. Good luck though and don't worry! You are beautiful all pregnant women are beautiful you are creating life.
