With my third daughter, I began showing really early. The doctor said that it was because it was a third pregnancy and the muscles were already stretched.
I'm only 5 weeks and 2 days, but the bloating is already uncomfortable. I unbutton my pants for the drive home from work to get some relief! It isn't like I'm showing, but more like the uncomfortable bloating that used to come with af. I'd like to buy a maternity band just for the comfort of it. I'd also like to buy some of the maternity items that I notice are always on the clearance rack at Target. Is it too soon to start stocking up on inexpensive items that I will need later?
