At this point, it’s probably just bloating– what is your water intake like? 

If you increase that to 6-8 glasses per day (that’s only 3-4 regular sized water bottles) you can flush out some of the sodium and things in your body that naturally cause bloating. 

But of course– that’s only a short term fix, eventually it will be showing, and you’ll need new pants ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Oh, and Congratuations!

@Rose120:  I’m about six weeks pregnant and feeling the same way!  It has me a little worried.

It’s just bloating. Try investing in a be band/bella band. It will make your jeans so much more comfortable. I’m at 6 weeks (6 wks 4 days) and when I’m really bloated or if I’m attempting to wear jeans I’ll through on my Bella band. It makes a huge difference and you don’t have to button your pants.

My pants stopped fitting around 6 or 7 weeks and haven’t fit since. I bought a few non-maternity pants/shorts 1-2 sizes up, which got me through until I moved into maternity clothes. I figure I can wear the larger non-maternity clothes for awhile post-pregnancy. I also tried a Bella band but I didn’t really like it.

@Rose120:  felt the same as you do now, and I was convinced I was showing. It turned out to be bloating, and I started to really show at about 14 weeks and on. I think that since only we know our bodies so well when we get pregnant and gain some weight we automatically notice the rapid changes in our body, however, these changes are usually only noticed by other later on. ๐Ÿ™‚
