I’m 9 weeks, and I’m thinking it may be just about time to jump on the bellaband bandwagon. I only have one pair of work pants that I can wear comfortably, but even those are starting to feel a bit uncomfortable by the end of the day. I wore a dress yesterday and totally looked preggers by the time I got to my car at night… damn bloat.

Not so much for me. Like I told AvantlaLettre, I can’t eat as much since my stomach is being pushed around in there. But that means I’m hungry more often, if I eat a big meal I am in pain, I feel so tight. If I eat smaller meals every 2 hours then it’s a lot more comfortable. It’s so much harder to do though!
I never ended up getting one, at about 12-13 weeks I hated the muffin top my pants were giving me, so I just went and bought 2 pairs of maternity jeans, from what I’ve heard, everyone preferred the jeans to the belly band anyhow so I never got it. The only issue I have is that mat. jeans fall down… a lot. I’m constantly readjusting which is a pain. I’m not sure if I’d paid more $$ for higher quality if that would happen, I got two from motherhood maternity. They look cute and fit well, just they fall down as you sit/walk.

I’ve started to notice that too. I feel like I have two bumps. The bottom one is baby and the top one is all the insides (and my pre-baby chub) that have gotten pushed upward. It’s not cute, let me tell you. I feel like it’ll look better when my belly button stops being so deep. (Which the belly button is definitely much more shallow these days.)
Oh, and I went to the doctor today! She said everything is perfect. Except that I gained 6lbs in the past 4 weeks… :/ BUT, she said I’m measuring the right size, my blood pressure looks good and the baby’s heartbeat was strong at 152 bpm.

I think by 9 or 10 weeks I was, before that I was rolling my work pants down below my belly to be comfy.
So excited for your ultrasound! Let us know how it goes!
So jealous! Mine is the 21st! haha. I was hoping they would let me schedule this week since I am 18 weeks, but it was a no go. I was able to squeeze the 21st because I will be 19w 5d.
Yay! glad that your appt went well!
I feel a little bad. A breakfast burrito sounded so good! But by the time I got all the stuff onto the the tortilla, it looked icky. Now I am trying to eat at least part of it so it doesn’t go to waste. = (

I am almost 10 weeks and still fit into my clothes. my stomach definitely has a pooch, but not to the point where i can’t wear my clothes.
my mom said that she didn’t start wearing maternity clothes until she was 20 weeks…maybe i will be similar!

I have heard of people finding out the gender or “getting a good guesstimate” at 13 weeks. I also attend a high risk clinic and they have great ultrasounds. I wouldn’t doubt if they could see a hint of a boy part or a girl part that early!

I was wearing a bella band pretty early. I was so bloated and couldn’t fit into maternity clothes. I began wearing maternity clothes even though strangers didn’t notice that I am pregnant. They are just more comfy. Honestly, I think people are just starting to notice and I’m 21 weeks. lol

Will you be finding out what you’re having? It’s exciting to think that the possibility isn’t too far away!

I’ve been wearing a bella band since week7! The bloat was ridiculous. I don’t like the band that much, so this weekend I’m going to get my first pair of maternity pants.
I also bought my first baby purchase today. DH and I are leaning heavily towards cloth diapering and Zulily had a sale on Bumkins, so I ordered 2 cloth diapers and inserts.
