Wow! I am jealous of eveyrone who is showing later!
I am currently 7 week and feel like I am showing… or it could just be bloat that won’t go away. I’ve been trying to lose 5lbs. that I gained over the last year (pre finding out I was PG) and nothing I have done has made it come off, so I started off with a pouch of a belly (along with weight on my hips). So, I could barely get my regular pants on to begin with and now need to size up to even wear jeans, ha. Even my biggfer size dress pants for work are getting to be tight, ugh!
I’ve already done the rubber band trick on a few of my jeans, but knwo I should just go buy new since I can’t keep trying to squeeze into jeans that were already too tight. Ah, getting older.

It’s really amazing how different everyone is. I’m 9 1/2 weeks today with my first and my pants won’t button, but I haven’t gained a single pound. I was slightly chubby to start with, and everything I read says it’s “just bloat”, but it’s there all day, and I don’t see it going away any time soon… so bloat or baby, who cares? I have a bump. I’ll be buying some maternity pants in the next week or so, because even my belly band is starting to get uncomfortable. I’ve been living in sweatpants (thankfully I work from home).

I’m 21 weeks currently with my first. I started wearing maternity pants at about 18 weeks. I’d say my belly popped out about then. It depends on my clothes…sometimes I don’t look pregnant at all and sometimes I look super pregnant! I just had my first random stranger encounter yesterday when a lady asked me how far along I am. I was wearing a non-maternity maxi skirt and a non maternity blouse so I was super surprised she could tell.

I just took this photo. Left is 4+2 (I took a photo because I was slightly bloated), and right is today (9+4). Same weight. I definitely look different!

By 9 weeks I could see something already. I have a VERY short torso though and am used to a flat stomach, so any change is noticeable.
