    Default showing already!!!

    I'm quite shocked how big my tummy is already, I'm only 5 weeks & have had to pull the belly belt already, lol! I'm now shopping on eBay for maternity clothes, I'm assuming this is normal after having a full term bubba (4 years ago)?

    I certainly expanded much earlier with #2, although I don't think I noticed anything quite that early. I did read up early on that although bubba is still teeny tiny, your uterus does start growing which is probably what is causing the bump at this stage.

    lol, it's kinda getting hard to disguise, I had a guest at a party ( I do party plan) ask me last night if I was expecting, I was like "um, so its noticeable then?" & a few others (in unison) say "oh yes"

    It could also be bloating from bowels - with the pregnancy hormones causing havoc with digestion, u tend to have more gas in early pregnancy causing bloats which gives u an early bump!

    It's probably just bloat at that stage as your baby is teeny tiny and your uterus is still hidden within your pelvis. With DD I got a bit bloated in the first trimester, but didn't actually have a bump until about 22+ weeks (she is #2, it was the same for DS).

    I had to laugh at my mum when I told her I was expecting again, I think she was more shocked about the size of my tummy, not me being pregnant, lol!
