    Default 'Showing' really early in pregnancy...

    I'm just 5 weeks pregnant! I usually pop out and bloat with my pregnancies quite early compared to the average person and I'm quite a thin person, so that can make it more obvious. But this is ridiculous! Baby #3. I've gone from flat (just finished a 30 day core fitness challenge before I got pregnant and had a flat tummy) to this!! Like flipping serious... not doing any sort of 'pushing out' what-so-ever (excuse the photo-bombing dog).

    It's not easy at all to keep a secret. I'm on a gluten, dairy, refined sugar, caffiene and yeast free diet - so not eating any 'bad foods'.

    Did you bloat/pop early with #3 or subsequent babies?

    This is around 8 weeks with #2 (I think).

    And by 13.5 weeks with #2.

    Getting a little concerned that there is more than ONE! Eeeep! Ob appointment on the 22nd and he usually does a little scan - so guess there is not too long to wait to find out!

    Congratulations on your BFP!

    I think even if there were twins, it wouldnt explain the popping out. Maybe you just have a lot of gas/water retention?
    If you generally show early with your other pregnancies then it makes sense that you would show even more with each pregnancy.

    Cute bump @WarriorMama!!

    I have had weight loss surgery and have a lot of excess skin around my mid section, it's always been stretchy and I've been able to tuck it into pants/skirts etc. I've bloated big time since finding out I am pregnant, all my loose skin isn't as stretchy and easy to manipulate as it was 4 weeks ago and I can't suck it on or tuck it as much either lol

    Can't believe how bloaty it is - considering baby is like the size of an apple seed!! It's almost comical!!

    And we thought we'd keep it a secret until my MIL's wedding (remarrying - her dear hubby died 9 yrs ago). That's in 3 1/2 weeks.... I think not!

    Hate to think how HUGE I'm going to be at the end - my boys I carried both right out the front, like a watermelon!

    I'm just on 5 weeks with number three, and it's a similar story. I'm pretty tall and slender, normally a size 8, and look like I'm at least 10 weeks. I did start putting on a bit of weight the last two months with my PCOS ramping up, but the last two weeks you'd think I'd been eating chips and pizza every day!

    Also, for maximum disguising, get an empire waisted dress for the wedding. I'm already working out how many work days I have to cover and my fashion options I have before I want to let the cat out of the bag. Thank goodness I'm on leave over Christmas, otherwise it would be pretty awkward at the rate I'm growing!
