    Oh My Yes! The loosing has definitely started early, saw my FS this morning for our sign off appt and she said the liagments are all stretched out after the first pregnancy so everything isnt held in as well as it was the first time,and because the body has done this before all the hormones are in full swing early on compared to last time. Its all very normal to be uncomfortable (hip, pelvis,back) from 6-7 weeks second time around when first timers usually dont get this discomfort till at least 12 weeks plus.

    I havent slept comfortably since 5-6 weeks! Only 30ish weeks of discomfort to go hahaha!

    That makes a lot of sense @Wishnhope, glad I haven't just been going crazy! The ultrasound tech said she was surprised there weren't two on board given my HCG levels when I had my dating scan, so it's no wonder I started suffering the pains around that time.

    Haha only 30ish weeks to go @Wishnhope
    Glad to know I'm not the only one feeling like an old lady. Yes I miss good sleep. It's upsetting because I know it's only going to get worse when baby is here. I should be taking advantage while I can (and when DD has her good nights!!!)
    Lots of vivid dreams too apart from the discomfort!! Feel very FULL of hormones!!

    It's a really crap thing about pregnancy - the time in your life you probably need the most amount of sleep everything conspires against you so you end up exhausted already by the time bub makes an appearance! I remember feeling so great a couple of days after DD was born, despite having a wound to deal with I could actually sleep comfortably again so the sleep I did get was decent.

    Can any ladies help me out with any tips for this bloating... all my clothes are tight since I'm a size 8, especially my work clothes.. I don't want to buy a lot just yet so I am thinking just a few loose dresses? When buying maternity clothes do you need to buy different sizes throughout or is it like one size that will grow with you?

    This is what I am talking about lol

    @nattie84 you buy your normal size in maternity clothes. Most of them have elastic so they grow with you.
    Use a hair elastic for your jeans! One end around the button then through the hole and back onto the button. Then just wear a top that covers it. I still do it with my work pants and I'm almost 19 weeks.

    @nattie84 I had to buy some maternity stuff quite early as my jeans wouldn't do up. Kmart have some cheap things and h&m also had some reasonable jeans ($35). I didn't want to spend a lot so early on but they are good to make do with until I'm actually showing and don't just look fat!!! man I'm looking so fat right now!!!

    A belly band is another cheap early investment, my work pants dont have buttons I can do the elastic trick with so they just kinda sit open so the belly band helps hide that and hold it all up!

    The bloat is crazy! But you're looking great nattie84!

    8 weeks 4 days and Ive gained 2 kgs already I can pretty much blame the utter crap Ive been eating on a 24/7 basis to try and not feel sick so here's hoping now I have some MS tablets the constant eating and weigh gain slow down!

    Oh if you have a jeanswest outlet nearby, they have great specials on maternity jeans and shorts. I just bought a pair of each for $50 (total) and they're so so comfy!
