Re: Who else has a gut now?

  • Oh yeah - this is definitely not my favorite pregnancy phase - too early for a cute bump, but definitely late enough that you don't look like your normal self.  And I don't know about you, but I can't suck it in!

    I'm with you on this. I don't look pregnant, but I do feel like a whale. None of my clothes fit so I have moved on to wearing loose dresses every day before buying maternity clothes.

  • So much worse since I started on iron supplements. Considering asking my doctor if I can drop them. I needed new jeans and bought a size up, which helped but I don't want to spend money on clothes that I know won't fit well for more than a month or two.
  • I'm in this club! Grossness. It's so unattractive!! I have no plans of swimming this summer. My legs even look bloated! So glad I won't be all nasty and bloated having a winter baby. I had an August baby last time.....geesh. Never again!!

  • Now?  I had a gut at 4.5 weeks!  WTH!  I dug out a pair of my maternity capris that were a bit small when I was further along and they fit great right now.  So I live in those and yoga pants!  I didn't think I looked pregnant until my friend's grandma came up to me and patted my belly and said congrats.  Ummmm.....it totally threw me off, but she did it very sweetly.

    Buying a size up actually worked really well for me during my last pregnancy. I could then wear those jeans PP and to this day those jeans still fit me.

    Yes I realised this weekend that the bloat has taken over and while it's worse at night - it's there during the day as well.

    Not pulling out matrnity wear yet - but I have to very carefully pick my clothes.

  • The bloat is strong here ..... it's freakin' ridiculous.  I busted out the "big" pants today.  I've been mostly wearing dresses, though.

     I couldn't have said this better myself. I tried the ol' rubberband trick yesterday but everytime I went to the restroom my zipper was already down lol

     So yeah. that didn't work out too well.

  • Ugh! One of my co workers I just told said she was wondering if I was pregnant since she knew I was loosing weight but looked like I had put some on. Man did that hurt my ego. Luckily my jeans are still fitting ok. Now I'm worries that I won't have anything to wear on my trip to Norway. I was planning on taking my jeans an capris. Guess ill be packing at the last minute.

    This exactly! My face looks like I've developed a serious allergic reaction to something and my throat is about to close up!! My jeans sort of still fit, but some days the rubber band thing is extremely necessary. Drinking lots and lots of water to see if the bloating goes down a bit. Redonculous is right!

    Same here! Third pregnancy really brought it out this time... :/ I look like I did at 16 weeks with my last pregnancy.

  • I don't have one yet, but I'm definitely starting to notice some major stomach bloating that does not look cute - flowy tops are my bff.

    This is me almost exactly... was in the early stages of losing some weight when we got our BFP (had lost about 5lbs) but I carry my weight mostly in my stomach area. I am definitely feeling more bloated than usual though and loving the flowy tops! Wore a pair of dress pants today that I think are out of the running from now on... my stomach did not feel good after a day of being constricted!
