6 Weeks Pregnant

Showing already?

Hey ladies!

I am about 6 weeks (due date not yet confirmed by a doctor) and I look like I have a baby bump already. Some people say bloating, but when I've bloated before it never felt hard and I've never looked so round. I've already had to buy maternity clothes because my regular clothes are so tight and uncomfortable. Is this normal? Do people normally start to show this early? My husband and I , and even my MIL think I might be further along. I had a period in March, but it was very irregular for me. I'm so confused and really anxious for my Dr. appointment in 2 weeks!! I just wanted to see what any of you had to say!!

 Thanks for any input! <3

Re: Showing already?

  • I am so glad to have read your post!  I am in the exact same situation, I even had a negative pregnancy test before my period in march, but I feel so much more than bloated...And my first OB appointment isn't until June 6, which will put me at about 11 1/2 weeks!!  Everyone else seems to have appointments around 8, so now I am wondering if I should reschedule a bit sooner? This is my first pregnancy, so I'm not sure what to think!  Sorry, I don't think I am much help for you, but I am happy to see someone in the same boat!!
  • I know the feeling.. I am 6 wks or about to hit my 6wks mark.. I feel like i am carrying a baby bump but my thing is a i am chubby so i already had a bump he he.. i feel more like bloated esp after i eat i feel round..lol.. good luck and congrats..

  • Babyhachey i recommend that you change your appt to much sooner more like next week soon when your 7 weeks. I think its silly they gave you such a late appt did you tell them you are pregnant? They should have told you to come in to confirm pregnancy thru blood and also give you ur first sonogram at 7wks.. congrats.. our babies are due in dec :0)
  • I am right at 6 weeks today and I feel EXACTLY the same way. I go for my first appointment next week (7weeks.) I am deffinitly going to ask my doctor about it then. But I feel as if I have a balloon in my uterus. My sister is 8mths pregnant and she didn't start showing until she was 6mths. So I am scared I might have twins. Hope someone has some answers to this for all of us!!

  • I am at six weeks and have a definite change in my body structure.  I've always had a lean body and no poochy belly at all.  Now I have a little baby pooch that is sticking out and my midsection is just a bit thicker overall.  Even when I gained my freshman 15, I didn't look like this.  Its just, I don't know, different.  I'm looking forward to getting a little bit more of a belly though so I actually look like a pregnant woman and not just thicker.

  • Ive been told and I no that it just bloating that its not showing but i feel like im at least 4 months preggo.The bloating feels more worst than just period bloating cuz my bump feels much harder and rounder and on some days i have no bloating. Im schedule for my first prenatal appt 5/17 and 'im sooo anxious to see what's up. The only ppl thats knows im preggo is my fiance and my closes friends.My co- workers already getting a hint cuz im always going to the bathroom. I cant wait to fully blast the news to my family. we plan to tell before one of my sister go to Afghanistan in July and aroung that time ill be 13 or 14 weeks.I plan to visit my family beforehand and I dont want my BLOATING to give it away and they start asking am I.

  • I am a little bigger girl already, so I don't necessarily feel like I am showing, but I definitely feel like I can't "hold my tummy in" like I used to.  I really think it is the bloating (I usually don't have much during my period), but it is also hard to the touch.  I felt like everyone in church was starring at me today.  We don't plan on waiting too long to tell our families (this is the first grandchild, great grandchild, niece/nephew, etc. on my side), but I hope it can wait until at least after the first DR. appointment on June 11th!

  • I feel the same way!! I am 6 weeks 4 days along and ever since 5 weeks 5 days I haven't been able to comfortably button certain pairs of pants that fit just fine the week before. I had to buy a belly band to go over my pants so that I can wear them without zipping/buttoning up.  I have 1 pair of maternity shorts but they are a bit big when they stretch out.  I seriously love my belly band... it's saving me time before I'm big enough for most maternity clothes!  I was thinking I was just getting fat(er...I'm not exactly skinny) but you're all making me feel so much better!
  • Hey Ladies, 

     

    Ugghhh I totally know the feeling! I'm already in need of bigger pants and definitely a bigger bra!

     Everything has been up in the air, it's kind of nuts. I went to see my Dr. because I was really sick with a crazy cough that wouldn't go away, I didn't want to take any meds because there was a chance I might be pregnant, turns out I was! My Dr. called and said "you're only 1 week pregnant", and everyone told me that was impossible because 1 week pregnant isn't even pregnant, so I went for bloodwork, ultrasound and despite my calendar date coming back as me being 7.5 weeks pregnant (that was 2 weeks ago), my ultrasound (this week) says that I'm only 6 weeks along.

    Now the Dr. is all concerned (I'm not, I knew when everything happened and was pretty sure that 7.5 weeks was way too far along) and now I'm doing like... 3 blood tests and another ultrasound... and the tech last time was a TOTAL horrible horrid mean terrible person. She must really hate her job. She wouldn't tell me a THING, i knew she couldn't tell me much.. but it was pulling teeth to get her to tell me that I was even pregnant! (i mean I wanted to make sure!!!) and this was after she got upset with me for not drinking enough water (which I had!!! 1L!!!) and my husband couldn't come in, I asked to see the baby and I got "well I can show you, but you aren't going to understand it." When I pointed out the placenta and the little pea baby she huffed and snorted at me...

    Sorry for the off topic rant... just really upset right now. The US was supposed to be this awesome experience... and it was horrid and I came out crying. Thank god we're still pregnant, and I know the baby is growing and we're not in trouble.

    uhh... ok, I'm better now. lol.

  • Ailise:

    You probably just got a jerk for a tech and she just hates her life or something. You shouldn't judge the entire country based on one bad experience. Some people are just like that. I know someone who hates the US because of where we've been stationed. It's not America's fault that you were stationed in the middle of nowhere nor does one place or person reflect the entire country. Sorry if I come across as insensitive, I've just heard it so many times before from her and it just really bugs me because the entire country doesn't suck. I'm sorry you had a horrible experience. Jerks are everywhere, not just in the United States.

  • I am in the same boat. I can't believe how fast my bump came, maybe it's because it's my second one, I am not sure, but my husband and I want to wait to tell other family and friends until we hit the 2nd tri and at this rate it's going to be hard to hide it for another 8 weeks. I thought maybe I was further along too, but also don't have my first appointment until the 18th. It will be interesting to see what the ultrasound says for a due date.

    Other than that I've been feeling pretty sick the past few days. I know eating something and drinking water is key to help with that, but I don't feel like doing either. I make myself eat crackers before bed just to help me get through the night. I was SO sick with my first one, I hope things don't get that bad this time. I am already counting down the days until the 2nd tri and hope it ends by then.

    Thinking good thoughts for all of us, hope everyone has a good week.

  • With my first baby I didn't show till 6.5 months, So be glad b/c that usually means you won't gain a ton of weight and will be easier to loose. On the other hand you don't get to enjoy your bump that long before it's gone!!!

  • I'm 6w1d measuring via ultrasound today and I'm SUPER bloated!...and constipated so that's my baby bump right now! It's not easy to suck in like before I was pg and occasionally bloated/constipated.  I'll be welcoming a real baby bump!

  • I think by US...she meant ultra sound:-)  All is good:-)  Easy mistake, for a second I had to think of what "US" stood for in her sentence.
