1st Trimester

Showing?

So, I'm ONLY 7 weeks and my bump is pretty round. At first, I figured it was probably bloat, but it's so concentrated in the front of my belly-- and firm!

I'm assuming it's because DD is 4 months old, and my uterus probably didn't have time to snap completely back into shape... I had to break out the maternity pants this morning! Lol

Anyone else slightly showing?

    I'm definitely not and I would be much further along if I was. I probably will start showing before 2nd tri though since this is my 2nd. I look forward to it! Right now I think I'm just retaining water.

    I am about to hit 11 weeks, and I feel like it is getting hard to keep it a secret. I had some fat on my stomach before I got pregnant, so now that being pushed out at all is making me look huge.

    I am just dressing baggy.

    This would be me!  At the end of January, I had a stillbirth at 36 weeks (so almost full term).  We decided to start trying again as soon as we got the go.  Now at almost 10 weeks, I have a firm bump.  I think it is due to the quick turn around and my fibroids.  Don't worry, I had to bust out the maternity pants too.

    I'm truly sorry for you loss.

    Congrats on the pregnancy! And it's good to know I'm not alone!

    I'm only a few weeks along and am not showing...except for when I eat! When I eat a meal, I bloat out so much it looks like I'm a few months along!

     Thank heaven for flowy sun dresses!

     I am with you ... Right now I just have a food/bloat baby. My mother rubbed my tummy the other day and was talking to the baby and I just looked at her and said "You know you're just rubbing my belly fat that's always been there right?" Then I slapped her hand away hahaha.

    I've always had some stomach fat lol. I don't think I'm showing at all, but the other day I wore a tank top around the house -- and my SO and his mom kept looking at me saying I'm showing already! Maybe I just don't see it?? o.O

    I had some belly fat before I got pregnant, and bloat has just made that worse. :P However, I have recently lost some of the bloat, and have noticed a firm bump forming (still very low). I love it. :)

    I am a little over 12 weeks and although I don't think I am actually showing because its not the hard baby belly, more like a little potbelly that gets bigger as the day goes on. I was 5'4 111 when i got pregnant and I have already gained 6 pounds and look very bloated. As a result more than a few people have told me they can see that I am showing. I tell them no I am just getting fat and bloated lol. Ill be happy to start seeing the real baby belly:)

     Funny, my mom does the same thing.  I keep telling her its bloat and my fat, but not "its hard" she says.  She even has our famiy friend saying the same thing.  I think they are just excited about seeing my bump since this is the first.

     Since my stomach sticks out a bit, i just wear dresses all the time.  this way my pants are not pushing on my stomach.
