I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second child and I am so bloated that it looks like I am showing. I know that everything happens faster with the second child and I was also bloated with my first, but I am already wearing my maternity pants because I just can't suck it in anymore. My biggest issue is that I still don't want to tell people for another 4 weeks, and that includes my office mates. The next few weeks should be interesting.

I felt like as soon as I saw the pregnancy test read positive the stomach just fell out of my pants that instant. I feel absolutely ginormous. I showed at 4 mos wit my first so its a wonder i feel like a beached whale with this one. Im seriously considering twins at this point.

Me and my Husband are trying to have our first child, we've been trying since the 15th of August. I feel so Bloated for about 2 weeks now, I've taking a pregnancy test this morning when I woke up, yesterday, and last Saturday, all were negative ... Should I just wait to take another test at the end of September to be sure??

I guess if we're calling it "bloated" I'm in the same boat. I will be 13 weeks with my 2nd tomorrow, but have felt ready to unbutton my pants for about 3 weeks! With my first I couldnt even find maternity pants that wouldnt fall down till I was 6 months....I tried them on two weeks ago and they fit! I am not wearing them yet because I dont HAVE to, and I know I will be sick of them by the end of August, and most likely sooner, but I can't believe how "thick" I feel around the middle in spite of my ob having shown me last week the top of my uterus barely above my pubic bone! Yikes!

I am 12 weeks and just beginning to show, have been bloated since the start but also lost weight because of sickness. I am going to go and buy maternity jeans this week because my other jeans whilst they fit just are not comfortable anymore.

I hear that Chrissy! Last time I refussed to buy maternity pants, I just do not like the looks of them at all. LOL. I have had to go and buy some new jeans though, American Eagle $25, but they were the same price as the ones at Motherhood Maternity, some of those were even more. I just picked up some ultralow rise, and all is good now. Last time around I did not show until 6 months and then it was questionable on what I was wearing.... crossing my fingers

put on my maternity pants at 7 weeks. the only problem is they start to sag when I walk. This is my 2nd & I'm so bloated and gassy. Glad I'm not the only one in maternity clothes. :)

Well, this is our first and I am only 6 weeks. I had to go shopping for maternity pants last week. I couldn't fit into any of my jeans or stretchy yoga pants. I feel awkward wearing them because I am not far enough along to warrant using them but they feel so much more comfortable. I tried on my jeans yesterday and managed to get them zipped but couldn't get them to button... I don't think I am "showing" but just a little bloated. My husband however thinks that I am "showing" and that everyone already knows because I just look pregnant. Hope it's not true because I really don't feel like telling everyone in the world like he wants to...

I'm a little bloated but no more so than before I'm due my period so it's not so bad, although some jeans are a lil tighter so I just undo the top button and use a belt to hold them up now lol :) I'm not far gone but have already told everyone as we're just too excited to keep it to ourselves

It feels like I popped out when the test read "pregnant". LOL It's so true that with each pregnancy you tend to show faster. The top of my tummy seemed to pop out almost immediately. I started wearing my maternity pants for comfort since my pants were not fitting well in the waist. Just dreading being enormous during the hottest time of year. My son was born in early April and I remember being warm all the time at the end of my pregnancy. This summer should be interesting with a built in heater. :)
