Okay, according to the first day of my last period, I am 5 weeks along. My last period was irregular, but my test were negative up until 2 days after my first missed period.

I look pregnant. Everyone can tell. My stomach is sticking out and hard. Even my mom said to me today "omg are u sure your only 5 weeks?" but even if I were 9 weeks, would I be this big? I have gained about 3-4 lbs this month, only in my stomach. My pants dont fit me anymore.

The strange thing is, my breasts are bigger, but not sore, and I have had very very very little morning sickness. I go to the doctor for the first time at the beginning of september. Someone told me that since this is my 2nd pregnancy, that I may show sooner... But how normal is this?? Should I be worried??

Im 18 weeks, almost 19 weeks and I dont look big at all. I have a tiny belly, really tiny. Some people didnt know I was pregnant until someone had said something. I tell my bf that maybe its just cuz we are gonna have a tiny baby. Im not really a big girl either, I am 5'8 and weighed 135lbs before I got pregnant and now im fat! I weigh 150! And I dont really look pregnant. I have a belly, but not really that big. Yesterday I went swimming in my bfs sisters pool and you know how pressure from water kinda makes ur tummy feel like ur suckin it in, well I felt my belly and its little! Makes me worried..Ne one else like that?

Some girls actually don't start showing until 6 months!

And if your showing when your early, I dont think its nothing to be worried about, i'm 3 months and have a little pooch, which is pretty normal.

With my 1st one I didn't show until I was about 7 months along and that is no joke. I wasn't over weight or anything. She was a big baby too. With my 2nd I was wearing maternity clothes by the time I was 3 months. My stomach had already started to really harden. He was a big baby too. When I was 6 months people thought I was due anyday. And I was all belly and butt. Lol

The second one always pokes out faster than the 1st one. And it is possible that your a little farther along than you think. Especially with that boob thing.. I grew a cup size in about 2 weeks.. And if your not having morning sickness.. That just means your one of the lucky ones..

Thanks guys!

I had a little morning sickness today, I actually threw up lol. Another thing that worries me is my weight. 3 days ago I weighed myself at 154 lbs and now I weigh 158 lbs today. I have been eating more through-out the day in smaller meals, but not enough to gain 4 lbs in 3 days.. I know I have alot of water weight and bloating, but I feel my stomach is just getting bigger!

I am going to give a local doctor a call and see if they can work with me. My insurance doesnt kick in until the beginning of september but I feel like I really need the advice and guidance of a doctor right now... Yeesh!

ok ladies..I have you all beat ..You think gaining only 35 lbs is large?..Huh?.....I went from 115lbs to 180 lbs. How do you like them apples?..It could be alot worse. And that weight gain wasn't from mcdonalds or wendy's either.

My baby was almost 10 lbs. I lost 25 by the time I left the hospital 3 days later..And I am currently 125. I think i'll stay around this weight..Cause I looked like a ethiopian before. I am 5'4. I feel really good, and I have curves in all the right spots!!


When it comes to pregnancy..Don't worry about the weight your putting on. It's all for your baby, and do whatever it takes to make sure its healthy. I worried and whined the whole 9 months and didn't enjoy it, becuase of it. Looking back I kick myself because I have this beautiful child, and didn't enjoy him in my belly at all. I feel really guilty...But..Like I said, hes beautiful and super healthy so if I gained 100 lbs, it wouldn't have mattered in the end.


Good luck mama's!!

i am 5 months pregnant and I wake up some mornings and dont have a bump and some mornings I look 7 months pregnant it all depends where the placenta is and what postion the baby is lying but if your only 5 weeks pregnant whick means that you are 3 weeks after conception id say it is water retention and fluid. Your baby is no bigger than your thumb at this point.

I am 5 weeks and 6 days pregnant. It looks like i am pregnant too. Some people say that you can barely tell, but others (most) say that i am already showing and am kinda big for being 5 weeks. My breasts have not gotten bigger, but my aerolas are darker. I was a 34D at start and i really dont want to grow any more then that! I am petite with a big bust. I like it but i am fine with my size Sad my belly doesnt matter though i want it to get big already!
