I'm 9 weeks and 3 days. and i had to go out and buy new pants. but what i did for a while was take a hair tie and loop it through the button hole on my jeans and then loop it around the button. that saved me for about a week!

Around 11 weeks my jeans were super uncomfortable because of how hard my lower tummy was, so I got maternity pants around 13 weeks because it was just too painful.

It's probably just bloating or water weight. It should go down in a couple of weeks. I had some at first and my tummy has gone down since then. I usually start showing around 16 weeks or so (at least I did with my first).

Yeah, youre in the "I feel fat" stage, where your uterus is pushing your guts up out of your pelvis so your middle starts to thicken.... It sucks! lol but soon enough you will start to get a nice round little bump!

It's bloat. With my first one, my pants got tight right away. I was really bloated. Then about 13 weeks or so, my bloating went away and I didn't pop until I was about 21 weeks. Everyone is different, but that's how I was. The second one I was in maternity pants by 10 weeks and stayed that way! LOL

it is bloating and such. maybe weight gain, but yes i have 1 pair that fits still and i can use the bella band for help i love it! i had alot of different size jeans so i was lucky, but at 23 wks i can still wear my size 7 that were way too big before, i was so small when i got preg. i was a 4 that the littlest weight gain and i was nolonger in a 4 so i used older jeans in a larger size,

I bought a pair of pants 1 size up after about 2 months, and wore those until I was about 6 months, and then started wearing maternity...look into belly bands if you need to, it's more affordable than going out and buying maternity pants that might not fit you right until you're bigger.

Mine started getting tight at like 10 weeks or so I just used a rubber band or hair tie. It's mostly bloating or water weight tho. I am 31 weeks and like 2 weeks ago I had to to stop wearing my pre preg jeans cuz you could tell they weren't zipped.. lol

It seemed that as soon as I found out I blew up 15 lbs! It was insane. Although I hadn't told anyone yet, my hubby bought me some maternity pants. Now as I enter wk 13 I find that almost all of the 15 lbs are gone and I can fit into my other pants again...the only difference is that my belly is showing a bit more than usual. I am starting to look pregnant.

Okay, well at least now I know that I'm not completely abnormal! :)

I might have to invest in some rubber bands and see if they can get me thru until this bloated feeling goes away (if it does). :oops:
