    3rd pg, 5th child, 9th week, not showing...anyone else???

    Just wondering...I do have a very, very little bump when I lay down flat on my back, but that is it...just makes me worry as with both my subsequent I showed early ( of course, the first was triplets and the second was right after triplets and the OB's said that affected the start size of my uterus when pregnant...almost like it *remembered* that it was going to get BIG... )...just wondering how big some of you second, third, or more time arounders are/were at 9 wks...

    Thanks!!

    Hi Carmen. This is my third and I'm now 13 weeks and still in regular (two sizes bigger) but regular clothes. I'm hardly showing at all. With my first pg, I was in maternity clothes at 8 weeks, my 2nd I was in them by 10 weeks. So, yep, I am with you on this one.

    This is my second and I'm still in regular clothes at 10 weeks. I feel like I'm not really showing but just getting FAT. My clothes are starting to get tight and my wardrobe options are becoming limited. I refuse to buy anything new in bigger regular sizes so I'm trying to live with what I have until I feel like I can wear my maternity clothes.

    With my first I must have been 14 or 15 weeks before I started wearing maternity clothes.

    This is my third pg also. I feel like I am getting huge, but in reality I am not really showing. I am going to try and post a picture soon so you can see what I mean. I am definetly too small for maternity but I am wearing 2-3 sizes up from my normal size. In the mornings I am almost flat still, but after I eat and at the end of the day I have a definite pooch happening. I think you are just normal to me. Your uterus probably doesn't know what to do this time around!! I still can't believe you are pg. What did DH say? How did the big "V" go? We are probably going to be getting one here also. I can't believe that after struggling with IF and going through so much that we need to do that. I guess I am still in shock, as are you probably!!

    This is my 1st pg after my triplets and at 9 1/2 w I am out of my denim shorts. I just bought some elastic waist cotton pants last night. No one can tell that I am pg but my DH & I (very different from the trips!!!). The dr was actually surprised at my size but said it is not uncommon for women to show at different times. Goos luck!!

    This is my 1st, but at 9 weeks I had to go and buy several sizes larger in pants than I normally wear. I hate the way they look! I can't find tops to fit me. If I go to the size that fits me, it will be OK for maybe two weeks...but if I go to the next size it just hangs on me, arm holes are way large! Not to mention that I have gone from a 38c/d to a 42dd already. I think my breasts are going to take over my body!

    This is my 3rd pg with my 4th child and I can tell I am showing but not much to anyone else. Unless I am in a swim suit then you can see the belly showing. I am in all my reg clothes and can't get into my tight jeans anymore. So I am growing!
