Feeling pregnant

According to my best guess at my LMP I'm 9w1d today. I've been nauseous since the week before the new years and all of a sudden a couple of days ago the nausea just stopped. I read up on it online and it seems that it's normal. With all my other (4) pregnancies I've had morning sickness up until about 12-13 weeks.

But what has me really wondering is I look and feel pregnant. I feel pressure in my lower abdomen as if the uterus is pushing up on something. I know this being my 5th baby I'm going to look pregnant much sooner. But I don't ever recall feeling anything at 9 weeks pregnant. At most my dates can be off by a week.

Does anyone else feel like the uterus is pushing up on other organs already? Maybe I just have a very vivid imagination. :)

I'm 10 weeks and 5 days, and I'm definitely feeling much more preggo than my other two pregnancies.  I feel a lot more pressure, and I'm showing a good 4 weeks earlier than last time.  I look as big as I did at 14 weeks with my last one.  I'm even finding myself starting to waddle!!!

I'm almost 11 weeks with my second and it seems like I'm starting to show just a bit (mostly I just can't suck in my little gut as much anymore, lol)! The only time I really feel any type of pressure though is if i try laying on my back or if I'm sitting leaning back a bit, then I feel like my uterus is pushing on my spine and I can only stay that way for a few minutes.

Yes, I'm feeling the same way too. I've already had to break out my maternity pants as I just couldn't handle the pressure on my tummy from my 'regular' pants. This is my third pregnancy and I can't believe how much more pregnant I feel already at this point. Could be a long nine months! ;)

I just saw my Ob yesterday, and he said that I'll feel a lot more preggo the whole time, a lot more pressure and soreness. You can leak milk the whole pregnancy also. He actually told me that by the third trimester I'll feel like I need to keep my knees tight together so the ham will stay in the oven...lol. I love my ob!
