Don't really know if it's bloat or just part of having 5 kids already but I can swear my clothes are fitting tighter already.. I am really not ready for this and definitely not ready for any of my kids or family to know.....

Anybody else with expansion issues.. ? :smileytongue:

I read in my book that expansion happens earlier in second pregnancies and beyond.

Do you still have maternity clothes from last time?

This is my first, so I am wondering when I'll need to start shopping for clothes.

Preg with #4 here, and I'm 8.5wks.  My regular jeans were snug by week 5.  I can wear my post-preg jeans from last year, but honestly, right now I'm very happily wearing my new stretchy maternity jeans!

I have days that seem more like bloating.  I've been avoiding carbs and sticking with protein and veggies as much as possible.
