Showing at 8 weeks??!

8 weeks with DC3. DC2, aged 13, was huge and separated my stomach muscles permanently - I can feel the gap between them.

I've always carried weight on my stomach since, and can't get it flat no matter what I do, but I seem to be showing an awful lot at just two months!

Anyone else had this?

Congratulations! I'm on my first, 11 weeks and haven't been able to get into my jeans for the last two weeks. I am having to wear my 'eating pants' all the time now! I guess everyone is different. Luckily, loose fitting dresses are very in this season, so it's an excuse for us both to go shopping! ;-)

I was congratulated by a work colleague on my pregnancy when I was 8 weeks with DC2. I was already in maternity clothes by then too, as nothing else fitted!

My jeans started feeling tight at 7 weeks, think it was more bloating than anything else though as baby is tiny at that point! After having DS my shape has changed, fat that I used to carry evenly is now right at the front so I look a little bit pregnant even though I'm not, so I'm sure if I get pregnant again I'll be showing very early!

I am soooo bloated from the progesterone pessaries I'm taking post IVF my enormobloat makes me look like I'm showing already - even though it's bloat not bump  

Lady in my yoga class asked when I was due and gently asked if I could be further along than 8 weeks - clearly because I had such a swollen belly!! I had to say no I know exactly when the embryo went back, my dates are bang on confused

I'm very small framed so my boobs and belly look really bloody obvious.

If we make it past 12 weeks and I get to come off the Cyclogest, I wonder if my bloat will go down and I'll appear to have actually lost my bump as the pregnancy progresses, until I start to show with actual baby??!! It's my first pregnancy.
