5 weeks pregnant and my belly is getting bigger


This is my 3rd pregnancy and i just found out I was pregnant last week (i was on clomid first cycle). The regular pregnancy test detected it at 12 dpo, my ob still wants to see me in 2 weeks for the ultrasound. Well, 5 days ago, I noticed my tummy was growing a bump, yesterday, people actually noticed I was pregnant and were smiling at my belly. I look 3-4 months pregnant. I had to go out and buy maternity shorts yesterday because my regular bottoms don't fit. Both my kids were c-section babies, and my tummy never really got flat after the second one. Sometimes I wonder if there is more than 1 baby inside. My only symptoms are sore breasts and feeling very sleepy. I could sleep all morning and afternoon if I could. I am not hungry at all...which is so different from the 2 previous pregnancies where I ate up a storm. Any one have any experience with their bellies growing so fast and anone else not feeling hungry like me?!?

ummm im still ttc and my belly has already started growing

sorry hun, I shouldnt be joking... I think after multiple pregnancies your uterus really just knows what to do and you can show very quickly.

I feel so bloated already. I can do my jeans up but it's not comfy at all when I sit down....

Hey hun!

I showed my BFP on 12DPO and my stomach today is looking a little bigger than I expected, and like I have eaten a horse! I too am not at all hungry which I have been worried about because everyone else I know is constantly starving! I have been on a health regime for the last few months and had achieved the perfect tummy! Now - it's really difficult to hold in! Do you find it difficult to hold in?

I joked with my DH it might be twins especially as when I OV'd I felt each side OV!! So, maybe we're in for twins hun!!??

I went out and bought maternity jeans at 5 weeks too!

It's my second pregnancy and I'm already huge. I was a size eight before (using a belt on my jeans!), and by 5 weeks, my size ten jeans were getting uncomfortable on the waist.

I had grown out of all my tops by 9 weeks I think, and I'm now totally in maternity clothes!

Thanks God I am not alone. :-) Yesterday while buying maternity pants (which by the way I fit into the second to the last size..ohoh) 2 different salesladies guessed I was 5 month on the way! When I told them I was just 5 weeks, they couldn't believe it.

Luuluu, I wanted to make an appointment earlier with my ob so she could do an ultrasound already. She said...wait another week, it's still too early. I said, but why is my tummy so huge?!? She said it could be hormones and bloat too.

Twinklestar: On 12 dpo, the line was faint but it was defintely there. It was a lighter shade of pink.

I finally took a photo today. I am only 5 weeks 1 day. My belly has grown so much in the last 5 days. Again this is my 3rd pregnancy, but I remember showing around 2 months with my second...but not this big.
