Showing...at 5 weeks???


Let me start by saying this is my second pregnancy.

I will be five weeks tomorrow. I had two people at work staring at my belly today and ask me if I was pregnant. I seriously look like I'm at least 8-10 weeks along. I haven't changed my eating habits. I was wearing a size 4 pants and weighed 129 lbs. I can't button my pants now and have to use a belly band. I'm hoping it's bloat but I don't feel bloated or have that "feeling". With my son I didn't show until probably 5 months or so. (even then I was still pretty small)

In addition, I had a blood draw last week at 4 weeks. My levels were in the 500's on Wednesday and then on Friday's draw she didn't tell me the number but said that my levels MORE than doubled.

Has anyone else experienced this with your second child or is there a possiblity of twins? The nurse didn't mention that numbers seemed THAT high.

Any suggestions? I'm starting to feel like a fatty.

Me either and all the research I've done online just keeps saying it's bloat. It seems so odd to be bloat b/c I don't feel bloated. I don't feel uncomfortable or like I need to pass gas or anything like that. It's driving me crazy though b/c I don't want my weight to get out of control and it appears like it will.

I was showing at 5 weeks, but I was carrying twins. I lost one however at 4.5/5 weeks. And my bump has yet to go down. This is my fifth pregnancy (with four losses and one preterm birth..well I guess sixth pregnancy if you count each twin as one pregnancy) and I think that's why I showed so early. There is a beautiful bump in the "your bumps" sticky that is six weeks and big! It doesn't look like bloat at all to me, and is her second baby.

I think if your not feeling bloated and your bump is harder....it's a bump! It's really not impossible to show at 5 weeks when it's a second pregnancy.

I'm due in August with #4 and I can't fit into my pants anymore. I just worked so hard to FINALLY get into a smaller size over the summer and today I could barely button them for my Midwife appointment. (I've been wearing sweats all week!)

I think it's just bloat, but it happened this way with my last 2 as well!

I don't feel bloated either mama! But, our bodies are going to do what they want when we are growing life!

Thank you all for your responses! I've thought possibly twins but I haven't felt any symptoms either and I figured that you felt them sooner and more intensely since there are two babies. I will def. keep you all posted!

I just asked my dh to feel my tummy tonight - as I already feel like I'm getting a bump as well. Im not a small girl though - size 16 US but below my belly button is already starting to feel harder (vs flabby). Its feeling like it did when I was pregnant with Megan. I was feeling bloated & fat at the end of last week but not feeling bloated anymore. I'm hoping its a fluke - as I dont want to tell everyone yet.

I dont know when I O'd but I can't be far off - cause my cycles are very regular and last AF was only Nov 4th.
