I can't hide it!

I can't hide it!

I am 7+ weeks and totally showing. I am totally outed at work. I was working yesterday and someone had to clip something to my waist because my hands were tied up. He paused (not out of shyness). So, I said "oh yea, my waist is gone-can you just hold it?" He giggled and said "I didn't want to assume, but yea you look different-I guess you're not going out for drinks."

I live with my MIL and we want to surprise her and DS for Christmas but I totally can't hide it. It's going to be a long 5 weeks! We are "drinking" wine for Thanksgiving to throw her off. I need to get some big shirts! I was wearing a Tshirt today and have a pouch! It's bad because I normally have a tiny waist and my clothes I have show it.

Please tell me this is bloating and will get better soon! I feel like a blimp! Is there anything I can do to settle things down?

wow i can't believe you're showing already! but from the sound of it a lot of it might be bloat...? I have no advice except drink lots of water and avoid salty foods.

Re: I can't hide it!

If you are already showing, but dont want to tell the whole world yet, try to get tops that disguise a bit. That will buy you some time! Bloating is probably the cause.

I don't have any advice either, just congratulations, enjoy it and even if people talk, don't let it bother you. It is what it is and when you and DH are ready to annouce, then they will officially know.

Re: I can't hide it!

I am 9w and I totally have a pouch already (and have had one for about a week already). I am eating so many carbs and not exercising at all so while I know at night when I'm at my largest, a lot of it is bloat, I know that some of it is probably a couple of extra pounds from eating so bad.

I'm really slender too so any difference is extremely noticeable! I've been living in my 2 pairs of loose fit jeans. I need to go through my clothes this weekend and pick out the more flowy shirts, lol.
