So, I'm only 7 W 1D and trying to decide how to "hide" my pregnancy a little longer. We currently have 6 kiddos, the last two were twins. I'm trying to figure out why I'm "showing" so early. I know it's not baby because, well, hello, only 7 weeks! However, while I've lost 6 pounds in the last two weeks, I've gained almost 4 inches in my belly. It's basically just bloating I'm sure, but sheesh, what's a girl to do?? I've had three people in the last two days ask if I was expecting again and we're not ready for the world to know. While it wasn't planned, we know we're blessed to have this wonderfully huge family. However, it's not like announcing a 1st or 2nd pregnancy where everyone is excited. I'd like to keep the info to ourselves a bit longer. Looking back through this I guess there's not really a question in here, just frustrated and needing to vent that I seriously look about 5 months along already. And I have to admit to being a bit interested to find out if there's more than one little one in there again....View Thread
