I am almost 9 weeks.
I look 5 months-no kidding! smileys/smiley5.gif
I can hardly bear to eat,all food makes me gag right now but I must look like I am eating for 3!
I remember with my first DS I didn't show until 5 months gone.
DS number 2 I was in maternity clothes at 12 weeks and I was huge near the end,I wasn't overeating.
DR told me I held lots of fluidsmileys/smiley9.gif
I am already in maternity clothes now and feel so puffy!
I am hoping I don't balloon,I couldn't stand it at the end last time.
I am only small too.
Is there anything besides drinking lots of water to help with excess fluid?
I am eating green veggies,drinking water,anything to help.
I look like a pumpkin with a couple of legs stuck on smileys/smiley9.gif

My DR told me some women just hold more fluid than others and because I amonly 5"3 its more noticeable smileys/smiley36.gif
