When did you start showing, or feeling like your belly was getting bigger during your third pregnancy?

I am a tall girl to begin with, and never really got that big either time until the very end. With all my trials and tribulations with infertility, I never let myself "imagine" symptoms and stuff.

With that said MY BELLY IS BIGGER. My pants have felt a little tight for a week--ok my pants felt a little tight when AF was due. Within the last couple days, when I look at myself in the mirror, my belly is popping a little. You would by no means look at me and say "oh she's definitely pregnant" and I haven't been eating like crazy or gaining weight like crazy or anything.

I'm not even 6 weeks pregnant yet. I'm crazy or something!

With Alex, my pants started feeling tight around 6-8 weeks. That sounds impossible but he's our third live baby and I definitely grew a lot more quickly.

On the flip side, I lost all of my baby weight and then some quicker this last time around!
