Q: 7 weeks super bloated!

Can't button my pants! Been doing the rubber band trick to extend my button area but that's not working anymore lol. Tried a belly band and it is too much pressure and rides up all the time. I just broke down and got some maternity pants, as embarrassing as that is to admit lol! Anybody else bloat this bad with baby number 3? It wasnt this bad with my first two kids til I was about 12 weeks

@calvingirl thanks for the reply!
I ended up ordering some maternity pants for work since we have to wear khakis lol. And I think I'll be ordering some regular maternity jeans for my days off. I was in maternity pants at 12 weeks with my first baby and I think around 8w with my second.

I'm wicked bloated and have been since 5 wks. I'm 8 wks now. I have been wearing dresses when I can, and black yoga pants with long shirts so people don't notice I'm actually wearing sportswear in a business office setting. Anything I can do to not put pressure on my abdomen is good. I still have a couple pair of maternity jeans with low bands that I wear on the weekends - as long as I cover it with a longer, slightly baggy shirt, you can't tell. I'd rather be comfortable right now. Mine is way worse than my last two kids too - last time I was still wearing work pants till 11 wks. This time - nope!
