I am in my first tri-mester (only at 5 weeks) but I am so jumpy. At work if someone walks up to my desk and says "Hi" I'll jumpt and gasp. If my phone beeps for a reminder or message I jump.
I am guessing it's because of all the hormoes going through me?
Also I am so bloated I already look like a have a pregnancy stomach, and unfortunately I gained weight over the summer (before trying to conceive) so already my pants already were starting to not fit.
Should I bite the bullet and get maternity pants now or just get regular but larger sized pants?

I've always been jumpy, so I can't help you there, but I can relate to your question regarding bloating and weight gain.
We got married in April and so we were happy and ate and got heavier. A lot of my work clothes weren't fitting. I am currently between 5 and 6 weeks and have what could be construed as a pregnant belly . .. but we aren't telling anyone about it until after the holidays - when we are closer to 3 months.
I keep reading things about maternity wear, belly bands and "inbetween" clothes for after giving birth . . . I really don't want to but 2 whole new wardrobes. May just live in yoga pants . . .

Since I found out that I am pregnant I have noticed that I have been a lot more jumpy or easily startled. Before I found out I was not easily startled by anything but have noticed that I am a lot more jumpy now.
