What is going on with Old Navy sizes...too small or too big?

Last summer and twenty pounds lighter, I was wearing a size 4 in Old Navy pants/shorts comfortably. I figured they clothes were still running a bit big, since I still weighed 125 pounds.
Fast forward to now and while twenty pounds is quite significant when you're only 5'3", I'm now barely squeezing into a size 10 in Old Navy, even though I can still get into my Express size 6 pants (uncomfortable, but button-able).
I suppose I'm seeing if there are any similar stories out there. Does buying petite somehow change the measurements in waist size from the regulars or talls? Has anyone else seen a change in sizing over the last six months?
Yes, this is to help boost my self esteem after thinking the 8's would fit fine and finding to my horror that I could barely zipper them.
Also, losing weight is a viable option here, but that's not my question.
