Bloated one day, better the next, worst at night
I am 6 weeks, some days I feel huge, other days I feel normal, I think its basically fluid retention and bowels, one min I am fine, next bloated. I am slimmer in the morning and have to undo my skirt by the evening.

it gets better
I see that I posted my message on March 3rd, I'm in my second trimester and it definitely went away a long time ago. my belly is growing and now I know it's the baby not the bloating.

Big Belly Babe
I am only 7 weeks but I look like I am 7 months. My tummy is soooo bloated. I can only wear my pants with drawstrings or elastic waists. We are not ready to tell anyone of my pregnancy until after my CVS testing. Needless to say its been a task trying to hide my tummy. I am very petite and fit (fitness coach) For years, I have been known for my signature flat abs and mini 6pk. Everything I own is tight-fitting. Now all of a sudden I am wearing baggy clothes. lol. Vanity is taking a hiatus. lol. This is my first baby and I tell you after hearing that heartbeat in the ultrasound, baggy clothes are fine with me. I just want a healthy baby.

Bloaty and dodgy bowels
hi guys- same here- all is the same boat- 7 weeks preg and have been on and off bloating- do any of you have IBS - i'm thinking maybe that may be an added contributor? Also having days where my bowels are loose too.
