@SaraP2012:  no one can tell i am pregnant and i am almost 17 weeks haha. I still fit into all my clothes. If it weren’t for the ultrasound not sure i would even believe it myself.

Bloat is super common. I have lots of women who come in between 6-8wks to buy maternity pants bc they’re so bloated they’re pants don’t fit. I’ve noticed usually it goes down by the end of the 1st trimester. Be good for a bit then start showing depending on your size & baby of course. Right now I’m super bloated!  I loved super duper pregnant in a dress I wanted to wear today. Needless to say I put it in the back of the closet!

I feel you. I’m 7 weeks, haven’t gained any weight but I definitely have a little round baby bloat going on. Keep in mind your uterus has also doubled in size. Between that & gass, it could totally account for the volume!

I basically felt bloated the entire time and now I’m just getting a big belly (25 weeks).  It never really went away for me, I had a very flat tummy pre-pregnancy and as soon as I got pregnant, there was like no sucking that thing in anymore, ever.  Maybe it was in my head more than it was obvious to people, but I think I maybe had 2 or 3 days around beginning of 1st tri where I could comfortably button my pre-pregnancy pants.

UGH. I hate being bloated + gassy which has been a reoccuring thing in my pregnancy. I am 12 weeks and I am feeling a lot less bloated. I’ve been taking little weekly pictures just to see how I grow and I look bigger in my week 9 picture than I am right now, just from all the bloat! Haha it’ll definitely go down eventually just gotta be patient as hard as that is when you’re uncomfortable. Hope you feel better soon!

Honestly? It doesn’t.. you might have “good days” where you feel fine but I’m 34 wks 2 days and feel bloated/swollen as ever… it’s mostly baby now, but the bloated feeling doesn’t go away.
