Don’t worry, the bloating goes away. 🙂 I was VERY bloated for quite a while, nothing I really did helped it. Yes, it’s super uncomfortable and your clothes are tight but I don’t think there is much you can do. The bloating is your body getting used to the extra hormones, just like before your period.

I think mine finally got better around 11-12 weeks.

@RachelNicole: I’m in the same club at 6 wks 4 days. I’m just glad I saved some of my “fat pants”

@zippylef: Thanks for the hope! But I’ve definitely got my fingers crossed that it goes away sooner than 4 weeks from now!

I have bad bloating too – if I let it all hang out, I actually look pregnant even though I’m only 5 wks 6 days!  Dresses are my friend right now.

I am a mini-mealer and it’s not helping.  I do drink carbonated beverages (gingerale, seltzer) b/c they are soothing and I won’t cut them out.

My bloat didn’t hang around for very long. Maybe just for a week around my 4w mark.

Stay away from carbs as they will tend to bloat you more…by carbs I mean breads, pasta and rice….I would just eat lots of veggies, fruits and meats…hope this  helps.

I’m at 16 weeks today and mine hasn’t gotten much better :(. I start off the day looking somewhat regular and by the end of the day I look like I’m 6 months along. It’s the only kind of bump I have at this point! I’ve just been wearing dresses & tunics with leggings as much as I can- jeans and other pants do get uncomfortable, even with the Bella Band. My doctor suggested Gas X- I haven’t tried it yet but it might be worth a shot.

My bloat has recently turned right into bump, so yea.  It may not go away, it may just get harder!  🙂

I am 12 weeks.
