I feel the same way…I’m 8w3d and I feel so bloated! my pants hardley fit so i’ve moved to dresses mostly. I would say right now its mostly bloat since the baby is so small. Most people say you wont show till at least 12 weeks or so (i’m not sure as this is my first pregnancy) but i swear i’m showing a little bit. Its not quite a bump but there is def more chub there than there used to be! not only that but my boobs are popping out of my bras! i need new ones already.

Yep, that is a common symptom.  It’s caused by hormones.  I’m 9wks 3d and starting to get really uncomfortable.  I read that drinking lots of water and eating smaller meals helps.

Dirnk lots and lots of water- get a big water bottle and keep it with you at all times- and watch your diet. Anything with a lot of sodium should go, and try to keep your fiber and veggie intake up to keep your system regular. Try to avoid eating out (fast food and restaurant foods have so much sodium in them) and when you cook at home, just be mindful of the ingredients.

I’m 25 weeks, and I was able to still button my jeans up until I was about 20 weeks… I never experienced the bloat and I think it was because I was so careful about what I was eating/drinking.

I can only wear 2 pairs of pants (I’m nearly 7 weeks) and I have never really bloated in my life.  It’s ridiculous.  And I’m drinking a ton of water and eating pretty well…

sounds like bloating to me!  i get it too. but it comes and goes. when i wake up in the morning, i am barely showing any bump at all and i am 17 weeks. i can suck in my stomach and its flat!  by night time, i look 7 months pregnant if i don’t suck it in.  since wearing jeans that turned out not to fit so comfortably anymore last thursday, i am officially onto dresses, dresses and more dresses!  time to go shopping 🙂

I have the same problem as PurpleUnicorn. I’m almost 12 weeks and when I wake up, I have a flat stomach. By the time I go to bed, I have a big bump showing! Thankfully it’s getting really warm here so dresses are now my go-to outfits. I feel silly unbuttoning my jeans at work, but I have to do what I have to do!  😉

I think I was in maternity pants by 8-10 weeks because the bloating was so bad, then the bump came.  Dresses are a good go to for now!
