Hope you can help with this one. I am only 7 weeks gone but I have a big bump. I am not imagining it because H2B even said it to me. All my trousers are tight and I am afraid of wearing clingy tops. My belly is also hard especially at the top and below my belly button. I honestly look like most girls do at 5 months.
Please help me as I don't know if this is normal or not. I thought it was bloating but I really don't think so now. Help!! Thanks
Well at least I did anyone..
I did have a cyst on my ovary which made me even bigger which was detected on my first scan... (But this is highly unsual..)
So dont worry about the belly it will calm down and then the baby bump will appear..
Alot of people getting bloated in the first few weeks of pregnacy and look bigger at this stage than at 15 weeks..
Bloating like this is normal, and bloating can certainly make your tummy feel really hard... But if you're worried, get it checked out for your own peace of mind..........
I'm not really worried about it. I am just afraid of people noticing. Or that I have twins or am further along than the doctor said!! I won't have a scan until I am 20 weeks. So hopefully it will be ok by then and I won't look like I am 9 months!!!
I was very bloated up to 12 weeks then it settled - didn't look much bigger at 18weeks than I did at 8 weeks IYKWIM?
Completely normal. Most women experience bloating in the early stages, as your body goes through so many changes. Honestly though - no-one else will notice. At worst, they will just think you've put on some weight, but they won't know you're pg, as it won't look like a bump to them! As the other girls have said, as you get further along, you won't be any bigger than you are now, for a while yet anyway.
Dont worry I was the same, I was in maternity clothes by 8 weeks !!!
Im still growing like mad.
Its just hard at the start when you are trying to hide it before you tell everyone.
People started noticing me before I even told them, but they just thought I was getting fat !!!!!!!!
But if you think it might be you might be better off getting a private scan early (that's how we found out) and then the amount of amazing care you receive is brilliant, best of luck
I had no bump at all til about 5 months and it's twins
Oh enjoy it. I was fed up with people asking me was i sure i was pregnant and where was this baby until about 17wks!!
