Like I know the bean is only teeny weeny but what casuing my stomach to look so bloated? Im afraid people will start wondering ( as I know I would) and my pants for work are VERY tight on the tummy now..... Please tell me this is normal :)

It is!! Time to start looking at your diet to help a little. I'm eating a bowl of fruit salad every evening with lots of apples & kiwi etc and it's helping things move along! So the bloating is much better but still pretty big! Oh and lots of water.

Yep. I was kinda bloaty from the start. But I really didn't have a proper bump til nearly 20 weeks. The tummy was getting bigger alright but I just looked like I'd put on weight.
