Why am I so bloated??


Hey all,

I'm 6 weeks today and I can barely do my jeans up even my underwear feels tight. I know my uterus is nowhere near making me 'show' yet so why am I so bloated??

I'm drinking loads of water so I shouldn't have water retention, I'm not currently constipated so what the heck is it??

Grrrr.

Xx

Munchkin I don't know why but I can sympathize! My tummy is so bloated today it feels like I could pop it with a pin like a balloon! I've suddenly felt my clothes are all too tight & I seem to have piled weight on overnight! Maybe constipated?

My last pregnancy (2nd pregnancy if you don't count my m/c & chemical) I was so bloated in the first several weeks. It was beyond ridiculous. I remember constantly taking comparison pictures (to put up next to my "pre-pregnancy" picture) & going on and on about how I wasn't going to be able to hide my pregnancy until 12 weeks along.

No idea why I was so bloated but you're definitely not alone!

I'm afraid it's just progesterone! It slows your digestion right down so I'm afraid there is just not that much you can do about the bloat! Mine was worst about 6-9weeks and then it settled a bit but I still get bloated by the end of the day now. X
