I'm the same, totally bloated and I'm not even 5 weeks yet

They say it is the hormones that affect your intestines and cause the gas and constipation I can't find anywhere a time frame for when it goes away though!

My bloating eased up a lot at 8 weeks. It's not completely gone, but it's not nearly as bad as it was before that.

I had that for 2weeks. It's definitely constipation, gas and water! My digestive tract just quit moving entirely for a couple weeks. Then a couple days ago, I got these horrifying cramps.. not period type ones, the ones you get when you really have to go potty. FInally was able to potty and lost my belly in about 10 minutes flat. Hurt so bad I almost passed out but I have a flat tummy again and my clothes fit! Hormones suck!

Its normal to bloat, make sure you gets plenty of fluids. I have a little bloat which makes me look like I have a little belly.

I'm bloated out too! Am 7 wks into my 3rd pregnancy and I didn't show before 3 or 4 months with my first. This time my jeans are really tight and I feel so uncomfortably bloated...its horrible! I think its a combination of water retention and eating more than usual to ease the sickness. Hopefully it will level out as the months go on! Good luck everyone! x

Im ok-ish in the mornings but over the day I seem to get bigger and bigger like someone is inflating me!! Defo down to a mixture of odd eating habits, gas and constipation me thinks!

Just hope Im not letting all the 'air' out at night when Im asleep ...if I am DH is keeping awfully quiet about it (mind you, with my hormones at the moment, maybe he knows better

I had a lovely flat stomach at 4 weeks and then by 6 weeks i looked about 6/7 months gone. Huge bloat! It has been so uncomfy and tight feeling so ive been in leggings and baggy tees. I cant wait to have a baby bump but this is ridiculous. I havent even been eating extra, if anything ive been eating healthy, loadsa fruit and veg etc... BUt being this huge is hard when i dont want to tell too many people until ive had my 12 week scan!
