Has any of you experienced major bloating in the first trimester? I am exactly 7 weeks, but look about 6 months! I am not imagining it either - My hubby finally agreed last night that he too could see it and was worried. (after years of being trained to say of course you don't look fat whenever asked, I knew that he meant it!)
I am extremely sporty, but I have given up cardio for the last 2 weeks due to the cramping I had been experiencing!
My Doc said it's the uterus expanding as they get to the size of a grape fruit, but I am only 7 weeks- not 12 and it's more like a water mellon than a grape fruit!!!
My hubby reckons i could be further along than thought- but HCG levels last week were 2122 then 7989 3 days later - it would be much higher if I was further along. I did get symptoms very early of pregnancy - My breasts were tender 2 weeks before AF due and I also tested positive 6 days before AF due.
I am hopefully going for an early scan next week, due to pain and my past gnyae probs, so hopefully it will be dated then.
But has anyone else experienced this amount of bloating- or am I destend to be like a beached whale soon!!
