Can any of you more experienced pregnant ladies help? I'm six weeks pregnant and when I let my stomach go, it's massive! I reckon a look a good few months gone already. Is this because things inside have grown and stretched ready for my developing baby? If I breathe in it looks pretty much normal again. Help please! xx
It's most probably bloating unless youre further than you think. Bloating is really common in early pregnancy and eventually it's filled with baby instead. Its caused by fluid retention and gass as your digestive system slows due to pregnancy hormones. Gas is one of the less glamourous symptoms. If it's not your first things will start to show much quicker.
I'm the same stage as you Tink. I think the others are right it is the bloat but also I've realised I normally (in a non pg state) walk round holding my tummy IN slightly. Now that we're pg perhaps we feel OK with just letting it all out?!!
