Im only 5.5 weeks and already I just feel gross. My boobs are bursting out of my bra, which isn't a bad thing, however I just feel fat. I am so unbelievably bloated. My clothes already don't fit, how is that? All I feel comfortable in is sweatshirts. My hubby keeps telling me, I cant wear them forever, but that's all I want. I went yesterday to look for clothes and it did NOT go well. I don't want to look at maternity clothes, because I feel like ill jinx myself or something. Im so afraid of settling into pregnant life, because I don't go to see the heartbeat until next week and Im just scared something will happen;( UGH!!! sorry for venting
This early its technically not a baby bump, it would be bloating and water weight. Just wear loose fitting clothes for now. You can either get maternity clothes, go clothes one size bigger to fit, or even get pants with an stretchy waistband/loose fitting shirts.
Be confident...baby weight is beautiful!
10 weeks pregnant with #2!! 20 month old beautiful baby girl
I feel you girl!! I am 6 weeks...major bloat and have had a huge face break out. Even got a massive zit on the back of my neck...WTF? Do we even have zit producing pores back there?! I had some light cramping which my doctor was overly cautious about, so they have told me I can't do any exercise except walking until after next Monday when we have an u/s to hear the heartbeat. If I can't exercise I automatically feel fat. My mood is luckily still good because I'm still on such a high to actually be pregnant, but I already had one "I'm fat and look ugly" moments on my husband the other night! Yikes!
@fingersxed4 you go for an u/s next Monday? I go next Wed I made the mistake of having an u/s @ just 5 weeks and they saw the gestational and yolk sac, but no baby. I know that's WAY to early, but it has me all worried. My hcg levels around 5 weeks were 9760, so I hope it all goes well. Im excited, but so nervous. How about you?
I did the same! I went at 5w1d because my RE monitors consistently for the first few weeks once you get pregnant, before you have an OBGYN appt. We only saw the gestational and yolk sac as well. Monday will be 6w5d so im praying we see a nice strong heartbeat. How far along are you?
I am about 5 weeks 4 days. My doctor practically scared me, because when I went in I was confused on how far along I was. She did a u/s and only saw a sac. She sent me to radiology, because she said she should see more at this point. The tech did my u/s and saw both gestational and yolk sac Then my doctor had me do blood tests and my first hcg was 5870 and a little less than 48 hours later it was 9760. She had me feeling uneasy, because she was saying she wanted it to double ( it basically almost did) and she said I had to wait until next week so we could see more. I was so angry I called back, however she left. So I talked to her nurse and the nurse said everything look right on track. So till this day I am still uneasy and am excited but scared for next week. Still mad at my doctor lol Sorry for ranting lol According to others and my research things look good, but you never know How are you feeling?
I am totally feeling the bloat! I feel like I've been blown up like a balloon :-/ non of my clothes are comfortable and jeans are impossible.
Think im going to have to invest in some slouchy clothes this weekend.
