    Hey Girls, I so need some reassurance here. I know I'm only 4 weeks, but seriously over the last 2 weeks I've definitely been hungrier but I have bloated like crazy. Seriously I went from like a size 5-6 to 8-9. My clothes aren't fitting at all. Is anyone else experiencing bloating or an increase in hunger so early on?

    Thanks in advance!:hugs:

    Yep its completley normal.
    Even if you wernt eating any more than usual,Its very likely you'd be bigger from bloat alone. Also constipation, trapped wind and increasing size of uterus all add to this.

    Im glad its not just me than.....im not quite 6 weeks yet and my clothes are very tight.....the only jeans i can wear and my really low ones because they go under the 'lump' (i know its to early to have a proper 'bump')

    All i want to do is eat everything...all the time.....my mouth is salivating now just because im typing about food lol,
    Im trying to keep it healthy but i crave junk, chocolate/sweets/pizza/Garlic bread/Chips.....Oooh im hungry lol

    Ive had 3 kids already so i wont pretend i had a flat stomach to begin with but i was a UK size 8 if i carry on the way im going i will resemble a elephant by the time im done!

    I am 11 weeks 2 days now and had to buy comfy pants at 6 weeks because of the bloat.
    I couldn't get into any of my size 10's in anything and took a trip to Mothercare for early term jeans,which was bliss when I put them on!
    Lots of bloating,gas etc at that stage.
    I was 6 weeks and looked 5 months gone!

    I am totally not into food this time and it will be my third baby.
    Drink lots of water and peppermint tea haelps a lot with gas!

    Hey hun, I am bloating something shocking that I can't even fit into my regular clothing. You are not alone, it is perfectly normal!
     
  9. Oh absolutely! Bloating, hunger, extreme tiredness, sore (o)(o), etc.... It's all normal. And yes, it's normal this early on. Keep in mind, sometimes symptoms come and go too - so don't stress if they ease up a bit, chances are they will be back and you will have wished you had a break!

    Hi,

    By the end of the day my work trousers buttons are undone and I can't wait to get into my comfy trousers when I get home!

    I feel full of air the whole time!! I just hate trying to suck it in at work so that nobody has anything to say!!!

    Glad I am not the only one out there though!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH GIRLS!!!! Knowing that all of you are going through the same thing has made me feel so much better. I guess I'll just have to cave and buy bigger pants. :cry: At least I know these are all healthy pg signs.

    Hi,

    I have a perfect solution to bloated feeling!! I bought a bump band from Amazon recently and am wearing it now over jeans. It alows you to undo top button (and zip) without anybody seeing!

    It was a great buy!!!
