    Some of you may have seen my 'bump' pics in 'your bumps' section and this is my pic 2 weeks ago...

    [​IMG]

    I just thought with it being my 4th I was 'showing' quicker!

    Up until just after I went on holiday it was still like this and I noticed yesterday that it was going down, today is near enough completely gone!!!!

    I have a flat (ish) tummy again!!! WTF?

    i'm a little worried now....:dohh: The only thing I have done is take fybogel twice daily for 4 days to help me go whilst on holiday...would this have gotten rid of my bloat do you think?

    This is my tummy today.....

    I think your 1st tummy must have been a bit of bloating from water, new hormones etc.

    The fiborgel wud definatly have got rid of that, but in the 2nd pic just above ur knicker line a new wee tummy is developing.

    Do you think? I am a bit worried.....I really did feel pg when I was that big..none of my clothes fit me and I was having to wear maternity stuff, but now I can get back into my old clothes again and seem to have lost the puffiness from my face too....

    I havn't been sick at all yet, just nauseus feeling so its not down to that.

    Should I keep taking the fybogel as its really helping with my bowels?

    My 'bump' comes and goes along with my symptoms. Some days i look and feel very pregnant other days i can't tell. Early bumps are definately bloating! Having a flat tummy now certainly doesn't mean anything is wrong. My mum always used to say that you "slank before you bank" as in slim down before you pile on the pounds!

    Most of the people with bellies in the first 12 weeks are due to bloat of all kinds. I wouldn't worry. Even when I wasn't preggers I had a belly on/off if I was bloated from eating something funky, too much water, that time of the month etc.

    Yep i agree with every one else hun , It looks like its just your bloat wich has gone down , And once you get over 12 weeks , and baby is moving above the pubic bone .. You will get a true baby bump hun :). xx .

    Wow, that's quite a change!
    But in your new pic, it looks more of an actual bump is forming, it looks 'thicker', whereas the first pic it does look quite bloated and a bit uncomfy.

    I would agree, i have "fat" trousers and sometimes theyre too big sometimes they fit perfectly.
    I do think bowels has a big part aswell i felt really bloated (felt it on my trousers) but after i went i felt miles better and the trousers fitted better :lol:

    I did the same. I put it down too bloat, and constipation.

    You'll start slowly getting a bump now though. :D

    wow!! that's a huge difference! But I'd say it's all due to bloating. Your tummy doesn't go away without a full blown m/c. Right? Everything is still inside.

    Can you take fybergel safely then as i was going to buy some of this due to uncomfy bloat and IBS. I think am gonna get constipation quite badly anyways so wud rather start taking it now if its ok.

    The same thing happened to me. I think I posted my bump pics close to yours on the other thread and now my bump is gone too:cry: It must have been bloating and constipation. I'm starting fiber sure today and my nurse changed my prenatal to one with a better stool softener. GL!:hug:
