    Big Tummy one day - seems smaller the next

    Howdy!
    Question -
    Some days I really look as though I am showing (16.5 weeks) and others, I don't know that anyone can tell, as if things have rearranged themselves down there. Does this seem normal?

    Re: Big Tummy one day - seems smaller the next

    Sue - I'm about a week behind you, and I have sort of the same thing...some days my belly's just busting out, and others it's barely there, although I definitely notice that as the day wears on, it gets bigger. So in the morning if it doesn't look so big, by the end of the day I look huge! Also depends on how much I've eaten/drank too...but there's definitely a fluctuation. Except for my boobs...those stay huge throughout the day.

    Thanks - my bb's do the same thing! They don't change much - but my belly - does. I find it interesting. Granted I have had some trouble with constipation - (in the past week I have not) so perhaps that is it? Perhaps more water one day and not much the next?

    When are you due?

    I'm due July 4th and I have the same happening. I definately have a tummy all the time now, but it seems that some days I'm larger than others. I think it does make a difference if I'm having constipation or if I eat/drink allot. I kind of like it when I'm bigger - it makes me fell more preggo now than just FAT!

    And if your baby moves from high to low. At 35 weeks, there are some days where I carry really high and look like a hippo while others she is way low and I can breath.

    I'm due July 13 or so. I haven't noticed if it changes due to constipation (my butt can't seem to decide what it wants to do...some days, no problem, others, forget even trying). Haven't been measured by the doc yet, but have my next appt. on Feb. 3rd.

    My next appointment is the 31st of January....I will have to see if she will measure it then.....if not I am going to ask if she feels I am moving right along and look how I should for my time frame etc.....I just worry that the baby isn't growing and progressing as it should be. Know what I mean?

    I really think it is due to a few things. How the baby is positioned, what tryp of clothes you are wearing (maternity clothes make you look bigger) and if you just ate...Nothing to be concerned about.

    Re: Big Tummy one day - seems smaller the next

    I am 17 weeks, Due June 29th and I have had the same type of thing happening. I have not had the lovely experience of being constipated but it may be a food thing as was mentioned. I know for me it depends alot on what I am wearing. I teach so I have been keeping things covered, but I notice when I am just throwing on something at home I look a lot bigger. I can't wait to start showing more! A girl I work with is about 2 weeks behind me and she seems rounder than I do! I haven't gained any weight at all, in fact my first trimester I lost 7 and only gained 2 back so maybe that has a little to do with it as well.

    I'm 6 months pg and even though I'm much bigger then what I was at 16 weeks, I still notice slight changes in my size. I think sleep makes it go down a bit
