Feeling bloated and miserable

Hey girls,

I am only 6 weeks pregnant and feel so uncomfortable already from being so bloated. I really feel fat and I am not even showing! I am wearing clothes that I wore when I was 20 pounds heavier.

How normal is this when you are just a few weeks pregnant? I recently broke the good news to my mother and she goes, "I thought you were looking puffy Friday night..." Geez, am I showing it in the face too? I feel soooo fat! HELP! Is this what it will feel like for the next 7-8 months?

Re: Feeling bloated and miserable

all i can say is that i felt and looked bloated pretty much right after i found out i was pregnant. i started wearing pants with an elastic waist early on because i just felt uncomfortable in my regular pants, which kind of bummed me out, but oh well. as long as i feel comfy that's all that matters to me!! now at almost 13 weeks my tummy is definitely getting firm already and there is no way i could still wear regular clothes! i don't have that bloated feeling anymore but now i'm just getting bigger and bigger! sometimes i feel like my belly couldn't possibly strech much more, but i guess we're all in for a big surprise, eh?!!!

hang in there! the bloating will get better once the baby moves up a bit!

take care and congrats on your pregnancy, by the way!!!
