8 weeks but bloat makes me look 20 weeks :(

Will this bloat go away or will my bump just grow into the bloat? It is SO uncomfortable... I am wearing a belly band today with my work pants! I am sure the constipation doesnt help at all ... I feel so FULL.

I feel you and I know it's so annoying! I'm 12 weeks and the bloating went away aswell as the constipation. But a few weeks ago I felt like you.


Sometimes I still get bloated, especially in the evening or if I drink lots of water.


I hope you feel better soon! Did you talk to your doc about it?

Yes, we talked about it at my u/s on Monday. He pretty much just told me to eat lots of fiber rich foods, stay hydrated & continue taking my RX for a pre-exisiting IBS issue... I am just hoping and praying that my body regulates itself at some point...  Maybe at 12 weeks like you!

Aw, it kind of came and went for me, too. Although it lasted a bit longer for me than Olivia. Maybe until 14 weeks or so? But at about 12 weeks, my stomach wouldn't go back to being as flat as it was before. So it sort of fluctuated between bloat and a mini-bump. Ha! But I do still get bloated, especially if I eat large meals. I have had to really watch my portion sizes the last few weeks, because that feeling is so awful!

I was very bloated too at first! I didn't really get much of a break from my pants not fitting though because when the bloat was gone, I was already starting to get a bump :) I hope you feel better soon!

Ive been extremely bloated very early on as well. I look huge but its all bloat. My Dr was even surprised when she checked me.


She recommended I take gas-x (she said its okay for me to take as per the instructions), I have to tell you its been a life saver. Gas-x prevents gas for forming in the first place its not so great at relieving bloat once your bloated. I take it after a large meal and its been great.


Try the cherry flavored, its yummy :)
