Bloating

I am 10+3 with dc2 and I am so bloated I look 6 months pregnant already. It's driving me crazy, I've tried everything to stop the bloat but it's not happening. I can feel my uterus already.

Anyone got any tips? It's really getting me down because my clothes aren't fitting properly and I'm starting to look very pregnant!

I'm exactly the same 6+3 with dc2 and I actually wore a maternity dress today so I could breath properly and feel comfortable.

Not going to be a kept a secret for long!

Peppermint tea
Walking
Stretches
Plenty of water
Not too many salty foods

This too will pass (37weeks here...)

I have tried some of those things! So frustrating!! I will look at those I haven't tried so thank you!

And I'm glad I'm not the only one in maternity stuff grin not sure it helps that I was pregnant before my DS turned 1, my body hadn't had a whole year without being pregnant and seems to have decided it will just revert to 6 months pregnant!!

Im 8 weeks or so and was overweight to start with but the bloating is beyond funny! It gets worse as the day goes on and I'm finding it uncomfortable to sleep on my front (more like recovery position) at night.
