I'm the same! Huge and get so hungry especially between lunch and dinner! Taken to snacking badly and I'm overweight already so today bought some healthier snacks to have at the end of the day. Have a wedding to go to this weekend and not sure what I'll fit.

I'm 8 weeks and I've had to switch to my fat pants.

A colleague in the know said that you can tell now, if you knew. It's all gas, but as it's pregnancy related I'm still calling it my baby bump grin

Bloat, definitely! I was in stretchy waistbands from around 6 weeks just because my belly was so bloated and uncomfortable - and massive! Even now (18+2) I'm still about 70% bloat, 30% bump. Don't panic, it does go down!

Congratulations smile

That's reassuring! Had to go to primark before work this morning to buy bigger trousers!!!
Congrats to you too!

YES! Pretty much couldn't comfortably fit trousers day after BFP. Have gained half a stone at 11+2 (was maybe a little underweight to start), however I am smaller now and far less bloated than I was at the beginning but am in maternity jeans and elasticated waists! You may find it settles down a little smile congrats!

Ok I know this can't be baby yet but I'm massive! Trousers I wore to work last week I can't even fasten this morning. Anyone else experiencing this?

I am eating more but not that much to make such a difference so soon! Could be bloating but it's both upper and lower abdomen. Feel awful and just want to crawl back into bed rather than go to work!
