Its awful. Feel like big solid bloated lump. No bump yet, couldn't tell anyway as i'm so bloated. Naturally slim and look ridiculous. Was constipated but this is much improved with some help, bloating has not improved. I eat super super healthily and drink lots. Any tips?

I got very bloated when I was eating a lot of raw veg as it was all I could stomach at the time. It was compounded by drinking fizzy water, so much so that I looked about 6 months gone blush. Since I've cut back on these, and added a glass of prune juice every day the bloating has gone. I'm 15 weeks too and it's an awkward stage. Tbh I look a little bit tubby but not pregnant.

Peppermint or fennel tea really help. A cup in the afternoon and another before bed did wonders for me!

Fennel tastes like liquorice to me grin peppermint is ok but grim once it starts to cool down!
