I know exactly how u feel. I am 10 weeks and 2 days and look about 5 or 6 months. Luckily we have already told everyone but people are starting to question my dates or if it is twins.

I'm hoping it will go down a bit because god knows how big I'll be of I get pregnancy weight on top of this! But it is all on my belly so looks like a massive bump x

I had this badly early!! I took a picture at 9 weeks and I look the same as I do now at 16 weeks!! boating went around 13 weeks and has been replaced by actual baby bump. unfortunately I don't have any advice on it, just try and hide it for now and not worry about that people think!!

I sympathise, Kimmy. My bloating has been really awful and I looked massive, but like Roofio mine is starting to go now (14 and a bit weeks) and I have a hard little bump just covered in a bit of fat smile

I had the same thing - between about 7 and 11 weeks I looked just as pregnant as I do now at 18 weeks! Drove me mad but there isn't much you can do - make sure you're wearing comfy clothes so you have room to expand as the day goes on...

I am 8 weeks and two days and am feeling the same, to the point where I had to get maternity jeans!!! I also look about 5 months. I can still comfortably wear my leggings and tops but my jeans were a no go even though I can get in them.

Get yourself some Fybolgel sachets from the chemist and you'll be better in no time. You just mix then with water and drink them. Worked a treat for me when I was at this stage of pregnancy and feeling bloated.

Fybogel sachets that should read. Bloody autocorrect again.
