Hi, I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant and experiencing terrible muscle soreness and stiffness? I wake up during the night with terrible back pain and get really full and bloated after a meal. Is this normal? ��

Im 6 weeks on Tuesday and I'm massively bloated. I start of the day ok but by the end of the day I look about 5 months. I think alot of it is water retention and bloating so I'm trying to eat smaller meals with more high water content and only drink water and squash. Also raising my feet at night helps with water Retention.
Congratulations and I hope your symptoms ease soon xx

It's ALL normal when you're pregnant. Every godawful symptom you can think of plus other things that you didn't even know were possible. Brace yourself. I'm 30 weeks and falling to bits.

I echo what Makeitabetterplace said. Everything and anything you may experience is "normal" in pregnancy (apart from a few things that you should actually worry about).
