Bloated or....

I have my booking in appointment on Tuesday next week, so I know I could wait really but I just keep wondering... Do you bloat huge amounts in your first trimester of pregnancy?! I think I'm around 8/9 weeks pregnant but is it possible I may have this wrong and be further along than I think? My tummy just looks really big, both my mum and partner have pointed it out and I'm like no no it's just bloating...

I don't think I've ever met a pregnant woman that didn't bloat a lot during the first trimester! It's totally normal smile

I got very bloated very quickly and felt huge almost from time of bfp. Definitely by 8/9 weeks I felt like I looked pregnant...

Thank you guys smile good to hear because I feel like I look pregnant too! But I know I wouldn't be showing this early!!

I am! Im nine weeks and looking obviously pregnant. I've been pregnant before and had a c section too.

I suppose it is different for everyone! I literally have no idea as this is my first! I feel very clueless as to what to expect / what's normal! Looking forward to my appointment next week so I can feel a bit more in the know! smile

Depending on what I'd eaten I could pass for 6 months pregnant come bed time. Has eased off massively in the second trimester.

I was bloated from about 7 weeks and wore floaty tops/scarves all of the time. The only thing I found was that it never really went away because as soon as I stopped bloating, the real bump came along - 2nd pregnancy so typical to show earlier. As soon as I put on a tighter fitting dress at 14 weeks pregnant, the bump and news was out there, no more hiding it! And people were shocked that I was 'only' 14 weeks by the size on me. Even though I had lost 5lbs through sickness!
