Fat Already!(13 Posts)
Hiya everyone, I hope you are all well this morning?
I am only 7 weeks and seriously I feel so big compared to normal. I know it's not the baby as it is still a little seed, but I feel so bloated and actually look pregnant.. I have gained 5 pounds already too. Is this normal or am I just getting fat because I have been eating better maybe? I don't suppose it helps that I usually am in the gym 6 days a week and have cut that back because I don't want to risk anything I always hoped I would be size 10 still with a little bump!
I'm 10 weeks and feel enormous already. I think it's mostly bloat. If you're slim to begin with it's more noticeable I think!
I am also 7 weeks and also have major bloat! Particularly by the evening when I've gained a whopping 4 inches from the morning that I cannot hold in. But it is just wind.
I read something yesterday about your bowels loosening during pregnancy, releasing gases into your body which causes the morning sickness and the bloat (or something like that). I'm also a size 8/10 so feels more noticeable.
I read wearing non-restrictive clothing can help prevent some of the bloat. I'm glad I'm a dress wearer as it's definitely easier to hide!
Im 8 weeks and the same I am overweight anyway but I feel so huge and my clothes are getting tighter already.
I'm 12 weeks and have been in maternity jeans for the last 3 weeks... Don't know if it's because it's my third or if I'm going to be the size of a house at the end!
I'm 9+5 and I am slowly growing out of clothes My favourite jeans are now too tight to be comfy and even though I tried the hair bobble round the button trick they have been relegated to the boxes on top of the wardrobe.
I was moaning about getting fat yesterday and DP corrected me...you are growing our baby, you are not fat!
I I know exactly how you feel! I'm 9 and half weeks and I am sooooo bloated I strted to question whether I was further along than I originally thought but I think it is just bloating! Is so uncomfortable! I am quite small too (size 8-10) so it is so noticeable!!
Yes, the baby itself is still small, but your uterus is bigger and you already have something like 10% extra blood circulating compared to 7 weeks ago. I think it is also possible that your body has started storing a tiny bit more fat to build up stores to prepare for breastfeeding and it all makes a difference. It is probably mostly the dreaded bloat though.
I was a size 10 before my first pregnancy, and I did have to buy new knickers in size 12 half way through the pregnancy! I was not impressed. But everyone carries differently so you may escape that. Hope you are feeling well otherwise!
I am 7+2 and can't do my jeans up any more. It's mainly bloat, but I've also had to eat every 2 hours or feel awful. So, might not be all bloat!
Also DC2, which is my excuse.
I'm taking lame belly pics this time. The difference between 6 & 7 weeks is huge. Though to anyone other than me I just look a tad chunky.
I've got maternity clothes in the garage. Trying to resist getting them out.
I am glad it's not just me (well yknow.. Not like glad you are all feeling bloated and uncomfortable!) it's a strange feeling when you are use to being slimmer. Not a nice feeling but then I remember that I have something amazing going on and then I feel okay. It doesn't help that the boyfriends ex was skinny through pregnancy and skinny straight after.. X
I'm 10 weeks and look pregnant! I wasn't slim before but my wobble has turned into a solid pregnant belly.
I'm a size 8 .. still lucky but my stomach is massive since about 12 weeks.. I'm now 16w and this is my first baby so I'm surprised! I had to buy maternity jeans the other day as I'm sick of wearing my jeans either unbuttoned.. fastened with a bobble or fastened and cutting me in two! lol.. it will be the bloating probably at the moment for you which started about 8 weeks for me.. don't worry growing a human is a beautiful time
I'm 14 weeks. My uterus is only just above my public bone but I have a decent bump.
I know it's guts, wind, fluid and lard. But it doesn't like being confined. I look on this as my guts being very unhappy at being evicted from their normal safe place in my pelvis.
All of my clothes fit me perfectly. But I feel bloated and miserable.
Today I discovered maternity trousers (this is my first pregnancy) & am never taking them off again. You will have to peel them from my corpse in my 90s.
I felt as it wasn't solid bump maternity clothes needed to wait. Utter nonsense. It's miserable enough with the puking and tiredness - I am embracing the huge...
