Bump development?

Hey all,

Just wondering how your bumps are getting along? Mine seems to be developing quite high up (9weeks) and just basically looks like I am getting really fat.

Is this normal???? (Sorry dc1)

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 31-Oct-15 17:36:01

At 9 weeks it's probably more bloating than actual bump. Don't worry, there is a huge range of normal

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 17:37:07

Oh and also the waistband of my jeans is digging in massively already... This is my first child and I am worried that it shouldn't be like this so early? Also suffering from severe heartburn, all the time. Never had it before and now for the last week it has been agony. Please someone assure me this is normal???

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 17:39:43

Thanks armani just didn't realise the changes would be so quick... I look like I have eaten my own body weight on Christmas dinners!!!! And my boobs hurt like hell. Tell me that this is normal for so early on... I know the worst is yet to come but I feel so uncomfortable already...

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 31-Oct-15 17:43:15

Yeah it's all normal. My boobs were more sore in the early weeks than they are now at 32 weeks. Although it's awful, heartburn is probably better than puking (I've had both)

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 17:46:58

I've only had a bit of nausea, feels more like motion sickness than anything else. As if I have been up and down constantly in a lift, if that makes sense... Sympathy for the puking, but the heart burn is horrendous. It's constant, and is totally not fun. And I don't know how much longer I can last with what feels like the equivalent of hot rocks strapped to my chest! Argh, don't get me wrong, but this is all extremely painful... Although you are 32 weeks? What's your DD?

I was really bloated at 9 weeks... I am 14 weeks now and not so bloated but I am developing a little bump I'm not it's the sausage rolls

My boobs have got MASSIVE though! And I sympathise about the heartburn, have you been taking Gaviscon?

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 31-Oct-15 17:54:48

Get the gaviscon liquid, it really helps and it's perfectly safe to take.
My DD is December 28th smile

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 17:56:00

Yeah I have, but it doesn't seem to be helping! I am supposed to be going out this evening, but I genuinely just want to put on my pjs and slob in front of the tv. This is first baby for me, so just a bit concerned that I am feeling this rubbish. Heart burn is a complete bitch. Feels like I have swallowed acid, and as I said before, I seem to have bloated up massively. Tracksuit bottoms are my best friend already. I am normally a size 8-10 and I am wearing my old size jeans already. Argh, I am clearly growing some sort of monster!!! Any advice? ESP on the boobs and heart burn?

TwllBach Sat 31-Oct-15 17:57:42

My boobs have just kept growing I'm afraid. This is my first baby too and I have been a bit freaked out by my own body and the changes tbh. If you are that worried could you go to your GP maybe? Oor call the OOH doctor now? I did when I had period like cramps and they really put my mind at ease and reassured me.

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 17:58:42

K thanks armani going to take a stroll to the shops with DP now, dodging trick or treaters, to get some. Hoping the fresh air will help. And fingers crossed for a pre new year baby for you. Dp says that he can already feel the difference (we found out at five weeks), so don't know if it's just bloat or him being excited...

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:00:31

I would call the OOH, but I have not had any cramping and no bleeding so assume whoever they are are just making their presence felt in there... But obviously don't want to announce anything until the 12 week scan. I just feel horrible and if I don't go out tonight then there will be questions...

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:02:01

I guess I am just freaked out by so many changes in so little time! Sorry, and thanks for your replies

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:04:14

Ps I just tried to put my gilet on and it wouldn't do up!!!!!!!!!! Oh god. Are you sure this is normal?

IndomitabIe Sat 31-Oct-15 18:15:26

Hello OP.

I'm currently 19 weeks with DC2.

I can confirm bloating is very much normal at 9 weeks! With DC1 my bloating was awful, and I felt terrible with it. I did bloat right out of my normal jeans, way before you'd expect a bump.

This time, bloating was less severe, and nausea not as bad, but I still couldn't do my jeans up from something ridiculous like 5 weeks.

In a couple of weeks I'm sure the bloating will go down (and that'll make you worry) and a few weeks after that a real bump will start to appear.

If you're feeling rubbish, just say you're not feeling well. Maybe it's a virus? Maybe it was something you ate? If you want to stay home, then do. Feeling awful in pregnancy is normal but you shouldn't feel you have to 'keep up appearances'. Rest will help you feel better.

Do whatever makes you happy. Hope you feel better soon. thanks

Perfectly normal I'd say! Don't worry! My boobs are massive compared with pre pregnancy (24wks). Gone from 32dd to 34f so far! Get a bigger soft bra, that will help the boobs a bit. I felt so bloated early on and couldn't stand anything touching or pressing on my belly! My lovley sister gave me some of her old maternity clothes at around 10 weeks which felt wonderfully comfy compared to the oversized clothes I had bought to tide me over! I have had horrendous heartburn, acid and indigestion AllHallows, so I feel your pain! You can take loads of gaviscon or gaviscon advance (which is vile but works)! Good luck. Hopefully you. Will feel a bit better soon. Xx

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:51:02

Thank you all. Have cancelled plans. Bring on a bath, a onesie and some crap to eat for dinner... (Ps what are the rules on steak - well done is fine, right?) seriously don't want to sound like a drama queen and I know I should be grateful (and I am, I really am, this is a much wabted baby) but i have never felt this rough before... Feel like I am hungover, constipated and have the worst boob pain ever, every time dp touches my stomach or my chest it is literally agony!!!! Please tell me to man up, or slap me with a metaphorical wet flannel

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:52:43

Ps just invested in some more of the liquid gaviscon... Can I just glug it from the bottle????

TwllBach Sat 31-Oct-15 18:55:36

I glug it from the bottle OP.

I've wanted a baby forever, had a few mcs but I swear to God being pregnant is hideous. I have never felt so miserbaly poorly for such a long time. I don't think feeling poorly and acknowledging it means you don't want your baby smile

IndomitabIe Sat 31-Oct-15 18:57:38

Glug away!

Enjoy your steak (fine as far as I know)

It's ok to feel awful. Being much wanted doesn't make your body respond any differently.

"Hungover" is exactly the description I used to explain it to DH. Hope you feel better soon.

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 18:59:16

Seriously, can't wait to have this baby, seriously can't. But this is horrible! It was all fine until about a week ago (typically when we went on holiday!) nine weeks!!!! How many are there to go???! My DP bless him is being really great, but I just feel awful. Gaviscon is helping, somewhat. Going to have a bath now and dp is making me dinner, but I can now feel a migraine coming on as well... sad

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 19:00:10

I feel like a child right now! I am 30 ffs and I want my mum. I need to man up.

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 19:06:04

Would anyone mind if I posted a pic of my 'bump'/bloat to see if it looks normal for nine weeks??

Allhallowseve2015 Sat 31-Oct-15 19:16:16

Sorry I realise that was possibly a rather peculiar thing to say to strangers on the Internet! Anyway, had my bath, and DP is making dinner, but despite the gaviscon I just feel like my chest is dissolving in acid. Who knew it would be this hard.

IndomitabIe Sat 31-Oct-15 19:28:18

I guarantee you it's normal! (Unless you're concerned there might be twins in there, which is unlikely but entirely possible).

And you will feel better in the next few weeks.

Keep swigging the gaviscon, but see the doc on Monday and ask for some ranatidine or something a bit more hardcore. (There are a few you can take during pregnancy).

Have you joined an antenatal club on here? I'm sure there'll be plenty of people at the same stage who can sympathise.

Go in the bath and try to relax!
