I'm 10+3 and by 5pm at night I look like I'm 6 months pregnant including have a waddle as I am so uncomfortable and bloated. Is there anything I can do to help myself? Going for a girls weekend next weekend and totally dreading it as can't sit still long and am miserable xx
I'm 19+1 and for me it hasn't got any better. Midwife says its normal. I only have a small bump with a bit of podge in the morning, after dinner I look massive! Peppermint tea sometimes gives some relief, and I'm starting to figure out that I feel better if I've not overeaten that day. I'm sure others will have some good tips so I'll hang around!
Peppermint tea, not eating gassy foods (beans, cabbage, sugar for me), small meals, no fizzy drinks, sipping water, and exercise/walking tends to help get rid of trapped wind which is what the bloating is.
For me nothing worked and I was throwing up daily and couldn't eat anything. I was exactly the same with the bloating and couldn't do my work trousers up! It soon wore off around 13 weeks for me but then I started to get a bit of a bump.
