Feeling pregnant...

This may seem a bit odd, but this is my first pregnancy so I don't know what to expect.

Are there particular times of the day when you feel more/most pregnant?

I'm 8weeks ish at the mo and have been lucky on the nausea front so far. As a result, there's times when I don't feel very pregnant. But now, in the evenings, I do. I seem to be more aware of the pressure, feel bloated etc.

Anyone else in early pregnancy have 'more pregnant' times?

I am just under 5 weeks and feel bloated only in the evenings. I remember feeling the same with my first pregnancy 5 years ago, but feel absolutely flat and toned in the morning!

Congratulations both of you! I'm just 5 weeks (I think 5 anyway - due to an irregular bleed) and I've been exhausted in the afternoon and feeling really bloated but not so much the rest of the day!

Likewise to both of you too. I suppose it makes sense to feel it more at the end of the day. I don't think I'm really going to believe it until I've had my first scan!

I'm the same! Still in disbelief so I'm wary of telling people whereas my oh wants to tell everyone!

I am 28+3 and only started to feel pregnant in the last couple of weeks! The start feels just like a dream.

I'm 37+5 with my first pregnancy I found I didn't feel massively pregnant until recently but it been told by some people that I'm (bump) is small so that maybe why, the only thing I will say is the early stages I was so tired all the time but it does pass, I'd say tired at the start of pregnancy then fine till about 37 and now I'm beginning to get tired again!
Congratulations and good luck with your pregnancy flowers

I'm nearly 5 weeks and I feel pregnant some days and not others! I felt lousy yesterday morning, so ill and drained and this morning I felt absolutely fine! My boobs hurt like mad all the time though and I'm pretty irritable as well hmm
