Hello everyone

So I am 13+4 with my first baby, we have had 4 miscarriages prior to this baby however I feel ginormous! I'm sure I look bigger than I should! We had a reassurance scan at 6 weeks which showed a heart beat. We have our dating scan next Wednesday...... could there be more than 1 in there?

Does anybody have any experience of this?

Thank you xxx

I feel huge but it's all just bloating and constipation at the moment grin

I'm exactly the same! Apparently your digestive system slows down in the 1st trimester, causing bloating etc. My stomach is huge from the bloating, cant wait for it to ease off!

It is almost definitely bloating as your uterus will still be right down under your pubic bone but you never know!

I was showing at my 12/13 week scan. I have a very small frame. Size 6 and 5ft 6. So as soon as I found out I was pregnant I showed right away. Think a lot is bloating too.

I'm 13 weeks too with second baby, I've already had to give in to maternity clothes as I'm so bloated with an obvious 'bump' I just couldn't cope being uncomfortable in normal clothes anymore. Although the baby is still tiny and you do bloat alot everyone carries differently

Thank you ladies! Just trying to get to the scan on Wednesday now! I'm so so worried x
