Omg this is me!!!

Can't believe how much bigger I am. I went on holiday a slim and toned size 10, got my bfp while away, have come home and when I got ready for first day back at work today nothing fit me!!! My bum and thighs have grown as well as boobs and tummy - how???!!!

I haven't been nauseous yet so have been exercising. I'm so hungry so have been trying to snack on healthy things. I'm hoping it's mostly bloat and water retention so I've also been trying to drink lots. I'm 6+2. Argh I so hope this levels out...

Yeah, it's usually just bloat at this point and you'll find you'll deflate at some point and then feel a bit more normal until your actual bump pops.

I normally bloat at the time of the month but this is crazy. I easily look 4 months pregnant with a proper bump. It's hard to hide!

Your body is busy making extra blood, extra fluid for your waters, etc etc. You're not getting fat as in overeating and putting on fat stores, you're pregnant. You will be "a whale" when you're 40 weeks pregnant, it kind of comes with the territory, but of course it will all go again when you give birth.
