Hi everyone!
So... im pregnant again! After 7 miscarriages and one rainbow baby, this pregnancy is doing really well and i think its a stick! So lets say im just expecting my second baby!!! (9 weeks now)
So.. i never felt sick in any of my pregnancies, apart from my rainbow baby making me feel sick in the evenings, same as this baby! Im also feeling the only way i can describe it as 'disgusting' you know when you eat too much fatty foods (binge day/week, whatever?) your mouth seems to feel greasy, your stomach seems to feel like its full to the brim and any food you eat wont go down properly because you then dont feel hungry? Im feeling blaoted anyway but then on top i feel HUGE! As in fat huge! The top of my stomach just below my boobs has even swollen like id eaten way too much bread. Is it just me?? I hope not! 😩 xx

Thankyou in advance! Xxx

Despite losing 2.5 stone due to Hyperemesis and being 36 weeks pregnant I too feel huge as in fat huge and not pregnant huge. Only foods I could keep down in the first trimester were fatty foods and barely any fluids so yeah I get the greasy mouth feeling (still do when I have sausages) and the bloated feeling seems to have no cause for me. It has subsided as I've progressed though thankfully.

From weeks 6 - 13 I had the biggest bloated belly, which never went down even for a moment! It was constantly huge and I had to wear maternity jeans all the way through first trimester. I'm only a size 6 normally but I was wearing my husbands clothes (and he's a big guy!) and looked 7 months pregnant. The worst part was how uncomfortable I felt all the time, but I'm now 15 weeks and it's definitely much better.

My sickness was mainly evening as well. At it's worst, the nausea would start as early as 2pm and last for the rest of the day. I'd try to eat my biggest meal early on. I found that whatever I ate, the taste would linger in my mouth for hours which made me feel even worse. I found that keeping a stock of minty chewing gum really helped. x

Thankyou so much! Chewing gum is now in my shopping list!
Amazing how someone as tiny as you bloated that much! I could safely say its a sort of normal symptom then? Xx

Lots and lots of bloating through my first trimester. Eat little and often, and work out what goes down easiest. For me: salad, grapes, ice lollies and chicken soup.
