Apologies if this is a really obvious question. I'm 9 weeks into my first pregnancy and have just spent the last 2 days in bed feeling exhausted and nauseous :-( Am starting to think that I'm making it all up as I've never felt this unenergetic before!
Anyhow, I'm currently away from the UK and family and friends who don't know that I'm pregnant as we're not going to tell them until we get back. As such I don't have any really close friends near by to chat stuff through with so thought I'd try and make some friends on-line.
I've been reading through the different forums and I don't understand what DS stands for? I'm sure that it's really obvious but I've thinking about it all day and it's driving me mad now! Thanks in advance.
Wow, thanks for the speedy response. And D'oh, do I feel silly for not getting it earlier.
These first few weeks are rubbish aren't they. I understand that baby and placenta and amniotic fluid etc are all the size of a hen's egg at present, so how on earth can something so small make me feel so rubbish!
Okay, next question: I'm already feeling that my jeans and things are tight around my waist, now I know I've only put on a pound and they're fine around my hips. Which is odd as I'm a decidedly pear shape so anything extra usually goes straight onto my hips. Baby, as above, is tiny so what on earth is going on????
What you are feeling is VERY normal, this is my 3rd Pregnancy and it has happened with all 3 in varying amounts. Don't panic or worry its all normal
These guys on here are brilliant, just ask away and you will get answers or support if needed.

I started getting a bloaty belly and feeling uncomfortable in tight trousers really early in my last pregnancy - I had to wear my trousers "extended" with an elastic band from well before 12 weeks. Am now starting to get this again (though not quite to the elastic band stage yet), but I'm still only at 6 weeks!
