Hi Everyone:


I'm just 6 weeks pregnant and have a question for y'all. Did or does anyone else have really bad bloating this early on?

Hi Lisa,

Yes, that has always been my first unpleasant symptom. Not even officially "showing", and the clothes don't fit right. *sigh*. The waist thickens, the you start to get round. I've hit round now at 13 weeks.

I was bloated straight away with this pregnancy, it was quite amazing. Now the bloating has gone (at 12 weeks) and has been replaced by a football protruding from high up on my stomach!

My stomach became bloated when I was about 4 weeks along, it is still that way. It seems more bloated at different times of the day.
