    Hi ladies,
    Hope your all doing well : )
    Just wondered from others experience if anyone is feeling like me for this early stage

    I have a great deal of bloating it seems to progress through the day but it gets uncomfortable sometimes
    I also have alot more gas than normal and the last 2 mornings I have had tummy ache loose Bowles not sure if it's normal
    Not had any sickness yet (touch wood)
    Just wanted to see if anyone else has had anything like me?

    Thanks all xxx

    Hiya!

    I know all bout bloating and gas unfortunately... my belly is round like a big beach ball by the evening then deflated again by the morning! lol but touchwood I've not had any sickness either, I have heard though those lucky enough not to be sick like u and I can sometime have loose bowels... I have loose bowls for 3 day last week I just kept up my fluids and I was fine.

    keep hydrated you'll be fine x

    I had a major bloat on at around 5 weeks and I'm still gassy even now.
    The bloat died down at 6-7 weeks, then the sickness kicked in x

    Thanks puts my mind at ease x

    I was wondering what you think to the early scans that you can have and pay for anyone done one of these and think it puts your mind at ease? X

    they are a bit pricey I think £50 or so... tbh I think it's best to wait a little as if u have a very early scan u might not be able to see much.. but then again it's ur choice x

    I've been really bloated since about 3 weeks, even if i only eat a bag of crisps my tum swells up loads, really uncomfortable. My husband has asked me a couple of times if im sure I have my dates right as I look about 4 months pregnant!

    To be fair I'm not really struggling with food ATM (touch wood) but I find that light but healthy small meals are good if you really feel sick my sister in law just had some toast in a morning or Ginger biscuits she told me it does pass eventually but yeah it's like you said the main concern is getting your baby growing healthy maybe some of the ladies on here might have some better advice, I'm only just under 5 weeks so I'm sure that I still have all the fun and games to come yet with my pregnancy x
    Best of luck how far along are you?
    Hope your feeling better soon x

    Well I starved myself (literally) for 2 weeks between 7 weeks and 9 weeks and the doc said at that stage baby was getting all its nutrients from what my body had stored so not to worry.

    Now I'm eating again I can't really eat little and often, but I have at least 2 small meals a day. Normally toast for breakkie and super noodles later in the day, and a home made fruit smoothie at some point.

    I've been bloated ever since I found out! I ate like a pig at first, then started getting the sickness and not managing alot really. I tend to be able to eat more in the evening just before bed, as I usually throw up in the evening. When I've been sick (sorry if tmi) it makes me feel better long enough to eat without feeling nauseous so usually stuff my face in bed lol x

    Thanks a lot. I am 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant.The weirdest thing is that I don t get morning sickness I just have no appetite. There are certain foods I can eat and I take about 2 hours to decide what I wanna eat it s very hard because I end up being all dizzy and extremely tired. I hope I ll be alright soon.I ll try the toast and ginger biscuits. I try the veggies aswell hope i ll find something that I like to eat. Thanks again for your help. xxx

    No worries at all I'll be 5 weeks on Sunday and all I have is the bloating and tiredness I do feel like you sometimes that I just don't know what I want to eat and by the time I have decided I have gone past it : (
    Hope all goes well for you
    Best of luck
    Xx
