    Anybody else got this? I'm normally a good size 10 and now jeans wont do up and I resemble some who's 5 months pregnant! As much as I love having a little poppy seed growing, it's hard keeping the pregnancy quiet!

    Meeeeeeee! I'm horrible bloated that it's almost obvious! My dad and sister keep calling me "fatty" as a joke of course as they know I'm pregnant :lol:

    I'm outgrowing my jeans and shorts and even some of my leggings! xxx

    It just feels too early to buy maternity things, I only found out a week ago!
    Water retention is clearly bad!

    I'm 8

    Trick is to look at tickers lol - that's what I do all the time

    I'm hoping to stay a 10 as long as I can - tops are ok it's just trousers :(

    I'm really bloated to. Plus I go on holiday on Saturday so I will look like a bit of a blob! I'm usually a size 10-12.

    Hey Raerae,

    This is totally normal, annoying with the clothes but normal. I was majorly bloated from about weeks 4 to 7 and then one day I woke up and I wasn't any more! Now at 11 weeks I get bloating from time to time. When I'm whale-like I just go for leggins and a dress and avoid jeans at all costs!! I've just ordered some maternity leggins actually because mine cut in a little now, I was going to go a size up bit figured I'd have the same problem again soon anyways.

    Drink plenty of water and eat small amounts often is all I can say. It'll pass :)

    xx

    I wore a dress for a funeral approx 3 weeks ago and wore the same one today...my auntie commented on my weight gain since then! I'm usually curvy anyways so people do think its a weight thing which is good on one hand but also annoying!

    I'm Still just about a 10 in most things, had to go up a back size in bras though and buy bigger knickers. It's fluctuating though so some days are better than others!
