This is my first pregnancy, so i'm not sure how normal this is but i'm so constipated and bloated that my pants barely button. Everything I read says I shouldn't gain any weight for at least another month or 2, but i already look like i'm showing (even though its all bloat.) Does this go away at any point ? I'm on the smaller side so each pound looks like a lot on me... and i've gained 4 pounds (from 111 to 115.)Trust me, bring on the baby weight... but I dont wana walk around with poop weight hahah Is anyone else going through this
The week I got my bfp I was SO bloated and my weight went up by about 4lbs. The past two days it has dropped 2lbs. Over the next few weeks with m/s I'll be doing good if I don't end up lower than my starting weight (I have lost up to 5lbs in the first trimester) and then I usually only gain a few lbs the first half of the pregnancy. Just about the time the Dr gets concerned about my lack of weight gain I take a big jump between 20-24 weeks and then it adds gradually every week from there. I gain right between 20-25 with each pregnancy.
