I have never been pregnant before (unless I am this month!), and I was just curious: When you get pregnant, does your stomach already feel hard around 4 weeks or so? Or can you not feel it because of the bloat? I've always wondered, and I feel like it would be a stupid question to ask to someone in person.

I feel bloated but your stomach won't get hard until your uterus grows. It will stay really low for the first couple months

My stomach is not hard. It's also not bloated or anything. I have no abdominal changes yet

I'm not really noticing anything yet either. I feel bloated at times but that could be just a natural thing not related to pregnancy. (or perhaps the Ben & Jerry's half baked ice cream catching up to me heehee)

This early you just get bloat. Your belly doesn't get 'hard' until there is more baby than belly in there.

I have nothing so far. I might be a tiny bit bloated, but not noticeable. My stomach didn't get hard until closer to 30+ weeks with my previous kids.

The abdominal changes don't happen until later in pregnancy. I just have bloat right now.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Just started feeling bloated today. Most people won't show until much later, unless you are REALLY skinny.

Thank you ~*Helen*~ for my BEAUTIFUL siggie!!!!
