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

Don't worry that goes away next week. What time of day are you taking your vitamins? If your not already doing so take the at night and be sure to drink LOTS and LOTS of water!

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.
