so here is another one of my body going pycho moments Iv been talking about lately and im not sure whether or not to be concerned. My stomach is swelling right now. I know you can get gassy and bloated and stuff but I don't really feel like that way I normally have butthurt if im all gassy TMI i know sorry. also I haven't really had anything but a slim jim for the last few hours (dont judge me slim jims are awsome). Anway back to the point my stomach has been getting visibly larger for the past hour and a half like a balloon getting blown up really slowly and its not my imagination because I just stood up to stretch my legs and my BF goes "good god your huge". *thanks for the confidence boost there buddy* anyway is this normal? I feel really stupid I mean I know my stomach shifts around every day pretty much since being pregnant but I dont thing its ever gotten this big this fast.

My thought would be either gas or the baby shifted more frontward. I think it is probably completely normal. As long as you are not having pain, then I would just continue to monitor it.

Thank you peimum for my siggy

I think there was a thread a few weeks ago about how everyone's belly looked bigger as the night progressed. I would guess it's just a combo of water retention, digestion, and baby position. I wouldn't worry about it unless it's causing you pain.
