Does your belly grow as the day wears on?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if this is just me....does your belly get bigger and bigger as the day goes on? When I wake up I have a bump but by the end of the day it is considerably larger than when I first woke up in the morning. I presume this is from eating throughout the day. Anyway, I'll feel really weird if this doesn't happen to anybody else!

yeah it happens to me too ... I just assumed it was eating and um... poo!!! sorry to be graphic!

Yes, that happens to me all the time! I wondered if it did to anyone else. I wake up not even feeling pregnant, but by the evening I'm practically waddling, hardly able to bend over to tie my own shoes or pick up something I dropped (which I keep doing, too). This has been going on for months now. In fact just up until a few weeks ago I could still wear my pre-pregnancy clothes most of the day, but at night I had to change. I have no idea what it is, maybe zek_grrl is right but I thought more likely water retention? Weird.

in my case I know it is the food...

I had two pieces of lasagna for dinner and I look like I time-travelled two months into the future!

I know it's the food and not water retention
The more I eat, the bigger I get. People even comment on it at work!!

Yup. Doesn't seem to be too food related. I keep laughing and saying that all my organs which settled towards my spine overnight just take the day to fall forward. Seriously though, I think it's mostly just water.

No - it is still just flubber blubber

Oh, mine definitely does! I'm a ton bigger in the evenings than when I first wake up.

Yup This is true for me even when I'm not pregnant.

I wonder; just how much gas do we expel at night??

It happens to me at night too. In the morning my stomach still feels a little squishy and at night it is as hard as a rock and looks HUGE.

Yes!! My belly does seem bigger at the end of the day and it feels bigger too. It feels really tight like its going to burst open!

No it depends on how much I eat.
It also depends if I relax my stomach muscles. It really grows then

That's why I used to weigh myself only in the mornings.

Mine is definitly bigger at night too. I am always amazed at how much it grows during the day

My belly "grows" over the day too (or my pants shrink...you pay your money you take your choice).

I know from pre-baby that I tend to weigh about 3-4 pounds more in the evening than I do first thing in the morning (this is pretty common) so I figured that the extra water/food/gas/etc that comes with being a baby carrier was just making this more obvious.

Mine does too!!! I look pregnant and I just don't get it, no pain or discomfort aside from the feeling of being stretched.
