My last pregancy ended in a m/c and now I do not know what is normal and what is not. Most of the time my stomach feels just fine. But sometimes it feels as if it is really ful even though I have not eaten anything. Is that normal? I know that the bloating part of it is but I never experienced that in my last pregancy. It doesn't excatly hurt it is just really uncomfortable.

First rule is everything is "normal". I personally never felt full, I always feel more emtpy. But every single person is so different....

I'm quickly finding out that there is no normal anything. But I too feel full all of the time, but have no sickness.

I'm a big eater...especially of munchies, but now I could care less about food.

I get that "full" feeling in the evening around bedtime. Sometimes I also feel bloated.

I feel full, too. Unfortunately, that doesn't stop me from eating. In fact, I'm finding I'm eating lots of high calorie foods, maybe because they take up less space? My mw says the "full" sensation is a result of my intestines being more sluggish. This causes more air in them and they're pushing up on my stomach.

I'm another person with that full feeling. I have to make myself eat sometimes just make sure I'm getting in some food. I guess that is a good thing though-since I prefer that morning sickness

Its normal to eat like and tiger and its also normal to pick like a bird- so take your pick and go w it.

But you should "feel" different. Its just something there. Or you might be one of those women who pregncy dosen't phase much. In that case- wait at least 12 weeks before telling people.

I am one of those women who its as obvious as the nose on my face that I'm expecting. Not to mention the acne, tired sluggishness, nausah, you name it plus I am showing already at 9 weeks.

Hang in there and just take each day.
