I am officially more bloated than I've ever been in my life. I feel huge, I feel like I'm showing, even though I'm not. It's annoying, and i'm really really glad that I have a pair of gaucho pants on. I generally speaking hate these things, but their comfortable, don't squeeze on my thighs, and so totally work as maternity pants.

Am I the only one who feels like their showing already? I"m 5w3d, btw.

I feel the same - like a big fat bloated pig!!!

I hate this stage (and why does it seem to last FOREVER)!!!!!

I am 5w too! I already feel like I am gaining a ton of weight - I am so P/O'd at my scale! I am doing a mommy & me swim class with ds and put my bathing suit on and :

Yeah, my enormous boobs aren't completely explaining my weight gain. I really feel like it's bloating, not actually that my uterus is big yet but like I'm gassy and retaining water. And though I don't have heartburn or real nausea, I'm burping like a fratboy, constantly. It's awful.

Me too! Sooooo bloated. Gassy too! Ugh. I was telling DH about it last night and he said that he'd rather me have awful gas than the headaches I suffered through during my last pregnancy. I hope the bloating goes away soon.
