I always feel like I ate a horse recently. I'm so full of STINKY FARTS. My gut is distended. I feel so mis-shapen and fat.<br><br>
This baby was a surprise. I had begun running for the first time in my life and I was cutting out the extra junk. No diet, just trying to eat less (not as much as dh!). Had dropped 4 pounds then whammo!!<br>
I'm not over weight but I sure feel that way.<br>
I'm never one to care about how much weight I gain. It comes off eventually. I just HATE the bloated, don't look pg, just feel thick stage.<br><br>
Oh and did I mention the stinky farts?

I lost 40 pounds last year. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I also started running and never thought I would like it so much. I did my first 5K over St. Patty's Day weekend.<br><br>
YES! I am feeling so bloated! I gained a few pounds but I have not been able to get to the gym I am just so fatigued and or sick or have a headache all the time.<br><br>

I feel your pain! Now, I'm normally a girl who bloats anyways (I eat a heck of a lot of fiber), but never anything like this. I feel like I'm going to explode, I can't even bend over. And gas too, PHEW!!!<br><br>
I'm glad to know this seems to be a normal symptom and I'm not just crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I have been bloated too! Kinda yucky bloated, not like ate a ton of beans bloated. The gas is stuck in me I guess, ewww. I eat, get super bloated for about an hour or two, then I'm starving again. But feel so sick I hate to eat. Vicious circle!

Congrats on the 40lbs! What a great way to start a pregnancy! My 4lbs pretty much took care of the last few pounds from the last baby. My goal was 6 more and I'd have been at high school weight...what a fanatasy *rolls eyes*

I'm with you ladies!!<br><br>
I had DD in 2007, and after her birth, I lost 67lbs. Well....then I gained 17 lbs back since last May! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I am so bummed about that. I had a m/c in Jan...and that is where 10 lbs came in. I would have felt fine gaining 10 lbs in a year..that's not THAT big of a deal..but almost 20? Ugh.<br><br>
I so didn't want to start this pregnancy this "big". I guess technically I'm slightly overweight now..but not by much. It's not like I'm gonna starve myself or anything....I'm just irritated. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
It'll be interesting to see how things pan out. With DD..I got so sick from 8 weeks past 20 that I LOST 14 lbs. Then I gained 14 lbs back..and then another 14lbs and that's what I was when I gave birth.<br><br>
I guess if I can just keep my junk food craving away and just eat loads of healthy stuff I won't feel so bad! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was looking at my belly in the mirror yesterday, after a meal, and was amazed at how fat and distended it was! I haven't gained any weight but the bloating is insane.

Uh, yeah. Bloated. Gassy. Pregnancy is just one unpleasant digestive issue after another. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Really, though, I hate this stage - just look like I've gained weight (though I haven't - too sick to eat), pants don't fit, don't look pregnant. *sigh*
