8 Weeks pregnant

Tomorrow I'll be 8 Weeks with my first baby and I feel like my abdomen and stomach is getting bigger...I still weigh the same but I'm gaining inches..would this just be from not during anymore and maybe some bloating? Should I be worried?

Hi and thanks for using the forum

Congratulations on your pregnancy!  Generally, especially with your first pregnancy, you don't gain weight right away.   Often, you will start to "lose your waist" first and then you will start to gain some weight.   This is totally normal and to be expected.  If you have not scheduled your first prenatal appointment, it would be a good time to do so.  Prenatal care is so important.  Be sure to write down any questions that you have and bring them with you to your appointment.  Best of luck!
