Extreme bloating normal in early pregnancy?

Hi, I'm 5 weeks along on my first pregnancy.  When I found out last week, it made a little sense, I thought, because I was gaining a little weight and my pants were tight.  However, I started reading that you were supposed to lose, or gain little, in the first trimester.  So, could someone tell me why I can barely fit in my clothes?!  I've gained about 7 pounds, which is odd, because before I found out, I was dieting to try and stop the bloating.

I also had severe bloating and at times I still do (I'm 15 weeks pregnant). I love waking up most mornings to see that the bloating is gone! Unfortunately for some of us, it's one of those uncomfortable and unwanted symptoms in pregnancy.

Well, at least that gives me hope it will stop in time.
