I am 8 wks pregnant with twins and I've been REALLY bloated since about 5 weeks. I have had extreme nausea and stomach upset since about then, too. I am battling constipation and trying to sneak Benefiber into everything I eat or drink. I think my nausea/stomach upset is a combination of m/s and constipation. I'm a Prometrium so that is not helping anything.
When do you go to the dr. for your first appt? I had a m/c last time so my dr. scheduled an ultrasound as soon as the heartbeat would be detectable (6 1/2 weeks). We found out then we were having twins, which explains why my m/s has been so bad and why I was already pooching out. I'd call your dr. and ask about all that and just see what they say.
i am having twins. my belly bloated with them. it was hard at the top and poofed out. that's just bloating, which is a part of pregnancy. even with twins(like myself) they are still in your pelvis so early on.
now that i am about 5 months along my belly is about the same size. lol. but now it's actually babies.
Thanks for your reply...congrats on twins!!! Do you have other children?
I go next week at 7w3d for US and first prenatal. I wanted to push it off b/c I had an early US last time (7w2d) that showed 6w2d and a heartbeat. Went back the next week for f/u and there was no hb...
But, I couldn't get in with my doc again until I was about 10 1/2 weeks which was too long, so I'm going next week. Wasn't going to have the US then either, but realize at this point that there is really nothing I can do to change the outcome, so no use burying my head in the sand.
But I am huge...I guess we'll see next week. I as hoping to "hide" for a few more weeks at least, but I really can't "suck it in." :)
Thanks again for your reply -- let me know how you're doing. Best of luck and hope you feel better soon.
Hi there. Congratulations to you. I am 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow. Since about week 5, I looked probably 4 months pregnant. Then, all of a sudden this week, I am not nearly as bloated. I put it together that last week, I stopped taking progesterone injections, which I think was adding to the bloating effect. I don't feel nearly as big as I did..... The funny part is, it wasn't just my stomach that was bloated, my whole body was bloated, especially my face! I had started to wear maternity clothes already just because I was so uncomfortable in my regular clothes. So, I feel much better this week about the whole pregnancy weight gain thing!
I am not on anything except prenatal vitamins...but do feel really bloated and uncomfortable.
I haven't really gained any weight, and I'm not particularly worried about it. I gained over 40 with my first and about 30 with my second and managed to take it all off (or at least most).
I really wanted to keep quiet until after I was out of the first trimester -- mostly b/c it was so hard dealing with everyone after my MC last fall that I really didn't want to go through that again. I'm just so big that I'm pretty sure someone is going to ask me -- my family knows, but I have held off telling anyone else.
Anyway, I see my doc next week and hopefully everything will be good...
I have a ds who is almost 4, so I'm sure my abs aren't as tight as they once were...lol! I was so bloated at 5 weeks that my dh even made a comment like "I didn't think you were supposed to show this early". I was a little ticked at him for saying it but when I found out it was twins, he said "Well, that's why you are showing".
I admire that you wanted to wait for the u/s but I couldn't stand it. As for me personally, I would rather know if something was wrong so that I didn't get any more excited about it. But that's just me. Even though we saw 2 strong heartbeats at the last u/s, I am still extremely nervous. I go in on Wednesday for my 2nd u/s (8w2d). I'm seeing an RE so if the babies are okay, I'm off to regular ob/gyn next week. They told me at my last appt that since we saw the heartbeats and they were great (>120 bpm), that there's a 95% chance everything will be okay.
Wishing you lots of luck! I'm sure everything will be fine! I hope your bloatedness (not sure that's a word) goes away soon!
