I was bloated probably for my first twelve weeks of pregnancy. I had very bad gas in the first trimester haha you might only be a couple weeks along, try taking another test in another week. If that comes up negative but you still have symptoms go to your doctors office and get a blood test. Good luck =)

Try taking another test in a few days.  It could've been too early. Good luck!!!

Hi RenneM and mhv,

Thanks for your insights,,is bloating really a sign of pregnancy? Im diagnosed with hormonal balance, in my 39 yrs i didnt experience regular menstruation ,,and 17 yrs of no menses at all unless ill take provera just to induced menses,,thats why,,i didnt know if im pregnant or what coz i dont have menses,,,,,i have done many infertility treatments because all my repro endo told me that i didnt ovulating in my own,,because i have fewer eggs,,and no one will tell when they will mature,,,,all my efforts doing the treatments sad to say results to negatives,,,its been 6 yrs now that ive stopped all the check ups,,,,

Its only now in my 39 yrs that i gained this 3 kls weight in a matter of weeks,,i just noticed that my lower abdomen is still bulging even if my stomach is flat,,thats why i did zumba dance for 2 weeks now,,,lol!

But since we have sexual contacts last month with my hbqnd thats why i come to think that i maybe pregnant(wishing),,,

Actually we have adopted daughter ,,she is 4 yrs now,,when we stoped my fertility work up,,someone came to us and gave her newborn baby girl,,so we had bimby an hour after she was born,,and now she is very adorable, bubbly little girl,,,thank God for her!

Thanks so much for sharoing your thoughts,
