Hi, i have just found out 2 weeks ago that i'm pregnant. My test showed i was 5 weeks, and i recently just been for a scan and was showing a black shadow in the uterus but unable to rule out being eptopic at this stage because they could not see anything? I'm going back in another week for a scan but concerned because i look about 5 months pregnant i am really bloated and even had to invest in some maternity trousers for work. Is this normal?

If You are five week's pregnant nothing would be seeing bub at this stage, I did not see bub until I was 10 week's and before that it was a suspected blighted ovum. Bloating is common in pregnancy, I know when I was earlier I was convinced I was either further or carrying twin's because I felt so bloated

I was bloated that early as well, I have to wear a bella band over my jeans.

I was also bloated really badly and while my stomach didn't look huge everything else did. Also remember. It might seem like a lot to you, but to others it might seem like nothing.
