I am still early in my pregnancy and we decided not to mention to work and our families until my first ultrasound on Nov. 5.  People at work keep asking me why I eat so much at lunch now and that I need to start working out again because im getting a little pooch.  I know its bloating bc im too early to have a bump but its so hard not to say anything.  My clothes already fit more snug because of this.  I starve all day and get sick at night.  Anyone else?

Just tell them your on a new diet and its back firing lol. When I was pregnant I was never hungry and always sick until I hit 17 weeks then I started getting my appetite back and the sickness started going away, by the time I was 25 weeks I was always hungry and everyday I craved pizza:)

Thanks ladies ;)  That makes me feel better!! I know some people are so rude, they will probably feel bad when they find out why.  This will be my 2nd child and I have heard you get big a little faster with the 2nd child and bloated but my son is almost 6 so I have forgotten a lot of this
