I'm about 6 and a half weeks pregnant and every day I'm just soooooooo bloated. I actually look about 12 weeks pregnant but just full off air.
Please tell me this will disappear at some point and be replaced by a lovely neat little bump??
Also, does anyone know if there is anything I can take or do to help with the bloating???

Yes, I had that around a similar time and I've read a lot of the other ladies say that have too!
Not sure what can help it though, but it will go down before you get a bump x

Totally normal I'm afraid and don't think there is much you can do about it, you will soon look back at pics and think how thin you looked!

I was so bloated I was really worried people would start guessing. It does go then the bump starts! Enjoy.

Very normal, I've found the last two weeks the bloating has gone but been replaced by a small bump

At 9 weeks I looked huge and probably the same size as I did at 20 weeks! It will disappear. After my bloating settled my tummy went rock solid before a bump appeared. X

Willow I did that at the weekend. I felt fat before I fell pregnant and now when I see the photos of pre or early pregnancy I think jeez I was a twig!! I'm thinking ill never ever be that small again and didnt appreciate it at the time. Now I'm a whale but worth it for this wee monkey :)

I've really been struggling with a bloated tummy, I'm 5 weeks pregnant and look 5 months. This is my first after our first round of ICSI (IVF) I'm struggling to hide it from people. I've been getting horrendous cramps too. Been given Gaviscon 3 times a day and only drinking mint tea, avoiding heavy carbs and greasy food which is easy because I've lost my appetite. x
