Hi, Im new !

Hubby and I have just found out we are pregnant for first time and we are very excited ! Very Happy

Im feeling extremely bloated and my stomach is very round all of a sudden, even though I believe I am only 5 weeks.

Is this normal, I feel like Ive eaten a five course meal and Ive felt like this for about 3 days now !!! Shocked

Hi, even though your baby will be very tiny for a long time your uterus will grow to accomodate the placenta, amniotic fluid etc. Plus with hormonal changes anything can happen!! I'm 12weeks 5 days with my third baby and I've already gone up 2 clothes sizes just on the waist, the rest of me is the same size.

Good luck with everything.

Hi hun, welcome to JP, i hope you enjoy it here. I am Mandy, mum to Lauren almost 3, and Jake 11mths. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
In answer tou your question i think everyone has differing early pregnancy symptoms but yours certainly isn't uncommon. I was the same with both of mine. Everybody kept telling me that they were starving when they were expecting but i always felt full up in the first few weeks. I felt that i had eaten enough for a family of 4! haha. It did eventually ease though. Fingers crossed you don't get too many other early pregnancy symptoms that make you feel pants. still even of you do at least you can console yourself with knowing you have a great reason for feeling a bit off colour for a few weeks! Hug Xx

I agree i always felt full at the beginning of both my pregnancies - had to force myself to eat! LOL. Everybody has different symptoms in pregnancy but yours are very common!

Hi and thanks for your replies, I feel better knowing its not just me! No doubt I will talk myself into allsorts over the coming weeks so forgive me if I post ridiculous questions!! Very Happy

Im ill at the moment with this horrible cold and cough thats working its way around, seemed to avoid it for weeks at work then got it just before I found out about pregnancy, friends are saying its because my immune system will have lowered to protect the baby but i dont know? All I know is Im sick of coughing and my ears are aching like hell Sad

Hello and congratulations! I am Louise and I am 24 weeks pregnant with my 3rd little one- my son James is 12 3 weeks before the baby is due and my daughter Gemma will be 6 next August. This is my fiance's first baby, we weren't able to find out if we are having a boy or girl but are happy to have the surprise! Baby

I was quite bloated at the start too and was wearing next size up jeans and tracksuit bottoms/joggers by 6 weeks! Hope you get over your cold soon. Hug
