22 weeks pregnant and feeling huge

I feel like my belly is stretched as far as it can go...although i know it will get worse

Did anyone else feel completely huge this early...Ive gained about 15 pounds so far, maybe less cuz my scale seems to be off and my doc says Im fine but I just feel like a blimp and only in my tummy area. the only swelling I have is in my toes so nothing else feels huge but my belly...

anyone else feel this big so early

  • Oh dear, when you hit the LAST few months you will beg to be 22 weeks again. You will look back and think "My belly was so small!"

  • OMG lol i know im already complaining about feeling big and I know it'll get worse...Im taking the negative approach by complaining so early but I saw some pics of my mom prego with me and it was not cute...i mean she was so huge, not in her body, but her belly was just ridiculous. I think Im scared after seeing that.

  • Lol I'm 37 weeks and I thought I was HUGE at 20 weeks. The baby is growing straight out, and I haven't gained a lot of weight (30 pds), but its ALL in front. I look now like I swallowed a beach ball! Everyone tells me that I'm not that big too, and I want to hit them lmao! Make sure to get out and walk and exercise daily. This is something I put off until late in the pregnancy and now am wishing I'd done more when I was smaller, bc it gets harder as the baby grows more! You're halfway there though, and even though it will get worse before it gets better, just remember that it will be well worth it!! :)
