  • Yeah. My second preg. was like that. I actually had little/no stomach when I got up Feb.9 and you could seriously tell I was preg. by the end of my shift that night. The rest of the preg. went the same way (dd born May 27).
    What's funny is my dd's tummy does the same thing, she's much thinner when she wakes up and her belly grows during the day. (she's 4).
    Not sure why that happens.

  • It's normal to have changes in bloating level during the day making it look differently.

    ...and getting more bloating after you eat is normal.

  • it's normal. depends on how baby is laying, if baby is curled up into a ball than you're gonna pop more, if s/he's stretching out you'll be flatter. at 15 weeks you don't have much a big baby in there so it depends on what you eat/drink and bloating. i'd wake up looking like i did before pregnancy and at bedtime i'd have a little beach ball in my tummy. husband was way confused.
    don't worry about the size of your bump, it's always perfect.

  • This is exactly what happened to me. I believe that it is just bloating. It might also have something to do w/ the way that the baby is positioned.
