  • If you are really tiny in the waist you can sometimes notice the uterus enlarging faster than others. Or you could be a little farther along then you think. Also if this is your second or third baby the uterus tends to move into place more quickly so that could be why.

    I started having issues with buttoning my pants at 7 weeks with my second and I actually lost 8 pounds the first trimester with him. Doctor felt my uterus and said it had already began moving up and out of the pubic area so that was why.

  • At 115 you are probably noticing the uterus enlarging. It happens very quickly in the first trimester. The uterus doubles in size very fast and continues from there.

    Bloating is a normal and common complaint in the first trimester that many women experience but in my experience bloating comes and goes...gets worse with meals, etc. but when it's the uterus and therefore the baby it tends to stick around no matter what.

  • Because you begin to retain fluid due to increased blood volume to your uterus. Your baby is the size of a grain of sand right now. Its not making your tummy big. Its a pregnancy symptom. Even if you had 2 in there still wouldnt be the actual baby making your stomach bigger.

  • Your fetus is the size of a strawberry..a small strawberry. It's water retention, you'll be fine.
