Feeling of stomach first starting to get bigger....just curious

So I can tell I'm 'poking' out a little...just wondering if what I'm feeling is because of this!
It feels .. SORT OF like someone put a balloon in my belly and blew it up slightly! Is that it or just gas (haha!!)

Also -- either way--what does it feel like to you! (Weird question? Hope not.. :/ )

  • i felt full all the time when i first started showing, like i ate too much. but sometimes it was gas and would get better. but now im 4 months and feel really full but getting used to the feeling, you start to get out of breath too

  • Glad I'm not the only one feeling like an out of shape fatty. I mean, i'm not in great shape to begin with, but I feel like I've put on 50 pounds already and I'm only 21 weeks. If it feels like 50 now, I'm afraid of what I'll feel like at term. I only went to 30 weeks with my daughter. I bet I'll be a miserable slug.

  • i felt sooo yucky all the time and i was in shape and at a good weight when i got pregnant so i thought i was losing my mind but rest assured soon you will welcome all those yucky feelings because something so precious is making you feel that way. and dont let anyone ever tell you you're crazy or anything-sometimes women told me how i was feeling was nutty-but every pregnancy is different. when you get well into the second trimester you'll feel alot better, and then you hit the third trimester and feel yucky again. but again, if you think of the baby every time you really dont feel good it'll all seem worth it! :)
