Is there anything to help bloating while pregnant..?

im almost 7weeks and friday morning when i was getting ready for school i had to change 10time because i was so bloated. i couldnt fit in any of my pants, shorts, or skirts. i had to wear a dress to school and i was late because it took me so long to find something to wear. so if theres anything, ill try it? i cant be late to school or start buying new clothes right now.

  • Sorry, the bellys only gonna get bigger. Wear some sweats maybe? But the only cure for pregnancy bloating is DELIVERING THE BABY! LOL :p

  • There's no cure for bloating. You can try eating less salt, but it's gonna happen and you're only going to get bigger. Maybe some friends have bigger pants you can borrow till you can buy some maternity clothes, but it's gonna be necessary. For now try wearing sweats.

  • You can try the rubber band around your pants button, through the button hole, and back around the button for a while but you will need new clothes in the next few weeks. Also, belly bands will help. They are about $15 at Target.

  • My clothes started getting snugger at 9 weeks! It can happen. Thankfully maternity clothes have ALOT of give so what you do get now should take you all the way to the end. Sweats and dresses with leggings can be good for now until you can get maternity clothes. Congratulations!!
