  • Sounds like the bloated stage. I hated that!!! Awkwardness of not really looking pregnant...

  • I got really big really fast with all my babies and was diagnosed Gestationally Diabetic with my last one, although my suspicion is that I had it with all of them (wasn't tested). My doctor just told me I had a lot of fluid. But it could be GD, so be very careful what you eat, especially watch those evil carbohydrates. Eat lots of fresh veges, some fruit, meat, etc, but if you crave bread, go with wholemeal wholegrain and eat it in moderation. Avoid sugar. And maybe ask your doctor if you should be tested for GD.

    Congratulations on the pregnancy and good luck!

  • I had gestational diabetes too and showed early. they didn't detect it until my third trimester. I ate a diet consisting of proteins, veggies, and very little starches (ei: breads, pastas). I also substituted regular sugar with Splenda.

    Like judimary said, this could be your situation too. follow up with your OB. best wishes!
