I'm now only in my 5th week, but my tummy looks like 3 or 4mth pregnant, but I didn't gain much weight, about 0.3 kg only .. is this normal?? how come so big???
you can just wear dress and then a cardigan, it will hide your belly. it wun get bigger as of now, i am almost week 8 but still same bloated. i think it will only get bigger after 1st tri, by then you can announce already.
if you wore shorts, pants of mini skirts that needs to button, but yet you cannot button it anymore, get the belly band, i just got it and is so useful.
1 of the mummies here also bought it.
Ingrid & Isabel
you can get it at maternity exchange @ marina square, level 3, near all the babies/mother care section
can try the band also, they have sample to try on
There are some clothing that can masked early pregnancy easily. For example go to The House of AnA Look at Boadicea, Anita, and Bree. They should be able to hide the small precious easily.
But I think, we should all show it off I remember went I first found out about my pregnancy at about 5 weeks (I had irregular period). Was soo happy and can't wait to tell the world
My mom told me to avoid cold drinks when I was pregnant, she said cold drinks add a lot of water weight to pregnancy, out of her old traditional wisdom. Now to think of it, it is how our body response in protecting the precious one. If we often drink cold drinks, the baby inside our tummy will get a lot of temperature fluctuation. So our body responded by increasing the amount of amniotic fluid to shield the baby from frequent temperature variation. That's how amazing God is. His creation is flawless.
Help! How to get rid of water retention? Am in my 6 weeks. My tummy also big but these few days i realized my ankle is swollen n my face also look fat. Am supposed is the water retention but i thought this symptons only come during third trimester? Only few weeks y do i have water retention so early? Does anyone have the same problem as me during first trimester?
probably cut down salt intake?
Ya. I read about low salt intake and drink alot of water to flush the extra fluid out. i just cant stop worrying if this is normal during first trimester. Never really heard someone have such problems before. Sigh...i just have to wait and see if it will get better. Thanks!
Sigh, I'm 8 weeks pregnant but my tummy look 5 mths due to my first pregnancy! Omg! Even if I want to keep a secret till first trim over also cannot! Anyone gt 'remedy'? (
