I am 6w3d pregnant.
I currently look 6m3w pregnant. (6 months, 3 weeks.)
I am quite, er, “well-endowed”. I’m so bloated that my stomach is sticking out beyond my boobs. I keep trying to go to the bathroom, and it takes 20 minutes to pop out a raisinette. 😛 My tummy is gurgling from gas. It hurts. The nausea is actually being caused, I think, by the backed-up-ness.
I’m supposed to go to a wedding reception with my husband on Saturday. No one knows that I’m pregnant (save for my best friend, but she lives in a different country, so it’s not like she’s going to tell anyone). My husband doesn’t want anyone to know until I’m 8 weeks.
I really, really, REALLY need to not look pregnant in my cute little summer dress.
Does anyone have any magic, yet safe, cures for bloating to the point of blimping?
Originally published on July 30, 2009. In the end, there was no cure for my bloating… I just drank a lot of water and sucked in my belly a lot. Constipation was an ongoing issue throughout my pregnancy. Suppositories helped when it was really awful. And our little secret was kept until we were ready for the world to know. That pregnancy is now a nearly four year old boy named Norton.
