Feeling Your Weight Gain in Early Pregnancy
Even though you don’t yet “show,” you may begin to feel larger in the waist this month. It’s normal to feel larger before you begin to look larger; while your uterus is only slightly bigger, your abdomen may be somewhat distended because of bloated bowels and a slight weight gain in early pregnancy. As your waistband tightens, you will need to make adjustments in both your clothing and in your attitude toward your body. This is the first step in coming to terms with your pregnant body image.
