some days my belly feels soft and smaller,whilst others is quite hard and rounded-sometimes its like im fat and not preg whilst others its obiouse i am,it this normal at 17 weeks,anyone else experienced this?


Beth - March 10

I am experiencing the same thing!!


citrouille - March 10

me too and I'm only at 11 weeks. I get big, then it goes down..then it comes back.. I had a thought that it might partly be my intestines and whatever else reacting to being pushed around by my growing uterus.. does that sound logical?

I was just thinking that! I am 18 weeks. This morning before I got up it was hard and round, now it's smooshy and looks like a big fat roll! Usually at night it seems harder.


chelsea - March 10

In the morning I am flatter, than throughout the day my stomach expands to the max, than it starts all over again the next day, I'm only 15 weeks

have been having belly fluctuations since first trimester. Some days it was bigger, others smaller, also it is usually smaller in mornings. I started to look pregnant at 18 weeks (or so I thought, but when I look back on the 18 week pics of my belly, it looks so small compared to what it is now!...still I would stil stay I started showing, if only a little, at 18 weeks) I am 24 weeks now. Sometimes belly is really hard, other times softer.

thanks for answering i've been wondering about the same thing.

I must be normal because of all these similar stories...I was just thinking the same thing myself. I wonder why it does this. When I wake up my belly is smaller, by the end of the day, it's a lot bigger. This is a daily thing for me and I'm 17 weeks.

yep.. very normal... at night I pop and look very 6 months pregnant. in the morning I just look fat....

Might have to do with your stomach, at the end of a day of eating and drinking liquids your stomach is more full, therefore pushing the baby out more? At least that is what I have heard. Who knows but nice to know we all are feeling it.


Serena - March 16

Kelly, I agree with you. I think it's all the eating and drinking fluids during the day. I am also about 2 pounds lighter in the morning after I pee than at night. All that liquid from the day before is gone and we start another day of eating and drinking. I'm 15 weeks pregnant but I've already gained 4-5 pounds. I had no morning sickness. My tummy is definitely showing but so far I've been wearing loose clothing and no one can tell. Only a few I've told know that I'm pregnant.

Well, I'm due Aug. 31st, and was not showing until 15.5 weeks, I woke up one morning and BOOM I had a big ol' belly! Now there is NO guessing about it, and I'm really glad I went out and bought the maternity clothes I bought last weekend, thinking I would not need them for at least a few more weeks! My belly seems harder first thing in the morning, and then later at night, but it NEVER goes away anymore.


chelsea - March 18

its good to hear all of this,thanks!

I'm only 15 weeks but I have experienced that. Somedays I need the maternity clothes, other days my bigger sized normal clothes work fine. I think alot of it has to do with being ga__sy and the size of my bladder. Some days I feel hard and round and tight and other days I feel soft and flabby and not round at all. It is weird. I've had 2 us though and all is well. I'm blaming it on gas! :)
