Feeling Bloated as a Symptom

Yes, bloating can be a symptom of pregnancy.

Here is advice and input from others:

  • I have a situation similar to yours. I have started what I think is my period. I spotted yesterday and then during the evening yesterday it progressed to more of a period. It still is not the normal color my periods are. Anyway, I have been feeling very bloated. You could still be pregnant. Every woman's body is different. That's why it's so frustrating to look online and read one article that says you cannot have your period while pregnant, than another that says you can "spot" while pregnant, and THEN another that says you CAN have your period and still be pregnant. Pregnancy varies with every woman. I hope if you wish to be pregnant, you are. :)
  • Yes. I am 16 dpo and I have been bloated since 9 dpo.
  • During my first couple weeks of pregnancy i was feeling really bloated and really full after i would eat a meal. that is not like me at all! but now that i am in my 2nd month, i love eating food but i have to watch out for my baby. every once in a blue moon i feel after eating food, but it is usually something that doesnt agree with my stomach.
  • Bloating was my first sign and it came really early on. I noticed when I layed on my stomach... I felt a pooch. Also my jeans obviously fit tighter too.
  • Yes! It is definitely a symptom! During my last pregnancy that was the sign that convinced me I was pregnant (before my period was due, before I took a pregnancy test). It started before my period was due and lasted several months! Because of all the bloating I looked 5 months pregnant from the beginning! :)
  • * I'm on what i think, is my period. It isn't a normal period, I'm not bleeding much, and it isn't the normal color. I also have very bad bloating! sorry TMI lol. I also have horrible diarrea and have been getting lightheaded out of nowhere. i read on the Internet that that's a sign too? but not sure what to think, help me out?

Yes not extremely early but after a few weeks most women are more bloated and gassy

That would have nothing to do with early pregnancy signs, that sounds like you have strepped throat.

Sometimes. If you have missed a period you may be pregnant. Take a test
