Ok so basically a few days after I found out I was pregnant, I started to feel super 'bloated'. Which, I got with my other pregnancies to an extent, but this time it is different and worse. My lower abdomen is super sensitive. If I put on jeans, it instantly feels restricting and uncomfortable. Its not that the jeans are tight either. My stomach is super sensitive. Also, I am feeling crampy? It's not like period cramps, but I am not sure how to explain it. It feels like a dull ache. Sometimes slightly bordering on painful? And i am noticing it is the most noticeable when my bladder is full.
Has anyone else felt like this before. It feels like my last pregnancy, but just much more extreme I guess.
My husband keeps saying "twins!". Haha.

Not odd at all. That's one reason I chose to start wearing maternity clothing sooner then later with some of my pregnancies. I'm 6 week now and still able to wear jeans... but i'm thinking that will change in the next week. Comfort is a huge factor when your trying to stave off Morning sickness.

yep, same thing here. I am 6wks 5days and have been wearing a belly band with my jeans unbuckled for about a week. I wore mat jeans this morning and felt great!! I'm so much lower starting out this time.

I am still wearing my jeans but I have been a bit bloated, gassy and uncomfotable lately :(

Ok, so makes me feel better that this is "normal". I kept asking my other friends and they were laughing at me for wanting to wear maternity clothes or my bella band. I kind of feel silly for asking about it now. But man, it just had never been this extreme before!

That feeling gets a little worse with each pregnancy. It's your uterus gearing up for the big job ahead!
