Help please if you are experiencing the same!
This is my 4th pregnancy. In all my pregnancies, I have looked ridicilously swollen on the upper abdomen, right under my boobs and above my belly button my stomach is hard and swollen, it is like I have a football there. But I look ridicilous, when my actually baby bump is in my lower abdomen. I am now 18wks and feeling depressed due to this. This pregnancy it seems to be worse. In the morning, I kinda look ok like I should at this stage, but as soon as I eat or drink something, the upper abdomen swells and I look like I was 8mnts along.
I have mildyl suffered this when not pregnant too, as long as I can remember, but then it seems to be that it is sugar and carbs that swell my abdomen.
The last 4 weeks, my weight has shot up too, 4kg in 4 weeks, seems like I cant control it. I was normal weight prior.
When surfing the net, I came accross something that it may be caused my yeast growth in my gut.
Has anyone experienced similar? Have you gotten help? I am feeling a bit stupid if I mention it to my dr. Im considering should I try east free+carb free diet.
