Hi! Congratulations on your pregnancy. I can say I am/was in the same boat you are. I am 16 weeks pregnant with baby # 2 and in the first few weeks I was huge. I didn't show with my son till I was almost 7 months, so I began to wonder why so early also. No worries though, you are just bloated! Around week 12 or 13, my bloating went away and now I have nothing. I have a teeny tiny little bump but nothing like it was. With the getting sick, not much I can help you with there. I've been throwing everything I put in my mouth back up since week 7, and have to take zofran just to be able to hold food down. Don't worry about gaining weight or being bigger, I promise it will go away in a few weeks. Just continue eating healthy and you will be just fine. Congrats again, and welcome :)
