Did Your Pregnant Belly Get Bigger by the End of the Day?

Does a stomach really grow this fast? More than halfway through my third pregnancy, I'm noticing something I didn't while expecting my daughter and son —belly expansion by the hour! The other day I woke up barely looking like I was with child, but by the time I went to bed — it seemed like I was nine months along. This continues to happen on a daily basis and other mamas have told me they experienced the same thing whether it is due to food, beverage, water retention or the impending babe's movements. Did you notice this daily stretch?

It's amazing how huge I look at the end of the day. I'm at 15 weeks and I can look barely pregnant in the morning and so big at night! :)

I thought that it was just my mind, so I'm glad other people are having this happen to them too.

I loved wearing anything with a midline (i.e. zip-up sweatshirts) as she would lay completely on one side. Lop-sided pregnancies rock!

Between 13-16 weeks it did it more, now it doesn't seem to as much. I would eat a big meal and instantly look much larger.

no, but i had a friend that went on a business trip and took only one suit; one she had worn a few days before. when she went to put on the suit she couldn't get the waist band closed by about 4 inches. she ended up wearing the pants she wore on her flight with the suit jacket/blouse. and that was her first pregnancy.
