Bloating

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

During pregnancy you have higher levels of progesterone, this hormone relaxes smooth muscle tissue throughout your body, including your gastrointestinal tract. This relaxation slows down your digestive processes, which can lead to gas, bloating, burping, and flatulence and generally create uncomfortable sensations in your abdomen, especially after a large meal.

Comparison Chart

The chart below shows a comparison between the number of times this symptom was experienced by pregnant vs non-pregnant women.


**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.

    Caused by progesterone. Which we pump out of the empty follicle left by the egg. Get some biology books guys.
