View Full Version : bloating belling
Do any of you experience a bloated sensation like you are pregnant looking and feel full in the belly/abdomen?
What causes this? As my IC gets worse I get more fuller -- what do we do for this?

it's called the "IC Belly" I have it. I'm 25, never had children, I only weigh 90lbs but I look 5 months pregnant. I believe it may be caused by the swollen bladder and surrounding areas that swell up as well due to the IC.

Me too! I call it the Buddha belly and no matter how many crunches I do, its there.
I think many Icers have this.
Too bad we dont all live in the same town, then we would look normal!! :)
I have it too. I thought it was post-menopausal spread. Never, Never, look at your profile in a mirror.

I get really bloated when the pain is flaring up. All of a sudden, the pain starts and my belly looks huge! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.
