Patient :I don't usually eat breakfast but I have been for most of this week. Just small things. I also eat very small lunches when I do eat, and usually have a sandwich as an afternoon snack. Sometimes I have light dinners or none, but I think most times I eat as much as most people. This week, it's been a little harder for me to suck my stomach in, and it looks noticeably bigger than last week. My mother also told me that my face looked fatter today than usual. She also asked if it was swollen. When I let my stomach go, I look about 4 months pregnant. I am completely abstinent, and as I said, I don't eat much. Why is my stomach so large? Last week it was nearly flat. I am afraid someone will accuse me of being pregnant.
