It could be, I know though that I can't have my pants up anywhere under my belly button. I think it's after you eat that you become bloated or something. Don't wear high waisted pants when you know that you'll be eating a lot. Maybe your pants are too tight. If they're brand new, it's normal. The waistband hasn't had time to stretch out.
