In brief: Hard to say
Initially you feel bloated because of the Progesterone rising with pregnancy, which slows the bowels down.
As you get further along, the sheer size of the uterus cause pressure on the bowels causing bloating.

In brief: That depends
Depending on what causes the bloating, will answer the question as to when it will get better. If due to pregnancy/hormonal changes for example, then when you deliver and/or your hormonal issues are resolved, this may help the bloating.
If the bloating is due to underlying conditions causing fluid retention, etc, then get that condition evaluated and treated and the bloating will improve.
