Just found out I'm pregnant with #2. So only 4 weeks but all my maternity stuff is out on loan!! With DS1 it was around 22 weeks I think that I had to start wearing maternity clothes (used bump bands a lot before that with looser tops). I'm slim build (5'5 and size 8/10) but not quite as fit as I was first time round!
Just wondering when I'll need to start asking for my clothes back...!

About 5 mins after I peed on the stick grin

I'm six weeks today and I'm so bloated I look at least 5 months! I'm not small to start with so it a good look.
Yesterday I held my jeans together with a bobble sad

It's not a good look that should be

At about 10 weeks! I was in elastic waists very soon after that

A lot earlier on DC2 than DC1, DC1 was approx 16 weeks but DC2 was about 7/8 weeks! I started wearing my maternity clothes again about 10 weeks.

As soon as I said the words "I'm pregnant!" grin

Had to pull my maternity jeans out of storage boxes at about 16 weeks, but only had a defined bump from about 18 weeks. I'm now 21 weeks and cannot hide it anymore!

Pretty much immediately, definitely looked pregnant well before I was ready to tell people. Fortunately I had a wide range of clothing sizes as it took me a long while to shift baby weight after DC1

I'm 7 weeks and definetly bloated this time and clothes that I wore to 20 weeks last time are tight.. although I hadn't managed to lose all baby weight from dc1.

About 12 weeks, I think. I'd only just got back into my jeans after having DC1 as well, he was 7 months old when I got pregnant again. I was still on maternity leave and went back to work when I was about five months pregnant, thinking I could hide the bump under baggy tops. I don't know who I was trying to kid, it was really obvious grin

I got offered a seat on the tube at 9 weeks, I didn't have a badge on...

I went into maternity trousers super early - about 14 weeks I think, but that was because I couldn't stand buttons/zips digging into my tummy (made me feel sick) - would prob have fitted into my normal jeans til about 17 weeks or so. Had a massive growth spurt around 20ish weeks and there was no hiding it after that!

Little bump at 20ish weeks, noticeable to others at 26ish weeks. But only if they really looked. I wore some normal trousers right up until delivery. However I subsequently found out she was growth restricted & electively delivered at 37 weeks, so that might explain the small bump?!

About 16/17 weeks you could see, but before that I suffered with morning sickness so started wearing looser clothes - maybe about 14 weeks?

about 15 weeks
