I'm six weeks tomorrow and I seem to have a tiny bump already,I didn't say anything as I can be prone to bloating sometimes but this morning dp looked at me and said, 'you actually look pregnant already, I can see a proper bump'. I've never had a flat as a pancake tum but I'm not big, 10-12 dress size, is this bloat or can u show quite quickly. I'm gonna be the size of a house before I know it shock I suppose it doesn't help either that I'm not as regular (tmi) as I used to be blush

Twins?

Definitely quadruplets ;)

I'm also 6 weeks and both mum and DH have commented on my now rounded tummy. Could be just bloating but I feel like people are looking at me and 'know'!

Bloating, I hope. Or super-multiples!

Seriously, a singleton pg doesn't grow out of the pelvis until about 12 weeks. But if you bloat, you can look fairly tummyish earlier.

Oo er!! I was due to have ivf before I found out so I'd pushed the thought of twins or more from my mind when we'd concieved naturally. Probably just a fattie lol!

It'll just be bloating. Your baby is about a centimetre long right now!

Yes all in your head! Baby is tucked behind at the moment. Give it a few months! Most people I know have not been noticeably preg until at least 5-6 months. You've probably just got wind.

Bloating is really common in early pregnancy...I had it with all three of mine. Hormones or something...

I posted something similar at 6 weeks, I have had serious bloat. It's hard to hide too.

I'm 12 weeks now and today I have a proper tum (still bloat) which I've hidden under a jumper all day! We have the scan this week so, if everything's ok, we can tell people at last

I've had bloating and people have commented on the fact I'm showing from early on (am 12 weeks now) Don't panic if some days it's flatter than others. Also mine looks more pregnant at the end of the day!

Drink lots of water and try a probiotic to try to ease the bloating and you may well see a difference. Congratulations smile

Thanx everyone smile the bloat is awful! I've just put my size 10 work trousers on and they are tight, help!!! I'll try a probiotic, I've had ibs before, I'm thinking it may be something to do with that xx

Can you get away with leggings and long tunics/dresses for work? I can and they have become my uniform!

VestandKnickers Mon 20-May-13 15:39:26

I have twins. I definitely wasn't showing at six weeks. Bloating I'm afraid! Exciting though (the baby, not the bloat!).

I find my ibs is aggravated by my cycle. Maybe your preg hormones are acting in a similar way.
