I just had a rock hard flat tummy until about 34 weeks then it came but wasn't ever massive, they just said baby was closer to my back I wouldn't worry if you know baby is growing from scans etc!

18 weeks. I'm 20 weeks now and have suddenly gone 'pop' in the past fortnight. I feel huge!

Thanks all, I'm not worried really, I know baby is fine, all the scans have been fine and listened in with midwife today smile
I'm more a bit put out that I'm needing to wear maternity clothes for what appears to be fatness not pregnancy!
Have had to buy some new stuff too so this bump better appear so I haven't wasted my money grin

It's fine - if you've seen it on the scan there's nothing to worry about.

I'm really small too at 16+ weeks - like ksksnod I'm quite happy to continue hiding it at work!

14 week... actually want to hide it for much longer at work.

I am 40 weeks here and I say enjoy it!!
I had a flat tummy (only bit of me that was in shape) but got a bump at about 14 weeks I think.

It was between 20- 30 weeks that I really expanded and haven't got much bigger since.

13.5 here and nothing. With DS I was incredibly skinny and didnt show for months. With DD I was huge by 10 weeks. This time round Im a fat bird and nothing is showing! ive had to take my work trousers in, twice! shock
I weighed a lb less yesterday at my scan thsn I did at booking in at 8 weeks!

29 weeks for me.

MummyPig24 Tue 10-Sep-13 12:28:05

I had no bump with number 1, number 2 started showing around 20 weeks, number 3 is yet to make itself known at 13 weeks!

FoxMulder Tue 10-Sep-13 12:10:52

I'm only 12 weeks but I've got a right old bump going it. It's quite alarming! I think it's because I'm skinny but with no muscle tone. My sis is the same build though, and she said she didn't show till 20 weeks.

SomethingOnce Tue 10-Sep-13 12:05:10

Yep, I got away with it until 20 weeks and I've seen loads of people say the same on MN.

DaleyBump Tue 10-Sep-13 12:03:24

Agree, around the 20 week mark smile

JellyCurls Tue 10-Sep-13 11:47:07

I'm now 18+3 with no.3 and just look quite fat. No discernible bump at all. With no.1 I was very small all the way through and never had much of a bump at all, no.2 I was enormous and had very obvious bump by now.
I know late showing is normal for the first, but the 3rd? Am not very worried, but if is bugging me a bit.

Normal, not normal?
