I'm 18 weeks and it seems like my bump has literally popped out overnight!! This is my first, I'm pretty slim and 5'4 - up until a couple of weeks ago no-one could tell I was pregnant, then a few weeks of what looked like a bit of a bloated stomach and in last week, wow, I have a bump!! I'm over the moon as I've been waiting for the bump but I'm now wondering if it's just gonna keep growing and I'll be huge cos so much has happened so quickly! I'm actually on hols just so when I see my friends next week I think they'll be shocked:-)

I was the same, popped at 18 weeks (5"4" and 112lbs pre pregnancy). 20 weeks now and gorwing steadily smile Still comfortable size, tho I can't imagine what I'll be like at full term!

I'm 5"3 and posted a similar query earlier this week ... only at 14+ weeks so I guess I'm in my usual clothes for a good month yet.

About 20 weeks though I never got huge, even at the end.

for me its more psychological than physical.. I only felt big in the last few weeks and im just at 31 and half..

My first right at the end, 35 weeks. I still had a very small belly though...I felt like a fraud! People didn't even know I was pregnant. In fact I recall being chatted up on the street 5 days before my due date!

My second 20 weeks, but he was a big baby.

My third, I thought my muscles would just pack it in and give up. But actually it was around 25 weeks that I began to show, and not until around 30 that it became obvious.

DD is now 3 but I didnt properly have a bump until 26 weeks!
Between 20-26 weeks I just looked fat sad
From 26 weeks I got huge!
I am 5ft 4" and was 9st 11 pre pregnancy and had an almost 9lb baby!

Best of luck with your babies ladies smile

I was in maternity jeans at 10 weeks. I really popped around 17 weeks and looked pregnant rather than just bloated, I was off work for a week that week and when I came back everyone was like "where the hell did that come from!?". I'm 19+2 now. Very proud of my bump :-)

I'm 16 weeks with my second and no bump so far. I was trying to remember when it appeared last time and couldn't remember!
