So I've been feeling bloaty since my bfp but at just under 9 weeks can no longer fasten my trousers and just about to order some maternity bands. I started showing after 12 weeks with my first but I'm going to have to tell work soon or they'll think I'm just fat and greedy! Anyone else?

I did at Christmas at 16 weeks but it was sadly food.

Proper bump appeared again around 21 weeks and was 25 or so with my first.

I was about 8/9 weeks when I started showing with my 2nd - I was convinced it was twins! (It wasn't). I ended up telling work at about 10 weeks as I was convinced they'd guess.

First baby my jeans were tight at 10 weeks, but I kept it hidden at work until 22 weeks so obviously didn't show that early. Currently pregnant with second and got offered a seat on the Tube at 4+1 (I wasn't wearing a baby on board badge)!

Everything felt tight by 9 weeks, by 11 weeks I felt that people were going to start guessing I was pregnant. A few people told me they had already guessed I was pregnant when I told them the news at 14 weeks as I looked it!

I've been really bloated since week 6, not baby yet but it does look like a bump if I wear the wrong things!

I felt like I showed the day I found out! I definitely felt bigger earlier second time, but no one else noticed till I was gone four months.

They probably just thought I had let myself go.

First time I didn't show until later on. Also had a really high bump, second time everything was a bit, well, droopy. sad

Showed at about 11/12 weeks with this one but not until 16/17 with my first.

I'm 33 weeks now and it all evens out by the end.
