How many weeks before you had a proper 'bump'

I am currently 15 weeks and just look a bit fat and flabby around the middle! Which is fine by me as we haven't told anyone apart from family. How many weeks were you when you actually looked pregnant?

About 22/23 weeks before I started showing in my clothes

thecatsarecrazy Mon 08-Aug-16 14:54:38

I'm 15 weeks and not showing yet

From about 18 weeks I had a post-food bump only...I think around 21-22 weeks it became a permanent feature, although actually it's still really quite little at 28 weeks unless I've eaten a lot!

About 24 weeks first time round. Visible bump by 14 week second time.

Wow cakes that's a bit of a difference! I had a small but visible bump by 15 weeks I think with dc#1.

Pregnant with DC2, looked podgy pretty much from conception but my bump has only started to look properly bump like since about 20 weeks.

Ive had a proper bump for ages. I'm currently 18 weeks with DC1 and I would say I've had a proper bump since 12 weeks (although admittedly small but definite bump). We waited till after first scan to tell people and quite a few people already had their suspicions due to my apparent bump (which I thought I had managed to conceal).

If l wanted to look pregnant l could ( from about 3 months, with all 3 ) but l was also able to hide it by wearing my normal clothes.
Those that knew me really well, would have guessed( however) as my face looked different.

28 weeks and could still pass for fat! grin

Jodie1982 Mon 08-Aug-16 17:25:08

17+3 now and have a bump...and huge Boobs!

Vixxfacee Mon 08-Aug-16 17:26:38

I was about to start a similar thread. I am 15.4 and stomach is flat! This will be dc1 and I thought last week I was seeing something but flatter than ever now.

About 22 weeks for a small bump. Prob around 26/27 for it to 'pop' now you can't miss it!

chloechloe Mon 08-Aug-16 18:01:53

I'm 20 weeks with my second and work still don't know (except my line manager) and nobody seems to have noticed. I am starting to pop though at times, depending on how the baby is lying. Need to hide it for another 3 weeks until big boss gets back off holiday and I can announce it.

With my first I only looked about 5 months gone when I was overdue. My babies seem to do a good job of hiding themselves!

UnicornPee Mon 08-Aug-16 18:31:38

My 2 children I didn't show until after 20 weeks.
However I am now 8 weeks with the 3rd and I have a bump already!!
Which is going to make keeping it a secret til 16 weeks hard no doubt. Wonder if it's twins...!

Another one who's been showing from 12 weeks here. I'm very hourglass and quite short bodied so wasn't too surprised to show early.

Macauley Mon 08-Aug-16 19:19:48

16 weeks and have a small bump that's getting more noticeable by the day shock

fruityb Mon 08-Aug-16 19:21:01

I was about 18 weeks when I had a little one.

I'm freaking enormous now at 38 lol

Titchypanda Mon 08-Aug-16 19:48:42

I'm 16w and just look fat!

TheFandango Mon 08-Aug-16 19:50:27

1st baby and at 16w a few people at work noticed - feel gigantic now at 28w!

April241 Mon 08-Aug-16 19:53:20

At 13 weeks I looked bloated and podgy, had a very definite bump at 14 weeks, first pregnancy carrying two though. 28+3 now and I'm huge but all bump so far (and an extra chin!!!) had taxi drivers worry I'm going to deliver in their car grin

YorkieDorkie Mon 08-Aug-16 19:59:29

22/23 weeks I think.

tinkwastaken Mon 08-Aug-16 22:22:56

I'm pregnant with 3rd. Was a size 6 before each pregnancy so any bump was obvious. 18 weeks with first, can't remember 2nd but 14 weeks now and obviously pregnant to outsiders.

About 18 weeks
