I'm curious to know when people starting having a baby bump?

I think I suddenly popped at about 22weeks.

With my first, about week 16... with my second, about a day after I got my BFP :S

I'm only 13 weeks but already have a visible bump... I know it's bloat not actual baby yet but anyone who looked would be very aware! I'm usually slim size 8/10 with a naturally flat stomach so it's very obvious. Can't wait til it turns to proper bump!

I'm currently 29 weeks. To me and the OH, I started showing properly around 22/23 weeks or so. I'd have thought I was incredibly obvious by now (there is a proper bump there!) but in a meeting at work yesterday (admittedly with a load of blokes!) no one could tell I was pregnant. I was a bit like, "cheers guys, this isn't flab!"

With my first it was close to 30 weeks. With this baby I was 23 weeks. We were on holiday at 18-19weeks and nobody knew I was pregnant lol

I went on holiday, with my bestie, to Cyprus at five months pregnant with DD1. Before I went no one at work, except best mate, knew nor had they guessed apparently. When I got back only two weeks later though I looked like I'd been inflated so kind of gave the game away! Second time around (DD1 was only five months old) I was showing from two months!

About 5 mins after taking the test! But I was quite fat and gassy...second preg.

I've always had a bit of a round bloat-prone tummy so I didn't notice, but friends of mine were pointing out my 'bump' from about 16 weeks. I'm a few weeks on now and feel like I am definitely showing now, it's not just bloat!

Helbelle75 Fri 25-Nov-16 12:52:50

This is my first pregnancy to progress this far, and mine was at about 15 weeks. A definite bump as well, which is good!

I told work when I was 24w with my second and nobody had guessed! I also had to go to A&E at 30w after I sprained my ankle badly. The Dr wanted to X-ray me and I had to tell her I was pregnant. I was wearing a baggy jumper at the time!

I got my bump around 15 weeks, I do miss having a bump smile

Spam88 Fri 25-Nov-16 15:19:12

I'm 15 weeks and definitely have a bump, although I mostly just look fat.

PeachBellini123 Fri 25-Nov-16 20:10:05

I thought I looked pregnant early on but then I told work colleagues at 18 weeks and they were shocked. I didn't really get big until about 25 weeks.

First baby.

Difficultyear2015 Fri 25-Nov-16 21:53:49

12 weeks here with definite bump. I was in maternity jeans since 11 weeks and people before that were guessing me at closer to 20.
I'm very short and petite. FTM

user1468957349 Fri 25-Nov-16 23:08:46

About 24/25 weeks for me but wasn't really noticeable to 'strangers' so to speak until 28/29 weeks

doodlejump1980 Fri 25-Nov-16 23:10:18

11 weeks, but it was twins!!

Laura05 Fri 25-Nov-16 23:18:36

With dc1 I had next to no bump at all. After I had DD people were asking who's little one I was looking after hmm

With DS I started to show around 34weeks but still fitted into my size 10 jeans right up to delivery.

This time I've just started showing 25weeks but still in size 8 jeans. Somehow I know I'll be digging out my size 10s and stocking up on leggings grin I've never had to wear maternity clothing but this time round may be different hmm

I bloated straight away so quite early lol. I was in work maternity pants at 8 weeks.
