I usually just look fat til about 18-20 weeks. You will get a bump but it might not be very big. All normal

Doesn’t normally pop till 20 weeks +

You are 13 weeks, give it time. I didn't look pregnant until I was at least 24 weeks, until then I just looked like it had a really good dinner.

I didn't have a bump at all until 19 weeks (first DC) and no-one at work spotted I was pregnant until 28 weeks (black t-shirt & tweedy jacket very effective camouflage ☺).

Enjoy your slim shape while it lasts.

Your uterus is mostly in your pelvis up to 12-14 weeks so this is normal. I didn’t ‘pop’ with my first until about 17 weeks and it was only obvious to me.

Definitely looks like a bump but I found it stayed quite soft until the 3rd trimester with my first. I didn’t tell my colleagues until I was 18 weeks and no one had a clue. I didn’t really get much of a bump until about 22 weeks. With my second I had a very noticeable bump from about 6 weeks 🤣

I didn't look pregnant until well over 20 weeks with my first. I looked a bit fat for a while I'm afraid. I'm a size 12 if that helps.

Your uterus is still so low down at 13 weeks. Very normal to not have a bump for a long while yet

I didn't get a bump at all until 20 weeks - it appeared on the day of my 20-week scan, in fact, and it still wasn't noticeable to anyone else for ages after that.

Also, eating for two is a myth!!! ;) You just need to eat a normal, healthy diet smile

From about 12 to 14 weeks your uterus will start to rise out of your pelvis. If you lie flat on your back and feel your very lower stomach you might soon start to feel a little hump, like a sunrise.

But all that growing going on in your pelvis is probably already pushing your organs (and any belly fat) out of place, which is why you have a little squidgy bump.

I'm slim and couldn't see a little bump until around 20 weeks. No one else would have noticed until closer to 30.

Happy growing smile

I didnt get a bump until 25 weeks and even then it measured small! Everyone is different.

You might be able to feel a little hardness just above your pubic bone, but at this point it's not grown very high. Have a Google of the uterus size at various weeks. Also if it's your first, the muscles are stronger so you tend to show later.

I think you've got a nice neat little 13 week bump there.

You will spend long enough feeling like the Ark Royal, don't be too much in a rush to be enormous!
