Hi I feel like I'm going crazy. I am 7 weeks pregnant with my third child. Now because it's my third in 5 years I know I have no stomach muscles at all but I'm convinced that I'm carrying twins or even triplets. At 7 weeks I've put on a stone 😱 my previous pregnancies I've put on 2st the entire pregnancy! I also have a clear and obvious bump already!!! My last pregnancy began as a twin one but we lost the 2nd baby early on. I don't know if I'm imagining it because of this but I just have a gut feeling there's more than one in there.

So my question, when did you start showing with your multiples?

Hi,
I started to show at about 8/9 weeks with twins.. as in I looked bloated. By 11/12 weeks I had a bump smile

Not until about 17 weeks!

Thank you. People keep saying aww I didn't realise you were pregnant, & then looking confused when I say how early I am. I didn't plan to tell anyone till I've had my 12 week scan but there's no hiding it. I don't know what's going on.

I bloated massively from 5 weeks to the point I couldn't wear my jeans anymore and had to wear baggy tops and jumpers to hide it (didn't want anyone knowing before I said) and had a proper noticeable bump by 12/13 weeks that was obviously pregnancy and not too much bread grin

I showed really early and couldn't do up my jeans past 10 weeks. I lost loads of weight due to morning sickness, but had a bump. However, I also had lots of bloating and a bump early with a subsequent single pregnancy!

I'd get an early scan if you can afford one.

With my second DD (single pg) I noticed a huge difference from as little at 6 weeks. No more jeans and I bought a few floaty tops. People still twigged though - must have been the running to the bathroom to be sick 10 times a day 😀
Congrats x
Oh and I ended up enormous with a less than 2st weight gain.

I've put on 4lb but bloated around my tummy area had to buy comfy jeggings, jersey skirts ect already and I'm only 11 week on Monday

I'm 11 weeks on Tuesday and I think I'm just bloated...no "bump" yet.

I showed at 11 weeks but was mostly bloating. The huge bump started at 20 weeks and never stopped 😁

@Mumoftheark has it turned out to be twins?
@dangle90 we are due the same time, are you on the January babies thread?

dangle90 Mon 19-Jun-17 10:25:13

No chocolate I'm not. I feel it will be very well established by now lol! Nice to know your due at the same time as me! Did you have an early scan too then? X

chocolateshortcake Mon 19-Jun-17 20:08:21

Yes, had a private one at 7+5 and got the shock of my life!! Took about a week to sink in! Just waiting for date for 12 week scan now so feeling the nerves again. Have you got a date for yours yet?

dangle90 Mon 19-Jun-17 20:16:23

Same for us we only found out weds so total shock! We have our 12 week scan appointment it is next weds. I can't wait. Already counting down the days! I hope we can keep in touch through out the pregnancy
