My boobs are bigger, I'm definately more round (was already quite well padded at size 16) but that is really about it.

I am feeling something but not definite kicks.

Sometimes I feel like I'm imagining being pregnant and I'll get told I've made it all up soon!!! :s

Do you know, I felt exactly the same around that time! I used to wake up in the morning and have a moment of panic thinking "Oh no, the bump has gone" and thinking it was all in my head!!!

Then you suddenly put on half a stone in 2 weeks and struggle to get out of bed, put on your shoes or even wipe your own bum and you look back on these "I still felt normal" days with envy...

Totally normal, enjoy your ability to breathe normally and feel your normal weight while you can.

I am 27+5 now and the difference between now and a few weeks ago is very distinct. I had a few growth spurts after week 24 (I think) and the changes come quickly after that point.

Well they have in my case anyway.

I feel like that as well (week 22 now). I did have some growth spurt around week 20 when I finally started showing but it was at the time when I was on trip where I ate bit too much so I guess it was a combined result of both factors. As I returned to my normal diet, my stomach feels less bloated although the bump cannot go unnoticed anymore (people started asking questions at work). Still, I don't feel any different - I move around easily, work, run after my DD (2 yr). I guess I should consider myself lucky.

I had a growth spurt over the weekend apparently (24+5 today) and when I went into work on Monday several people commented that I look pregnant now (as opposed to before when I just looked like I'd had too much cake!)

Have to say that until I felt the baby moving regularly it didn't feel real to me either, even the second scan was a bit surreal as I couldn't feel the movements the scan was picking up.

Of course now I'm getting kicked hard enough to make me gasp, get punched in the bladder on a regular basis and my back is killing me. Definitely there!
