I'm 7 weeks pg with DC2 and I swear I'm starting to show already, can this be possible?! Or is it just bloating, and the fact I never lost my baby weight from last year? blush

Totally possible with the second!

I'm only on my first and didn't show til around 20 weeks. But then I wasn't the slimmest to start with, so it was never going to be a shock that I had a tum!

Bump grin

I'm 17+2 with my first and started showing about a week ago. Have quite a small bump though! Am quite slim so it's obvious to me but probably not to other people.

Between 5 and six months (with my first). At seven weeks had bloating, though, and thought that was the start of it!

HollyFP Mon 03-Oct-11 08:05:29

With my first I started showing around 4 months. This is probably just bloating then innit blush

I started to show to the extent of people guessing my pregnant state at about 14 weeks - this is my first.

I am pear-shaped size 10 with a flat stomach so I was aware of bloating and new curves at my waist from about 8 weeks though people wouldn't have noticed.

The funniest thing is when bump appears to double in size overnight. Has happened 3 times or so - all after 20 weeks. Mini growth spurts or something I guess! Am now 29 weeks and feel huuuuuge.

I was about 8 weeks with my second when I couldn't fit into my normal clothes and I was about 12 weeks when other people mentioned it

HappyAsIAm Mon 03-Oct-11 10:03:51

About 11 weeks with my first, and now that I am 10 weeks with my second. To the extent that it was noticeable by other people. I am quite short and have a petite frame if that makes any difference! I think I will have problems keeping this pregnancy under wraps at work until I get my 12 week scan, as I am noticeably pregnant. None of my clothes fit, but I am not big enough for maternity wear. I remember this stage well!

I'm 30 weeks tomorrow and with clever dressing (printed dresses, statement necklaces, leggings and bright nail polish!), some people at work still haven't noticed! But because I was a size 8 with a flat tummy to start with, I guess I started noticing changes at about 12 weeks. The boobs have certainly taken on a life of their own! I'm totally with stripeybump on the growth spurts. I literally get bigger and bigger during the day as I eat food and am huge come nighttime! I used to revert to being small again in the morning but not lately...

After 22 with first and im 22week with 2nd, no-one can tell but i have a teeny tiny bump smile

Gingersnap88 Mon 03-Oct-11 10:31:40

I am 16+2 and have a wee bump, I was quite slim beforehand with a flat tummy but wide hips, so I don't know if that contributes? grin

Didn't show till about 20 weeks with first and second, but with third, fourth (m/c'd at 9 weeks) and fifth, I bloated from about 6 weeks. That went at about 12 weeks, and I realised it was becoming all hard baby bump. Fibroids don't help. But I am now 15 weeks and have a giant tummy - 5ft 3 and small built so I look about 25 weeks smile.

HollyFP Mon 03-Oct-11 12:28:15

I'm also 5'3 and small build, I don't think it helps grin
Scoffing copious of bread isn't helping either - damn morning/evening sickness angry

delgirl01 Mon 03-Oct-11 12:56:28

I'm 20 weeks and to me it's just started to become noticeable but nobody else seems to notice it, look like I could just have a bit of a belly and I still fit in my normal clothes. This is my first pregnancy though so I'm not sure what the normal state of affairs will be.

dreamfeeder Mon 03-Oct-11 13:03:57

Holly, i'm nearly 12 weeks pg with my second, 5'4" and slim build and I'm huge. Like upsettingly huge.... Lots of people know I'm pg as been vomming enormously, but I have a definite bump. Barely showed til 17 weeks ish with first, and even then you could just have thought I'd put on a few pounds. I am the size (esp by evening) now that I was at 17-20 weeks then. HUGE. And I have lost weight with the vomiting and am down to just over 8 stone, so I think tis bloating and saggy tummy muscles and maybe, maybe could be a week further than I thoguht. 12 week scan Thurs, so we will see!!!!! But def started expanding at 7 weeks, i say you've got a bump!

dreamfeeder Mon 03-Oct-11 13:06:29

bloating it may be, but it's still bump-like bloating... someone has even asked if i'm pg, so they must have been quite confident?! (a friend, not random supermarket stranger, though I do find they-supermarket strangers- comment a lot by the end...)

kblu Mon 03-Oct-11 13:08:04

Well I could tell at about 12 weeks as I had to open my top button but other people would have just thought I was getting a bit porky. I think from around 17 weeks I had a definite pregnant look about me.

tostaky Mon 03-Oct-11 13:56:32

This is depressing… Im pregnant with my third and I am only 6 weeks and I show quite well already!!!

Crosshair Mon 03-Oct-11 14:11:55

Had bloating/water retention in the first 12 weeks, got the actual bump at about 16 weeks.

dreamc1 Mon 03-Oct-11 14:38:00

I'm 12+3 and seem to have a very large bump, I too am 5ft1, tiny build. Seems to have popped out over the past week or so. From having a very flat stomach to being quite rounded takes a bit of getting used to... struggling to get used to it.
I did have a very small bump that was only noticeable to me around 7 weeks, now however, it looks massive in the mirror.

melliebobs Mon 03-Oct-11 18:13:03

20+1 today and still waiting sad Im a size 14/16 so not exactly massive and still in my normal clothes. Was so depressing when I went to my anomaly scan on Friday. Full of pregnant looking women and me there trying to keep my linen pants up (as dh puts it my arse has disappeared)

SavannahRose Mon 03-Oct-11 18:52:31

Started showing with my third at about 9 weeks! Well it is only 20 weeks since I gave birth now 14 weeks preg! X

frutilla Mon 03-Oct-11 19:14:41

I have narrow hips and short body so I show by 8 weeks but can disguise it with clothes.

ReadRideABikeSwim Mon 03-Oct-11 21:02:51

i am almost 19 weeks and not really showing yet
I have however gained a lot of weight HUGE boobs which anyone who knows me would have eyes out on stalks at them!! This is number 7 for me but i am quite tall - which helps hide it
