Has this happened to you? Why is this? I am 7 weeks. Just wondered. Not happened yet!

Totally.
22 weeks and looking , more like 28/30. People keep making exactly the same joke: "are you sure there's only one in there"?
I want to kill them! angry

Ditto - 16 weeks here and I look like I did at 6 months. I think it's cos everything is more stretchy?

Total opposite here, I am 17.5 weeks and have nothing at all yet. This is my 3rd pregnancy..

Only 7 weeks here too and already showing, couldn't wear work trousers last week - too tight. Not sure I'm going to be able to keep it a secret for very long!

No, funnily enough I was biggest earlier on in my first pregnancy and with my second and third I didn't show until later and didn't need maternity clothes until later (early twenties in terms of weeks). All three babies were the same sex and similar weights - I suddenly grew after about 7 months with the last two!

20 weeks with my third here and look like I did at 30 weeks with my first!

Definately. When I was 6 weeks gone I had people guessing that I was pregnant. At the time I was really bloated but now I think it's just due to me eating too many biscuits.

I'm really bloated at 8 weeks, especially towards the end of the day. I'm avoiding sugary foods as well, due to blood sugar issues, so it's def not biscuits!

I've been to the midwife today and she measured 2 cm over what it should be, so I guess I AM bigger than normal. Hope that doesn't translate into a 9lb baby confused

With DD I didn't show for ages. I got a small bump at about 5 months but people (strangers) didn't start to twig until I was about 7 months.

I'm currently 3 1/2 months with DC2 and look the same size as when I was 5 1/2 months with DD! Its all stretched before so there's far less resistance. Thats all. Baby measured 12+2 at 12 week scan.

Second pregnancy here and 21 weeks, only going in to maternity jeans because they arrived today. Colleagues can't believe how far along I am.
