I am 11 weeks on Monday and I seem to have woken up this morning with a full on baby bump!! I have no idea where it has come from and didn't expect it this soon.
I am quite big anyway a size 16-18 and it isainly on my tummy that I put on weight but this is different as its hard and high up!!
As I am quite shocked at suddenly having this so early on I was wondering when everyone else's bumps appeared and if u think this is normal?? X

This is my first baby and from what I have read on the Internet first babies normally don't show until later on x

First time round I felt bloated early on but could properly notice bump about 16 weeks, but probably for other people it wasn't obvious til about 24 weeks. I was a size 12/14 pre pregnancy.

This time my stomach muscles are shot so I was back in my maternity jeans at about 8 sodding weeks. It wasn't really a proper bump though, just my fat being displaced!

In short, everyone is different. There isn't really a 'normal' I don't think....

I think at 11 weeks your uterus is still in your pelvis, but as it grows it starts to push everything else out of the way so it looks bump-like before actual bump is there, if that makes sense (sorry if gibberish, I'm a bit tired!)

Thanx I thought it was a bit early to be proper bump.

And yes that made sense lol x

I had a bit of a bump from 11 weeks onwards. I'm quite little and thin anyway, so I think it showed up more.

It wasn't visible under my clothes, although hiding it is more of a problem now I'm 18 weeks...

At 11 weeks, I felt big and like my bump should be obvious to the world. Looking back, I just looked like I'd gained weight. Didn't tell my boss I was pregnant until I was 17 weeks, I was sure everyone at work knew already, as to me, I looked pregnant. I was a size 16 pre pregnancy. Now at 21 weeks, there's no denying I have a bump!! I'm very bump proud, I like to stick it out and rub it grin

We're all different, your body will do what it needs to do.

I'm quite little and wear baggy clothing - but other people exclaimed that it 'popped out' around week 11/12.

Thanks everyone.

I guess I am just a bit shocked as my friend is a few months further on than me and didn't seem to be this big at my stage.

Guess I'll just have to see if it goes down and its just bloating but it certainly feels different. Xx

'was' a size 8 so showed from 11w but could not hide by 13 weeks (despite boss asking me not to let anyone at school know??) This time showed from 9 weeks and now am 14 weeks and look 5 months. Am always a lot bigger in the evening though.

I think it was around 17 weeks that my DH said I finally looked pregnant rather than fat!

My bump sort of went down by the mornings that early on though, it can vary through the day as well as from person to person.

Now it's just huge all the time! (37wks)

I was generally a size 10, occasionally 12 pre-pregnancy and I was around 25 weeks before I had a definite bump. I was in my normal jeans until about 18 weeks. I am 31+4 now and I get compliments on my 'neat' bump grin I will probably balloon in the next 8 weeks!

SeriousStuff Sun 28-Apr-13 23:35:23

My bump is hit and miss! I'm 16+1 and in the morning, if I lie down and tilt my pelvis, it's like a cone and sticks out a mile! But as soon as I go to the toilet, it's nearly all disappeared. However, as I eat during the day, it starts to get pushed out again. So strange!

I first noticed a hardened paunch which I couldn't suck in anymore at around 12 weeks.

I'm 14 weeks and overnight this huge bump has appeared! Had to buy my first lot of maternity clothes yesterday (wow the jeans are so comfy!!)

RJM17 Mon 29-Apr-13 11:16:25

Think I am going to have to buy some maternity clothes. I have just been wearing bigger clothes but starting to look like they just hanging off me and look scruffy!!
I am definately going to have to find a better style. Lol x

My lower abdomen has a different curve to it at 9 weeks... Expecting a bump soon.

Kelly1814 Wed 01-May-13 08:25:05

I'm 17+1 and still waiting. I can suck my tummy right in if i need to (handy when in bikini around people who do not know!)

let's see what happens in the next few weeks...

RJM17 Wed 01-May-13 09:21:51

I know its definately not twins as already had a couple of scans due to bleeding early on. But wasn't expecting this huge belly already x

HopefullA Wed 01-May-13 09:43:51

Im 12weeks tomorrow and i def have a little bump. Not that visible in my clothes, just looks like ive eaten too much. But when clothes off, def rounding of my lower abdomen. Hubbie was rubbing it last night as first time he really noticed it was sticking out.
I quite like it though my work pants are just too tight now
