How much should I be showing? Twins?

I'm only c. 11 weeks and I'm definitely showing a bit. This is my first and so have no idea how much of a bump I should have?

Is it possible to show this early and there's only one baby?

Baby was conceived naturally.

Thanks

Depends on your body! I'm only having 1 but it's my second and was showing at 12 weeks! I'm now 26 weeks and look like I did at 36 weeks with my first. Congratulations! My good friend just had twins and at 24 weeks she measured full term (40 weeks)

I'm pregnant with twins at the moment and at 16 weeks would compare it to about 25 weeks with my first and was showing by 8 weeks, but having looked at lots of pictures online some people with twins are tiny at this stage so I think it's entirely different for everyone! You need a scan! I was also twice as sick and twice as tired.

At eighteen weeks with twins, people assumed I was at my due date. I was measuring well over full term at around 28 weeks.

I was vomiting over ten times a day around five weeks pregnant. By eleven weeks, I was passing out asleep at work during lunch breaks! SPD had already kicked in as well.

But everyone is different. And if you are eleven weeks, surely you will be having a scan soon....so you'll know either way!

I had twins and started showing at 16 weeks.

Hi thanks for the posts ladies. Yes our scan is a week on Monday but just trying to prepare for the possibility haha! X

Had twins (first pregancy) and didn't really show until 16+ weeks, though I did find maternity jeans more comfortable from about 13/14 weeks.

I didn't have any sickness or other symptoms except tiredness, and certainly not a double dose of anything!

You really can't tell, though I understand that it's hard to wait for the scan smile

At 11 weeks most of the bump is bowel pushed up and gas and bloating from hormone changes. Depending on how strong your stomach muscles are this may show more or less. I am on second preg and muscles rubbish and been showing from about 7-8 weeks ...look huge!!!

I'm 13 weeks with second pregnancy and it's definitely becoming more noticeable now!

I was eleven weeks on my wedding day and there was a definite bump. I look back at the photos and think how did I keep it a secret?!?! We told everybody later that day but noone had gueseed. One baby for us.

Thank ladies, I'm sure this is natural first time anxiety and only 6 days before I know now. Really looking forward to scan, just hope all is ok x
