I'm 6 weeks today but have a pot belly. Sometimes i think I'm imagining it and others i think i'm just a bit bloated. Leggings a bit snug.

I'm a size 12, 5"5 and G cup boobies.

With dc 1 it took forever, well it seemed like it grin. Second pregnancy was almost immediate. As soon as I knew I was pregnant I looked bloated. Turned out it was twins grin

Sometimesbrunette Tue 25-Feb-14 01:06:59

i know its not twins, i had an early pregnancy scan today.

i guess i should ease off the mini eggs hahah!

I was definitely a slightly more bloated shape at 6 weeks and by 10 weeks switched to maternity jeans. Bump size still varies a lot from one day to next now at 19 weeks - the other morning if I breathed in I had a totally flat tummy, the next day it's a big round bump. Go figure!

I started to show at 15 weeks with my last pregnancy and it was a bit of a shock. I just woke up one day during my 15th week and saw that my belly is simply very pregnant. Others noticed as well.

MissSlackPants84 Tue 25-Feb-14 09:03:19

This is my first and I started showing at 18 weeks

squizita Tue 25-Feb-14 09:12:58

I am 11 weeks and I know that my little 'pooch' is wind and poo... but I like to think it's being pushed to the front by a bump-to-be. smile

Marnieshere Tue 25-Feb-14 09:40:26

Not until about 6 1/2-7 months!
No one believed I was pregnant for ages lol

I'm 5ft6 size 10.

BeccaBrkr7 Tue 25-Feb-14 09:58:22

Now pregnant with 2nd baby 14w3d and still nothing! Thought I would show earlier with second! I'm 5 8" and size 10!! Didn't show with 1st until around 25 weeks!

With all my DC I never got to 12 weeks before people could tell. Usually the 10 week mark it would become obvious.
I always know Im pregnant because my trousers stop fitting-this is at 3/4 weeks!!
I just explode in pregnancy. Im 5'8", size 12. All my babies were massive though, DH is really tall and big rugby type. Babies weighed between 9 lbs 7oz and 10 lbs 12oz!

mrsmugoo Tue 25-Feb-14 10:06:22

I popped out at about 16 weeks. Literally nothing before then - I had a totally flat tummy.

Cariad007 Tue 25-Feb-14 12:54:22

About 20 weeks I think but tbh I never got massive - even at 40 weeks I'd get people giving me "get outta here" looks when I'd tell them I was actually past my due date. One week post-baby and my stomach is getting back to normal though it's still a bit flabby. Can't wait til I can hit the gym again!

thebestnameshavegone Tue 25-Feb-14 15:17:17

I've got quite a bit of a tummy anyway but i'm now 17 weeks and in the last week or so my bump has really popped out. now I've got much more of a "pregnant" shape, which i'm actually very glad about as before I just looked a bit fat!!

Somersetlady Tue 25-Feb-14 15:20:37

About 16 weeks i could tell but still had colleagues who said ' i had no idea' at twenty weeks!

Still exercising (mostly walking) at 28 weeks and have an obvious bump!

Jess03 Tue 25-Feb-14 15:25:26

I was certain with dc1 that I had an obvious bump at 6 weeks smile I was also wearing maternity wear from then! Some of it was excitement although with dc2 I'm 8 wks and I'm convinced that I can see an obvious pooch plus my leggings etc getting tight smile enjoy it. In reality what you notice about yourself and what others will is different!

ChicaMomma Tue 25-Feb-14 15:58:08

Really only in the last 2 weeks, am 23 weeks now.
I'm carrying very low so i think that has helped, a lot.

Honeybear30 Tue 25-Feb-14 17:16:26

I'm 9 weeks and I know it's just bloat and not baby but come the afternoon/evening I have a proper little belly. Normally a size 10 so I guess I notice it more. Starting to think people at work will notice but like someone else said, what you see and what others see are completely different!

rockin20s Tue 25-Feb-14 17:18:06

i have one pair of work pants left that fit and i am nearly 11 weeks. but i am also suffering from constipation so that could be causing it.

when i lie down flat i diffenitly have a little bump

Plateofcrumbs Tue 25-Feb-14 19:00:27

I've not made a big announcement at work (my team know but I work with a lot of other people) and I'm quite sure I'm getting funny glances at my belly now (at 19 weeks) even when I'm wearing loose clothes. I'm normally a rake though.

Gingeroo Tue 25-Feb-14 19:06:16

I'm a similar build to you. I felt &I looked a tad bloated from about 6 weeks, looked chubby and potentially pregnant from 15 weeks but didn't look definitely pregnant until 21 weeks. Up until that point quite a lot of people hadn't realised I was pregnant and just thought I'd put on weight.

I look back on that and chuckle. I did not chuckle at the time when I was a tired hormonal mess! Ha!

It's so exciting watching and feeling the bump grow!

somedizzywhore1804 Tue 25-Feb-14 19:07:36

I'm 5ft 7 and 21 weeks ATM and while I do look podgier I don't think I look pregnant. This is my first baby.

weebairn Tue 25-Feb-14 20:45:31

I started with a teeny bump around 19 weeks and by 23 weeks others could see it. I'm 5'3 and a size 8/10. Not sure where she was hiding! She was a smallish baby though. I put on a bit of weight on my face/hips etc right at the end but didn't get the early bloat many people get for some reason.

Now 9 weeks pregnant and much the same size as ever - expecting it to pop out earlier this time though.

RaRa1988 Tue 25-Feb-14 22:51:51

I'm 5ft3 and a size 8. Depends what you mean by 'showing': me and DP could tell the difference when in my underwear from about 13 weeks, but only in that my stomach wasn't completely flat any more. Had a more obvious curve by about 20 weeks, but only now at 25 weeks is it particularly noticeable to anyone else and still plenty of people at work are saying I don't look pg.
