I'm 21 weeks with my seconf pregnancy (first prgnancy was with twins who are now 11).
Up until a week ago, I didnt really look pregnant - I had chunked out a bit all over and boobs were huge...but just looked like I'd put on a few pounds.
Over the past few days...I have literally turned huge with a massive unmistakeable bump and fat rolls in my back.
Ive gone from worrying I was too small to worrying what the hell I will look like in another 4 months !!
Has anybody else experienced this ?

I've just suddenly popped out too and I'm 21 wks tomorrow with my first, suddenly started feeling loads of movement too so guessing bubs has had a bit of a growth spurt all of a sudden

Same here! To the extent that people are now asking me if I'm having twins (I'm not...)

Ha ha me too! I'm 27 wks now but I barely had a bump at my 20 wk scan and then after that, wow, it grew. Almost overnight people in the office who didn't know I was pregnant were double taking!

I'm on my 1st and this happened exactly the same to me. No bump, 2 days of stretchy pains, enormo bump and thighs! 21 weeks!

Glad this seems quite common ! Perhaps the 30 week mark is a bit of a catch up point !!

*20 weeks I mean...oops !

mine popped from 22-23 weeks. consultant said this is a very fast growing period so totally normal.

My mum & nana say Im small, mw yesterday said "oh wow, your coming along well" cue me worrying if Im too big!

So far ive managed hide it from a lot of people so I cant be that bad. (jacket and scarf)

I'm 20+4. Mine has 'popped' in the last 4 or 5 days. Saturday there was nothing, today I had to finally resort to maternity clothes.

I've put on 4 pounds since Monday. That can't be right can it? Am feeling regret at all the cake I've eaten.

I'm 15 weeks and at the moment I just look bloated. If people don't know that I'm pregnant then they'll probably think that I have just eaten too much cake recently! x

I popped out overnight at 23 weeks and again, got enormo overnight at 28 weeks and now I'm scared how much bigger I'll still get over the next 11 weeks! really tired at both times too, so assume it's a big growth spurt on his end.

I think it was about 18 or 19 weeks for me. Unmistakably knocked up now!!
