I got my bfp last week 5 days before af due. I have been suffering with bloating and sore boobs but nothing major as yet.
For a few days my stomach has felt really hard and the last few days there is a noticeable bump.
I'm a larger lady anyway so thought I'd be able to hide it well and never even had a bump with my other two until past 20 weeks.
Had anyonr else had this or am I going crazy?

Hi, congratulations on your pregnancy. To be honest, it is far far too early for there to be any visible bump. (I think at this stage the embryo is the size of a poppyseed!) even though your uterus will be growing too, it will be a good few more weeks before a bump is distinguishable.
It's not at all pleasant, but it's likely the bump is good old bloating from your digestive system getting a bit of a shake up with all the business and shifting going on down there. It's common to feel a bit if hardness in the tummy in the early weeks. But you're bump will start emerging in due course.
Enjoy the big boobs before the bump catches up!

I have always had quite a bump from about 5 weeks due to bloating. It has then gone down by about 12 weeks and then the real bump grows after that.

Bump grows faster with each pg. less tummy musvles to hold anything in.
My 5 week bump is huge due to ivf ovaries still large. I think i look 4 mths.
