6 weeks! mainly bloating but by 14 weeks I looked about 5 months, needed maternity clothes by then! Now 18 weeks and have a very rounded bump

I am only 8 weeks but feel bigger already- not sure if it's bloating or my body going yippee we know what's in store.
To be fair I had been doing WW for five months prior to try and lose weight after DD (1 year) so my body may just be relaxing back to what it has known for 3.5 years

By the time I had my first scan (nearly 14 weeks as it turned out) a couple of people had asked me if I was pregnant and when I announced it formally everyone told me they'd guessed as my tummy was protutruding more than usual. I was in maternity trousers around this time too. By 20 weeks I had an obvious bump. However I'm now 36 weeks and don't look any bigger than this stage in previous pregnancies so I think it's just the initial bump that just pops out quickly.

Depends who you ask, I thought I was showing at 15 weeks, no one who didn't know noticed until 7 months and several startlingly unobservant people I saw daily on the school run displayed total shock at the arrival of a baby as they had "no idea I was pregnant".

So um, 15 weeks, 7 months or never, take your pick grin

By the time I was 5 months, people were already asking me when I was due and I didn't look like I had long to go blush I'm normally a size 10 so showed really quickly!

Am 10 weeks with no 3 and starting to show now. Am a normal weight, not fat or thin about a size 12. Feel as if showing earlier this time.

A couple of people I knew we're confident of the answer enough to ask me at 8/9 weeks. I had lost a lot of weight though so there was nowhere to hide it, and as soon as I stopped dieting I put weight on quickly so I guess I did look much fuller in the waist early on. But now at 30weeks look very similar to the first 2 times.

By 9-10 weeks, the top part of my tummy popped out. So much so, I couldn't hide it from my parents until 12 weeks. I am now 13 weeks and in maternity clothes already. Just hoping it is water and not all baby = lol!

I was 30 weeks before I had a proper bump. Same with my first and second. Wonder if it will be the same #4.

I'm 6 weeks and look about 5 months but I keep blaming my bowel lol. Reading the comments tho it's not uncommon.
