I'm only very early on in my pregnancy but already have a bump. I've bloated quite bad and it's actually looks like a baby bump although I know it's way too early. how many weeks did everyone start to show?

I'm 12 weeks and so bloated I look about 6 months!

I'm 9 week tomorrow and get so bloated I look definitely pregnant. We were out last night and my tummy was so big and round I actually got asked by a drunk well wisher when I was due!

I had a bump at 10 weeks, but then I did end up with twins... smile

10 weeks both times, in maternity jeans and work trousers at the same time. Was v.slim to start with so any roundness looked obvious.

In floaty tops I was not obvious until about 18 weeks.
Abs of steel. Gone to hell now though wink

Its my first and was a size 18 to start with (6 foot size 18) i started noticing jeans were tight at 18 weeks and a definite bump at 20 weeks.

I didn't show when wearing clothing until 20 weeks onwards, so I was able to quietly enjoy being pregnant until then.

20 weeks x

Interested in what people say here! I'm 14 weeks and while I've been unmistakably bloated for weeks all of a sudden I would say it is bloat + possible bump . Perma (small) belly in the morning - by the evening its pretty significant with the added bloat. People were asking me if i am preggers last week at a meeting, so i guess it is pretty obvious. I'm 5,10 and I was a 10/12.

First pregnancy about 16 weeks or so depending what I was wearing, this pregnancy a few weeks earlier and definitely got a round bump now at 23 weeks! I think a lot depends on your body shape etc, my v tall slim friend didn't show for ages with her first, I'm a bit of a shorty and nowhere for baby to hide!

do you show quicker the number of pregnancies that you have? this is #3 and although it's very early I've had people ask when I'm due! it's quite embarrassing when I say I'm still in the first trimester. I was hoping to keep it quiet but it's becoming impossible. wearing floaty tops makes it more obvious that I'm covering something up. I'm covering up with cardigans but we're having a heat wave!! x

First baby - proper bump about 16 weeks although the bloat made me feel like I had one from about 7 weeks lol.
Second time - proper bump around 24 weeks.

I always got bloated Tim around 11 weeks then it all disappeared and then the bump came x

24wks with first, an out 18 wks with second and 13 wks with 3rd. But what ever about the poor pelvic floorsad

Raffertys Mon 08-Jun-15 11:58:30

About 14 weeks with DS. With this one I'm six weeks and so bloated I look like six months.

themumfairy Mon 08-Jun-15 12:18:48

glad I'm not the only one smile I feel ridiculous cuz everyone says you can't show this early but I am. I thought maybe I was further along, can the clear blue tests be wrong as when u tested it say 2-3. I am now 6 weeks too x

kristine007 Mon 08-Jun-15 12:25:24

I looked slightly pregnant before I actuaaly got pregnant. So for few months nobody noticed or was too embarassed to ask ;)
Now I am 18 weeks - looking like good 7-8 months and feeling like I am well overdue (Cherryblossom - I feel your pelvic pain)

TheFormidableMrsC Mon 08-Jun-15 12:31:01

I didn't really show until I was 7 months but was very fit at the time and had very strong abs. It was good, I could wear my own clothes!

IfYouWereARiverIdLearnToFloat Mon 08-Jun-15 17:52:38

I've lost weight through the first trimester - but at 12 weeks my waist is much thicker and my belly is more rounded. I think I might be getting an actual bump... I'm so excited!

CandyAppleFudge Mon 08-Jun-15 17:59:04

Dd- I started to have a small bump at 18 weeks didn't properly show until 29 weeks.
Am currently 10 weeks pregnant and no sign of a bump

goodnessgraciousgouda Mon 08-Jun-15 21:12:45

I have a bump (in my tenth week, so 9 weeks plus whatever), but it isn't a "baby bump". It's just side effects. I think in the first trimester most people have "a bump" which is caused entirely due to constipation, water retention, bloating, etc.

nicolah132 Wed 10-Jun-15 16:48:07

I'm 21 weeks pregnant and not showing much, I have a little belly but nothing too big! I can still get away with people thinking I'm not pregnant!!! I'm just waiting to wake up one morning with a huge bump! smile
