Second pregnancy...

Please reassure me that this is normal. It's not a bump
As such yet, but I look very very bloated....

Sod that. Just looked in the motor, it's huge!

Um well I'm 10 weeks with second pregnancy and seen people at work looking at me suspiciously. I've gone from really skinny to a definite round tummy. Does that ansyour question? Just blame it on cake I've been eating none stop for weeks grin

I'm a size 8, so put it down to that...and all the super noodles I was craving!!

SIL was showing with DC2 at 7 weeks- 2 days after the birth she was back down to her size 8 jeans not jealous honest

I had a very noticeable bump at 14 weeks this time, I keep getting told that it's normal to be bigger second time round.

I've definitely got a noticeable bump & I'll only be 16 weeks this weekend with my first. I weighed myself this morning & I'm 10lbs lighter than I was pre-pregnancy but the bump is there!

Phew, thanks!

I've had to go get some new maternity stuff as stuff from last time round is too casual for work now. It's a good job I've told the office, otherwise they'd have guessed by now for sure!

Your not the only one...I'm pregnant with my 1st baby and I've been showing since around 9weeks

tinyme135 Fri 03-Jul-15 18:29:33

I'm showing a small bump with my first and I'm only 12+5. I've had to wear baggy dresses at work and the delivery man has still noticed haha

I'm on my first pregnancy, 13 weeks, and have had a rounded lower belly for a good few weeks now. The first few weeks it was bloating and constipation, and now it's actual baby related bump.

For some reason I have very strong top ab muscles and the equivalent of over cooked pasta muscles on the lower section. So I'm fairly sure I'll look pot bellied for quite a while before I get the lovely pregnancy curve!!

I have a huge bump. I'm only 11 weeks, second pregnancy. I wasn't this big til around 20 weeks, first time round.

And it's not just me who has noticed - work colleagues have congratulated me in the corridor. Little chance of keeping a secret then!

I have been wfh from home a lot more because i really have nothing to wear for work that fits and because at 7 weeks i dont want everyone to know. This my 2nd, with my 1st i got away with literally a few maternity items from 28 weeks on. No such luck this time sad

Baguettes Fri 03-Jul-15 20:17:26

Erm...I've been in maternity trousers since 6 weeks and at 10 weeks now have a noticeable bulge of fat and bloat bump.

jugglingmonkey Fri 03-Jul-15 21:19:24

All very reassuring, just what I needed to hear!!

Scared it's going to take twice as much effort to lose the baby weight after no. 2!!

originalusernamefail Fri 03-Jul-15 21:23:14

Your def not the only one OP, 13 weeks with DC2 and I am huuuuugggee blush. I'm desperately trying to tell myself I don't have a bigger bump than my 28 weeks along colleague (I do though).

spnfan Fri 03-Jul-15 21:28:32

You're def not the only one! I'm 15 weeks with DC1 and had the sonographer double check it wasn't twins at the 12 week scan as I'm so massive! Been in maternity jeans since week 8!

SnozzberryPie Fri 03-Jul-15 21:39:56

Snap. By the time I told work at 13 weeks I was having to hide my bump under floaty tops and scarves. Now at 18 weeks I am getting congratulated by people I bump into and have been asked if it's twins when I tell people I'm only 18 weeks.
