I'm 4 weeks pregnant and already my boobs look bigger and tummy a bit bloated. Can I be showing already?!
I normally have a slim tummy (size 10ish) and didn't show with first pregnancy until about 16weeks..

Newfamily2014 Tue 14-Jul-15 19:48:27

I'm actually 5 weeks pregnant not 4

I think a bit of bloating is usual in eaely pregnancy. Both of my dc didn't show to the outside world until around 22 weeks.

I'm 5 weeks too new and feel mega bloated especially in the evenings! I had a tiny bump at around 9/10 weeks with dd1 but I was about a stone slimmer then! All my symptoms seem to be earlier this time round. Whether it's an age thing, second pregnancy thing or twins I'm not quite sure!

The day I got my BFP.

The minute I peed on the stick

So it's not just me! My boobs feel quite sore and heavy already.. confused

Congrats brindler we're at the same stage! Are you having twins?!

boosirhs I'm bring thick, what does BFP stand for?

Brindler Tue 14-Jul-15 22:17:55

I hope it's not twins! Was just one of my theories as to why my stomach feels so huge so early! Also having the mega sore boobs, waking up feeling sick, ridiculously tired already.

Considering an early private scan just because I'm so impatient - don't know how I waited til 12 weeks with dd!

Me too I'm 11 weeks 2 days and I can not suck my tummy in!
Boobs are very tender!
When's everyone's due dates?

MummyPiggy87 Wed 15-Jul-15 12:27:03

I had a lot of bloating between 8 weeks and 12 weeks, bump didn't really pop out till around 15 weeks which was earlier than my first

NewFamily it stands for Big Fat Positive.

With DD2 I was properly showing at about 12 weeks as opposed to 16 with DD1. that's when I switched to maternity jeans anyway. Ahhhhh.....elasticated waistbands grin

NickyEds Wed 15-Jul-15 13:55:31

2.5 minutes! Wasn't in maternity jeans until around 20 weeks with ds but this time I looked much more pregnant much more quickly. Apparently there isn't the same muscle structure to support the growing bump so you get bigger quicker second time around.

I was due yesterday! And I'm massive.

9 weeks pregnant on 2nd and finding it hard to conceal..
Took until 22-24 weeks on first pregnancy!

twinsandapenguin Wed 15-Jul-15 14:23:45

I also looked so bloated straight away. That eased off a bit but I totally look pregnant now at 10 weeks

fattymcfatfat Wed 15-Jul-15 14:30:13

First pg, I was 10 weeks and everyone knew, same with second. I was usually slim but always put a lot of weight on my belly really early.
My 3rd, the lollipop lady had guessed by the time I was 6 weeks. Everyone was convinced its twins. I'm due a week today, with just one baby!

Frasras11 Wed 15-Jul-15 22:01:05

I've looked full term from about 16 weeks! I'm now 24 weeks and this conversation I had at hospital on Tuesday is becoming the norm.

Waiting for lift and got chatting to a domestic, once in the lift she asks when I'm due:

Me - 1st November

Her - shuuuuuuuuut uuuuuupppppppp. You're massive. Two?

Me - No just one and err yeah I've a lot of amniotic fluid.

TBH I might just put a sign round my neck. No idea if I do have a lot of fluid but it's the best thing I've thought of to say.

Newfamily2014 Wed 15-Jul-15 22:05:23

So exciting to hear about all of these babies about to come into the world! Congrats everyone!
My baby will be due around March 17th I think. So excited :-)

educatetogether yes, LOVE those comfy maternity jeans, wish I could wear them when not pregnant ;-)

Good luck to those due now or soon :-)

NickyEds Thu 16-Jul-15 03:34:32

Fras. You might find that it settles down. I was measuring way over for dates at 24 weeks but, although the baby kept growinng I didn't so much so i was measuring dead on at 35 weeks- Didn't really stop the smart arse comments though.

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Thu 16-Jul-15 07:37:33

10-18 weeks I just looked a bit fatter. Properly looked pregnant from about 20 weeks. I'm having twins this time too.
