As above really ! Pregnant with my second- had a small bump with my first as well but I think it was a little bigger than I am this time round? If I haven't eaten a lot and I suck my tummy in I just look a bit flabbier than usual! 😅 Everyone keeps commenting on how tiny my bump is (I'm not tiny in my frame though, 5'6, about size 14) just wondered if anyone else carries this way as well? 🙂

Hi, I am 27 weeks today and still wearing my size 12 jeans. I near enough look the same as I did pre pregnancy.
How big was your first baby?

Hey vix! I'm still wearing my jeans too but started to loop a hair band through the button hole for comfort smile first baby was 7lb6oz so not tiny or big- just average! Have you had a bubba before or is this your first?

I'm 33 weeks and I don't look pregnant yet. I just look like I've got a bit fatter.

Although I am having growth scans every fortnight as baby is hovering between the 5th and 10th centiles, so that might explain the tiny bump.

Ive only recently begun to look like I am actually pregnant and I am 34 weeks now! Had a scan today and they guessed she is weighing 4lbs12.

Ah perhaps I do carry on the small side and maybe this little angel is smaller as well like you jose? And lively is 4lbs small for 34weeks sorry to sound like an idiot blush

Ah just looked it up- normal size lively? Same as my last! Average sized baby but small bump!

Hi Sunshine, midwives all seemed happy with her size! She is slapbang in the middle of her growth chart so all seems good.

My DP was worried that I was so small, but now seems quite relieved by it - less stress and stretching on my body etc. Saying that she does seem to be growth spurting now - getting visually noticeably bigger every day!

This is my first. I starting getting a little bump around 18 weeks but it's basically stayed the same just a bit rounder at the sides. When they measured my stomach it measuring 2 days ahead. I think it's probably because I am tall.

lively that must of been a relief! I'm due in with the midwife in a week so will see what she has to say about my measurements! Sure all is fine though but I understand your worry! Agree on the less stress on your body grin vix I always think if you're taller there's more room for uterus and baby to grow upwards into your ribs before your belly needs to expand outwards! May be an explanation? Also good strong stomach muscles will help as well but I know I lack a set of those haha!

I wore my own jeans until 32 weeks but I definitely ballooned towards the end grin my son was 7lbs 4oz when he was born so not massive but not tiny

Definitely don't have good stomach muscles either grin
Hoping all the weight doesn't come at once and cause serious stretch marks!

I'm 31w with my second and don't have much of a bump. I only told work at 24w and nobody guessed!

MyEternalSunshine Thu 27-Oct-16 20:19:56

wizard sometimes that's what happens isn't it! Sort of all hits you at once! I definetly have days I look so pregnant and days you can't tell at all haha! vix I got stretch marks with my first! Was so annoyed as I thought I'd only get them if my tummy got massive- but i put on so much weight with him and my skin is super unstretchy haha! Fingers crossed have had none in this one so far- but I also lost a stone right at the start so my weight gain has only been slowly gaining that stone back since about 20weeks! chloe wow! That is impressive! I've been getting looks- like people are questioning in their minds if I'm pregnant or just well rounded in the belly area haha! I think the waddle I've developed helps them lean towards pregnant- that and I always hold my belly grin
