I'm needing advice if someone could help me with how many weeks I would be my mate said I must be between 12-14 weeks I just need some advice before my scan on the 22nd

When was your last period?
Bumps vary from person to person.

MrsGsnow18 Wed 14-Dec-16 18:24:12

There's really no way to tell just by your bump. Everyone starts to show at different t times/feels movement at different times.
If you can't go by your last period then it's prob better to just wait for the scan they will go by the baby's measurements. Congratulations!

My last period was back in October

Chloeross96 Wed 14-Dec-16 18:35:49

My last period was beginning of oct and I am just gone 10 weeks.

I definitely have a bit of a tummy down low but it's changing depending on bloating. I can puff out to make myself look ready to pop but then so can my DH!

Chloeross96 Wed 14-Dec-16 18:48:55

Yeah mine was between sept maybe October it was he 9th it happened I wasn't on anything at the time I still haven't had my period since sept/oct I can't breath in at all my backs been killing me and my back has started to cave in the way when your grow congrats on your pregnancy my mate thought I was between 12-14 weeks I'm not too sure I've got a scan to confirm it on the 22nd was the earliest I could get

My last period was 21st Sept so I've just turned 12 weeks, have quite a big bump because its my second but with my first was flat as a pancake at this stage! Wait for your dating scan chick x

With my first I didn't have a bump like yours until 20 weeks.

With the 2nd it was more like 12 weeks - I was convinced it was twins! (It wasn't)


Chloeross96 Thu 15-Dec-16 12:13:53

Oh god really? I'm very nervous because this is my first time I'm excited and nervous at the same time I've got my scan next Thursday my mate was saying the same about twins running in my family and they do I'm just very nervous with this because I'm new to all of this

Yesitsmeagain Sun 18-Dec-16 00:22:45

Better big than small!!! I'm sure you're fine. smile

Do you know yourself how far gone you are?

BertieBotts Sun 18-Dec-16 20:25:15

9th October would make you 10 weeks today. But period dating can be inaccurate - don't worry! I'm sure the scan technician will be able to tell you a more accurate date.

BertieBotts Sun 18-Dec-16 20:29:14

Oh hang on, sorry, you think it was the 9th you conceived. So yes you would be about 12-13 weeks, most likely.

BertieBotts Sun 18-Dec-16 20:31:10

Is 96 your birth date (sorry being nosy!) I was 20 when I had my first, it is really daunting, but it will be okay, you'll be fine. I really liked the book "The rough guide to pregnancy and birth" by Kaz Cooke, it wasn't as preachy as some of the other books and I really liked the tone.

thecatsarecrazy Sun 18-Dec-16 20:35:32

Have you tried an online calculator

Chloeross96 Mon 19-Dec-16 14:49:20

Hello thanks for the support everyone yeah my birth date is 96 it's fine don't worry about it and yeah it was the 9th it happened I haven't had a period since the end of sept and yeah I've tried that and yeah that's true it's better being big than small I'm just nervous for my scan on Thursday🙈

Chloeross96 Mon 19-Dec-16 14:54:32

I have a few pictures of my bump from today which is the first one and the others are 2 days apart from today's I'm just so nervous

Chloeross96 Mon 19-Dec-16 15:07:55

Also here is one from a few minutes ago I'm just very nervous and googling everything because I'm that scared🙈

GreenGoblin0 Mon 19-Dec-16 15:30:58

sorry not really sure what you are asking?

thecatsarecrazy Tue 20-Dec-16 08:11:44

They will be able to give a fairly accurate due date when you have scan. I conceived my first son after a m.c so didn't have a period. His due date was 20th Feb I had him on 22nd. With my pregnancy now due date is 31st Jan and that's about right based on when baby was conceived if I went by period it would be a few days later.

Chloeross96 Wed 21-Dec-16 01:04:47

Thankyou for letting me know I'm just very nervous with getting my scan as it's my first time falling pregnant I'm just nervous at the least little thing my mum told me to stop worrying but knowing me I just get scared🙈

Yesitsmeagain Wed 21-Dec-16 22:02:25

Chloe what exactly are you nervous about?

You need to try and calm down. Being stressed out isn't going to help.

You can tell your baby is growing. That's good!

Chloeross96 Thu 22-Dec-16 15:13:18

I will stay calm now I've seen my midwife she said I'm fine I've to see her in a few weeks I've got a scan on the 10th Jan
