When did you get a bump?

Hello all, I have read a lot that suddenly your bump will 'pop' out and be more visible... I am 15 weeks 2 days and today my tummy has felt much bigger than previous days, but not sure if this is real bump or just bloat! Did your bumps pop out suddenly or appear gradually? And when do you think you first started to actually look pregnant?

About 22 weeks for me. I bloated earlier, but that was high up and due to awful indigestion. Then I just looked tubby. Then one day I suddenly looked properly pregnant.

With DC1, about 20 weeks or so.

This time, my bump has arrived in the last couple of days. I'm 13+1. shock

I can't remember with DC1, but with DC2 I'd just got back into my jeans after having DC1 - then suddenly I couldn't do them up anymore! I was about 14 weeks, I think.

It was obvious to strangers at 16 weeks.

I felt a bump at 12 weeks, but it wasn't noticeable

I an 17 weeks today and I feel much bigger than a week ago.

About 16 weeks. It kind of popped out from nowhere!

With my first not for months, I was about 6 months pregnant before I had any sort of bump. This time round I'm 24 weeks and my bump is massive! I've been showing properly since around 16 weeks.

About 17 weeks for it to be noticeable to others. I could feel it myself from about 13 weeks. And it did 'pop' out over the course of a weekend

With my first around 13weeks. Was told you show quicker with a second but not in my case. I am fatter this time round however, I am 17+ weeks, still in the same jeans and needing a belt, put on around 3lbs but am quite bloated up top of my tum. Can't wait to get my bump. Loved my huge bump last time.

About 24 weeks it was obvious to me, about 30 weeks to people who knew me, 34+ weeks before strangers etc noticed.

Approximately 12 hours after we had sex.

WellieWanger Sat 14-Jan-17 20:35:47

Oh and mine just appeared overnight with DC1. Flat tummy then boom 'hello elasticated waists'.

Had a lot of bloating in the first trimester that resembled a bump, but I think it was proper (small) bump by about 16 weeks. By 19/20 weeks I was noticeably pregnant to others.

I'm 17 weeks and no noticeable bump yet. Definitely 'thicker' round the middle so look like I've over indulged at Xmas! Xx

My bump really 'popped out' at 30 weeks. I've been taking regular photos and the difference between 29 & 30 weeks is really noticeable! I still didn't think I looked properly pregnant until I was about 33 - 34 weeks though.

I'll admit I was a bit chunky to begin with 😂

user1468957349 Sat 14-Jan-17 21:06:07

Absolutely nothing until about 25 weeks and not totally obviously until a couple of weeks ago when I was around 35 weeks! Now in the space of 2 weeks I've become a giant beach ball lol! X

I told work colleagues at 16+5 ( a Friday) then went on holiday. Arrived back in maternity wear at 18+0. Just over a week.

With twins it was the same- except three weeks earlier.

I think everyones different, i heard that bump's popped and panicked because i was already huge at 12 weeks with my son (first baby too) and thought i'd pop all of a sudden and become a whale too early. My sister didnt have any sort of bump until 6 or 7 months, in photos of my nan when she was pregnant with my dad and his brothers, she was huge on 2 and tiny on my middle uncle. Everyone thought i was 5 months gone when i was actually only 12 weeks, some was bloating of course and my son is growing ahead of himself but at 24 weeks, i cant say its ever "popped", it's just obviously grown haha

First pregnancy. Was bloated in first trimester so looked like I have one but at 20 weeks I could feel a hardness (midwife said it was the uterus) that had reached by belly button. At 22weeks I have a noticeable bump.

Not until I was about 6 months

arbrighton Sun 15-Jan-17 11:44:58

My tummy seems to have popped out this week at 15 weeks. First baby. Definitely one day i could hold and flatten, next I couldn't

I was bigger before xmas though thanks to bloating- i've been back in my normal jeans for a few weeks up til the last couple of days

Mrstumbletap Sun 15-Jan-17 11:46:43

16 weeks

PatsFan Sun 15-Jan-17 13:59:59

About 15 weeks but I could still get away with my normal clothes till about 20 weeks and then after that it seems I'm growing by the second.

Imavinoops Sun 15-Jan-17 20:30:55

I'm 32 weeks, everyone who knows I'm pregnant can tell I have got bigger in the past couple of weeks but to everyone else it kind da just looks like I'm fat wink
My belly isn't that stretched out tbh and the podge at the bottom of my belly I had before getting pregnant is still hanging around. Bah!

Good news is I'm starting to worry about that less and less the more uncomfortable I get! grin
