pregnant, I'm a little confused why everyone seems to have a bump and I don't.. I just feel fat, is this normal?

My first child too?

My aunt would swell up like a balloon from the day she knew she was pregnant. Two former colleagues did the whole nine months with nothing to show but a slight rounding of the tum. All healthy, just different.

I'm 19+3 and my "bump" is still mainly bloating. Some days i look pregnant, then fart at night and it's flat by morning again. It's my second do I expected a bigger bump by now

You won't get a bump for a while in all likelihood, although everyone is different of course...

I'm about the same as you along with dc2 and can feel my little bump over the top of my pelvis but can't see it... It's normal to feel fat too - water retention and constipation will do that to you - pregnancy is such a glamorous business. wink In a few short weeks you will become spherical and not be able to get off of the sofa without assistance in my experience so make the most of this time where you can fit in clothes without an elasticated waist. wink

Good luck with your pregnancy! flowers

Yep, totally normal. I didn't get a 'bump' until 20 weeks, I just looked and felt a bit bloated. Then I carried small until 34 weeks when my bump suddenly grew huge! DS was 8lb 3oz and I was incredibly lucky to lose all of the baby weight by the time I left hospital 10 days later (I had a terrible labour and both DS and I nearly died, so I feel I deserved to lose the weight so quickly after the trauma we went through smile)

With my first I didn't have any noticeable bump til well after 20 weeks. Even at 24 weeks I still just looked a bit fat. Not sure if I'll be so lucky second time round
