No hint of a bump or anything firm at 16 weeks

I am 16 weeks pregnant today and have had numerous scans so know there is a baby in there! But if it wasn't for those and the massive boobs, I would have my doubts!

Not a hint of a bump, and I can't even feel anything firm in my abdomen. I am quite flabby anyway (size 16 now - was a 12 before!) but can't help thinking if the baby is now the size of an avocado, shouldn't I be able to feel something?!

Curious. Hoping for a bit more of a bump soon!

I think when you are plus size it takes a bit longer for it to turn up but it will! An avocado isn't too big yet, I didn't have much of a bump at 16 weeks even whilst I was very slim during my first pregnancy.

I didn't get a proper bump until about 20 weeks, if it's your first baby you might not start showing till a bit further along

I was really skinny first time and still didn't get a bump til 6 or 7 months. Everybody is different. It'll come then you'll be uncomfortable lol smile

I was still wearing my normal size 12 clothes until 24 weeks and didn't have a noticeable bump to others until around 30 weeks and that was only apparent to close friends and family. 'Strangers' didn't start noticing a bump until about 34 weeks. I'm thanking my lucky stars now though cos carrying this watermelon around wreaks havoc on everything else - glad I didn't have it for so long!

One way I felt the "bump" was first thing in the morning before I got out of bed and needed a pee. Everything is pushed up and you might feel something! But like everyone says lots of people don't show for ages...I'm 19 weeks today and don't have a bump or look pregnant. Unless I eat an enormous meal or push everything out...But that was the same as before!

I'm 26 weeks and still don't have a noticeable bump, I've only gained 3lbs and still fit my own clothes.
With my son I looked about 40 weeks pregnant at this point.

Each pregnancy is different and it's okay.

I'm 20 weeks and haven't got a bump. Thought maybe it was forming but went swimming today and my stomach was as flat as ever. I have spd and waddle but look ridiculous without the explanatory bump sad I didn't look pregnant until I nearly gave birth with my first so expect I won't be that large this time either.

On the plus side my stomach was back to normal within a couple of days of giving birth.

I'm 21 weeks and have a small bump but it's only really noticeable when I'm naked (or need a wee/poo blush!) Still in my normal clothes size 8/10 including my super skinny jeans etc.

Everyone is different as a close friend (similar dress size as me) is only a few weeks ahead & had a proper lovely bump at about 14 weeks x

I'm 22 weeks tomorrow, also a 16, and didn't really get a noticeable bump until last week.
