Bump question

Just silly question but did bump actually start to show gradually for you or did it suddenly appear one day? I definitely do have a belly already but I can pass as just getting fat or bloated, but I worry if one day I just wake up and have a balloon belly instead ? It will be pretty awkward then as I haven't told anyone at work yet.

It seemed to be noticeable suddenly for me at around 16-18 weeks. Congratulations!

Mine popped overnight at 15/16 weeks. I was away for a few days and DH was shocked when I got back! Had quite a bit of round ligament pain for a week before.

It can be both!
It often depends on baby's position, one day it can look more bloatey and then baby turns and wow! bumptastic!

Mine popped at 18/19 weeks. I went from being able to fit easily in my normal jeans to wearing maternity jeans very quickly lol. Took me by surprise!!

I am 19 weeks tomorrow and still waiting for a proper bump to appear! It is very frustrating as at the minute I just feel fat and not pregnant. I am really hoping I pop soon!
