Hey Ladies!

Right I'm 18 weeks and 1 day: and i really feel like a have no bump yet at all.. I'm really worriedhmmconfused

I think I felt some sort of movement mid week last week, but nothing for the past for days?!! Should I be concerned?

Im also full of a horrible cold ..

Anyone else feel the same way about the bump etc!??

Hi, I wouldn't be worried about movements this early smile but your midwife is always available if you feel you need to contact her

Also I am 22 weeks on Wednesday and I have only a hint of a bump, literally if I haven't told people then they would have no idea there is a little baby in there, some people have small bumps and some have bigger, this is my second child and I was tiny with my first too but just turned out he was more baby than water smile

same here: now at 21 weeks with a very small bump (i know i have it, simply because pants are tighter than before, but it's nowhere near what i've seen on other women).

movement-wise, i didn't feel anything until last week, when the midwife did an ultrasound and asked me "and you really can't feel this?" when the baby kicked during the ultrasound. i did, but turns out his kicks were very similar to my intestines grin

but the second trimester ultrasound seemed fine, so then i guess it's just like that: some women have big bellies, some feel their babies early, others not. as long as you have no indication something might be wrong, then chances are very high that it's ok.

Its totally normal! You dont get really pregnant looking until nearer 30 weeks and its normal to feel little to no movement until 22 weeks and even after that.
