My first (boy) I showed at 6 months, I'm pregnant with my second (23+2 girl) and have just started showing

I had a really good bump at 13 weeks, I couldn't fit my regular clothes by 8 weeks. This was despite being very sick, I was a stone lighter at 6 months than when I fell pregnant.

It varies from person to person, I'm short and was a size 8/10 pre pregnancy so I suppose there was no where but out for baby to go but out.

I am 9 weeks today with my first and I have had 2 people at work already comment on my bump coming along nicely.... I was a size 10 and had a little podge between my hip bones (which were visible!) and now I am a very round shaped 12 with a rock hard Bump... I have already moved into Maternity Jeans as didn't see the point in buying my normal ones in a size up just to swap to Maternity ones eventually anyway!

I didn't start showing really until around 5 months. I was wearing my high waisted jeans until 4 and a half months, and my normal size bottoms (leggings and tracksuit bottoms), until around 7.5 months. My normal size tops fitted all the way through.
I just got some normal bottoms and a few dresses in the next size up. (Didn't bother with maternity clothes at all as didn't need them).

'Showing' to other people about a week or two ago, at 16 weeks. Before I apparently just looked fat to people who didn't know me and when I was in a tight dress hmm. Thanks a lot.

But my jeans and trousers didn't fit me anymore around the waist at from about 11 weeks. I had to leave the top button undone. blush

I was in maternity wear from about 10weeks for comfort but I think it's only really since about 22weeks I've started to look pregnant rather than just bloated. 29weeks now and I find my bump seems smaller some days, anyone else get that? I keep getting told I'm "neat" probably because I am tall but I feel huge.

1st pregnancy I was about 22 weeks, 2md pregnancy about 14 weeks, 3rd pregnancy (ended in mc) I was outta my clothes by 7 weeks and people who knew me well could see a bump but to people I didn't know it just looked like a bloated pot belly! Currently 4+6 and constantly very bloated!

1st pregnancy with twins - started showing at 8 weeks though most people couldn't tell and they told me at 12 weeks like I just looked like I'd eaten a big meal but definitely got a clear bump now at 19 weeks.

Bloopbleep Thu 23-Mar-17 18:19:22

I'm 26 weeks with no2 and popped overnight last night. I looked like I'd eaten too many pies for a few weeks prior to this but not pregnant.

Third pregnancy here. Not quite 8 weeks. Trousers don't fit already and I'm thinking my mum's gonna guess at the weekend cos i am really looking like a fatty... I am gonna be HUGE! shock

Hellmouth Thu 23-Mar-17 18:44:51

I was really bloated from around 10 weeks. Actual bump from week 16/17

ArriettyClock1 Thu 23-Mar-17 18:46:09

I could see a slight bump at 22 weeks, but no-one else noticed until about 28 weeks both times. My first baby was a big one, so I feel lucky I didn't show earlier.

I'm tallish and slim, so I think that helped.

Around 13 weeks, by carrying twins grin

I looked fat till 28 weeks, now people can tell. I'm only a size 14 but I've never had big bumps till the end of pregnancy really

OnNaturesCourse Sun 26-Mar-17 06:42:08

I'm 4+5 and look fat. Stomach, hips, bum, boobs everything has grown/bloated

PlayOnWurtz Sun 26-Mar-17 12:02:25

I'm anywhere between 7 and 9 weeks with the chance this may be a mmc and have a bump I can no longer hide already!

missm0use Sun 26-Mar-17 12:09:45

With my DD I didn't have much of a bump until 26 weeks, this time I'm 10 weeks and just look a bit fat at the moment - hoping that I can make it to 20ish weeks before I show! Once I popped the unsolicited advice and touching started not sure I could cope with an extra two months this time round with wanting to throat punch someone!grin

HellsBellsK Sun 26-Mar-17 12:20:47

I started showing around 14 weeks and it is my first. I know its very unusual to show that early with your first baby.
I was fine about it but now everyone is commenting it makes me upset I'm 18 weeks now.
I have one friend who is due 3 weeks behind me who keeps commenting how big I am and sending me bloggers pictures who are 6months and not showing. I am a size 8 normally I haven't put on weight anywhere except bump and boobs.
I keep telling her everyone is different but it's starting to play on my mind but may be its the pregnancy hormones that are making me bust into tears! smile

I was showing a neat bump at 12 weeks with both mine!! I tend to go massive 🙈 i have grow spurts and also periods where I don't grow much though. Xxx

Mouse14 Sun 26-Mar-17 18:00:23

At about 16 weeks I looked like I was growing a 'pie baby' to people who didn't know. The bump suddenly popped out from about 21 weeks and now at 24 it's very obvious!
