Showing or bloated

I'm 12 weeks 3 days with second child and my tummy which has always been flat no problems with bloating normally, didn't look pregnant til like 28 weeks with first 😂 has suddenly popped out the last week or so. Is it just bloating or is it possible to be showing already? The other day at uni someone actually asked me if I was pregnant too which shocked me. If I'm just fat from bloating I'm going to take offence 😂

Could be both. I was insanely bloated from about 7 weeks then it came as a bump at about 14 weeks. Is it your first pregnancy?

Just read your post, doh! I think after one pregnancy, you do show a lot sooner because the muscles are already stretched from the last time smile

I'm at 13 weeks and have a very visible bump! I think some of mine is bloating but it's definitely grown significantly week by week since about week 10. Which I know is ridiculous but there's no denying it's there and it's growing so who knows! Just embrace it! You ARE pregnant so even if it is bloat, who cares?! smile

2nd baby 12 weeks and showing here. Bloated too as a lot of it is high up. I obviously have no stomach muscles left grin

This is my first baby and I thought my stomach muscles were ok! Pre-pregnancy I prioritised working out regularly. Clearly did nothing! This technically is my third pregnancy though after 2 early losses, one of which was twins so don't know if that has maybe contributed!

Second baby here, definitely showing at 11+5. And my tummy is firm! X

2nd baby & showing slightly at 11 weeks despite having lost 3lbs since being pregnant. Had to order maternity uniforms at work this week and I'm sure I didn't wear them til third trimester last time.
