Hi all, I will be 16 weeks pregnant on Monday and feel like I have no bump at all 😣 I am/was a solid size 16 and I am 5"9'. I have had no weight gain and can't feel any movement as of yet. Just extremely tired and had a couple of dizzy spells. I have my 16wk app next Thurs so may be worth bringing it up with her. I just want to know is this normal to not be showing at this stage?

Thanks 😊

I've been taking photos of my belly since 14 weeks and I had no bump until I was 20-21 weeks! Everyone shows at different times, so try not to worry too much.
If your 12 weeks scan showed a healthy baby I'm confident your lil bun is baking nicely 🥰

I’m 5’9 too and with my first I didn’t have a proper bump until I was 30 weeks!

It's normal, especially if you're tall and carrying a bit of weight beforehand. I'm 5ft 8 and a size 12, didn't have a noticeable bump until 30+ weeks.

It would be worrying if you did have a bump at 16 weeks, I didn’t start getting one until at least 26 weeks

I didn't have a bump until nearer 20 weeks, I'm now nearly 30 and it's very noticeable! It literally appeared overnight x

If it's your first it's totally normal. I got my bump at over 6 months.

Second babies are a different matter!

If you’re a size 16 pre-pregnancy then it may be a long time yet before you get a noticeable bump. I was a size 10 first time round (not any more!) and didn’t get a proper bump until I was 25-28 weeks, maybe further along even.

I think the only reason I've had a bump for several weeks is because I'm 4'10! I'm 15+5 and it looks like a little football!

I didn't get a proper bump till past 6 months. Even now with my second every told me I'd have a bigger bump but it's still very small all medical professionals say how small and tight it is but both babies are normal size

Im 17 weeks today and also tall at 5ft10, Im a size 12 and still no bump or movement for me either! I think only a lb or 2 weight gain too
In the last few days my lower tummy has felt harder when I press it but that’s about it, no symptoms for weeks.
Ive got a private scan in 10 days so hoping that puts my mind at rest a little, but yes you’re not alone!

I was barely noticable with my first until 5 months. I also didn't feel anything until quite far along, I can't remember exactly but probably 20 weeks. I had an anterior placenta.

I'm the same sue and height as you. No bump until further on.
