I am due to get married on October 31st, when i am 18w exactly.
Looking at dresses but being ftm i have no idea how big bump will be then?
I have none for now just some bloating and big boobs.
How did your body change between 13 and 18??

Thanks for your help!!

My first pregnancy I think i was in stretchy trousers by about 14 weeks but didn't really have a noticeable bump at 20 weeks

I'm 19 weeks with twins now though and my bump is massive 😂

The thing is the bump can just pop out from no where - my friend at 20 weeks had an amazing flat stomach - 2 weeks later the bump had popped!

I had literally no bump until well beyond 18 weeks

I'm 18 weeks now and I do have a bump, if you didn't know I was pregnant you might just think I was very bloated though! Size 10-12 pre pregnancy.

A flowy maxi style dress with a high waistline is probably your best bet (ideally with elastic or some give around the waist as anything tight will be uncomfortable).

I was 17 weeks with first pregnancy when I got married. Had wee bump but not visible in dress, make sure you get it let out a little bit around your waist/ribs so you're not uncomfortable! Nobody would have known I was pregnant

I just looked bloated until 20 weeks then really did pop overnight and woke up with a huge bump lol! Congratulations

Fit and flare is a good option, 1950s style. Maxis sometimes accentuate it I think

I was the same as pp, slight thickening of my waist from about 14 weeks but it wasn't until after my 20 week scan that I "popped" and suddenly had a proper bump

I looked completely normal until 20 weeks, I am tall though

I found a photo from 13 weeks so took one now for comparison - obviously everyone is different but I'm also a FTM so just to show how your shape might change by then.
