I just cant tell anymore. Eaten constantly since wk 7 to stave off morning sickness (not worked...). Ama bit overweight but sort of 'cuddly' fat.
I've got a hard surface above my belly button now that I'm sure wasnt there before, it's quite rounded but then it dips in at my belly button and I've got the usual delightful podgy tummy underneath, although that has been feeling quite hard for a few weeks now.
So it looks like a B from the side.
All my trousers are SO tight and some dont fit at all.
Is your tummy nicely rounded all over when you start showing?
Also, I'm so used to breathing in all the time to look thinner that when I breathe out I cant tell if its any different!
i'm 13 wks at moment...and i have a 'B' shape too (its third baby). i'm sure my uterus has pushed up a bit but the top bit of the 'B' is a surprise and i do feel a bit fatter than normal. i dont wear trousers normally but i they would not fit if i tried and i'm wearing my skirts higher on my waist than normal. have you come through the sickness yet? i'm starting to feel a bit better but really tired at the moment. just recently had my dating scan and thats a big boost for me cause i feel like i can relax a bit more
At the beginning my tummy looked really flabby and fat. It definitely didn't have the rounded pregnant shape till at least 4 and a bit months with the first pregnancy.
I had to keep telling people I was pregnant, not just putting on weight! I also lost my waist quite quickly, and wouldn't fit in regular trousers but found maternity clothes too big. There was definitely an awkward transition phase.
I'm 13 weeks tomorrow and I've got a definite little bump. Though if you didn't know there was a baby in there you'd just think I'd had too many pies. Off topic slightly, but have any of you around the 13 week mark getting any aches and pains in the general area of the bump? I'm sure it's just growing pains but I wasn't expecting it so it's slightly worrying...
Mamaspanx - sounds just like me I've just about come through sickness I hope, it's gone for the last three days. I'm still tired though. Dating scan is sucha relief isnt it? Although got nuchal tomorrow so bit nervous about that
Anathema - I get sharp little stabby pains and crampy feelings. Dr said on monday that was normal although I've got a dermoid cyst too so it might be that.
I really need new trousers, but as you say, maternity will prob be too big so I've been earing my button undone and long tops - great look for round my very male office
Im only 10wk so no bump here just abit of bloating. If you get the under bump jeans/trousers then they are comfier earlier on in preg and i find fit ok for when having a fat day, im still a 10 but in evening expands!!
I was very bloated from 6 weeks which was a bit of a surprise as I didn't start gaining weight until I was a good 20 weeks with DS. I'm now 12+5 and I feel like my belly is huge! People keep saying it doesn't look like a baby bump, which means I just look fat I usually have a relatively flat tummy too I suppose I'd better stop with the Nutella now then
I'm convinced it looks like a baby bump, but then I'm looking from above so it seems huge!
millie maternity trousers shouldn't be too big. They should be elastic, so if you buy in your prepregnancy size, they should fit you lovely now, and be much more comfy that your usual trousers, and then if you pull them outwards (where your bump will be) they stretch out like clown pants! magic!
I only have one pair as still in my non maternity low rise, but the maternity are SO comfy. I've got a pair from topshop, Also love them as they aren't OBVIOUSLY maternity.
