So today I'm 17+3.
Pre baby I was 9st 2, I'm 5ft tall and was anywhere between an 8 and a 10 in clothes. I have gone up to a size 12 which is fine. I've started to fill out around the tum area but I don't have a prominent bump yet, and I've only put 6.6lbs on. I do have quite a healthy lifestyle and pre baby, I had a relatively flat and somewhat toned tum.
Am I just flapping for no reason? Is it normal not to show so much when you are small and it's your first?

I wouldnt worry hun if ur small and look after urself well then you may not put much weight on. I found I hardly put anything on till the last few months so there's still time for u to put on some pud x

Hi huni with my little man i was 20 plus weeks before i even started to show! i didnt put much weight on either till the end then at around 32 weeks i just went pop! had a huge bump was almost like over night, went to bed feeling small woke up with this huge lump lol
yet this time round iv already got a budda belly! other half thinks there is more than 1 in there but i think its because its now the 4th time my body has gone through early pregnancy!

Thats reassuring to know girls. Thanks for your advice and experiences. I dont mind not putting much weight on, or not being huge - You just expect it to happen. And also, because I am generally quite healthy with my food, I seem to be eating all sorts I wouldn't normally - crisps, chocolate, bread, takeways etc and am surprised I havent put all that much weight on either.

Yup. I must say, I now appreciate my pre-baby body which I didnt at the time and I'm kinda enjoying my new fuller figure
