I've been a bit down and worried with this pregnancy so am trying to think positive.
Please can you tell me how soon you started to get your bump the second or subsequent times you were pregnant? I've read that it comes sooner if you've been pregnant before as the skin has already stretched. I'm trying to work out if I've got one coming or if its just fat from my holiday lol I'm 6 weeks tomorrow and already things are feeling tight!

I got bump already at 9 weeks x

I'm only just 5 weeks I'm so bloated stomach feels tight and looks like a baby bump but it must be just bloating and hormones this stage. I did bloat like this with my second but not until around 10 weeks x

I got bloated pretty much straight away and it has stayed and grown. It is hardening now slowly and rounding more. I liken it to a balloon, once it has been inflated once it never goes back the same and goes up easier when inflated again!
I am 17 weeks.

i guess it's true then, wow wee, thanks for sharing. Like the pic LH86. I did think I was bloated too but I do think its definitely turning into a bump...guess I won't be able to hide it from work for that long then. Bring it on happy days I hope!

For me it was around 14 weeks but it varies from person to person. At 18 weeks I could feel little bubbles in my tummy which was the first sign of my baby moving.

I started to pop out at 8 weeks with my first but was very slim back then lol. It's just bloat that never seems to go away. By the end of the day I look about 18 weeks gone. holidaying in devon this sat im sure ill vome back huge but ill just blame the baby lol not the fudge icecream or fish n chips lol x

Ha LH86 that's what I've done too! We've just come back from a weeks cruise around the med and then a week in Majorca! Seriously never eaten so much food in my life but it was well worth it lol!
I'm only 6 wekes today but have definitely got a bump as its hardening... Can't bloody believe it, just had to go and dig out some of my old maternity tops! I'm waiting for an early scan and won't hear from the midwives until next week at the earliest so I hope everything is ok in there....
Anyway, enjoy your holiday hun xxx

mine came straight away i couldn't believe it how fast i looked pregnant especially in a tight t shirt
10/07/2013 at 21:17
I'm in my maternity tops already as my normal tops make it too obvious and I don't really want to share it with work yet as its too soon.

I'm 10+3 with my first and I've got a right little bump goIng on. Always had a bit of a belly from junk food but I can't suck this one in and clothes are just a nightmare, I'm down to the bare minimum of stuff that fits. I think it just depends and your own body. I have a sframe top half and long legs so I'm guessing there's not enough room for my body to hide the bump lol.

So happy biggest congrats Hun!! I popped early 2nd time around and between 6-8 weeks my bump was def there and very visible. I could hide it behind jumpers but not so good in this heat!! wishin u all the very best Hun!!! xxx
11/07/2013 at 17:37
Phew, I'm glad I'm not alone! Today I wore a vest top to work as its so hot but to be honest I had to try and pull my tummy in every time I saw someone, not good and not comfortable!
Aww thanks Rileysmummy, that really means a lot to me, can't believe it still! Saw my mw today just by luck and it's the same one as before, she can't believe it either but was so happy! I feel on top of the world today as she has arranged for me to have an early scan next Wednesday morning and got my booking in appt with her next Tuesday . Have had absolutely brilliant service and care today as the hospital didn't want to do the scan but both my mw and gp insisted on it due to my history. I'm very lucky

My stomach is huge today I look about 4 months, I'm only just over 5 weeks! Really not sure what's going on but my tummy is abnormally big I usually wear size 8/10. Had to wear loose clothes today too.
so happy - that's great you got a scan date hopefully you can relax a bit, I know I will feel better after mine in two weeks xx
12/07/2013 at 19:34
That's great u are beib well looked after Hun!! U def deserve it!!! glad they will scan u as it will hopefully help. Also having the same midwife will be so much better as she knows ur history. Sounds like ur feeling very happy Hun!! Hope Tuesday and Wednesday comes round quick for u xx

Hugest congratulations So Happy, I followed your other thread so I'm delighted to hear your wonderful news.
I am 18 weeks with my second and yes, the bump comes MUCH earlier than the first

Aww thank you ladies, it means so much that everyone has so many well wishes for me...you ladies are lovely, thank you. I'm really happy for everyone else too, being able to have children is such a special thing that a lot of people take for granted. Here's to a happy and healthy pregnancy for everyone, big hugs to all of you xxxxx

It's been a long time since being on here but thought I'd come on and have a nose, see if there are any old names about
Congratulations on your pregnancy Sohappy! And LH86, I remember your DD was born about two weeks before mine. Best of luck to you both and everyone else who I don't recognise! x

Aww thanks Kimmy, I remember you too, hope everything is going well with your little ones xxx

Hey ladies. Well I didn't think I had anything at all. But wearing a lose shorter top over a strappy top today and realised when I got to work that I looks rather round really low in my tummy and I am nearly 5 weeks. Felt really conscious as not telling work yet as they went funny with me last time. Definitely think things happen quicker second time round. Even though the last one didn't work out how think it's still had a effect.
