As per title really.
I don't have a bump but can definitely see a difference in my tummy and waist. Size 10 jeans are tight and I'm reaching for my fat jeans every morning! Have t really told anyone yet other than on here and my 3 best mates but I think my mum will notice soon so I'm avoiding her!
My tunics for work are getting a little tight, they were very fitted anyway so thinking clients might start to notice as well or think I'm eating to many cakes.
I have a picture from 16 weeks with L and I have a very obvious bump, are the chances this one will show sooner? I'm thinner to start with this time if that makes a difference. And 9+2 today.

I struggled to do up my work trousers just prior to my scan but had an obvious bump by about 15 weeks or so I think

Thanks Ally. Think ill need to tell my folks this week,they go on holiday a week tomorrow so don't think I can hide it another 3 weeks until they get back!

What do you think their response will be?

I'm sure they will be over the moon.
The reason I haven't said already to my family is my cousin and his wife are 11 weeks pregnant with their first, which has taken a while to conceive and I didn't want to say anything until they had gone public - dont want to steal her thunder kinda thing.
Hoping she tells everyone in the next few days because I think she has 12 week scan this week.

Ah right, I thought you were holding off cos you were worried about their response! I was terrified telling my mum this time round lol

Haha no they will be happy I'm sure. Maybe not so much when I'm asking them to babysit in a couple of years right enough lol

I had to do serious bump hiding from about 1o weeks, and when I announced it after the scan, quite a few people had guessed but not said anything.

Well my cousin has just announced it after their scan this morning so ill tell my folks in the next few days!

This is only my second and I'm only 6 weeks but I look huge! I have quite good ab muscles but it seems like they've moved outwards already. Even if I breathe in I still look like I've got a bump!

I have never been really big with any of my pregnancies. I actually managed to keep my third child's bump hidden from work (I only work 1 day a week) until I was nearly 18 weeks! I had just come back off maternity leave in the June and pretty much got pregnant straight away after returning!

I told work when I was 16/17 weeks and they hadn't twigged. I was a size 8/10 then so in some ways you'd think it might be harder to hide but I just wore skater style dresses and tunics that flared from under the bust so not that difficult to hide. I am sure I was showing earlier with each pregnancy.

Thanks ladies. Told my parents tonight so don't mind who knows now!
I'm self employed so do t have an employer to tell so that's not a problem.
