Most women seem to have quite a bit of bloating in the 1st tri which often resembles the beginnings of a baby bump. Howevere, supposedly your uterus only begins to rise out of the pelvis at approx 12 weeks.
Also if it is your first pg it seems to take a bit longer to show.
I started to see differences in myself at 16 weeks and other people started noticing at 20+ weeks.
Im short about 5'1 and a size 14-16 but sometimes i think i can see a slight curve but think thats just my podge belly though!!!
At the mo i have lost half a stone so far so think it will be a while my clothes are hanging off me.
I'm 10w3d and have noticed my waistline isn't as trim anymore and my defined ab muscles are starting to be hidden by bloating Most obvious thing for me is the monster boobs - nobody could notice any other change to my body as their eyes hit my boobs and don't venture any further
Not expecting to have a bump for a long time yet but going to have to invest in some trousers with a bit more give in the waistline soon due to bloating.
im barely showing now lol! i do have a bump, but its not as big as i expected it to be at this stage lol! i deffo dont look over 6 months! im average weight and im 5"4 so im not sure if height affects ur bump or not! x
I've been showing from about 8 weeks also, went up a size clothes wise and now at 12 weeks am in maternity wear as my belly is that big. I work with a lady who is 20 weeks & I'm the same size as her...very strange!!
Maybe we'll be lucky and grow loads now and little later on ?!?!?
