Crazy bump pics 22 weeks


Hi ladies. This is just a thread for girls who (like me) aren't showing till really late (even with a second baby!). Just thought it might be helpful to show you a few pics where you can see the difference between my "real" bump, my sucked-in belly, and my totally-let-it-all-flop-out belly. And if it's helpful to remember that most of us totally-let-it-all-flop-out, so when you see women at your stage with what seem like huge bumps, remember it's not all purely baby! As the vast majority of us start pregnancy with a little fat on our bellies (unless we're Sarah Stage or Cheryl Cole)...

Can't post pics together in one post so here comes the spam.

This pic is me today, 22 weeks, holding my belly in.

This is me lying on my back with my true bump showing. (Which disappears when I stand up, fwiw!)

And this is me standing totally relaxed, letting my belly hang out! It looks as if about 10 weeks have passed between the first picture and this one, haha. It was actually 20 seconds.

(Sorry they all bloody came out the wrong way up)

I'm currently 15wks 4 days with baby number 3. Have no bump at all yet, even lying down. I'm not really expecting it any time soon though. This was me at 31 weeks with dd2 (she was born 7lb 15oz at 41+3)

This was me at 34 weeks I gave birth two weeks later... I'm 18 weeks now and don't have a bump yet and this is my third pregnancy

You both look amazing! It's nice that I'm not the only one with a little bump. I was like this with my son too but my bump absolutely exploded in size at some point (I can't remember when!! I think it was around 25 weeks? But not sure) and by the end I was humongous. But I really thought it would happen sooner this time. It's kind of frustrating, because either people don't know I'm pregnant at all, or they do and they make comments about how small I am. I know I had a retroverted uterus before pregnancy and I'm pretty convinced it's not properly tipped forward, I have a growth scan tomorrow (for a different reason, unrelated to my lack of bump) and plan to ask the doctor about that.

I also have a retroverted uterus so I do think that contributes to showing later. I grew LOADS from 32ish weeks until due date both previous pregnancies. I was pretty big by the time I went into labour. Xx

Yeah I think that must be it too, because according to my last scan my uterus is the normal size, so it must just be that it's still tipped a bit back inside me, otherwise where the hell is it...haha. However you still look really good generally whereas I have put on loads of weight all over including belly (and face and arms and hips and thighs..!) it's just that only like 10% of my relaxed belly is actual bump! What can you do eh. As long as baby is ok, and I'll find out at my growth scan tomorrow if baby's size is still on track hopefully
I just thought a thread for women who have tiny or no bumps would be useful because mostly on here you see women with normal sized or big bumps especially for second/third time mums etc and it can get you down a bit! At least me personally haha.

How do you know if you have a retroverted uterus?
