    Trying to figure out whether my belly is bloat or bump as I think I could be further on than originally thought. Supposedly only 6-7 weeks but my belly is def a LOT bigger than I think it should be.

    Tummy is hard to touch, not wobbly as if I've just put on weight.. Chest has expanded a bit also so my bra's are tight :( Rest of me seems the same size-ish.

    I haven't had any sickness at all and don't think that I really will either way, so I don't think it can be used as a measure of how far along I am. Sore boobs every other day and extreme tiredness most evenings.

    I phoned my docs to have a chat about it but they sort of acted like I was interrupting something and they couldn't get me off the phone quick enough!

    I'm wondering the same!

    I think mine may be bloat but I do look pregnant, IMO.

    I guess only you can know whether it's bloat or bump compared to the size you were before your BFP. And time will tell of course! A lot of ladies have said theirs deflated a little before 12weeks and became a bump.

    Iv looked like ive had a bump from 4+4wk, mind you looking back i was deffo bloated on top.
    your tummy stayed same for a while now or does it change?
    mine tends to change, but mainly once half day is over my tummy takes more of a bump shape and and goes hard, kinda like early BH without the pain lol

    I've had a bump since 6 weeks, but most of it was bloat back then :)

    My sister is 7 weeks preg(confirmed by scan) and looks further on due to the bloat

    My belly is definately bloated, i'd like to think it's a pregnancy bump, but it's not! Mine is also worse in the evenings, although today i am particularily bloated and could do with a maternity top! Is this your first baby? With my first, i started to show at about 4 months, but my understanding is that you can show earlier with subsequent pregnancies as everything is already stretched inside!

    Maybe it is all just bloat then! It does tend to be a bit flatter in the mornings but by mid-morning its back sticking out again!

    At least its only in the middle region for now :)

    Think it tends to be bloat until about 11 weeks ish and then bumps seem to shrink a bit!!

    Fingers crossed for your scan xx
