    Ok, I am stamping my feet and shouting like a spoilt little brat...because I want my bump!! :growlmad:

    I am 17 weeks tomorrow and my tummy just looks like I have eaten all the pies.

    This is my first and so I know it takes longer for bumps to appear...but I am getting severe bump envy now. This is not doing much for my Christmas spirit.
    My tummy is bigger...but it is soft and wobbly, not lovely and round.

    I think I felt a few flutters of movement this week, and I heard the heartbeat last week, so I know my little pip is in there and growing, but I want it to show itself :hissy:

    Anyone else feeling like this, or am I the only saddo :blush:

    I didn't pop until I was over 25 weeks. You'll wake up one day and it'll be there LOL Don't worry, it'll come and you'll be waddling before you know it ;p

    I feel exactly the same. I've gotten bigger around the tummy and had to get bigger clothes, but I just look fat! Think the bump might be starting to come now, fingers crossed!

    Nice to know I am not the only one!

    I am just sick of looking fat - none of my clothes fit properly, but I am too small for maternity clothes. I am going out tomorrow for afternoon (non-alcoholic for me of course) drinks and food with the girls, as is our Xmas eve tradition, and I just look like a heffer in everything.

    I can't wait to bloom!

    (Note: in 12 weeks I will probably be moaning how I can't see my feet, I can't get comfortable etc. Please don't remind me of this thread when I do :))

    I'm the same. Yesterday I thought my bump was appearing as I couldn't do my jeans up without a struggle. today jeans seem fine so I'm convinced it's shrinking. On top of that, what tiny tinyness I have is lopsided. Until I have a proper bump I'm not convinced everything is ok. I even contemplated calling the midwife to see if she will listen to the heartbeat for me just to check everything is ok. Of course on top if that I've not felt any kicks because at my gender scan they said I had an anterior placenta. If I could just feel a little kick or two then my bump envy might go away.
