    Hi ladies!

    I've just popped over from the first trimester to ask you all a question.

    When did you all first start to feel a proper belly growing?

    And what does it feel like? does it feel hard or soft?

    I don't know what to expect or when to expect it! help please?

    I had a m/c at 12 weeks after no development from 9 weeks last time and I remember not feeling a belly. As it's approaching that 9 week point again for me I'm starting to worry!

    Thanks x

    Hi there. My belly started to pop at about 19 weeks. It was soft at first but as your uterus starts to expand you can feel it. I'm now 35 weeks and I'm all bump - I don't seem to have gotten bigger anywhere else. Even my boobs havent grown that much but I was a 34G to start with!

    Bump now quite firm and goes rock hard with the BH.

    Best of luck! X

    around 19 weeks, my belly was not extremely hard and it still isnt it's a bit firm, apart from when LO is pushing out his bum or laying with his back against my belly button (well at least thats what I think he's doing??) it goes really hard then and sometimes is uncomfortable/ hurts so I have to give him a push out the way :)

    It wasn't until 26 weeks this time that I felt noticably pregnant and felt my bump getting in the way. Up until then I could still comfortably lie on my stomach. Now my bump is in the way all the time.

    First baby it was after 25 weeks. This time around 19 weeks :)

    It just felt like my normal belly but rounder really, lol. Now I can just feel body parts and its mainly rock hard cos of that.

    I could still sleep on my belly at 26/27 weeks so that just shows how soft it was! I really just looked flabby until the late 20's. I didn't even tell work until 24 weeks and noone had noticed :-0

    I had a lot of bloat very early on, but that went and left me with a lil bump around 14 weeks, it was hardish but i could sleep on it until around 17 weeks, i used to roll on to it in my sleep then get kicked awake.

    Its now very hard but baby is lying with it's back against my belly button.

    Try not too worry too much, I know how you feel I had a MMC @ 9 weeks and much easier said than done, but everything will be fine, you just have to believe that :hugs:
