    Just curious when you all first noticed that you had even a little bump (you, not to other people)... I don't remember when I first got the bump when pregnant with DS, and I can't find any early pics either! I don't think I started taking belly pics until much later. Anyway I am 9 weeks today, and I know it's probably too early, but I don't even have a hint of a bump. I just get paranoid because one of the reasons how I knew I had a missed m/c last time is that I was supposed to be 11-12 weeks and still hadn't had any bump. So, needless to say, I'm on complete belly watch... :haha:

    I had a bump by 10 weeks. I'm still 3lbs lighter than when I found out I was expecting, but my pants are still too tight to wear. It's a big pooch right above the pubic bone.

    I forgot to say I am also quite thin and a bit underweight (losing even more this first tri) so wouldn't I show sooner??

    This is my 2nd baby, I'm 8 weeks, and the last couple days I've been noticing the tiniest bump above the pubic bone. It's not very big, but I can definatly notice it, as well as my husband. It's still early but its there, and this definatly is no bloat!

    I noticed at 13 weeks :) Probably before then but bloat was so up and down. Once I hit 13 weeks I felt there was a deffo a bump. Even if to everyone else it just looked like too many pies. :dohh:

    This is my first and I really didn't notice anything til maybe about 20wks.
    But I am taller so I figure thats probably why.

    I started noticing a bump around 10.5/11 weeks. I'll be 13 weeks on Thursday and it's more noticeable. People that know I am pregnant notice that I'm starting to show, but a complete stranger off the street would never be able to tell.

    i'm 13 weeks. I'd say i'm just over medium height and have a slim waist but i'm not petite in terms of bone structure or hips! I've not got a bump yet and have measured my waist and its not got bigger. I have had a bump when constipated but thats it. I had a scan yesterday and all is fine so I wouldn't worry.

    I am average height and average to slim weight, and just about 12 weeks. No bump yet, even when I feel around my abdomen with my hands. I am just about 2 pounds heavier than before so my jeans do feel a little tighter though.
    My DH thinks I have a bump but I don't. My lower abdomen has ALWAYS pouched out. (I even measured it-no change!) Needless to say I am pretty annoyed that he seems to think I am bigger :)

    7.5 weeks and i'm becoming aware that bean might be showing in the next couple of weeks, so i'm on belly watch, too. Exciting! However my fella is convinced i already am. He doesn't get the bloat thing. 'You ARE looking a little tubbier' he said the other night. I try not to take it personally. Haha!
