    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

    While it differs for every woman, mine started to feel like a bump not a one-too-many-doughnut-tummy around 16-17 weeks. The real thing started to show over clothes close to 19th week. Do not worry, 9 weeks is too early. As per my OB, if you have a belly so early, it is mostly gas.

    I think I started to get a belly around 15 weeks - ive attached a progression shot before 15 weeks it was quite squishy (my uterus was all very low) and if I lay down it just dissapeared!

    The second picture is me now at 22 weeks

    My bump has just started, I am almost 16 weeks and people can see it now if I wear a tight top! I had to go to maternity trousers this week as my other ones would just not do up at all! x

    25 weeks here and still have a B-bump that looks like I'm just fat. I'm not sure if I will "pop" per say at this point.

    I've got a noticeable bump at 16+5 although it started about 2 weeks ago. I was a uk 10-12 pre preg and this is my 3rd preg (second ended in mc at 11 weeks)

    I went shopping yesterday and was asked about when I was due a few times so it must look like a baby belly!

    I've been feeling full kicks since mon and my belly is hard to touch xx

    I've got a really big tum at only 16 weeks! I dread to think how big I will be at even 26 weeks! I had a bit of a podgy belly before I got pregnant and I thought I wouldn't be able to see a bump in there for just ages but nope, big, pregnant round tum!!
