    Default are you starting to show?

    Just wondering if anyone is starting to show yet, and how far along if you are. With Jackson I started to show around 10 weeks, and was visibly pregnany by 12 weeks.



    I am a very short person, and if I put on weight it always gathers around my middle. This time round I am probably 10kg overweight, and I do still have some extra weight around my middle, but I just can't suck it in anymore, a couple of weeks ago, I could take a breath and hold it in, but now it is not budging! I am actually starting to look PG already, is this crazy? I know things can happen a lot earlier second time round, but this seems way too early...maybe i am further along than I thought?

    Hi Min,
    I too found i was showing alot earlier this time around. I was about 12 weeks when i looked preg, Now i look like im about 8 months when im only really 5 and a half months! I just say that this bub is happy and healthy and that he is going to be big! (well my hips are killing me so i think he will be!!)
    Goodluck with the rest of your pregnancy and i hope you have the pink vibes.

    Hi all bulging bellies!

    This is my 3rd pregnancy, second baby, I'm just over 6 weeks and I've been showing since I was just over 4 weeks!

    I'm also short, and what I found with all my pregnancies is my tummy, after I've eaten lunch buldges from under my boobs.

    I think this is also because our tummies are sensitive to the HCG hormones hence extra bloating, and there is no where for the organs to go in the smaller mums.

    When I was 10 weeks with Patrick when my Obs said that my uterus was just under my belly button and he said I was showing early for a first time mum, but being short in the torso didn't help my chances in that department.

    The other thing I've noticed is my boobs are huge in the first trimester, like they're ready a bit too early for breast feeding. They didn't work for Patrick so I look at these huge things and think they are a waste of space but my DH doesn't of course!

    I've been wondering how I am going to hold it in and keep this surprise from Family and work until the 13 week scan. We have a scan tomorrow to just make sure things are cooking well this time because of my last experience, but I am quietly confident that I'll see a nice blob and heart beat!

    I've had feelings of twins!!!!!! So may be 2 heart beats, which would be a shock but I'm more excited at that prospect at the moment than no heart beat at all.

    It's really common to pop out a lot earlier once you've been stetched. Just have to try and suck it in until you can tell people. You'll probably find that once you do tell people, they'll say they've been suspicious anyway, but who cares, it's all fun and exciting!

    Hi min,
    congratulations again! I measured my tummy yesterday and it is measuring 80cm. I looked in my diary from my preg with Hendrix and that was the same as i was measuring at 15 weeks and im only 9 weeks!! It feels really unusual trying to hide the bump when last time all i could do was hope to have a bump that someone would notice!

    Hi! So glad to hear there are other early bumps out there! I'm a towering 5'2", and most recently 55kg at 11wks 5 days with first bub. Started noticing a distinct lack of room in previously comfy pants at 9wks, and now I just can't suck it in anymore! Gone up a trouser size begrudgingly. Just another, ahem, advantage to being a shorty I guess!

    I started to notice a bit of a belly at 6wks but I hadn't really lost that post baby belly. By 9wks I was wearing my belly band by 12wks people were asking me when I was due (which I didn't want to tell them as it was so far away). I love my baby belly but today I was working at a school and there was another lady there who is due about 3-4wks after me and you could barely tell she was pg whereas here I am pleased I bought so much maternity wear cause I am def getting the use out of it!

    How should your lower belly feel at 7 weeks... mine is quite firm when im standing , This is my second pregnancy the first one ended at 10 weeks and it was ages ago so this is really like my first.

    my little crease is flattening out . Is it to early for this to be happening ?

    when im lying down i can feel it is a bit firmer low down on the right side (hoping this is where the little one is attached)
