    Hi girls!!



    I have just started to notice hardening and slight 'shaping' just above the pubic line (?) and around. Is that the first of starting to show?

    TIA!!

    tia, i take it you are quite slim? sounds like that is the start of it!!

    i have a bit of a pot belly and what happened with me was it went hard, and now is sticking right out.

    I agree with Min sounds like you were thin to start of with like myself. I popped at 8 weeks but it was only noticeable to myself and DH, I obviously popped out at 15 weeks when people started noticing, then started getting back ache as well.

    Take Care

    I am still waiting for mine to pop, maybe it wan't happen. It is definitely shallower than it was but I don't have any of those signs.

    Sorry, I thought we were talking belly buttons. My belly has definitely popped majorly in the last few weeks. I am looking very pregnant now.

    Im 9 weeks and 2 days and I have a belly already. I have been in denial for the past week because I thought it wasnít possible this early. I canít even fit into any of my pants any more, im finding it a little embarrassing actually. People are asking me how far along I am and looking a little shocked when I tell them only 9 weeks.
    How can I have a baby belly when the baby is only approx 2 cm????? I feel like a fraud haha.

    I am not too sure if my belly has popped yet. I know that I cant do up pants and skirts like I used to so maybe it already has?! But when I suck it in, it looks like it used to but with more of a bump under the belly button... so I kinda think I havent popped yet cause if I had, then I shouldnt be able to suck it in!

    My first baby I didn't show until I was 5 and half months, with this one I am showing already and I am only 12 weeks!! Although I love the fact that it has popped out, people think I have packed on the pounds. Alot of people tread carefully becuase you don't want to make the worst foot in mouth mistake ever which is asking if someone is pregnant and they are NOT! So i just tell everyone now.

    LOL Renee! I dont think you are getting fat then. I think it just depends on what everyones opinion of 'popping out' is. To me popping out is when you have the definite round baby bump and to someone else it could be when they cant do up their pants anymore!
