when did you pop?

when did you pop?

Postby alibrooke » Mon Jan 05, 2015 11:08 am

Hi all

just about 13 weeks preg and barely a bump to show for it. i know this is normal... not worried, just curious, when did you all "pop"? this is my first pregnancy so i know it could take some time... should i expect to see a bump in the next few weeks or so?

It was about 21-22 weeks before I really looked pregnant. I started wearing maternity clothes around then or a little after.

Goodness I am only 10 weeks and I feel like a beached whale! I have been eating healthily, I even lost a few pounds in my first few weeks with bad nausea, but my stomach is sticking out so much I am glad to be working from home so my co-workers don´t notice.

I wonder if it is just a bloat or if my uterus is maybe tilting forward? The bloat in first few weeks was flat in mornings and only bad at night whereas this is constant - and I´m not constipated. Definte rounded belly.

I am also normal weight for my height, not under or over, usually a UK size 10, so not sure why I would be showing so early. Worrying I am going to be one of those women who is gigantic and never loses the weight!

With my DD I didn't really start to show until around 21-22 weeks, and now with this pregnancy I am 18 weeks and already showing... My guess would be you have another 4-8 weeks, depending on your current height/weight :)

This is my first - I'm usually a UK size 10 and previously had pretty tight stomach muscles! I felt like I was showing from about 18 weeks but I'd say I popped properly at about 22/23 weeks. No mistaking this for bloat/a big dinner now! I've attached a little collage I made - the first picture was 7th November (16 weeks 2 days), and the last one was yesterday (25 weeks 2 days). As you can see there's quite a big difference!

Hi Ali,

We have the same due date! I've been wondering when I'd actually look pregnant, too, because right now I just look like I need to do some sit ups! My boyfriend lifted up my shirt and asked, "Where's the baby??" I'm pretty small and always thought that meant I would show earlier but not yet.

Emford-

Yay a due date buddy!!
My husband and I realized yesterday that our very first date was July 17th, so we are secretly hoping the baby waits a day to make his/her appearance :)

I actually begun what I think is my bump this week!! I wore a tight tank under a blazer yesterday (with my maternity jeans that i've been in since about 10 wks prego!) and several people commented that I popped overnight! I still think I look like I have just eaten a burger (or 4) but think by the end of this month I might actually have a real, legit baby bump! I am also petite (5'1, 102 lbs pre prego), so I think that had alot to do with it, and I am also not entire convinced it's not from all the carbs I've been eating.. ha! But it's exciting!

Hi Ali,

I'm 5'2", 133 pounds, which is what I was pre-pregnancy, haven't gained a pound yet. And of course it's just your bump, no way is it because of carbs, ;)! I'm new to TTW but if it's ok, I'm gonna see if there's a way I can keep up with you on here. Here's to a remaining healthy and happy pregnancy for all us ladies!

I think the pop for me came at 16+1...I literally noticed it sticking out more that afternoon. And my husband and best friend both commented a few days ago "you look so much more pregnant than you did just a week ago!" Maybe that's a little early, I don't know...but seems true for me!

18 weeks really. I mean I could tell before that and if I wore a super skin tight tank or something someone might wonder ( but its winter so none of that going on). Now I am halfway between 18 and 19 weeks and its starting to get more difficult to hide at work (I work with kids, staff all know but kids don't yet). I figure within the next couple weeks it'll start to be impossible to hide it.
