    With my first two pregnancies I didn't show at all until about 25 weeks then within a week I just exploded and ended up massive by 9 months, but with this one, from 4 weeks I've started to show, and I'm quite big now. I'm still managing to wear my normal T-shirts and tops, but they are REALLY tight around the stomach and there is no doubt I'm pregnant when looking at me.

    How has your 2nd Trimester gone ?

    Yes I'm defo showing. I am wearing some maternity clothes but am also still wearing my normal leggings.

    With my son I had excess fluid and my bump was massive, and it is quite big this time and this pregnancy has been alot worse than my first so am worried lightning will strike twice. I can't handle another massive bump lol

    This is my first (mc at 5wks a few yrs ago, and chemical in 09) but I've never been this pregnant.
    I've had a small bump since about 8-10wks and now at 13wks I have a definite bump. Its small but its noticeable! I'm already in maternity tops as all my regular tops are too tight on my belly now.

    I'm going to be the size of a whale!

    Me too, I was bloated from about 5 weeks but had a small bump from 11 weeks. I'm now in maternity trousers and some of my tops are getting too tight. Yay for the bump!

    I'm definitely showing! I'd say I looked properly pregnant from around 15/16 weeks and now bump is rather large and rock solid! x x

    I'm sitting here now watching the TV and have had to lift my top up to let my bump "out", because it was so tight!

    I think I'll need to get into my maternity tops full time pretty soon!

    On the trousers topic, I can't wear my jeans anymore, so I'm just wearing skirts most of the time.

    Yeah they are short, and my mother doesn't approve, but they are comfy to wear, so that is all that matters! I don't hear my husband complaining either :lol:

    I'll have to look into getting some of those. My short skirts are fine just now but when my bump gets big I don't want to be walking around showing all my legs off.

    My husband just ran me a nice bath so I'll enjoy that then have a look online.

    The only 'normal' clothes that still fit me are my leggings, I've been in maternity jeans since christmas when I stopped being able to button up my jeans. I have three pairs, two over-the-bump bootlegs, and one under the bump skinny jeans. They're a lifesaver!
    For work I stick to leggings and long tops usually.
    I've got a few maternity tops, but there's so much available just now that can work as maternity wear like smock tops and oversized shirts that you can find loads.

    Here's my bump last week at 13 weeks:

    I am definitely showing but I think it doesnt look like a pregnant bump, just a lot of belly weight!

    I wear a lot of floaty dresses normally anyway, so I can still wear these easily - havent toughed jeans in months!

    Just for an experiment I tried putting my jeans on today, and it sounded like a porn movie or something :lol:

    Nope, I'm not going to bother again!

    Pmsl!

    I've always wore very low cut jeans so I can still get into mine, but sitting down in them is not fun!! X

    I've managed to get back into my low cut jeans in the last couple of weeks as bump has moved up, but any other jeans are almost impossible now. Going to have to cave in and buy some maternity jeans next week. I'm really running out of clothing options now and I don;t like leggings as I hate anything clinging to my bum! I'm happy that bump is starting to stick out now though....still small but ladies at work noticed it yesterday :)

    I'm always sitting with my buttons undone these days! I can just about do my jeans up when I'm standing but when I sit down it's so uncomfortable. Really must get to the shops
