    When did you all start to get a bump?? I'm so excited for mine and just wondering what it'll feel like! We have a family wedding and I'll be 21 weeks - hoping I'll have a little bump to show off ;)

    Did your bump appear overnight like everyone says :) xxx

    It depends on how good your stomach muscles are before hand and everyone's different of course. I didn't have a flat stomach beforehand but this is my bump at 15 weeks and 20 weeks

    It also depends how tall you are. Taller people hide their bumps more than shorter people theirs more room for baby to stretch out. I'm 5 ft 6.5 and didn't start showing until well after 20 weeks and it looked just like bloat x

    I'm 5'3 and had a full term sized bump at 31 weeks, apparently due to being short and not having much space!

    Looking back I guess I *really* started showing at about 25 weeks

    But I felt very different long before that, I could see a difference by about 17 weeks.

    I started to show at about 15 weeks. Now a day off 21 weeks and have to wear maternity trousers and tops shall we say!
    Feel like I am huge now, so what is going to happen later on?!
    My bump settles down a bit when I lie on my back, but standing it's unavoidable!

    Unfortunately I still have a bit of the first bump so I'm not sure what the second one will look like

    I thought I started showing at about 11 weeks but when I look at photos now there was nothing there! I think it was just because I was feeling so bloated and uncomfortable at that stage.
    Looking back at my timeline, the first noticeable bump was at 14 weeks. Between weeks 21 and 23 I think I doubled in size and haven't slowed down since!!
