    Hi all,

    I am of a plus size, and have so far had a few people mistake my belly for a bump 🙈

    So my question is, when did all you plus sized mummies see your bump starting to form? The bottom of my belly is definitely different to normal in that it isn't hanging (sorry, TMI!)

    It might make me feel more pregnant, as I have gotten to the stage of being blissfully unaware I am pregnant due to no symptoms at all 😁

    The top of my belly is growing but the bottom bit is saggy, I just look fatter than usual! I'm a size 20, I wish I looked pregnant!

    In my first pregnancy I never looked pregnant. In my second I was a lot thinner and was in maternity clothes around 14 weeks. This time I'm bigger that I've ever been - BMI was over 39 at booking - and with the help of bumpbands and the right clothes I've looked pregnant since around 17 weeks x

    Mine popped out at 13 weeks, but I'm not sure if people think "fat or pregnant" I kinda make a point of stroking it haha! To be fair a few people have said "I thought you had a bump but I didn't want to say incase I was wrong" xxxx

    I'm a plus size mum also I'm only 10-11 weeks pregnant at the mo so no sign of bump. I'm a size 18-20 but on slimming world and slowly but surely losing the pounds. I hate that my bump doesn't show as early as the little skinnys do lol xx

    Thanks ladies! I am a size 16 normally, top half is definitely looking very much like a bump!

    I went swimming today, and it was beautiful just swimming along and being able to feel a bump at the bottom!

    I must admit I am jealous of all the not plus sized ladies getting bumps earlier!
