This is my first, I was super bloated initially and mine just turned into a bump, its just a little bigger than it was at 8 weeks.

I thought I was getting a belly sooner with my second because the bloat had me looking like my 22-24 ish weeks with my first by the time I was 13 weeks with my second but by 15 weeks I had a super flat tummy again.

I bloated really early on also with this pregnancy (2nd) around 5-6 weeks. It never went away. Just turned into a bump.

It shrank but morphed into a bump eventually. Same with my third, but I'm getting bigger each time which kinda worries me lol

Good to know I'm not the only one! I feel kind of stupid though cos people ask how far along I am and I'm like "almost 7 weeks" and their eyes almost pop out of their head cos I look so much bigger :/

ae9b43402d28aaade877b6af13d738eb.jpgHere is my 8 week bloat....it turned into a real bump by 12 weeks.  I started with a very flat tummy, so this was a lot of bloat for me.  I am 19 weeks tomorrow and it is very obvious now, no way to hid it. I go back to work in four weeks (I work at a school) and they don't know I am prego yet.....going to be kind of awkward, lol. It was too early to tell them at the end of the school year......
