Post subject: when will i get my bump?
Hi, this is my first ever forum experience. I am 11 and half weeks gone and have a scan tomorrow. I had a miscarriage last October and I am so pleased to get to this stage without problems.
I woke up yesterday feeling very anxious about scan as I cant feel my bump coming yet. I have felt firm from about 6 weeks but wondered if I should be feeling more of a bump growing yet? This is my second child and my daughter is 8, so I cant really remember what I should feel like at mo. I guess I am worried that my baby is not growing and if I have a scan, it will not show a heart beat.
Anyone help on this subject?

I think everyone is different and it also depends on if its your first or second. As this is your second you should show a bit earlier than you did last time. I have read that you can start to show from 10-12 weeks, although some women don't start to show until about 18 weeks. So I wouldn't worry and just look forward to your scan.
Hope the scan goes well.

everybody is different and it depends on how your body works i suppose! i get quite envious of all the ladies that dont seem to have a bump until later on!!
throughout both my pregnancies iv ballooned! with my 1st son i went from size 6 - 20, 8st 3lb to 14st 7lb and showed a bump at 5 weeks.
im 39 weeks with 2nd son and have gone from size 8 - 22, 9st - 14st and showed at 4 weeks! but both babies were/ are going to be big - my 1st son was 9lb and they reckon this one will tip the scales at 11 - 12lb!
i had to buy maternity clothes very early on and have now outgrown them completey - hubby keeps joking that wrapping my legs in cellophane would look more comfortable than the maternity trousers im wearing and my nickname is "The Oak" as my thighs resemble tree trunks! so for the last few months all i wear is hubby's pj bottoms and my dad's old t-shirts....feel sooooooooo glamorous! enjoy your slim figures while they last!!

everyone is different with my first i didnt start to show till after approx 20 weeks this time i doun out i was preg at 4 weeks 6 daysish and started forming a bump more or less within a few weeks
someone i know who had her first baby when i had mine is on her second pregnancy as well and shes still not showing and she is about 25 weeks gone she is still skinny as anything or was a couple of weeks ago..
it all depends on your body so theres no need to worry
