I found out at 2-3 weeks and was showing at 5 weeks. I’m not slim, I’m heavy bottomed and very large chested but always had a flat tummy hour glass shape. So As soon as I bloated out you could see. We had to announce earlier than 10 weeks as I was showing to much.
I’m 5 ft 4
Only twice once when I was about 16 weeks was in the supermarket car park when a lady asked me how long I had left, when I told her “A while” she was shocked then asked if it was twins. Then when my SO returned she turned to him and said “What you been doing to the poor girl?” .. I thought it was funny.
The other time at 21 weeks we were at the pub with a large group of friends and I was sipping my mango juice when one of SO old friends he’d not seen in a while, a bloke who had previously been hitting me about a year ago, before me and SO met. Glanced at me, trying to figure out how he knew me.. then turned to my SO and said “Pip!!!!!! Is that yours?!?!” and pointed at my tummy. Everyone laughed at the bluntness of it, he didn’t mean in it in a harsh way was just bad chioce of words haha.
I’ve never bought maternity clothes, my mum used to be a UK size 28-30 but has recently lost 5 stone ( Slimming World ) and I’ve been walking around in them haha. The swamp me but in the house who cares? When we go out I wear my normal dresses that were pulled in under bust that would show off my chest and tiny waist, now they flow nicely over bump.
