Hi Helen! I started to show at about 20 wks this pregnancy, but didn't show until about 24 wks in first pregnancy. Some people show really early on though. It must just depend on you size and shape. I'm normally a size 10 and 5ft 7". Hope that helps, Love Rachel XXX

I was a size 14 before pregnancy and started showing at about 15-16 weeks. Until then I didn't show at all but my bump kind of shot out. However I don't think it was very obvious, u could only really tell from the side. xxx

Hi, with my first pregnancy and this one i started to show quite early (between 9-10wks), and like Zoey I have a HUGE bump now and people are always commenting on how I look much bigger than 22wks. (Er hello is it any of ur business, ha ha ha). Think everyone is different tho so dnt worry to much. Kerry xxx

I didn't start to show until about 18 weeks althought I am 23 weeks now and would still say my bump is quite small but noticeable I'm looking forward to waddling around but I know it will be a nightmare lol

i found it a struggle to do my trousers up at around 10wks and just wore a bump band over the top - i wouldnt say i was showing (just looked like i ate too many pies!) but around 16wks was when i had a definite bump i think!

Hi, I looked like I had a bit of a spare tyre which formed a very small bump at 16-17 weeks and my boobs grew around the same time! Hubby and I both think I now look pregnant but others only notice if I'm wearing a fitted top or they already know. I love having a bump even though its still small xx

my clothes started feeling tight about 8 weeks this time, but I don't think it looks that big yet but a friend says it's really shot out in the last week.
I was a 12/14, more like a 12 now!

I started to really show in the last 2 weeks or so (am 21 weeks tomorrow). I have a round bump at the front. I am usually a size 8. In some clothes you can't really tell still tho!

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
