Growing BumpTuesday, 23 February 2016
When I was pregnant with Mia I slowly started showing around 12 weeks but with Elliw I started showing around 10 weeks. With this third pregnancy I am bigger in my weight so I didn't show as early as Elliw, but I knew there was a change as I could feel it but I knew no one else would notice. My partner noticed around 12 - 13 weeks because my bump was quite hard. But otherwise I don't think my bump was properly visible to everybody else until I was roughly 16 odd weeks pregnant.
The past week I do feel like I have 'popped out'! The photos I have uploaded on my personal Facebook and my 17 week pregnancy update, people have noticed the big change in my bump. I am loving my maternity leggings at the minute as they are just so comfortable. I am fitting into the same sized clothes but I feel more comfortable in my maternity tops and bottoms.
It has shocked me with how big I am already at only 18 weeks pregnant. My partner is even shocked! We are both a little worried to how big I will get (lol!). I was pretty big with Elliw so it will be quite interesting to see if I will be even bigger this time. I am hoping it isn't a sign that baby is going to be bigger than Elliw because her birth weight was a wooping 9lbs 8oz and I really don't fancy pushing a bigger baby out of me! Oops! I am having growth scans every couple of weeks during the end so they will see then how baby is growing.
