I know it’s different for everybody and some days I look 5 months pregnant, but on average when does the little bump appear? I also have a wedding at 21 weeks. Again I know this varies from person to person but from your own experiences how big is the bump by than. I will be waiting to do the dress shopping till the last minute but would the bump be still a bit small for proper maternity wear. I really have no patience at all.

It was around 17 weeks when I started rounding out. We had a do at 22 weeks and I remember I wore maternity trousers for the first time but just a normal long top. Enjoy the wedding!

I woke up one morning at 24 weeks and had a small bump - up until that point, there was no sign of anything and it really was that sudden - everyone at work commented on it. I myself, felt a little round on it from about 22/23 weeks. I'm apparently still 'neat' at 37 weeks though not feeling entirley neat at the moment. Suppose everyone's different and a lot depends on your pre-pregnancy weight (I was a 12/14 before so not a real skinny thing!). Think I was in maternity trousers around week 24/25 though I bought mat jeans at weeks 21 as ordinary jeans felt tight. Still finding that most maternity clothes are too big but determined not to buy anymore with only a few weeks to go - just have to keep hiking the jeans up and I invested in a bump band which has been brill.

I have a bump since about 10 weeks but am really, really showing now - no denying it, id say i'll be huge by 21 weeks! one thing though my bum seems to a bit smaller but maybe thats because the bump at front looks bigger :o0

I'm a bit like rocky I bought mat clothes as pre pg clothes no longer fit. I thought could just buy bigger and not look pg, just look bigger or by pg clothes and look pg, I opted to by the mat clothes, but I def look pg in them althought the trousers are still a little big, my own are more than a little small

I would have thought just in the last week, but people have been passing comment for about the last three weeks! Don't have a nice well-defined bump yet but have a big belly that is starting to get that unique pregnant shape. And am in maternity trousers since last week - they're great!

On my first child did not wear alot of maternity clothes. Think I wore my owm clothes till week 24 or 25. But on second and third, I needed to wear maternity clothes from about week 17. I am 24 weeks now and still have them on the tighest setting. Get clothes that you can adjust the waist settings. That way they grow with you. I should think that you will need maternity clothes by week 21. Even just for comfort. Jen2

first time round i got my tiny bump after 21 weeks but every one is different. If you are slim you probably won't get a bump until at least after 20 weeks and even then it will be small.
