I wasn't doing either at 7weeks.

Depends on the person.

When your uterus isn't behind your pelvic bone any more. Around 12 weeks it will pop up, and once your baby gets a bit bigger, you'll be showing

i am twelve weeks today, and mainly bloated! but just above my pelvic area i can see/feel a specific little bump that is harder than the rest of my tummy! i am hoping that the bloat goes away soon, otherwise i am just going to transition from bloat to bump! haha :] BUT, if you think about it the bloat is due to being pregnant, so it can count as a preggo belly bump ;]

Bloating looks pudgy and showing is rounded, lol. I couldn't stand it! Get a belly band, that way it smooths your tummy out so you can relax and let it out, lol.

I still only look like I'm pregnant if I'm bloated. I'll be 18 weeks on Saturday.
