Anyone else this big at 32 weeks? There is only 1 in there. I feel like an unsexy whale monster right now and still 8 weed till due date so I'm probably going to get A LOT bigger!

The pic is crap and in black and white to try to reduce the stretch mark appearance. It hasn't worked well confused

I had a small bump but I didn't grow much after 30 weeks so you might not get much bigger.

FWIW you look fine. And I have more stretch marks despite only gaining 17lbs.

Aw love you sepa! I'm in the same boat as you, measuring 36 weeks at 33 weeks!

Do you find you get bigger/bloat as the day goes on?

You shouldn't get much bigger now, baby continues to grow and take up the space in there but you should slow down from next week or so the Dr told me! Not that it helps at all as we still have to carry the weight for the next few weeks! Lol

Sending you hugs and make sure you make the time to put your feet up!!

Ifitzgerald - I do feel as though I get better. I hope it's doesn't get much bigger I have people ALL THE TIME asking if it's twins!

When I was last measured the obstetrician said I was at the top of how big I should be measuring (I think I was 3cm over the average or something)

Haha I've been getting that for a few weeks, so annoying! now I get people saying, Ooooo you must be due any day! I wish!

I'm the opposite I'm not sure which is worse but people comment either way! My second daughter I had too much water and everyone said how massive I was! Sympathies xx

I was at the Gp yesterday getting my bump measured as everyone kept commenting on how huge I am. Bump measured bang on 33 weeks as it should be.

sepa I think you look great! That looks about right to me - I'm not much smaller than that at 27 weeks!! smile

My friend had twins last year and she had a tiny bump, all bumps are different, as for measurements they are so easily wrong, and as much as you feel like a whale(which is also what I say about myself) all bumps are a beautiful thing! flowers

It's so weird as I like other people's bumps and thought I would really like my pregnancy bump I just struggle with it (but love that I have my baby in there)
I think part of it is to do with people just touching it though!

36 weeks- was half the size with my previous pregnancy when i had her at 37+4 smile

Mine (32wks) is a bit smaller overall but projects further out if that makes sense. i got muddy the other day trying to squeeze between a couple of cars as I had misjudged the extra clearance needed. My sister was a lot bigger at the same stage recently (though both measuring in normal range) and was peeved with the about to pop comments. I think it is easier for me as I am wrapped up against the weather where she was at the same stage in August.

Newlywed you have a lovey neat sized bum

LBOCS2 Fri 15-Jan-16 17:05:53

...p?!

Issie339 Fri 15-Jan-16 17:56:32

I feel your pain, I'm 30 weeks and look massive, at least 8 months pregnant! Plus it looks like a ridiculous comedy bump, exactly like a football shoved up my jumper. Apparently I'm measuring about bang on where I should be so I have no idea what's going on.

Impatientwino Fri 15-Jan-16 18:09:55

I'm 31 weeks measuring 33 weeks with dc2 but I look similar to you in my undies.

This was my bump on Monday

Newlywed123 Fri 15-Jan-16 19:55:48

Thank you sepa

Think my bump is all baby.. I've used this pregnancy y as an excuse to eat rubbish and its all gone to my chin, hips and bum blush big mistake!

Chloe16 Fri 15-Jan-16 21:05:04

Feeling it

Chloe16 Fri 15-Jan-16 21:06:43

I feel like a giant at the minute but I know it'll all be worth it! 30+4 at the min lol

Everythinggettingbigger Fri 15-Jan-16 21:43:46

I love bump pics 😊 I'm now 21 weeks and twice the size this was 16 weeks! Yes there is only 1 in there!

Sepa you look beautiful

TriJo Sat 16-Jan-16 11:43:59

Not massively far away from the bump size in the OP - I'm 31 weeks tomorrow. No new stretchmarks though - I'm an ex-fatty (used to be nearly 100kg @ 165cm) and it just feels like I'm filling out my old skin!

Buttwing Sat 16-Jan-16 16:20:11

I think you all look beautiful! With dc4 I measured 52cm at 40 weeks I wish I had taken pictures! People would stop and stare I'm a size 10/12 normAlly, even the midwife would laugh when I went to appointmentSblush

lozengeoflove Sat 16-Jan-16 23:38:21

You've got to be joking. My bump is slightly bigger and I'm 27 weeks tomorrow (DC2). You have a lovely bump. Don't fret too much. It won't stay like that for long.

Babybrain32 Sun 17-Jan-16 06:38:44

I was that big at 24 weeks, now 27 and still growing.

Mslg Sun 17-Jan-16 17:02:56

All of you are beautiful pregnant ladies! I'm actually looking forward to the stage when I have a proper bump and not just a constipation induced/food baby bump 😞
