Silly question I recon but if your belly is massive does that mean I can go into lain our sooner?

Hello ladies!
I'm 34 weeks but I'm honestly massive! I've not put much on weight anywhere else but my belly sticks out by a mile it seems! Mw says baby is measuring fine and I don't have excessive fluids inside or anything... Everyone asks if I'm carrying twins (not the case) and I just feel my body won't be abler to stretch much further than it already has... Any one knows if belly size matters at all? Thank u all in advance! Xxx

Header should read: into labour sooner... Typo... sad

I hate to break this to you, but you will grow bigger still. Seriously, beached whale size of huge. Everyone does.

I'm similar - only 23 weeks but enormous and getting twin comments!

I remember last time around not understanding how the other ladies at my antenatal classes were so big, but you grow exponentially in the last 4-5 weeks.

Sorry - I know that's not what you wanted to hear!

My bump got huge and I went 12 days over. Sadly I don't think your bump size has any bearing on when you go into labour!

Aww... All my hopes are gone... smile oh well I trust baby will come when he's ready... Just hope I won't be overdue... Thanks you for your comments! Xxx
