34 weeks midwife appointment?

I have mine this afternoon. Is it just the same as all the others or should I expect anything else?

Also I'm a little concerned that my bump isn't really growing. I've measured okay at appointments which I'm surprised about because I've lost weight due to continuing healthy eating/exercise and I look small. Would you mention it? Is it something to be concerned about if I'm measuring ok? I've attached 2 pics of me at 34 weeks pregnant.

If your worried mention it to your mw

Is this your first baby?

If you're worried, mention it to the midwife. They would rather that you ask questions instead of bottling it up. If they think it is a cause of concern, they will most likely schedule for scans. Every woman is different. My bump was noticeable from about 16 weeks onwards lol. Plus, the size of your bump can depend on if this is your first, how strong your stomach muscles are, how tall you, and other stuff I can't remember. It can also just be really random!

also, good for you for being able to exercise! I couldn't keep at it while i was pregnant (first too nauseous, then too exhausted).
