Hi guys 39+3 today with my third and I have my smallest bump yet. Finding it hard to believe I’m due when I haven’t got the huge bump this time.
I thought you were supposed to get bigger with each pregnancy??
I know baby could still be bigger than previous two but I just find it strange to be smaller.
Anyone else’s bumps get smaller the more you had?

It could just be sitting much lower?

Thank you for replying
Yes you could be right Midwife said baby in a tight ball but I expected it to straighten at some point.

I was smaller with my 3rd than with my 2nd - prob same as with my 1st.

My consultant told me that statistically 2nd babies are biggest - if you have more than 2 then the babies start getting smaller again. Was true for me.
