Cos mine is. <depressed>

Is it a hormone thing? I honestly am not eating more than usual. Does it mean I am having a boy? <hopes>

Yes it can and no, I had a girl when my arse grew!

Christ, Yes! (that's the arse) I did get a boy though <<<fingers crossed>> XX

yes, and but unlike the belly it stays the same way after the birth - not that my belly went down actually!!!!

I had a girl and didn't grow as much backwards as my friend who had a huge bum and a boy.

3 times times up duff.

x2 huge arse both girls third time no arse but what there was dropped to back of knees (still occupies that position) and as I am sure you guessed by now that one was a boy. Sorry!

Definitely huge arse - had a girl!

Not so huge arse - expecting a boy! smile

think of it as balancing out the bumo so you can walk without falling over

Have had 4 boys and 1 girl and that was the only pregnancy that my arse grew almost as big as my bump!

My arse feels a bit thinner today, must have been the clothes I was wearing yesterday. Must remember that maternity jeans with no belt are a cardinal sin.

I will find it in 3 weeks whether bump is blue or pink so if it is blue, it is definitely a hormone thing.

Huge arse - hoping it will return to normal eventually (but it was never that small iykwim) I'm with effie though it has had to grow to balance out enormous bowling ball bump (ds and no3 child)
