Ok am 17 weeks pregnant in my first pregnancy and in the last 10 days or so my bump has gotten huge and i now look about 6 months pregnant! Just below my boobs is rock hard so yesterday i called my maternity unit to just ask is this normal, and she says come on in we will have a look at you.
I go in and see the midwife whom i found awful at my 16 week appointment who keeps asking me where is this pain, depite 3 times telling her i have no pain. She felt me and said yes hard when standing up, when im led down it feels totally normal. Do i have history of hernia etc of which i say no.
So she sent me home saying basically i have weak muscles, am going to be very big and i need to go out and buy myself a support belt for the bump!
we heard bubs heartbeat it took ages to find it this time, the last 2 times they put doplar on me and picked it up straight away.
I dont like this midwife and i dont think i trust her either should i be worried??
I am 17 weeks to and i am also huge, i am fully in maternity clothes now, i was huge with my dd to so was expecting to be big with this one to x On the other hand my friend is also 17 weeks and doesnt even have a tiny bump. Mine also is hard when stood up and soft when sat down, and seems to get harder as the day goes on!
