She is due "autumn". Looking at her she is about the same size as me, due mid October. How is that huge?!?!

Because 'here is a normal sized bump' isn't quite the DM attention-grabbing, weight-obsessed headline they usually plump for?

How many of the links on the right hand side of that page link to stories about weight? Is there any news of the news variety to be had?

No she doesn't look "huge" but I seem to think she is fairly petite heightwise, which tends to make your bump look bigger because it's got nowhere else to go other than out!

I was wondering how much was down to her frame - she is teeny and doesn't seem to have gained any other weight either.

They are freakishly obsessed with weight on there.

Oh god glad I'm not famous because if I were pg the headlines would be PLUMBUMMUM HOUSING QUADS IN HER BUMPgrin

looks normal to me, pretty small for seven months if anything.

grin Who on earth writes this crap - I notice the piece is not named, it is by "Daily Mail Reporter". Whoever it is has obviously never actually seen a pg woman.

I've always liked SMG

as someone with a petite frame (very short too) I looked like a bus very quickly, I had random strangers asking me if I was having twins after they'd ask my due date. Didn't help that I have large babies though.

I think perhaps it's your pelvis shape? My babies were just straight out front which makes you look def pregnant quickly rather than the embarrassing, has she put on weight or is she pregnant look.

I seem to keep having people asking when I am due, and then saying "Oh...." with an expression that looks like I am clearly lying.

I have never been this shape before - I am normally bump and bum, but this time I am just bump <yay>. My shorts are actually feeling too big today hmm

3rd ones are usually the largest........

Buffy is such a cool name btw

I have a small crush on SMG. I used to love Buffy, and think she is pretty, and I like her films, she always looks nice, doesn't appear all over the tabloids and seems to have a nice marriage.

Bear in mind the headlines and photo straps are written by someone other than the reporter - possibly someone who's never seen a pregnant woman before, by the looks of it...

Ha ha ha. That looks like me when I was about 3 months pg (with only one baby inside as well). I could have shown them a huge bump! I've seen pics of a few other eye-watering ones belonging to MNers on here as well.

I think what they meant to say was "Damn - SMG looks completely unremarkable, she doesn't look fat, look like shit and not has she made a maternity fashion eror. DAMN! eeeehhhmm... "huge bump" will this do ed?"
