    Default Is this big at 5 months and does this mean my baby will be big?

    IMG_1494019682.205564.jpg

    So I'm feeling huge and I'm a few days off 5 months this is my #2 though I had my first nearly 11 years ago, I didn't show til at least 6 months with him, does this mean I'm baking a big baby?

    Congrats on the pregnancy! Carrying big and showing early doesn't prove the size of your baby, in my experience. I couldn't hide my pregnancies after about 14weeks and all my girls were only small, in the 6 pounds. From around 20 weeks I would get "it can't be long now" lol.

    Nope I think a whole lot of factors impact on carrying size. I carried huge. Combo of genetics, second baby, non existent abs, short torso and lots of amniotic fluid. Looked full term at 30 weeks. Bub was exactly 3.0 kg so not exactly big !!

    Ok, well I can tell my bf now that it's not because this baby is huge! I was so skinny when I had my first maybe that's why it took longer, not that I'm big now but from a size 6 to 10 my tummy had abit more squish to it and though I showed later with first he came out at 3.8kgs!

    This post makes me feel a lot better op, I'm 15+2 and reeeeeeeally popping out! I'm only small at 5'1 though, and both my mum and sister showed and were massive from early on and went on to have average size bubs.
