Small bump...small baby?


I was just wondering for those who have had children before & had a pretty much small bump for full term if there babies weighed small?
Everyone I know has said I only look about 5/6 month pregnant and can't believe I only have 10 days left! My oh is small and we r thinking our little girl is goingnto be small to.

Hmmmmm... I'm pretty petite myself, and had a big bump with my DS. He was 8lbs4oz at birth. I'm working up a big bump this time, so, I'm assuming LO will be right around the same weight?? could be wrong, lol.
i would think a smaller bump = smaller baby.

err nope.

I looked about 6 months pregnant at the end of my last pregnancy and I ended up with a boy who was 8lb 10oz.. so pretty big baby despite me being tiny.

From my experiences with friends that have given birth, the size of the bump usually has little correlation to the weight of the baby. One friend and the BIGGEST bump everyone always asked here if she was having twins, and the baby came out to be 81b which is actually average. Have another friend who is tiny, you still wouldnt know she was pregnant at 23weeks, and mw was worried about the small bump, keeping a close monitor on her, but then the baby came out at over 3kgs. you never know

I had tiny bump with my son but I am 5ft 10 so quite tall, he was 6lb 13. I'm a little bigger this time but not by too much.

I had a friend who went huge, lots of water retention everywhere and baby was 5lb 10, although another friend went big with second baby and was 9lb 1. I'd say it's not that reliable! X

I think it has more to do with how strong your stomach muscles and ligaments are and also your general frame than the size of the baby

Hi,
It always seems the opposite in my family...the bigger the bump the smaller the baby
Im the smallest in my family & carry small yet have the biggest babies, both my sisters put on around 4 stone each pregnancy yet the heaviest was just over 6lb. I put on around 1 & 1/2 stone yet already had 7lb 3oz & 7lb 8oz babies, im 37 weeks now & little man was weighing 4lb 7oz at my 31 week scan
My friend has also just had a little boy who weighed 8lb 13oz yet there was literally nothing of her.

So I guess there's no truth in it, I'm not exactly a skinny person either in quite well built but slim, guess I will have to see when she is born hopefully soon
