Oh thank god, haha I gained 50lbs with Olivia and she was 8.4, I would have a fit if I gained more than 50lbs this time around, I was soooo uncomfortable during the last few months of my pregnancy.
I used to think, "Oh, don't worry, my body won't grow a baby that it can't handle," then I was on bed rest for two months because she put a clean brake and hairline fracture in my ribs due to being so compressed and constantly hitting the same spot. That's when I learned that your body will make adjustments for your growing baby, they're just not always pleasant
Try not to worry hun, I was HUGE with Aidan at this pointof my pregnancy but with this baby I have a much neater/smaller bump and he is measuring fine. I asked my MW why I was smaller this time and she said bump sizes depend on a number of factors. I may have just carried more water with Aidan etc. So just because you were big last time doesn't mean you will be bigger this time x
Fingers crossed then! I haven't really put on water weight yet. The pregnancy before this I had tons of water weight. At 4 weeks I looked the same as I did at 10 weeks with Olivia. This time I have hardly any.
