    I am 2 days from 27 weeks, and am 5'11.

    I feel as though my belly doesnt look big like "shorter" womans do at this stage..

    Anybody else have this going on?

    Yes im quite tall and i get quite a few comments from people telling me my bump is tiny! I feel like its huge but i think because im tall it balances out and looks smaller! Alot of my shorter friends looked bigger at this stage but aggain they had no room!

    I am only 5'8", but tall enough that I have thought that my height is at least partly the reason for my small bump. I constantly get remarks on how neat my bump is, from midwives, to my prenatal yoga teacher, to coworkers, even now at 36+ weeks. In the last couple weeks I've gotten remarks from coworkers that I 'finally at least look pregnant'. Since babies don't really vary THAT much in size, I figure it makes sense that they just have more room inside the torso of a taller woman, so the bump doesn't need to grow as far outward!

    I am 5'9" and glad!! We are having twins, and all I have heard from those who have had them is that it's a good thing that I am on the taller side. It will help!

    I'm 5' 11 and all throughout people commented on my small bump (my avatar is 29 weeks) but I measured between 2-5 weeks ahead on all FH measurements!!

    Thanks Hun :hugs: I am currently lying in a damn uncomfy hospital bed waiting for my 2nd lot of gel in my induction.

    I'm glad things are happening for me but I wish it'd hurry up a bit (I've discovered I'm not a very patient person!!!)

    I am about 5ft9 and will be 30 weeks tomorrow (tuesday) but my ticker hasnt changed to 29w6d yet. Shorter women at this stage complain of rib kicks but not me :) My little guy has plenty of room before he squashes mylungs ans kicks my ribs. My fundal height measurements are all pretty perfect so I know i am right on track. I can get a bit more than one hand (sideways)between my breasts and where I can feel the top of my uterus so hopefully the rib kicks will wait some time :)

    I'm only 5'7", but I have a tiny bump compared to others. My boy isn't anywhere near my ribs. Only recently been getting movement near my belly button.

    I'm 5'7" and have had a bump for only the last 3 weeks even now at 37+5 I'm wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes. People have commented that I'm smaller than they were at 4months or that the dates are wrong. I'm still getting people who I see regularly asking if its true because they haven't noticed and have just been told. My bump is low and I think I've just got a considerate little boy inside that wants to have a yummy mummy. My sil is 6ft about a month behind me and has looked like she's eaten a beach ball since 12weeks, it is her second though. Apparently with her first though she was small until. 34 weeks then grew loads. So i guess its different for everyone.

    Hey, I'm 5'9" but my bump is big, but its low........no kicks in the ribs, mostly around my sides, or above my belly button, so hopefully she's got room to grow before squashing my lungs !

    Especially with my lovely mummy marks :)winkwink: Stretchies!!)

    Luckily only gained weight around my hips and bump, everywhere

    I'm 5ft 9 so not as tall as some of you ladies but people have commented that my bump is pretty small all the way through my pregnancy. Not sure how much it's been to do with being tall and how much is just me being lucky and carrying "neat".

    Red Herring in Debenhams also do longer length (rather than tall) maternity jeans, but only in a couple of styles. These just about fit me, and I usually have to buy tall trousers (I think I am about 35inch inside leg)
