    Well, had my 24 week appointment with midwife this morning. They measured my bump and bubs is measuring normal, but on the larger side. So, got dh to take a pic of bump, and have just compared it to a 18 wk bump pic ...cannot believe the size difference.
    Even went to MIL's today and it's only 2 weeks since I last saw her and she got a shock at the size of bump.





    May sound like a dumb question but is it TOO big for 24 weeks?

    Oh goodness I was worried about this - I bought my wedding dress at about 12 weeks and it didn't occur to me that when I got married at between 19-20 weeks I'd actually have a bump. Then I read lots of these 'Oh my god where did this bump come from?!?' threads and I know everyone'll be in for a shock on the day.

    And I don't think your bump looks too big for 24 weeks at all - there are some ladies on here with 20-22 week bumps that are ginormous!

    I have been stalking threads for baby bump pics between 20 and 24 weeks because bumps seem to get larger during this time. I have noticed that mine is really growing now!
