    Hi, I'm 17 weeks along with my first and have really begun to feel the wiggling and kicking too but I have no idea how big my bump should be!!

    I've been looking at other people's pics of their bumps around this time and while some seem the same size a lot are either bigger or smaller also so I don't think there's really a too small. :)

    I forgot to say she is my 3rd bubba so that might make a difference.

    Have you looked in 2nd Tri, there is a bump pic thread so that might help reassure you xx

    Hi like sparkle bump said we are all different and we all carry our babies differently, some days we can look bigger than others too depending on how baby is lying so don't worry as there is no norm even though other complete random strangers seem to think they have a right to comment sometimes, chat to your midwife if you're concerned, I'm sure she will reassure you :hugs:
    If it helps also here's mine taken 2 days ago and I'm now 33 weeks today! This is also my 2nd child

    I was really sick with my first pregnancy too up til about 6/7 months but not quite hyperemesis, I was never hospitalised and managed to gain loads of weight, this has just been awful and unfortunately they do say if you have it once you're more likely to get it again only worse though some women do go on to have HG free pregnancies after the first too so unfortunately you can never really tell. You can prepare yourself for it I think by taking anti emetics while TTC and by following special diets but not sure really how effective it all is. Hopefully you'll be lucky and not go through it again if you do decide to have anymore :hugs:
    I don't plan on any more as I'm now 36 and my daughter is 16 so there's no way I'd want anymore now anyway never mind going through HG again as you know it really is hell! Glad you got a break from it, mine seems to be getting worse over last few days again :cry:
