We're writing a piece in Practical Parenting magazine about whether a bigger/smaller bump means a bigger/smaller baby and whether a smaller baby is easier to give birth to than a bigger one.
Are you pregnant and worried about your bump size? Or have you recently given birth and maybe thought you were having a smaller baby cos you had a smaller bump and your little one turned out huge? Or vice versa? We'd love to hear your stories.

I had a small bump .. Was told I was having a small baby .. (only 5 foot 1, weigh 7 stone), My son was 7lb13oz.. Pretty average but not exactly a small baby
i had a very small bump people couldnt even notice that i was pregnant, i even had a growth scan and was told my son would be a tiny 6lbs, but i had my boy at 39 weeks weighing 7lbs 3oz!
and my close friend had a massive bump very big all round bump but her daughter was only 6lbs 6oz!
so i dont think the size of your bump means you will have a small or big baby
i am expecting my second and wondering if i will even get a bump second time around!
my bump was very small with my daughter, i was sent for regular growth scans in the 3rd trimester, my MW even spoke about inducing at 37weeks as she was sure my baby was not growing properly, my daughter was born at 40weeks weighing 8lbs6oz, my MW couldnt believe it!
I had a big, front bump and baby was 8lbs, so just perfect!!
