I started feeling a bit down about my bump last week after my MIL who hasnt seen me for seven months greeted me with "yoou're getting fatter" I did retalliate in my hormonal state with "at least I have an excuse". Just done my latest bump pic at 24 weeks and now Im worried Im too big, Ive put on a stone but since the comment I worried Im getting too big anywho here is me and bump excuse the pink blob head

Take no notice Luna! People just comment for something to say. I was always told I had a small bump (and up until about week 34, I thought so too, then it just sprouted!) except for one woman who thought I was having twins FFS!
You don't look too big at all, everyone is different. My bump grew rapidly to begin with then slowed down then spurted at the end. If the MWs are happy and you're happy then sod everyone else. I think you look fab!

Awww thanks Saisi it just took me by suprise, normally people say how well I look and my bump is quite neat but obviusly a bump rather than fat lol. Hubby wasnt amused and spoke to her about it but she pretty much brushed it off as my hormones making me misinterpret things. I got really angry then, I just dont see the need to be so mean. Im her only daughter in law and this is her first grandaughter, you'd think she would be pleased.

You don't look overly big to me either. People just like to comment and some of them have no tact. You look great and as long as your midwife is happy then that's all that matters.

Ignore her. You look fabulous and you don't look too big, at all!

Thank you muchly! My MW is fine with how things are, Ive not put on an excessive amount of weight and am eating healthily and taking vitamins, My MW said my stomach muscles are actually really strong (Im shocked there are any hahahahaha).

You are a lot smaller and neater than I was at 24 weeks, tell her to jog on!!

Ignore the comments and embrace your lovely bump! You don't look big to me either. People will always have something to say, I have learnt to take all comments with a pinch of salt. It's my bump and I love it!

Thanks Ferbs, dont know why people feel they simply have to tell you their opinion lol
Thanks IDC that gives me a weight to compare to, I stayed at 10st 11 for 2 weeks s I dont feel too bad that Ive put a little bit more on now, Im 11 stone on the dot now. Ive been 12 stone before without pregnancy so Im still not the biggest Ive ever been x

I started at 10, I'm now 11ish. I was 13st the day before son (7lb9) was born. 2 weeks after that I was 1st over, by the time he was a year old I was back to 10.
I'm normally 10st, but was 11st when I was 16 (I discovered mayo at that time, lol). So long as I don't go over 13st, I'm happy!

You look fine. Don't worry about the comments.
I am way bigger than you and I'm only 22 weeks ;)
