Hi all, just wondered if anyone else is/has been feeling the same way? I'm 24weeks today and feeling absolutely huge. I'm only 5'1" tall and I have an enormous bump already. I'm getting all sorts of comments(some not so nicely put!) about my size and I'm starting to feel really scared about how I'm going to cope with the rest of my pregnancy. I'm already having problems putting shoes on, getting out of bed/chairs etc. I have had nausea and vomiting which is still with me so I haven't actually gained much weight elsewhere. I just look like I'm swallowed a beach ball. I tried to broach the subject with my midwife but her response was quite dismissive. She said my uterus was the right size ie just above my belly button but I know that it isn't. I'm feeling it about 4 inches above it and as I'm short that's not far below my ribs. I know I'm going to increase in size, its inevitable, I except that. But i'm feeling really anxious about exactly how big and what if the baby is growing too fast. What are your thoughts? Thanks x
