Hi everyone,
Maybe it's just me but I feel huge for being 24 weeks.. Especially this being my first I didn't think id be showing this much already.
Do I look about right? Or smaller or larger than 24 weeks?

Every one is different and it all depends on your body and the baby and all that.
But with that being said and since you asked yes you look a lot bigger I would have guessed 35 weeks or so. But please don't take that in the wromg way because I would kill to look like you right now.

Yes. To me you look farther along than 24 weeks. Did you have a 20 week(or whenever) anatomy scan done? What was baby measuring then?
I was small like you when I had my oldest and I had him vaginally. He was 9 lbs 11 oz!

I'm definitely not skinny like you but your bump looks bigger than 24 wks. The fact that you are so thin could make the baby bump look bigger. This is my 24 week bump.

Yes I did. They don't usually start measuring where I am until around 26/27 weeks.. So I have no idea where I am on regarding my size. Oh my lord.. 9 pounds is a big baby haha!! I was a 6 pounder lol.. That sounds like a nice number aha!

I think your belly is super cute :) Everyone is different and grows differently. My belly at 33 weeks isn't that big ;)

They didn't measure the baby's thigh bone? They usually do when they do anatomy scans.

Yep. I was sore for a while with that baby. I didn't have my own dr deliver as she was in England at her grandfathers funeral, so I had an on call dr who didn't know anything about me or the baby and just let him come out without having me stretch.

I'm really hoping that this next baby is a more "normal" sized baby.
