This is a new top, part of a set that i ordered from Next! I think I will send them back and get the next size up!! I can't see these fitting for long!!
Apr 20, 2008 8:12PM
OH, think the children might guess tomorrow xx
Apr 20, 2008 8:13PM
Oh wow Caroline thats impressive and is going to be a big baby.
What did Gareth say when he saw your bump?
Apr 20, 2008 8:14PM
Wow caroline thats getting bigger by the week,good luck with the kids,no hiding it now.
Apr 20, 2008 8:16PM
wow thats a great bump!!! yep what did Gareth think???
Apr 20, 2008 8:22PM
Gareth has been patting my bump and talking to it!!
I am thinking that if the kids ask i might try and put them off the scent for a few weeks!!! The kids will be very excited, especially my form!!! I can just hear some of the snide comments that the staff will make!!
1 woman has never had kids (and quite frankly we should be thankful as the maternal gene well and truly bypassed her) and goes on about how she is owed 6 months off work paid as that is what we get!!

What a fab bump, i'm jealous!!
Apr 20, 2008 8:31PM
Thanks Sarah! I have a feeling the novelty may wear off when i get stuck in a supermarket isle like i did last time!!!
Apr 20, 2008 8:41PM
Tell me more!

I measured 5ft 3 inches round last time and thought i could squeeze between 2 island displays in a packed supermarket and just about got my bump wedged. I couldn't get behind the wheel of a car, and i have a zafira which has plenty of space!
Everyone else has seen this before, this photo was taken 3 days before i gave birth. The footy shirt is XXL.

Wow! you look great. once i work out how to do it i'll show you a pic of me at 8 months i looked ready to drop and then was a week late. I was huge but i loved it, going to have to stop talking about it cos i'll be begging my oh for another one
Apr 20, 2008 10:33PM
Oh my goodness Caroline, you are defo getting bigger!
Apr 21, 2008 6:34AM
Bronwyn was 11lb 12.5oz!!!!! Lighter than we thought!!
At the time of her birth the constultant warned me to expect a bigger bay next time!!
I was also carrying about a third more water than a usual pregnancy, according to the surgeons!
Apr 21, 2008 11:24AM
Wow that is impressive xx
Apr 21, 2008 1:29PM
Caroline, smurfy has got bigger since we met on monday!!
I hope you manage to hide it from the school kids until you are ready to tell them, but not sure how long you'll be able to do it for.
Hope you are feeling ok.
Apr 21, 2008 3:54PM
Wow Caroline, that's a great bump!!!!
I don't think you'll be able to hide it from the kids at school for much longer!!

Well, no kids were rude enough to ask if i was pregnant. But 2 staff asked, 1 asked when i was having another baby and nearly fell over when I said the 6th Dec. She said that she hadn't realised. Another asked when I was due as I was leaving school, I am not sure if someone has told her, but when I asked her to keep it quiet as very few people know she said that everyone would know soon as it was obvious!!
Got my year 11's tomorrow, they will ask. A few people did actually look at my tummy whilst talking to me!
Apr 21, 2008 5:21PM
No, because of her expected size and the fact that my waters had broken 24 hours previously and nothing had happened we went for a C section. Its a good job too, as if I had tried to give birth naturally I would have needed an emergency C section and would probably have lost her as her head was completely stuck and needed 7 midwives, surgeons, nurses to remove her from me!!
Sally I would love a cute small bump, but i think I am destined to have a bump the size of a small African country again!!!
