Dear Midwife,
I'm going on my 27th week of pregnancy and I feel really small. This is my second child and I always thought that the more babies you have the bigger you are. I'm just worried that something is wrong. I'm also a plus size mom so I don't know if that could also be it. Please help me and put my mind at ease.
