QUESTION

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.

ANSWER

If you had an ultrasound at about 20 weeks that was normal, and your prenatal checks since then have been normal, and you feel your baby moving, chances are that all is well.

Please discuss your concerns with your provider at your next visit, and hopefully they will be able to reassure you.
