    i don't quite understand why my bum is growing so much. Its covered in stretch marks where as my bump has none. No joke but my bum is bigger than my bump. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Is it anything to do with nature and the old days needing a cushion to sit on when giving birth in stables and things? :think:

    I have no idea but I know what you mean.. a couple of people (that dared to tell me without getting beaten up!) have said that I've put more weight round my bum than my bump. Maybe its all the extra sitting around, I just can't put my finger on it! :think:

    I'm having exactly the same problem hun. No stretch marks on my bump but my thighs and bum are covered! I'm praying my buby hurries up before my lower body turns into 1 giant stretch mark! Right from before I found out I was pregnant I gained weight in these areas and very early on in my pregnancy I had to stop wearing my regular non pregnant jeans. Hoping that it doesn't take long to lose all the extra weight afterwards. :hug:

    Oh God! Tell me about it!! I had been delighted up until about 3 weeks ago because I'd not experienced that pigging out stage (like I did from practically the moment of conseption with Harry!)

    Now I'm just hungry aaaaaall the time and desperately need to up my exercise to cope with the increase! I've figured an hours waddle a day should do the trick :D
