Just wondering how everyone is getting on? There is no mistaking I am pg now.....I will be 6 months tomorrow! Have to go buy more pj's.....they are all too tight now! I have been told I have a 'neat bump' - so I am right on track for the old wives tale, that boys bumps are in front and girls are all round! Also, have found myself in Dunnes, tempted to buy stuff for him, but so far have resisted (but they soooo cute!). What have ye bought?

I'm a bit behind you, due date 30th September/1st October, GP & gyne cannot agree on date.. I've bought a carseat/pram & some clothes, only a few baby grows, got paint for nursery but nothing else yet, I know sisters have gone mad buying stuff but I'm still a little wary. As for the bump, deb look pg now, but I could have been bigger than you to start, pj's dont fit even thought I have one pair that I still wear, v comfy, but I know its time to put away as I can see the seams stretching.

Oh, I agree Charli, that its only an old wives tale - I just don't seem to be dispelling the myth myself! I always thought my boobies would go massive too, but I've only gone up a back size so far! Hey Mrs Lucy - do you think its small? I am glad, I am terrifed of getting huge, as I am only 5ft tall! I think I may buy some stuff on fri - only stuff that he will defo fit into - oh, how exciting! :o)ll Does anyone else have any bump pics?

God I think you're really neat Shorty. I'm bigger and way behind you. Although on my first pregnancy I was much smaller at almost six months than I am now - think it varies!

Hi Shorty, my bump's probably like yours if not a bit smaller, I keep thinking I'm really small for 25 weeks but Dr says all's well, so that's the main thing. As for the weeks, you'll be 24 weeks, calendar months you won't be six months until 26/27 weeks I think if you read the what to expect... I guess it's cause calendar months are more than 4 weeks normally, otherwise we'd be pregnant for 10 months instead of nine. Am I actually making any sense here??? :-8 :-8
