Q&A: 6 months and a small bump
A concerned mom-to-be gets expert advice regarding her small pregnancy belly.

A reader asks:

"I am almost six months pregnant, but I still look so small. It looks like I am only about four months pregnant. I have a small bone structure and my bum and waist are both very round. Is it normal to still be quite small in size at this stage of pregnancy?"

Tina Otte (midwife) answers:
