Re: carrying smaller with a 4th (or subsequent) baby?
I have the opposite this pregnancy. I've always carried small. Even with 2 sets of twins, I constantly had people saying things like "where are you hiding the other baby." I did get bigger with each pregnancy, but that makes sense from a single to twins and then a second set of twins. But, I expected to be smaller with this pregnancy than I was with both sets of twins. I'm not! I'm huge!! I'm at least as big as I was with my first set, pretty sure I'm bigger. I have pics. It totally baffles me. How can I be bigger with one baby than with 2?
I think it's just the way I'm carrying. He is clearly ALL in front. I would think yours has something to do with how the baby is situated too. Enjoy it because it may not last.
