(After reading your other message about indexing); if you aren't doing
any indexing yet, then you should expect a larger database once the
indexes are added.

Some advocate keeping indexes in a separate database, especially if they
are a significant fraction of the total database size.  That way you can
have different packing schedules, backup plans, storage devices, etc.
