I'm out of the age range of height growth and yet I found myself growing about three inches during my pregnancy. Has this happened to anyone? My height never went back to normal.

I have friends whose feet grew length-wise during pregnancy and never returned to their normal size.

LOL! That happened too. I never heard of it either so I was wondering if I was a freak or not! My torso didn't even grow, which figures since that's where I would have loved the extra inches in length.

My foot grew too but I didn't think my height would!

oh man I wish I would grow taller. I think I've shrunk : and when you're only 5'0" to begin with that's not a good thing

I've heard of the feet growing, my sister's grow a whole size, mine shrunk

Why things like my thighs, waist, butt etc can't shrink is beyond me

I have always been 5'2", and I'm way after the age range for height growth. (I'll be 41 in a few months.)

This past spring I had to measure myself for a costume and I was, very surprisingly: 5'3"! Now, that's only one inch compared to your three inches, but it is possible that it was from the pregnancy... I honestly don't know what else it could be. Other than maybe Yoga, but I've been doing yoga since '93 and it had never caused any height increse before. And I've been very neglectful of my yoga practice these past few years.

Hmmmm......

I should mention that my feet remained their normal size through out the prenancy and although my butt and chest got bigger they've mostly gone back to Pre pregnancy size.

I asked Dh a couple nights ago if he had gotten shorter-- I swear, I'm looking at a different part of his face now.
Now I want to see how tall I am!
