funny question, I know, but I'm really curious. I have no idea. Do you?

I think maybe the size of a peach?? I don't know, I know I read some fruit reference...


augustmom 10-31-2005 02:47 PM

I wonder if there is a website that would provide this???

Try the pregnancy tracker at fertility friend...

another reason why I'm asking this is because I got this email that said my uterus pre-pregnancy is the size of a tangerine, and that it is now the size of a grapefruit and I'm like, I don't think so!

I always thought that the non pg uterus was the size of a small almond not a tangerine!

the information you get out there is so mind-boggling sometimes.

here's a neat website I found...

I read that it is a tangerine now, an orange in about a month, and then a grapefruit last Decemberish... I'm 7 weeks now... I think mine is bigger than a tangerine though!

The word on the faq on baby development month-to-month was "tennis ball." I think I prefer tangerine.

ok, so maybe I have preggie brain and read the email wrong, but here's what it says:

Your Body
Through the placental wall, the embryo is able to absorb oxygen, proteins, sugar, and fat for the crucial task of building cells. Talk about growing pains: Now that your uterus has expanded from its pre-pregnancy size of a tangerine to its present grapefruit-like proportions, you may be feeling occasional cramping in your lower abdomen and sides. These cramps are normal and shouldn't pose any risk to the baby.

See the confusion here? I think it's a typo or something. Thanks for the info.

Asanamama, that website is neat!
