  • The uterus. It expands while other organs and your abdominal muscles move out of the way to encompass the uterus which grows to 40 times its normal size.

  • loll your uterus does NOT grow to 40 x's its normal size but it does get bigger. to answer the question, it's quite a few dif. factors, in the very beginning however it's most likely gas and water retention because you uterus has not started REALLY stretching yet.

  • Gas, water retention and the love of doritios and icecream more than likely ;)

  • well for me I know its cuz I don't suck it in anymore!!! It really depends on the pregnancy, but usually 2nd or 3rd (and higher numbered) babies show earlier because the uterus tilts forward as it starts to grow much more easily after it's already been stretched in a previous pregnancy. Water retention and gas are always reasons also.
