Self discover and educate yourself through this beautifully designed uterus growth during pregnancy illustration.
The uterus size varies in woman to woman, but roughly is the size of an orange and is situated deep in the pelvis.⠀
By the end of your first trimester your uterus will reach the size of a grapefruit. At this stage the uterus still fits within the pelvis area.⠀
By the end of your second trimester your uterus will reach the size of a papaya. At this stage your uterus outgrows your pelvis and moves midway between your navel and breasts. ⠀
By the end of your third trimester your uterus will reach the size of a watermelon! At this stage your uterus extends from the pubic area to the bottom of the rib cage. Once your baby is ready she/he will drop lower into your pelvis in preparation to enter this world. ⠀
After pregnancy your uterus goes through deflation which they call involution. This stage takes an estimated 6 weeks to complete.
