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.
