i was wondering if anyone has had this my stomach is bigger and harder at the top then it is at the bottom how can this be when my uterus (sorry i think i spelled that wrong) is in the middle of my belly botton so i would think the lower part of my stomach would be bigger, thanks for any input!

Maybe you are just carrying higher. How far along are u?

I am 18 wks and had my first visit to the antenatal clinic at my hospital on wednesday. The doctor told me my uterus is in line with my belly b___ton. I thuoght that was odd as my stomach goes out from the top....he advised me it is because my uterus is expanding and pushing everything upwards.

Hi Shelley - It's so funny you ask that because yesterday I had my monthy check up and asked my doctor that very same question. She said that its just everything being pushed up and if it happens more after I eat (which it does) then it's because I ate too much (imagine that!...lolol) and the digestive system is slower now. By the way Im 16 wks. How far along are you?

OMG! I am so glad that it's normal. I can actually SEE my belly getting bigger on the top and sides (they are hard) but my lower and mid sections are still a little jelloish...not so hard. I'm only 17 weeks but look like i'm about 6 months! LOL! That's funny!

Hi Ladies.When your uterus grows your intestines and all your other organs need a place to go. So that could explain why you look bigger on the top part of your stomach

This is my second preggers so I started showing way early and from what I understand by drs and experienced moms it is because your body has already been stretched before and espically from carrying really high up like i did with my son.
