Hi Alex,
I`m a little concerned...im 11wks 3 days pregnant today and i have suffered from recurrent miscarraiges in the past year and a half. this pregnancy looks succesful so far and i definitly feel pregnant :) but my uterus is HUGE! i had a scan at 9wks 4 days and my uterus was already 12cms. then i read that at 13 weeks its only meant to be 10cms....is that normal or cause for concern?
Thanks Alex,
Nicole

Answer: Hi Nicole, There tends to lots of varying information about the development during pregnancy. Try not to worry too much as the measurements may have been taken differently. At 13 weeks you can usually feel the uterus about half way between your pelvis and your belly button when you are lying flat. Best wishes, Alex
