The Stomach Looks Enlarged And Does Not Match The Gestational Age?
Morning, I want to ask. I am 5 months pregnant but how come her stomach is like 7 months pregnant huh?
Hello, thank you for the question to Lodokter
First let me confirm a few things:
Have you checked your obstetrician during your pregnancy or at least done a midwife control? Is your stomach measured objectively by your doctor or midwife so that you feel your stomach is bigger than normal? Have you had any previous illnesses (diabetes or hypertension) or were you found to have high blood pressure when you were last in control? Did you have excess weight before pregnancy? There are several things that can affect the size of the stomach during pregnancy, including:
body that is indeed big before pregnancy weight gain due to overeating during pregnancy diabetes in pregnancy miscalculation of gestational age (your gestational age is already greater than 5 months) twin pregnancy polyhydramnios or excessive amniotic fluid (usually will only be seen in the third trimester of pregnancy ) Swollen feet in pregnancy may or may not be normal symptoms. You should check with your obstetrician if you feel that your stomach is bigger than normal or if your feet look very swollen.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
