Diagrams of growing uterus throughout pregnancy

I know we've all been tracking how big the baby(-ies) fruit size is each week but I found this website that is actually pretty cool if anyone wants to check it out:

    Oh my gosh -- I never realized that my intestines are going to get jammed up under my lungs. Am I seeing that right?

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    @CarrieandRoy haha, yup! I had the worst heartburn with DD. That's probably why. I haven't had any yet but at the first sign, I'm getting the largest bottle of Tums from Sam's Club!

    It will most likely be hard to get a good breath. Getting kicked in the ribs and punched in the bladder is weird and hard to get used to!

    This all seems so alien to me. At some point I'm going to have to read about the other trimesters and L&D, but right now the nausea has me entirely focused on getting through each day.

    Yup! My last baby was 8.5lbs. And it was so hard to breathe. I couldn't wait for him go drop... Then he did. And it didn't help. My lungs were still squished AND his big head was in my pelvis making it hurt to walk or sit or anything at all. Lol. Wait.... why am I doing this again?
    Yep. Until the baby drops. Then you have pelvic pressure and have to pee. Every. 10. Minutes.

    This has always been my favorite diagram to show just where the baby is and how everything is shifting.

    I was just looking for something like this the other day, because I definitely have a small bump, but I don't think it's uterus yet, I'm guessing it's uterus shoving intestines that direction for now. I have a very short torso, so I'm a bit concerned about all of the squishing. I'm assuming I'm going to have to get HUGE just to have somewhere for baby to go.
