Why is my stomach so big in first trimester?

Are you expecting twins?

The odds are against that.

The odds are that someone will suggest that’s the reason your stomach is so big the next

time you complain about it.

The odds of that are maybe one in a hundred.

The odds are closer to one in sixty if you are in your thirties and up to fifty – fifty

if you used fertility drugs.

This was an all natural event.

Then I’d ask if you’re sure of the due date.

If you mistook light spotting at the end of the first month as a period, you’d be a

month off.

That would only make a difference in stomach dimensions if I was around the fifth or sixth

month, explaining the differences between the size of a basketball versus a blimp.

If you’re eating for two instead of one point two, that could explain the extra inches

on your stomach.

I’d also be adding inches to my thighs and hips if I was doing that, in addition to the

stomach and breasts that already seem to be ballooning.

If you had six pack abs, your stomach would not stick out as much as it would if you were

out of shape.

My body was stretched out of shape when I had the first kid.
