When your pregnant when do your stomach start to grow??? & can you get your period in still be pregnant?


The majority of women do not have a period while pregnant, but some do. The difference is an egg is not released (unless it is superfetation – "Superfetation (also spelt superfoetation – see fetus) is the formation of a fetus from a different menstrual cycle while another embryo is already present in the uterus. When there are two separate instances of fertilisation during the same cycle, it is known as superfecundation." Wikipedia). Superfetation is extremely rare and had occurred only 10 times in recorded history. So, yes it is possible.

In terms of growing, it is your uterus that will expand as your baby grows. How much and when you start to show will depend upon your body type, heredity, and your physical health. If you are tall, sufficient hip width, and are prone to carry your baby nestled in, you may never "show" and will be able to wear the same size clothes even if you where athletic and slim. (This was me). If you are larger, the baby’s growth will often be lost inside and if you are small hipped, you will generally carry out showing quickly. The average would be to have a baby bump around 12 weeks.

    no, you cannot get your period, but its common to spot.

    and its different for everyone, anytime after 12 weeks though you can start seeing a difference, for most its not till about 16 though!

    i didnt show till 25 weeks.

    edit:

    MUST I EXPLAIN MYSELF? REALLY???

    you do not get your period because if you are pregnant you do not have a period, its impossible. but you can spot which is sometimes mistook for a period, but its not a true period

    and you do not show till after 12 weeks cause its impossible. your uterus is still below your pubic bone until that time and its not possible to show something that is basically not there. its common to bloat and look like you are showing, but you really arent.

    now….since i got all those thumbs downs, do you still disagree, i think not because im right, and i should not have to clarify everything!

    not when your thinking it does. not for awhile
    5 months or so
    depending on your body
    If you are over weight really late
    and sometimes over weight people do not even notice

    you technically get your period but you spot which can be mistaken as a period and it usually starts to grow anywhere from 9 weeks on.

    Your stomach does not grow when you are pregnant, your uterus does, and NO you cannot menstruate and be pregnant.

    It all depends on the person, first baby or not to know when the stomach starts to grow, everyone is different so we wont all grow at the same time, mine for example started when i was 20 weeks, Also you can still have your period when you’re pregnant its rare tho.
