  • Q:

    How big does a pregnant belly get in different trimesters?

    A:

    Most pregnant women have a fundal height roughly equivalent to the number of weeks they are pregnant, reports Mayo Clinic. The fundal height, measured from the pelvic bone to the top of the uterus, is usually measured in centimeters. Since the fundal height can be 2 centimeters less or two more than the number of weeks of gestation, a woman who is 40 weeks pregnant should measure between 38 and 42 centimeters, according to Fit Pregnancy.
