Growth of the uterus in pregnancy

The uterus is a muscular organ pear-shaped, located in the lower abdomen, between the bladder and rectum. It consists of two parts: the uterine corpus and cervix.  During pregnancy, the uterus plays an important role: hold your baby in the ideal conditions for development and growth. Therefore, the uterus grows week by week as the baby evolves and grows in size.

The uterus increases about ten times their weight throughout gestation, from 60-80gr to 900-1200gr. In addition, your blood vessels (arteries and veins) undergo major changes. During the first few months, the uterine walls are considerably thicker. In the second quarter, the muscle begins to relax, resulting in thinning of the muscle wall.

After birth, the uterus gradually returns to pre-pregnancy state.
