In A Strange Twist, This Mothers Retroverted Uterus Has Caused Her Baby To Be Grow In Reverse
On 14th November 2017
It's nearly impossible to miss a baby bump when you see a woman walking in public. Generally, the expansion of a woman's stomach is the first indicator you notice. Yes, not every woman's body is the same and some mothers show more baby bump than others but in this woman's case there is almost sign of pregnancy at all.
Just like everything else in this world, baby bumps come in all different sizes and shapes. You have most likely seen plenty of images of "fit" women online who are pregnant to know that it is very possible to be knocked up and barely showing.
Sabo Skirt (an online clothing store) owner, Yiota Kouzoukas, recently shared photos of her lack of a baby bump on Instagram. Needless to say, it drew a lot of attention with many wondering how it was possible for her to look so thin while being 6 months pregnant.
The image of her stomach that Yiota shared on Instagram was amazing. For its caption, she explained why she was so thin: "for the first four months of my pregnancy, my uterus was retroverted/tilted which means that I was growing backward into my body rather than outwards."
She went on to write that: "Most people with this type of uterus tilt forward at around 12 weeks and continue growing outwards like you normally would." She claimed to have received a ton of criticism for not having a visible baby bump. She explained to her Instagram followers that: "It only really popped at six months. These ligaments are acting like anchors keeping my uterus ‘inside’ rather than ‘outside,’ which is why I appeared smaller than most people for the first four or five months."
