Yes: A 7 wk pregnant uterus is about the size of a small orange-not very big even in a small-framed pelvis. Changes in your intestinal function are the cause of your off and on belly changes. Pregnancy causes the intestines to function more slowly, causing you to have a bigger "pooch" atfter eating sometimes. Be patient! by twenty weeks, your pooch will likely be more prominent-and permanent!

Pregnancy...: Hormonal changes associated with being pregnant cause a number of symptoms that are definitely not usual when you are not. Abdominal upset, nausea, vomiting, etc. are among those and they are not worrisome.Symptoms to worry about: severe abdominal pain,vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, unable to hold any food and liquids down without relief, for example. Follow up with your OB provider on this.
