Preg with sm uterus: Possibly. The best advice is to make an appt with an obstetrician, and to have a sonogram for fetal growth. This will provide the answer as to whether the baby is growing and appropriate for the age of your pregnancy.

Let me stress that you may not be 5 months pregnant, particularly if your cycles were irregular before you conceived.
