In brief: Depends on lots

If a woman has had a bigger uterus than expected, it could be due to being farther along, having more than one baby, or having benign growths like fibroids of the uterus.
Ultrasound would be useful in these cases. Also the abdominal wall might not be as firm as during the first pregnancy especially if mom is busy with family.
