Guessing the baby’s sex through the shape of the belly, or thinking that a small belly causes low birth weight is one of the wrong judgments.

Guess the sex of the baby through the shape of the belly

That’s just a wide guess, as there’s no scientific proof for that. The actual shape of the belly is affected by the position of the fetus. In most cases, the fetus heads down and his face also heads toward the mother’s uterus. However, there’s a small rate that the fetus’ position is reversed.

If the fetus is horizontal then the belly will look differently flat until the baby returns to his first position.

Small pregnant belly doesn’t mean that your child is low in weight

People believe that, the bigger the pregnant belly is, the heavier the fetus is, and small pregnant belly can cause malnutrition to the baby. In most cases, the judgment above is not right. If you’re tall and you have tight abs, your belly is normally high and neat. On the other hand, if you’re short and you have lots of belly fat, your belly will look huge.

Judging whether the fetus is big or small depends much on ultrasound scan and the calculating way of specialists. At that time, the fetus can grow smaller or bigger than the gestational age. However, this kind of calculation is relative as the difference of the predicted conception day and the actual conception day is pretty huge.

Affection of pregnant belly toward stretches

Stretches is not only common on the belly, it also appears in chest, back, waist and thigh of pregnant women. About 50% of pregnant women have stretches; though, the reason for that is not clear. In most cases, stretches can be related to the changes of hormones during pregnancy and cause the cells under the skin to be stretched.

Stretch isn’t due to the large size of the belly. It relates to the collagen and elastin inside the skin. Stretches can turn into red and cause itchy during pregnancy. After delivery, the light-colored ones normally lose their color or turn into brighter skin tone, less obvious.

It’s hard to prevent stretches during pregnancy. The creams, essential oil (such as vitamin E) and other moisturizers can’t completely prevent stretches. However, they make your skin less dry and reduce itchiness.

Note: the size of the belly is different for each mother. Comparing the size of your belly to other mothers is just for fun, and you don’t need to worry too much about that even when your belly is smaller (or bigger) than other’s.
