Baby’s moving like crazy?”

“Yes, but I don’t remember feeling everything so low last time.”

Yeah, it’s because it’s your second. Everything’s looser in there.

Which led me to this.

the sock uterine comparison.

If your family is anything like mine, there’s reminders of your stretchy, stretchy uterus on the floor in every room. Especially right in front of the couch.


  1. Ha! Love this.

  2. LOL – I read the title to this post and was all worried!

    If the rest of me has to be saggy, it’s nice to know that I at least still have a perky uterus going for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. LMAO – oh gosh. So true….
    The best visual representation ever!

  4. Awesome! I can so relate…

  5. I truly laughed out loud.

  6. If only that happened for the man’s penis, too.

    @Avitable, as opposed to the woman’s penis, of course.

    Michele Reply:

    @Avitable, You want a big, floppy, stretched out penis? Does not seem attractive, even given we are talking about a penis.

    Avitable Reply:

    @Michele, no to the floppy, but increased in size and girth? Sure.

  7. Had me snickering. Awesome.

  8. Ha! With my second, I kept telling my doc the baby was HUGE. He kept telling me it just felt that way because my uterus had stretched. She weighed 10 lbs, 4 oz … no wonder it was stretched! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. THIS is what they should be teaching in sex ed class to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

    And maybe photos of women who wet themselves when doing things like jumping or sneezing…

  10. Ever see those jumbo Christmas stockings that Pottery Barn sells? That was me in this scenario.

  11. Ha ha! Everything is looser and in my case a little more painful. It is SO worth it though!

  12. amen ๐Ÿ˜‰


  13. Oh lord. don’t tell me this.

    Eddie was breach for almost ALL of his womb-time. His feet were always all up in my bladder and lady bits.

    I am doomed if they just keep getting lower.

    @Katie, I worried I’d pop Addie’s head every time I crossed my legs.

    I’ll let you know how it goes this time around.

  14. Ha ha, seriously.

  15. My childbirth prep teacher brought a stove pipe to our first class in order to help me better visualize my uterus.

    I like yours better.

  16. Two babies at once and my uterus hates me.

  17. Also in the undesirable “After” category: My OB said that after childbirth, you basically walk around 1cm dilated. Always. Nice, huh?

    Casey Reply:

    @Kim, No. Filed away in the “not nice” category. In fact, filed in the “eww, don’t tell my husband” category.

  18. So, so true. Sadly.

  19. Our stretchy uterus spot is on the floor next to my husbands side of the bed. I once did a test to see how many pairs of uteruses would pile up before he did something about them. I think I got to ten and gave up. OH WELL!

  20. Oh boy, thanks for that visual. I had wondered why everything felt lower this time too. Now I know!

  21. This makes me giggle! Fabulous comparison!

  22. Uterus? That sock on the right is my boobs.

  23. That reminds me, there’s a load of stretchy uteruses that need to go in the dryer.

  24. I needed that giggle. Thanks!

  25. Well we can chalk that up to one reason to be thankful for infertility – my uterus will always be lovely and tiny.

    Of course, the adoption stress eating I’ve been doing means that I still have the weight gain and stretch marks but hey, I’m “birthing” two toddlers. Seems reasonable, right?

  26. HILARIOUS! And oh so true. I feel my newest little boy way more than I EVER felt his older twin brothers.

  27. The socks actually remind me more of my post breast feeding boobs. You’re welcome.

  28. First lobster were ruined for me, now socks. Thanks you nut. *g*

  29. the big sock kinda looks like the outside of my belly. I’ll show you sometime if you want.

  30. I don’t know that you should trust curly gray mullet guy with his words of wisdom regarding baby #2 and stretchy stuff. Remember that part where I called for his head on a platter? Number 2, and for a reason. I’ll tell you after Mozzi is out and about.

  31. By the time I had my third at 35, I felt her movement in my ankles.

  32. Great visual.

    Also I am tired of my family leaving uteruses in between the sections of the couch.

  33. I’m sorry. I’ve waited 12 hours to respond in hopes that I would have something clever or uplifting to say…but I just can’t stop giggling.

  34. OMG. That’s HILARIOUS! Okay, but it makes me scared to get pregnant, kinda!

  35. I wouldn’t care as much about my stretched-out uterus if everything OUTSIDE the uterus wasn’t also stretched out…

  36. I know I’m a loser and behind. But congratulations anyway! stretched out sock-uterus and everything!!!!!!

    Freakin Awesome!!

  37. Tiny Grandma says:

    Call your mother please.

  38. I shudder to think of what my uterus looks like after 3…a legwarmer, perhaps?

  39. I can’t wait until you add a “like” button function to this site. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Oh wait, that already happened, and I missed it! *LIKE*
