During pregnancy, it is common for women to experience physical changes in their body. There are those obvious changes like skin pigmentation, breast enlargement, and the growing baby bump. As far as the general shape of the pregnant belly is concerned, most women assume it to be of a round shape. At times, though, the shape changes every time the baby moves in the belly, somewhere after the 7th month. Sometimes the moving baby’s buttocks or feet might make the belly protrude a bit, albeit temporarily. In short, as the D-Day gets closer, the growing belly starts assuming weird shapes due to various reasons. But, what if someone’s pregnant belly takes on the shape of a cone instead of the usual round/oval? Surprising, right?
At the onset of your pregnancy (mostly up to 12 weeks), the uterus is the shape of a pear. From here on, as the baby starts growing inside the womb, the uterus starts stretching and so do the abdominal muscles to accommodate. This is when a woman starts showing a bump, which is usually round. However, there are times when women experience a cone-like shape to their belly. This is what happened to Laura Mazza, who described her condition on her Facebook page, Mum on the Run. Laura wrote that when she was pregnant with her third baby, she noticed while planking that her bump looked more like a cone. However, Laura assumed it to be her baby’s back that was showing through at that time!
