Hi,
What did your obstetrician have to say about this? Did the ultrasound show the presence of uterine fibroids? Estrogen tends to stimulate the growth of fibroids in many cases. During the first trimester of pregnancy, up to 30% of fibroids will enlarge and then shrink after the birth. That may explain why your uterus feels larger.
