From the top of your pubic bone to the top of your bump is about the same in centimeters as the number of weeks of pregnancy, after 20 weeks. This will give your doctor/midwife a good indication of how well the baby is growing.

Did you mean belly BUTTON, not belly BOTTOM? Because "belly bottom" isn't a thing.

The belly button stick out during pregnancy because when the baby is inside the uterus (womb) then there is a connection(in the tubular form) for the gas exchange and food that is known as placenta.when a woman is not pregnant the its belly stick in or slightly stick out and when the woman is pregnant then the baby baby become bigger gradully due to this the delly button stick out during pregnancy.

You don't get fat! Your "belly" expands to hold and protect the fetus.

As long as it's comfortable then it's fine to sleep on your belly during pregnancy. It is recommended to sleep on your left side.

You can start to show in your second month of pregnancy. You can see your skin start to stretch itself out. This is an uncomfortable time during pregnancy.

Any position that does not have the woman lying on her belly.

Hi, During your pregnancy your tummy usually becomes harder during the 3rd month of pregnancy but it can be earlier in some women if its their second pregnancy. If this is your second pregnancy, you usually show earlier than you did with your first and some first pregnancies are late showing. This is normal. Yes your tummy can become harder underneath your belly button but it really depends on what position the fetus is in.

The female guppy will develop a dark spot on the side of her belly during pregnancy. As the pregnancy progresses, the spot will grow darker.
