I think the bone that protects the uterus is the pelvis bone
Though children learn to call the entire belly the "stomach", the whole belly is technically called the abdomen. The organ, stomach, is in the top of the abdomen near your ribs. A baby grows in the organ, the uterus. The uterus is in the lowest part of the abdomen, near your pubic bone. The uterus is sort of like a balloon; as the baby grows, the uterus expands upward, toward the organ the stomach.
AnswerTendons attach bone to muscles. Ligaments attach bone to bone. :) If tendons do not stretch I believe the muscle would tear!do you mean if tendons do stretch
At 14 weeks pregnant the baby is still positioned mostly behind the pelvic bone. The growth of a uterus at 14 weeks gestation is about a inch above the top of the pelvic bone.
The nonpregnant uterus is located in the pelvis. It is the size of a lemon, and is tucked behind the pubic bone.
Technically, NO. What you (or a partner) might feel is the bladder and uterus pressing down "into" the vagina. This can make the vaginal walls feel closer to each other, or 'smaller' inside. This happens, in part, due to the action of pregnancy hormones on ligaments in the abdomen. Ligaments hold the bladder and uterus in place. Pregnancy hormones permit those ligaments to 'stretch'-- this is so the ligaments don't tear and is the body's preparation for labor, when the baby needs to get through the pelvic (bone) opening. Ligaments hold the hips as well, so if hip ligaments did not stretch, the baby would not fit through the opening in the pelvis.
It is in the pelvic region roughly in the area of the pubic bone.
Ligaments attach muscle to bone. When you bend your knee, it is the muscles that stretch.
because the tendon's attach the muscle to the bone
The first bone is the humerus at 36 weeks in the uterus. The second is the femur at 1 year.
It can happen pretty quick. Sometimes as early as 5 weeks. When the baby becomes larger, the uterus will rise above the pelvic bone and you will begin to show, AND take the pressure off your bladder. However as the baby grows bigger still and maxes out the space in the uterus and drops the pressure will return along with the frequent bathroom breaks.
The type of bone precursor seen in a baby is cartilage. This eventually will be turned into bone.
