How long until uterus is back to normal size?

(About) How long does it take for your uterus to shrink back to its normal - nonpregnant size?

I'm 3 weeks PP now... so is mine back to normal - or still shrinking?

I'm just curious if this is how fat I really am now - or if there is still some shrinking to go...

"By four to six weeks, it should be close to its pre-pregnancy weight of about 2.5 ounces. This process is called involution of the uterus.

Even after your uterus shrinks back into your pelvis, you may continue to look somewhat pregnant for several weeks or longer. That's because your abdominal muscles get stretched out during pregnancy, and it will take time – and regular exercise – to get your belly back in shape."
