Baby/Uterus size


I was just wondering, does anyone know what size the uterus and baby is at this point? (well, at almost 22 weeks to be exact).

I'm feeling kicks quite high up and sometimes at the sides and I was just wanting to know if the baby can kick that far or if it might be muscle spasms. I'm pretty good at telling the difference between the two, but sometimes I wonder...

this compares baby size to fruit... doesn't really say anything about the uterus though!
this week my LO is the size of a lemon!

For Uterus size, I think they only look at Fundal Height to check you are progressing as you should. This link shows a drawing of where the top of the Uterus comes to within the abdominal cavity. I guess you can get an idea of how big the Uterus is from it. HTH.

Ok, so assuming that my uterus finishes roughly 1-2ins above my belly button, is it possible for the baby to kick higher than this? i.e. does the uterus stretch in the direction of the kick?
