so something interesting has just recently come to my attention.
I am almost 22 weeks pregnant now, i am due the end of august.
I am 22 years old and i have a younger sister who is 12.
now i am on the shorter side, i have been 5 foot even since i was 17. Just before my 3 month mark i was weighed and measured for my first WIC appointment at my local Health Department, and once again i was about 5 foot even.
Well my 12 year old younger sister has been about a 1/4 inch taller than me for several months now, well just a few days ago she was standing next to me and i realized that i was looking down to talk to her.
my mom laughed (she frequently ribs me about my height) and stood us back to back and proclaimed that i was indeed taller than my sister, when just a few months before we had done the same and my little sis was taller.
My mom immediately measured me and i'll be ****** the tape measure read clearly...
5' 2 1/2"
somehow i had gained over 2 inches of height!!!
now i have scoured the internet and i cant find ANY medical findings on this, but a few other accounts of women asking something similar.
has anyone else had this?
has pregnancy caused anyone else to grow?
is there a name for this kind of phenomenon?
