Sometimes a Bladder is just a Bladder

I really don’t know much about pregnancy. Ask me to point out a fallopian tube, and I’d probably send you in the direction of the intestines.
What is an ovary shaped like? I’ll guess an egg, but it would be a lucky guess if I’m right.
When the doctor showed me a picture of the female anatomy, I honestly thought, “That’s not what I look like.”
Needless to say, this whole knowing when my uterus gets hard, (that’s what gets hard right?) has thrown me for a loop. I know it’s supposed to, but when?
Well, the other morning I woke up and put my hand on my stomach to see how much I had grown and it felt hard!
I had Bob rub my tummy and was so proud… then I went to the bathroom and my hard tummy was gone.
Apparently my bladder was just full. It was not a hard uterus with a happy Little Elvis inside.
Poor Bob, what other man gets forced to feel his wife’s full bladder?
I felt kind of silly telling him, but he just laughed. At least he has a good attitude about it.
Is your tummy hard? When did it happen? Are you as mystified about all of this as I apparently am? Let me know.
