Have you noticed that suddenly you or a friend pops overnight just like Kelly did? Experts tell us why a mommy’s tummy seems to suddenly get bigger in a matter of days.

Hey, HollyMoms! Just look at 47-year-old Kelly Preston — doesn’t it seem like her baby bump doubled in size since the last time we saw her? According to experts, sudden bump growth spurts are a common thing during pregnancy. “The uterus is getting bigger and the ligaments are getting softer [and stretching] and protruding,” Dr. Joel Batzofin, Medical Director of Batzofin Fertility, explained to “The tissue has to make way as the pregnancy grows.”And Dr. Batzofin also explained why some women show a bump months before others. “It depends if it’s a first time pregnancy or if the mom had babies before. If it’s the latter, they show earlier.”

“The mom will notice her changing shape before other people do,” added Dr. Batzofin. “But at two to three months, other people will start to notice the pregnancy.”

While Kelly and her husband, John Travolta, have revealed they’re expecting a baby boy, there’s no word yet on the due date. They have a 10-year-old daughter named Ella. Their first son, Jett, sadly passed away Jan. 2, 2009 at the age of 16 after a seizure.
