i had my last child 23 years ago. I look very pregnant

I am 44 years old. I have 3 grown children and I can no longer get pregnant. I have uterine fibroids, and very long and heavy periods. My stomach looks like i am 6 or 7 months pregnant.It has a very high pregnancy look. What is it?

HI,
Large fibroids can mimic symptoms of pregnancy. Abdominal enlargement can be caused by huge fibroids. Hence you need to investigate whether the size of fibroids has increased or whether there is collection of fluid or ovarian cysts etc. Consult a gynaecologist.
Hope this helps.
