uterus size?

This may be a dumb question, but what is the size of a healthy uterus? I always thought it was the size of a pear but someone just told me that it is the size of a walnut. Hopefully someone out there knows the right answer!

My pathology report said it was like 4" long x 4" wide by about 3/4" thick
Hard to believe it can hold a baby.

the walnut reference is closer to the size of an ovary, not the uterus.

My doctor said a normal uterus on average 70 grams and about the size of a closed fist or the pump-ball on a blood pressure machine.

When my doctor told me mine was enlarged he said the average uterus was 4-6cm and mine was at least 12cm.

Mine was the size of a volley ball and weighed about three pounds. Sure felt like it weighed a lot more while it was still inside me, and I was about ten pounds lighter after surgery so who knows.

According to my pathology report: Uterus/cervix weighed 67.8 grams, and measured 8.5 x 5.1 x 3.1 cm.

Aside from dysplasia of the cervix, all my parts were otherwise perfectly healthy.
