Even after I empty my bladder it is still that noticeable. As I do squats during the day everything settings deeper in my pelvis.
Where's your uterus these days? - Page 3
Oh I'm not disputing that at this stage, it's fairly easy to find your fundus :) I know mine is quite pronounced. But if you are having a hard time finding it, try laying on your back with a full bladder (remember drinking a gallon before an ultrasound?) and it should be pushed up higher out of your uterus. Once you feel the shape of it, I think it's easier to find under more typical circumstances.
Regardless, it's not a huge deal at this stage because it'll be up and out for the world to see in no time at all! :p
First pregnancy I had to take it out about 30 weeks. Second I think it came out about 25 weeks (and I waited). Th's time I'm guessing it will come out about 20 weeks. About 5 weeks to go :-( oh well, it will go back in after baby. DH is really the only one who sees it anyway.
Of course your body will never be "the same". This is a new chapter in your life, and a beautiful one. Try and enjoy your changing body.
I do tend to be fuller on the left side. That is also where we suspect the placenta to be attached!
I know it won't be the same... this is the beginning of that. Trust me - I'm not at all confused about what my body is about to go through. I'm just stating that losing my belly ring was the first part of that journey. I'm definitely enjoying EVERY part of this pregnancy - except for the nausea that won't seem to leave.
I officially felt mine for the first time today. TMI alert, but after sex my whole uterus was rock-hard and I could totally feel it. It was just a little below my belly button (a finger or two, but I wasn't really paying attention, just poking around). It was cool too because I think the placenta is attached on the right side because there's a bump there that there isn't on the other. It was really cool. I made DH feel it, even though he was a little weirded out by the whole thing. So, for those first timers who are having trouble finding it, try post-orgasm and see how it goes.
