This morning when i woke up with my full bladder i decide to poke around for my uterus. I swear i felt a round firmness very near to my belly button. It was so easy to find. But after i pee'd i layed back in bed trying to feel for my uterus and it was difficult. I'm thinking that this could be it or not. Where did it go? I'm only 13w2d...I got so excited.
Was that my uterus
At 12 weeks it should be halfway between the public bone and belly button, roughly. It reaches the belly button at 20 weeks - in between it's not just growing up, but also out, since it "pops" out of the pelvic cavity.
I could feel the top of my uterus starting at 10 weeks, and so could DH (and mi midwifes at my first appointment), so I know it wasn't just in my head
I'll be 14 weeks on Tuesday (I can't help but round it up once the weekend is here, lol), I can definitely feel mine when I lay down and there's no doubt in my mind what it is. I've been prodding my belly for weeks already! Hahaha.
Then 16 weeks can't come up soon enough!
This is my 5th, and I'm a little concerned or maybe just curious, because since I last posted on this thread it seems my uterus has grown extremely quick. It is literally up to my belly button now at 14 weeks exactly. At 12 weeks it was just where it was meant to be at my doctor appointment, 4 days ago I could feel it about half way in between my pubic bone and belly button and now yesterday and today it's up to my belly button. Doesn't that seem excessive? I especially notice it when I have a full bladder as it sticks out much more, but even with an empty bladder I can feel it that high. It's just strange to me, never had it like this before. You'd think after 4 previous pregnancies I wouldn't be so stumped! Its true what they say, that each pregnancy is different.
aoife - I think it's in thebeginning stages of bulging out Not noticeable from the outside yet, but when I touch my lower abdomen it's starting to feel slightly rounded. For height it seems to have stayed in place the last week or so - the top is between 2 and 4 fingers below my belly button (depending on posture and how full my bladder is).
Yes, this is my first, so it's probably going to take a while for it to be obvious to others. Oh well, I'll just have to live with them thinking I'm getting fat again Though I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough not to have to wear tights so that I can get out of pants and into skirts with elastic waists (of which I have quite a few)!
It's my first too and i think i'm in the beginning stages of the bulge too....I can't wait to look pregnant and not fluffier....lol....and i can't wait to feel my baby start moving around in there. I do think i feel him or her i had this little pop yesterday and today i think i felt a little kick or punch...idk...they say it's to early. I just can't wait now...
