Did My Uterus Float Up Already?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I don't feel my uterus sitting right there in my pelvis anymore. I can drink a ton more water, I don't feel like its sitting on my bladder anymore. I'll be 13 wks sunday, with my 4th, it just seems too early to have moved up already.

I am not sure I can answer that, but I saw my dr. yesterday and was asking about my belly. I am sticking more above my belly button than below. She said my bowels have moved up already.

Definitely possible! I'm 16.5 weeks and my uterus is an inch and a half below my belly button!

The last couple weeks I have noticed I don't have to pee as often, especially at night. At my appt. yesterday, my midwife said I grew 10 cm in the last 3 wks. I know my belly kinda popped out the last few days.

Two weeks ago I had to go in to the MW just 2 weeks from last visit (minor fender bender) and she said my uterus grew a lot since the last we saw each other. Make me feel better, since I am not embracing my pregnant body enough this around.

I knew when my uterus floated up. It happened during the night last weekend between Saturday and Sunday. I was so thrilled to wake up and realize that I had finally slept a whole night. I'm 12 weeks tomorrow.

It's great when that happens. My belly is definitely pooching out more above my belly button than at or below, but it was that way until I was 8 months preggo the last time. For some reason, I carry high and tight. (Wish my boobs were like that! Ha!)

I'm 13 wks now. Weird thing is, last week I could feel the baby, but now I can't. I don't "feel" like anything is wrong--maybe the relief of pressure in there caused me to not feel things as much. Oh well, I'll feel him/her soon enough!

I think my uterus is still pretty low (about 2 inches above pubic bone) and I'll be 15 weeks, I feel like I'm behind you guys. The baby is right around my pubic bone, can't wait for things to move up more!

Wow! Thanks for all the reassurance. High and tight, lol!!
Anyways I don't "feel" like anything is wrong, but it was odd to me that I don't feel that tight little ball so low any more. Any I'm so fluffy now its hard for me to feel my uterus so much anyways.

mine is up there too these days, but still have to pee like crazy and sleeping is still on/off for me. My belly is pooching above my belly button too, crazy how all that bowel and stomach and every other organ in there has to be rearranged into a much smaller home to make room for growing babe! But I can't wait for my uterus to grow up more, right now (and note Im "fluffy") the crease between my baby bump (down below) and my pooching out top belly makes me look like I have 2 very big bellys, my 3yo asks me in the bathtub "mama why do you have 2 tummies" and "mama which tummy is your baby in"......ahhhh gotta love them!

Last night I slept the whole night for the first time in a while, AND didn't have to race to make it down to the bathroom in time! It was wonderful!

Wait.... you have times during your pregnancy when you don't have to get up and use the bathroom at night? That has NEVER happened in my universe.

But more on topic... yeah I'm feeling a bit higher and bigger this week too. I know they say you get bigger faster with more pregnancies though.

When I was at the midwife's last weeks @13 weeks she said I was measuring about 16 and we're sure about the dates. What's up with that?
