Now it could just be because it's your fourth and I know things tend to be bigger and sooner and all

This is my third pregnancy and I always measure large until about 20 weeks or so. With my first, my doctor told me that I "must be having quadruplets" at 14 weeks because I was measuring so large. Nope--it was just one.

Same with #2. Now, with #3, I was measuring at my belly button by 12 weeks--even though I'm UPing, I had an ultrasound just to be sure I didn't have my dates off! Nope.....just one baby, and I'm right on track. Around 20 weeks, it evened out. It could very well be just because you're pregnant with #4.

This is only my second, but my uterus moves up and down for some reason. It seems really weird to me but maybe it's normal? Anyhow, at exactly 12 weeks it was about 1.5 inches below my belly button (I felt it because I had a BH, and my midwife felt it in the same spot the same day). A couple of days later it was in the "normal" position for the gestation. It did the same thing with DD. Anyhow, is it possible that yours does the same thing? Or maybe I'm just weird!

I am pretty sure mine is at or above my navel... and has been for at least a week - I'm 16w now. I wasn't sure, so I had a good friend try feeling for the fundus last week and she agreed it was at least at my navel. Who knows how long it's been there! But it's been there with no change for a week or so. I decided I wasn't going to think about it unless I ended up at 30 cm at 20 weeks or something.

It was a uterus up to my belly button at 12 weeks that made me break down and get an ultrasound... and it was twins.

I would at least consider getting it checked out... not saying you shouldn't UP/UC but it would be nice to know for sure you were expecting two! About 60% of women who have twins and don't have an ultrasound have "undiagnosed" or surprise twins! I suppose you could just prepare for two and be pleasantly surprised if there's only one! Even if it is your 4th, the fundus being at the umbilicus already is pretty exceptional! Good luck, will be anticipating your update!

I'm 11 weeks right now and my uterus is also at my belly button. I'm feeling quite a bit of movement for this early and it's all over the place. I'm trying not to worry too much about twins yet, but it's definitely making me wonder. I tend to get big fast too, hopefully that's all it is.

My uterus was up to my navel around 12-15 wks. I can't remember exactly but it was too soon. I had an u/s - I've only got one in there. I obsessed about it for awhile. If the u/s is wrong, I'll let you know in a few weeks

This sounds more like your dates are off?

^^^^ Though mamas with twins tend to feel them earlier.

They're not, I'm 100% positive. I wasn't officially charting but I was monitering my temps and ovulation signs. My last period was March 15, I ovulated somewhere between March 26 and March 28. It is possible I could be off on that but not more than a few days.

I can't remember where my uterus was at this point with DD but I know it was much higher than where they say it should be. And I felt movement at 11 or 12 weeks with her. So more than likely this is just the way I do pregnancy.

But I have a question for you ladies...how much do babies move around in there? Usually when I feel movement it is in the upper left part of my uterus. But sometimes I feel something in the lower right. I know the baby isn't big enough to stretch that far...do they bounce around like that this early?
