I've been a complete bum today and have spent it laying in bed reading.

And then I got bored and started poking around at my uterus which is bigger every day! Now it's too my belly button.

 

If I stabilize one side of it with one hand and put a flat hand down over the belly of it, I sometimes feel little pokes. Hopefully soon I can feel them without having to squash the poor thing, but it's so cool that I can't help it ;)

I am 13 weeks and 3 days and my uterus is all the way up to my belly button already -- and this is my first.  I guess I'm an early bloomer. I haven't "popped" yet but I am definitely starting to show -- especially to those who "know".  Anyone else feel ahead of the game?

Beckily-

I'm sure I pissed my baby off last night because I was squishing and poking everything trying to make it move so I could feel it....but with no such luck =(

 

Bonad--

That's neat that your uterus is so far up already.  Just goes to show how everyone is so different.  This is my first also and I actually feel really far behind.  I still have no idea how to feel my uterus.  I have no idea where it is.  And I'm still not showing at all at 16w5d, except for getting wider and gaining weight.  Do you have a pic posted in the belly pic threads?

yell --  Not yet.  I need to post one.  I have some on the camera, I just haven't gotten to it.  I am no expert at finding mine, but I know the "hardness" continues to move farther up on my abdomen every day.  And, I am pretty sure that it is all baby -- I can't suck it in.  I will post one soon.  :)

Mine is certainly getting bigger and bigger! And I was high at my last check.

 

Last night my uterus got nice and tight - no idea why - so we were able to easily feel all of it. It was very cool! I was all mushy and I had this fabulous ball of "not the mama!'

I'm all the way to my belly button too, which I thought was too high, so I'm happy I'm not the only one! I'm 15w5d.

I'm 16w3d and mine feels like it is at my belly button as well...if I'm feeling what I think I'm feeling :)  I first felt the baby move this past Saturday, when I was relaxing on the couch after a long day at work.  I called my mom to describe the feeling and she confirmed that's what it feels like.  Now I feel it often, but only if I'm relaxed, sitting or lying down.

I don't know. It lasted more than ten minutes. Just tight - not contractions. I was going to sleep and it felt weird to lay on my side with it all drawn up so I started poking at it instead of sleeping, hoping to get it to relax - and because it felt cool :)

Everytime I've thought I felt the baby was while I was trying to sleep so I was doing  the same thing last night, and I definitely felt it!  It literally scared me because I wasn't expecting it.  I think I screamed out something.  lol.

I'd be glad to know, too.  I have had a few slight fluttery feelings in the last day or so, but so slight I really don't know if I can thank my dynamic duo or my wistfulness for them...  ;)  (We're at 14w2d, today.)

Well, I'm pretty sure I am feeling the baby.  It started at 14 wks 3 days when I started this post and it seems to be getting more clear that it's my little bean moving around.  Awesome!  I still can't wait for a full on kick, but I'm pretty confident now that I feel my little one moving around in there.  So cool!  I'm 16 wks tomorrow.  :)

Guys, I have to share this with you!

 

Usually, baby hangs out on my left side, that's where I feel all the pokes and flutters.  Well, the other night I was on the couch and DD came over and put her hand on the right side of my belly.  She was cute and said, "*GASP* Baby!  Heart Beep!" and at that moment, the baby actually flipped from the left to the right side, to right under her hand!!  Of course only I could feel it, but I was like OMG!!  That was the biggest movement I've felt so far!  It was so amazing!!

Beckily, that song is hilarious!  But maybe baby was crying because daddy's hair looks scary?

 

Baby_Cakes, that is so sweet!

Could be, could be ;)

He says he does the hair and makeup because, since he performs while playing piano, his face is the only thing he can entertain with :) He has, I think, 3 children.
