I can't and it's driving me nuts! I'm 10.5 weeks, slim, and tried every which way to try to feel it. What's the deal?

I hear at 10 weeks it's still barely barely above your pubic bone, so it may not pop out for you to feel it till closer to 13 weeks, even then it will still be very low.

so glad you asked because i've been wondering this exact thing. i'm 12 weeks and can't feel my uterus at all yet. i seem to recall detecting it earlier last time around (this is my third pregnancy), but who knows? maybe my memory is faulty.

april.

I'm pretty sure I can, but I remember with my first my ob said my uterus was tipped out, so that may be why.

hope this isn't TMI- poke around in your belly after sex, when it's contracting a bit, it will be solid. especialy in the AM on an empty stomach.

Me too, in fact I just woke up this morning trying to feel it and can't They say you show quicker w/ your 2nd, 3rd and so on pgs, but still nothing for me and almost 12 wks. I've even gained 4 lbs since becoming pg too. So why can't I feel it?? I know this is silly but I hate to push too hard cuz I'm afraid I'll hurt the baby Maybe that is why I can't feel it, don't know.

12 weeks is the usual time to be able to feel your uterus over your pubic bone.

I'm showing so much I thought I'd be able to feel mine easily, but nope, can't find it. I know it's above the pubic bone, I just apparently can't tell what I feel.

It will become a hard little ball after orgasm though and you can feel it really easily then.

I always imagine baby getting mashed around in there when I'm poking at my belly! I didnt show any faster w/ #2 ( gained 10 lbs already by that point) but w/ this one Im already showing and have lost 4 lbs ( go figure)

I've always heard that the uterus doesn't come up over the pubic bone until about 12 weeks.

ive tried to do this the last couple mornings, because i always feel the tightening first thing in the morning. But all i could feel was how hard my belly was because of all the gas

I felt for mine this morning before I got out of bed and was able to tell where it was...I think b/c my bladder was so full!

OH! THAT'S what that was. I wondered what I was feeling afterwards. Now I'll have to go google why it does that. Lol.
