I feel like a crazy person, but tonight while I was in the tub I noticed a funny roundness right above my pubic bone. When I got out I laid down flat on the floor and palpated it. I can clearly feel my uterus, it's not that big, maybe the size of a peach? Not soft-ball size yet, but clearly a uterus. Is this b/c it's my third baby? I know I never felt it this early before, I will be 8 weeks on Friday. I'd really appreciate it if other moms could go and check so I wouldn't need to freak out! I just thought this was WAY too early to detect a uterus just by palpating my stomach. It is low, but out of the pubic bone, a bit above the hairline (sorry if TMI!)

Oh, ya. I can feel it. This is my second pregnancy and I am HUGE compared to last time. It's 9 weeks and I'm very obviously showing. I'm having to tell people at work already because I can't hide it. I can't wait to feel the little bean move!! This stage lasts soooo long.

This is also baby #3 for me. I'm 10w2d and I can just barely feel my uterus. It's probably about the size of an orange right now, and it's just barely poking up above my pubic bone. Also, last night as I was drifting off to sleep, I realized that I could *feel* my uterus... I knew exactly where it was and how big it was without poking at it.

I'm not sure about locating something small and hard 'above the hairline' but I do know that the muscles (I assume that's what they are?) feel a lot tighter and rounder. Wonder what's going on with that.

I visited my midwife's back-up OB for a PAP and he was able to feel my uterus a seven weeks (said it was nice and soft and appropriately sized for seven weeks). If you know what you are looking for it is definately possible.

I'm 8 weeks and can feel mine. I think the MW said last time that if you measure from the pubic bone, you should be able to find the top of the uterus by measuring up 1 cm per week of pregnancy. Does that make sense? It seems to work for me.
