How's that for a title?

Seriously though, this is my 4th, so I'm not surprised that my uterus has stretched quickly... but I can feel it at my belly button!?

How about you?

I would have no clue as to what it would feel like to find it. Did that make any sense at all? Lol


You'd think i'd know by the third time.

If you press right above your pubic (?) bone you it will feel hard, slowly press higher and higher until it goes down. You will be feeling the top of it. That is your uterus

Mine seems to be about two fingers below my belly button, but it's kind of hard to tell. My uterus is still a bit tender.

ETA: Forgot to mention, I'm 13 weeks tomorrow.

I could easily palpate my fundal height with my first, but I am having a hard time this pregnancy. I think it is because I actually had real abs the first time around, so the difference was very noticeable. My abs now are jacked to the max! They are such a mess and everything feels similar. I'll have to go lay down and try again...

This is my third and I also look 5 months pregnant. I don't care until I'm with the super fit friend who is also having her third a month before me and doesn't look pregnant at all!

mine still feels very low if i am feeling correctly. at least 3-4 fingers below my belly button, at almost 14 weeks. But DS 1 was always very low too until the end when i couldn't breathe.

thanks! this is cool to check out occasionally, though i don't want to piss off the baby

the midwife measured mine at 11cm from my pubic bone at 12w on the nose yesterday. it's definitely harder for me to find this time around, with dd it was really obvious when i orgasmed, this time, i really couldn't tell.

This! I can't believe how huge I am this time around! I didn't show very early with even my 3rd, but this time, watch out! Belly coming through!

Wow, some of you sure are big! (said in the most positive way )

At 13 weeks, 4th baby my fundus is about 6 fingerbreadths or so above my pubic bone, but not yet halfway to my bellybutton.
I have a long torso, and low pubic bone, so I've got lots of room, but I'm quite slim, so when I start to show I get a nice round belly.

Amanda; mama to: Axel (Dec/04), Evangeline (Apr/07) and Ramsey, (Feb/09) born unassisted! Jethro Vader (Apr/11) and #5 due April 2014.
