<p>Anyone else feel their uterus yet? Mine is clearly above my pubic bone, and it seems a  little early.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another sign that comes faster in subsequent pregnancies?</p>

<p>I think so. I seriously couldnt believe my belly yesterday. I had to wear a big sweater to hide it since we havent told anyone yet. This is my second, but I am only 8 weeks! It is hard to the touch, not like my usual bloat. My husband thinks it's twins, but I think it's just because it's my second.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It'll be interesting to see how we progress. If I keep growing at this rate my belly will be huge!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone else feeling this way?</p>

<p>Idk if this is just me, but when we dtd I can totally feel it.  It feels like a softball.  And it's really firm and hard after orgasm -- it's all coming back to me now.  Just that general feeling of awareness and that telltale hard bulge -- amazing that it's happening already.</p>

<p>I can fell mine and it's about the size of a grapefruit.  I'm 8 weeks today.  But this is my 5th baby so I guess it's to be expected!  I already have to unbutton my jeans or it feels terrible!  Good thing my whole family already knows we are expecting again because you could totally see that my belly is bigger.</p>

<p>I don't think I can feel mine.  It's my first, so I might be slow to pop out.  It's supposed to be above the pubic bone, right?  There is something hard there, but I can't tell if that's my pubic bone or not!  :)  I am definitely showing though.  Just under my belly button I am huge!  Of course I know it's not the baby yet, but my organs are definitely getting pushed up.  It's especially bad at night after I eat.</p>

<p>Okay, after reading this yesterday, I went home last night and tried to tell if I could feel mine. This is my second pregnancy (the first was a loss), but it's definitely there...</p>

<p>Definitely. Maybe grapefruit size? It's super firm, especially when I have to pee. It changes a little through the day. I'm just starting to feel it when I lay on my belly.</p>

<p>DId anyone's stomach muscles bother them?  I am about 9 1/2 wks and off and on for a couple of weeks it feels like I've been doing sit ups (and I definitely haven't been).  It is strange.  Has anyone else had this or have an idea of what it is?  I read that it could be ab muscles pulling apart making room, but it seems to early?  This is my first pregnancy.</p>

It's probably because they are getting ready to separate. I had the muscle separation right around 11 weeks when I was pregnant with my first.</p>
