Just curious if anyone can feel their uterus yet. Might be a dumb question but sometimes I can't and I worry because of my recent mc. I can't remember when I could with my son 8 years ago but I didnt show until way late. I have an appt Tuesday and hope I can hear the hb to ease my mind.

I feel a harder spot above my belly button...don't know if that's my uterus or not, but something's going on in there because I swear my stomach is bigger every day!
I was really worried until I heard the hb too- luckily you only have a few more days to wait!

At 10 weeks your uterus is only just beginning to rise up out of the pelvic area. If you can feel it at all, it would be located just above your pubic bone.

Okay thanks. That's what I thought and what I feel. Sometimes when I'm laying down though I feel it less. I feel like a first time mom, it's been so long!

It's funny how the uterus is really just above the pubic bone at this point, but I'm all belly already! Seriously, why is it all up in the gut if the action is down in the pelvis!?! I feel crazy huge! However, his is my second, so maybe my body's just saying "ah ha, we know where this is going, so lets just give up trying to hold it all in!!"

My belly is getting huge and it's my first. It's not my uterus, it's just that my uterus is pushing everything else UP so I have a bulge above my belly button (at least that's what THINK is going on --- what do I know???). I look like I have been packing on the donuts! My whole mid section just looks and feels big and swollen.

I'm around 14 weeks now, and I had some extra pounds on before I got pg, so I still just look pudgy but when I lay down I feel that above my pelvis is a more solid bump than the rest (lol!)
