    Default Who can feel their uterus?

    I'm 11+1 and I've been feeling around for my uterus and I can't find I don't even know what I'm looking for.. I feel something abit firm near my belly button to the right n left but I know it should be near pubic bone.... Is it still early. How did u feel your uterus and when?
    Cheers

    Hi ,

    At 12wks with my fourth I could feel it just above my pelvic bone. Here is a quick pic to show approximate size for gestation CLICK.

    At that stage I don't remember feeling much. Just after that stage though I started noticing it was very firm to the touch just above pelvic bone as pp said. I couldn't feel an outline of the womb or anything, just that whole area was firm and that firmness just kept getting bigger and bigger lol

    I can on some occasions when I try really hard and don't move at all. Lol.
    I'm 90% sure that I've felt movement but I'm skeptical.
    I will be 11 wks tomorrow.
    Last time I definitely couldn't feel it but my stomach was a lot harder then and I didn't know I was pregnant til after 12 weeks or any idea what to feel for.

    I didnt really feel it until it was past my belly button, then i could feel the hard ridge which drops off to soft squished intestines. Lol. Now its so high up its hard to feel it, i did find it easier to feel when bub was in breech position.

    I could feel mine very early, but that is only because I have an irritable uterus and had BH since 10 weeks, I could feel it when contracting.

    Yep, I always feel mine, but I really only try first thing in the morning after I wake up, before I've gone to the toilet (the full bladder helps ) I wanna say I felt it from about 8ish weeks, but I can't remember when exactly

    I felt mine from 12-13 weeks which was when I started getting braxton hicks (or what I think they were).
    My uterus would harden up and move outwards and I could definitely see and feel it. It's a really weird feeling!!
    Happened most mornings with a full bladder while I was lying down, and after sex too, haha. I had BH every day from 12ish weeks until 37wks when my boy arrived.

    You usually cant feel it until 12 weeks and will feel it just above pubic bone.
