am i suppose to feel the hardness of the uterus. let me first say that this is my third pregnancy the first two i miscarried so i worry with this one. this is as far along as i have gotten. also i am over weight so i dont know if that plays into it. anything will help. at least to ease my mind. i have a dr apt monday but my husband is military so they dont do ultrasounds till around 20 weeks unless its an emergency all ill get to do is hear a heartbeat which will be reassuring!

thanks in advance!

I am not sure you might be able to feel it by now. I think I can feel mine but I have a tilted uterus. Also this is my 2nd pregnancy.

good luck

weight will definitely be a factor in being able to feel your uterus. i'm super tiny (116lbs) and at almost 9 weeks I think I can start to feel something, but i think it's too early to tell.

I wouldn't think you would be able to feel the fundus (top of uterus) right now unless you really know what your feeling for..like your dr. who does that probably 20 times a day. Gl with your appt. Monday! I'm sure everything is fine!

remember when a doc feels it at this early stage they actually do a physical exam with their hands and PUSH the uterus up. it wont rise out of the pelvis until about now and just barely, but what i really wanted to say was if you are looking for reassurance, 9 weeks is actually a really good time, after a heartbeat is established the miscarriage rate drops to 2%. I just read that in a pregnancy magazine. try to relax!!! hugs!!!!

Actually baby in uterus doesn't leave your pelvic area/bone until around 11 weeks. I am overweight and I remember when I was 11 weeks if I laid on my side you can feel hardness right about your pubic bone and sometimes even feel a little knot in places which I always believed was the baby. (dont worry though, u cant hurt him/her... they are very protected) I would wait a could weeks and check again.

popping in from sept ddc. you probably won't be able to feel it yet. I just BARELY started to feel mine. It feels like muscle popping up if you feel above your pubic bone. Feel with your palms and sides of your hands while lying down. At 9 weeks, the uterus is still below your pubic bone.

And you may not be able to hear the hb next week. My midwife doesn't check for it before 11 weeks because she says sometimes she can't find it yet at that stage, and then the patient gets worried unnecessarily.

Where are you feeling it?

Like pushing on your belly you can feel it??

I can feel the top of mine... but this is my 7th baby and I know what I am feeling being I have asked the doc before where it is and what it feels like at my appointment.

Its still way down there though.
