Ok..new silly question :)

Anyone here tried to feel for their uterus? If so, have you found it? describe :)

I honestly don't feel anything! I know I'm growing between my hip bones because a pair of jeans don't fit anymore but hey, I'm also eating a bit more than before and I tend to pooch faster than most. has anyone here told their moms about being pg yet? I plan on telling mine this Sunday. I am so worried that I will hear devastating news 4days later at my U/S. We waited until we heard the HB w/ DS but the way our schedules are now this is the best time to tell my mom who lives out of town. Plus, as my friend noted, if God forbid something went wrong then I would want my mom to know I was pg all along.

So , obsess with me ladies. I'm go crazy here!

I told my mom when I found out. She's a huge emotional support for me. Not telling her was bad for me however I looked at it. If I didn't tell her and everything fell apart she would never have had the chance to enjoy the idea. And I wouldn't want to not have her for support in that situation either. Telling her seemed positive either way.

The more my nausea increases the more comfortable I feel that everything is ok. Today I'm getting everything together for her gift tomorrow. I cannot wait until I tell her!

Wannapeanut- I'm 10 weeks today and definitely feel different in my uterus area. Every time I bend over, it's noticeable that that area is harder, and I've had a lot of twinges in the past two weeks. We told all of our parents as soon as we knew... I wanted the support either way. My nausea hasn't started to subside quite yet but I have had more cravings lately... mostly salty chips, cheese sticks, and omg applesauce!! I can't get enough of anything apple. Good luck at your ultrasound! My 11 week is May 20th and I can't wait!

You are craving what i"m craving haha..that is bizarre! except I love APPLEBUTTER..omg I can't get enough of that on bread haha

Two days ago I felt like I had major tummy cramps..definitely felt like stomach ache but then I wondered if maybe it was misplaced from growing pains. Who knows. I'm 8wks today and I honestly can't tell anything different for my uterus. I hear it comes up out of the pelvic area at 12wks so you are so much closer than I am. Maybe in 2wks I will feel the same too.

I tried on this dress today thinking it would hide the bump..um not quite! And it shocked me because at 4wks I had flat abs and a 2pack! lol

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Wannapeanut, our bumps look very similar! I'm also 8 weeks tomorrow :) Some of my coworkers noticed on Friday because I had a more form fitting shirt on, and I usually have a very flat stomach with abs. But not anymore! But I couldn't be happier to show off that bump :)

How is everyone feeling? I'm not having any cravings yet, just trying not to puke. I find that if I eat small meals throughout the day, I don't get nauseous. But I'm definitely sup tired! And doc says my symptoms may be double because of the twins, so I should sleep and eat twice as much. It's so hard to eat an extra 600 calories a day! But I'm trying :)

Hi Ladies! i hope everyone had a great Mother's day :D

My mom is over the moon.. and bawled like a baby hehe. I gave her a onesie that says "My First Christmas" and she just couldn't believe it ! I really took her by surprise. I was perfect!

Ok..how's everyone feeling today? I found something new to obsess about. My uterus! Who is feeling a hard ball right now? I am NOT. I've read at 8wks that its still behind the pubic bone SO if that's the case I shouldn't right? I mean I can push down between my hip bones to my pelvis and it feels soft :( I'm starting to worry!

I still have PG symptoms :

- tender BB's
- nausea..with everything
- constantly thirsty
- need to pee all the time
- exhaustion
- heartburn

That's one thing about forums. Its alot of great info but you start to compare your body w/ someone else's. Argh. :roll: So dare I ask..is anyone else feeling a hard grapefruit size bump like the books say???

Wannapeanut: I am pretty far along and even though I have noticed twinges and pulling sensation down there, my uterus does not feel hard. What book did you read that said that you would feel this? I was 5'2 100 pounds pre pregnancy, so super tiny, and I have noticed my tummy has gotten bigger, but not hard at all. I wouldn't worry about it.

P.S. I had to buy maternity pants over the weekend and I wish I would have learnt about them a looong time ago. They are wonderful and I don't ever want to stop wearing them!!

I've read it on BabyCenter.com forums. Various women saying it feels like a grapefruit. I"m thinking 'isn't that kinda hard for a baby?!" lol
and yes, maternity pants are the BOMB! They are sooo comfy when you find the right fit!

Good morning ladies. Well my nausea seems to have slowly subsided since Sunday. I was able to eat dinner and lunch w/ out feeling like I'm gonna hurl. I guess that's a good thing huh? I also seem to have less bloating and that's probably because I haven't been eating CHEESE like its going out of style LOL

My next u/s is Thursday...When is everyone else due to go see their baby?! :)

I go on Monday for my 11-12 week scan! Cannot wait!! Haven't had an ultrasound since 6w4d. I'm actually scheduling a meeting as we speak to tell my boss I'm pregnant because he'll be out of town the rest of the week and we want to "make it public" on Monday after the ultrasound, but since I'm friends with a lot of the people I work with, I want him to hear it from me first. Suddenly very nervous!!
