Does your uterus rise up quicker in subsequent pregnancies?


Hi, i'm on my third pregnancy I'm 5 weeks pregnant and can feel my uterus has popped about an inch or so above my pelvis... I've read this isn't meant to happen until 12 weeks but as this is my third might my body just be adapting quicker?

thanks in advance!

If you lie down flat and gently feel your pelvis/lower abdomen you should be able to feel the top of your uterus.

your uterus is not suppose to go above your pubic bone until 12 weeks. If you do feel something there you should discuss it with your care provider as that can indicate that you are more pregnant then you thought you were or ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids. Even twins at that time do not cause such a significant change in uterine size to cause it to go beyond the pubic bone.

you shouldn't feel anything at this point in your pregnancy. It's not until 12 weeks that it's palpable... As for what it feels like, I'd say a really inflated water balloon... It's still very soft but doesn't have alot of give like the rest of tummy does.

You can feel it earlier than 12 weeks though 12 weeks is the normal time. This is my 5th pregnancy and I've been able to feel mine for a few weeks. My c sections have left keloid scars internal and external so my uterus and the muscles around it have almost no way of holding back ! Thats also probably why I've been feeling movement for over a week.

That said, having a bump at this stage is less uterus and more what the uterus is pushing up and out. The big baby belly will come soon enough...can't wait !
