When does the uterus lift up from pelvis?


I think my title says what I want to know. I was wondering abt this coz I had my Dr. Appt y day and he was trying to listen to the heartbeat. He initially tried looking for it in my abdomen assuming that my uterus must have lifted up and cudnt find the HB. Then when he moved lower in my pelvis, we were able to listen to the HB. I was wondering about when the uterus should be lifting? and can we feel it when it does?

It rises up above the pubic bone around 12 weeks.......the uterus feels like a hard ridge

Usually around 12 weeks, but everyone is different. I know that personally my uterus sits higher than average and it usually out of my pelvis at 8 weeks. It's funny when I get a new ultrasound tech watching them look for my uterus because it's not where it would be on a typical person

like the person above said at about 12 wks, but if you've had a baby before it's not uncommon for your fundus to be higher sooner.

They say normally around 12 weeks. Mine was pretty high up around 9 weeks, right below my belly button. So I am sure that yours will be moving up shorty, as you are almost 12 weeks.

Thanks!!! For a couple of secs, he got me worried when he cudnt find the HB. I was so relieved to hear it (160bpm).
And I realised both of us have the same EDD. Have u had ur NT scan yet?
