Uterus Moving Out of Pelvis??????


Hi Everyone, I'm 11 weeks tomorrow and know my uterus should be moving out of my pelvis in the next few weeks, does anybody know if it moves out exactly at 12 weeks or is it different for everyone else and also do you feel anything or notice it happening and once it has happened can you see or feel it.

I'm just curious really.

Mine moved up during week 12, there was nothing to feel last Monday when I went for the scan at 11w 6 but it was there by Thursday or so. I had a lot of cramping the day and evening after my scan and the following day, maybe that was it?

Mine had moved up by 10 + 3, docs thought it might be twins as it had moved so early! just the one there though! Depends on each person i think, couldn't tell you how it feels as i've had so many pains and things i don't know which was for what!!! x x x

Hiya,

Im nearly 17 weeks, and only when I need a wee can I feel my uterus at all - it doesnt just pop up like you'd imagine it does! Its a bit confusing really because you'd think it would!! I'd sit back and be patient. I dont have a bump or anything hun
You do feel a lot of stretching at around your time though. You might have some pain, but a lot of girls dont feel anything.

Good luck with it all xxxxx

The uterus doesnt so much as move, as just gets big enough to peak out the confines of the pelvis.

When the doctor or midwife feels your tummy, they can only feel things that are in the abdomen. Things that are in the pelvis are hidden behind the pelvic bones. (Which is why women need an internal examination to feel the uterus when they arent pregnant).

So once the uterus is big enough to have its top bit above the pelvic brim, they can start to feel it by examining your abdomen. Usually ~12 weeks.

I think these pages are quite useful as they should pictures of the uterus as well as the baby:

go back or forward for different weeks.

hope that helps x

Thanks everyone - was just curious as I wasn't sure if it was something that you notice or if it just happens I guess I will just have to wait and see. Army wife I'm like you I probably wont even notice cause I have so many pains and aches .

Loo the link was brilliant thanks a mill.

Have my scan next week too, so I should see a lot more then cause I'm just so nosey I love to know everything

Ummm... My doctor felt my uterus through my abdomen, not internally. She was pressing a couple of inches above my pelvic bone and my uterus has always been there, as far as I know, based on my pains and such. When she felt for my uterus she said that I was 9-10 weeks, then after seeing the size of my baby, she said it was possible that I was only 8 weeks. Is my uterus bigger than others'?
