Im 15 weeks pregnant but my stomach is still pretty soft?


Im 15 weeks pregnant but my stomach is still pretty soft?
Im 15 weeks pregnant and i was wondering if it was normal to still have a fairly soft stomach. during the day my belly seems to be harder and rounder/bigger than it is when i wake up in the morning and i notice that when im sitting or laying down my belly feels soft, like belly fat only, is that normal? When i got pregnant i weighed about 160 and im 5'4 tall. also ive tried finding my uterus but i dont know what it feels like haha any help? and the last thing is i dont have a line going from my belly button down yet...is this bad?

please be nices that my first post

I'm 14 weeks, and mine's still extremely soft. I don't think you get the hardening of your belly for a few more weeks... not that I'd know from experience, as this is our first.

PLUS that line going from your belly button comes I think after 20 weeks, but it all depends on the woman who's pregnant. Probably just like the soft belly thing.
Every pregnancy is different.

Don't worry, soon enough you'll feel bubs kicking and it'll be amazing, and you'll forget your soft belly and no line.

for me... my uterus is about an inch or two below my belly button, and it just feels like ... well to be honest that I've eaten too much and I can feel something in there...lol
I don't know how to explain it really, it's kind of a cool sensation.
I can feel it most when I"m falling asleep (because I sleep on my belly for now) and I can definately feel it then.


btw, welcome to the forums!

I really didn't notice my stomach to be hard most of the time until I was about 28 weeks. Still, sometimes my stomach will be soft in the mornings. Everyone is different though.

Mine still felt and looked like fat at 15 weeks, it's only firmed up now it's grown a bit more in the past week or 2. At 15 weeks your bump is still mainly baby making space by shoving everything else up rather than baby itself (mine was still very low down when midwife checked heartbeat at 16 weeks).

Oh, and welcome along if this is your first post

Welcome!

I'm in the same boat - so I'd say it's probably pretty normal. Your fundus is probably a couple of inches below your belly button. Try sweeping your fingers very gently over the area and you might feel a very slight curve. That's how I found it!

welcome! I am 17 weeks and mine has just started to get harder over the last week but is still fairly soft. I find I can feel my uterus as around the top of my pubic bone its starts to feel hard? I havent got a line, but a very hairy belly! not so attractive lol.

How have you found your pregnancy so far? much sickness?

Mine is getting noticeably harder the past week too (even when lying flat on my back). So 15 weeks is still pretty early. Also probably depends what your stomach was like before pregnancy (mine was pretty flat).

No line here either, but don't think those tend to come until 3rd trimester...
