Can anyone else feel their fundus?

My midwife taught me how to find my fundus with my 2nd pregnancy (just as something fun to do)

I swear I feel it! I'm 7wks 3 days

7 weeks and 4 days here and nothing, i try but i think i carry really far back, i did with my last pregnancy and i couldn't feel anything until like 13 weeks. i thought because this is my second and they were really close that things would happen earlier, but so far it's following the same timeline.

Yes. I'm a little over 9 weeks though. It's about two finger widths above my pubic bone.

Re: Can anyone else feel their fundus?

If you gently push above your pubic bone, you may feel a "hardness" that wasn't there before. If you move up, millimeter by millimeter, you can feel where it ends, typically.

Your uterus will move slightly to the right when your bladder is full, and a little to the left when it's empty. I've noticed mine is easier to feel when my bladder is full.

Re: Can anyone else feel their fundus?

It is generally within 4 cm, plus or minus, of your gestational age in weeks. So, if you are 12 weeks your uterus could be 8 cm or 16 cm and that is still considered normal.
