Re: How high is your uterus? Can you feel it?

WOW am I ever glad to see that a lot of people experience this. My midwife was just here this last week and I am 13 weeks, almost 14. When she felt my uterus she was surprised at the height it was at (half way to the belly button) and thought it was more like a 16 week uterus. There was only 1 HB that she could find and I am sure of my cycle. We concluded that it could just be the way the baby implanted and is positioned.

I would absolutely have an US to check b/c I do not think it's 'right where it's supposed to be" but some midwives don't worry about it until after the 20 week mark.
oh my... Although I love babies, and am happy with any I am blessed to have, I truly do not want two at once. We're still adjusting to the thought of this unplanned pregnancy, so to think of TWO babies instead of one.... I just can't phathom that.

I have had a nagging pit-of-my-stomach feeling since the beginning that there might be two in there, but it just doesn't seem possible. The only history of twins in our families is pretty distant. DH's mom's cousin had twins. And my gma's (on my dad's side) sister had twins. Seems unlikely that we'd have them.

I'm going with the whole "my uterus is so big cause it's my 3rd baby" for now and I guess I'll find out at the anatomy scan in 2 mos. Twins is just too much to think about. ... denial anyone?
