    Default When could you first feel your uterus?

    Ok I'm not stressing about this 'cos I know we are all different, but I can't for the life of me feel my uterus when I'm lying down yet. Interested to know when others could first feel it and what it feels like. Thanks!

    Around 14 weeks for me - felt like a hardened lump (kinda like a tennis ball feel).

    Once you have the doctor prodding you, you will know how to feel it.

    Best wishes

    My dr suggested the best way to feel it early on is to lie on your tummy with a pillow under your tummy...I did that at about week 12 and could feel something hard...

    I think about 20 weeks?? Not til there was a definite bulge. My dr told me she couldn't feel it on her first child either - so dont feel paranoid if you cant feel it at all.
