Feeling a hard "ball" in your stomach at 12 wks Alicia14 Due November 30; 1 child; Ventura, CA, United States 824 posts

I have a friend who is 14 weeks and she said she started feeling a hard ball in her lower stomach around 12 weeks. Well, I am 12 weeks 3 days and I feel nothing. Could my uterus just be positioned differently or what? How many of you ladies could feel this at 12 weeks? My midwife told me if I got worried, that I could come in and she would let me hear the heartbeat. I think I'm gonna do that today!

did she have a tumor or something because my uterus never felt like a hard ball in my stomach. You could slightly feel the top of it later in my second trimester, and as time went on my entire stomach was just hard but at 12 weeks I had no hard ball in there, and Ive had three children.

Maybe she's constipated so badly she's feeling her colon! LOL I don't know but it's nice to know I'm not the abnormal one! LOL

Braxton hicks contractions can start that early but usually not noticbly. Maybe that's what they are?!

The "ball" feeling is the baby. Is your friend pretty skinny?

I could feel a little ball of hardness with my two previous pregnancies, but not until later...probably closer to 20ish weeks. I don't remember really the timeline, but it wasn't 12 weeks. I'm at 12 weeks now and I can feel the top of where my uterus is, kinda, but it's not super defined or anything, yet.
