I'm 9 weeks today. ONE more week until my appointment. I am beginning to feel really nervous. Nothing is wrong but I just don't feel or think of myself as pregnant most of the time. I think I'll cry when I hear the heartbeat. My midwife doesn't have an ultrasound machine.
I have a food baby after eating and not pooping but no real bump.

I am, and I know its mostly bloat especially when It gets bigger throughout the daylol, but I always have a bump in the morning when I first wake up that never goes away, and gets a little bigger each week. Sounds like a baby bump, but I still cant really feel my uterus yet. However every time I find the hb on my doppler its like 2-3 in above my pubic bone, so I know my uterus is too. Even if its all from bloat, I always look pregnant so I guess thats good enough for me! Lol just can't wait to have that hard unmistakable baby bump ;)

Just in case some of you didn't know, find a college that offers training for ultrasound techs. They will alot of times do free ultrasounds (if they aren't busy) since it is training for them. Ours does it. But they are all booked up this month. -_-

Ughh I just looked at pictures of myself from my last pregnancy. I was tiny in the beginning and HUGE at the end. I gained 50lbs. I'm so depressed thinking about it. I really need to keep my weight in check.

I did the same thing! My daughter looked at them and said "Who's that girl?" I was like "That's me!!! And that *points to belly* was you!" Ugh, man I looked so young and thin. Dang it.

I have been able to feel my uterus at or above my pubic bone since 8 weeks...... Lol. And now it's sticking out above. I never really bloated and was actually told how skinny I looked. Lol. All of a sudden on Tuesday I can't button any pants and I have a lower pooch. Lol. Out of nowhere...

Sometimes I get so bloated that I look like I had a whole turkey for dinner. I hate it cause some people are like you're gaining weight fast and I'm like no I'm actually losing weight and then they look at me like yeah right. Makes me mad lol!

I hardly have any symptoms. There are parts of the day where I would forget that I'm pregnant lol.

Dumb question? How do you feel your uterus? I don't know what to feel for or where to.

I remember with my son it felt really hard like a rock in my belly lol the what to expect book says you should be able to feel it right above your pubic bone by 13 weeks. But I think mine is higher than that cuz of where I find the heartbeat. Maybe cuz its my second baby Idk lol but it would be in between your pubic bone and belly button, most likely closer to your pubic bone.

My ob said that it was indeed my uterus and that subsequent pregnancies can change your body faster. I could feel mine at first if I was laying on my back and press in right at your pubic bone. Now I can feel it when I'm standing too... And it does feel hard.

Lol. It was funny because my ob was looking so low for the hb but he went up a few inches and found it there. :)
