need advice ladies

ok well I found out i am pregnant on wednesday but I dont know how far as i dont have periods etc anyway I have been feelings flutters and today I had a sharp kick these feel just like my first daughter did . I just dont see how I could be far enough to feel these as surely i would have felt something b4 today ? I also am mega tired and boobs are really sore plus I have constant lower back ache. i cant remember how many weeks I was when I felt my daughter move wat do you think can these flutters and sharp kick be anything else? (I dont think its wind as i never feel like this unless im preg and I dont have wind) God Im so confused

    The first I felt her at 18 weeks , the second and this one I have started feeling them at 12 weeks.



    your doctor should palpate - have you tried having a feel yet? your uterus shifts out of the pelvis at 12 weeks or so so if that can be felt that should give you an indication.



    I was peeing loads up unt this happened so if your still peeing a lot then that could make you pre 12 weeks. Als omy boobs hav settled down and are not as sore

    My friend is a final year med student and he tells me that the uterus should feel smooth and firm, and I was asking him when I was 12 weeks and he said it would be about the size of a mans fist.



    Having said that..I couldn't find anything and got scared of poking around.. couldn't feel anything but podge!

    you need to lie down flat on your back - I can feel like its very firm like ridge and I am 14 weeks tomorrow and the edge of it is about 2 inches above my pubic bone start from the bone and move upwards - if you press quite firmly you should feel it it goes from very firm to soft where it ends - I have some flab to get through too! LOL

    have you had the midwife palpate you yet? they get right on in there pushing hard! it wont do any harm.

    Nope.. I was just 12 weeks when I saw her - she did push quite firmly with the doppler..but nowhere near as firmly as the scanner guy did to make baby wiggle so he could measure baby! That on a full bladder was not fun!!!



    Tried poking a bit harder earlier but still only feel podge!
