Where Is Your Pubic Bone

All the books I read and everybody I talk to says that by 12 weeks you should be able to feel your uterus above your pubic bone......I'm 12 and a half weeks and I can't feel anything below my belly button and I have no idea where my pubic bone is. Does anybody know where it is or can anybody around how far along I am feel their uterus yet?

It's right on your bikini line. :o)

Thanks tiffani, I guess I thought the bump would be higher up than that by now, it seems like everybody I talk to their bump is between their belly b___ton and bikini line, and all the online pictures the bump is a lot farther up than mine. I guess I am just going to show late!

Your uterus isn't up to your belly-b___ton until 20 weeks. And most people don't know how to palpate (feel) a uterus from the outside,so don't worry if you can't feel it esp. this early. The top of your uterus is only at the pubic hair line or near to it now. I know--most women don't want to believe that. My friend insits that she felt her baby move at about 12 weeks. She doesn't understand that movement up that high is not from the baby. After 20 weeks the uterus grows one cm higher every week. best to you!

Hi Alex, if you lie completely flat on your back on your bed you might be able to see your very small bump :)

Thanks you all that helps a bunch!! I was worried it wasn't growing or something, but I do have a little bump way down there so I guess everything is okay! I have my next dr appointment in 2 days, so I should get to hear the heartbeat then. Thanks again!!
