Hi, i'm 10+4 weeks and at my Mw visit she tried to feel for the uterus and said she feels nothing! is that normal? when do they feel it? She says that at my scan on mon to expect the sonographer to press hard against the abdomen! Has anyone else experienced this? thanks.

I read that the uterus is the size of a grapefruit at this time surely that would be felt? I'm getting worried.

I think in a first pregnancy it is 12 weeks before it can be felt.

yeah I always understood that the uterus would be below the pelvic brim (so still in your groin area) before 12 weeks, so you wouldn't expect to feel it that early. btw even when I was further along in PG, the sonographer pressed hard at times to get a good view.
