  • Depends on how far along you are. Feel from your pubic bone up. You should be able to feel the top of your uterus. The baby is the hardest thing in your uterus.

  • I think only doctors know...lol. I really think you have to be trained to find it. Otherwise you think that what you feel isn't it. I am preg with my third and until I start to show I can't really find it. You would think that 3 times and I would have figured it out. I am 31 weeks and to me the baby feels like he is sideways, but the doctor said today he is head down...so how you feel for the baby I haven't a clue.
