  • Yeah...that a lot high...Its should still be behind your pelvic bone maybe a little higher. Mine was at my belly button at 20 weeks.

  • At 11 weeks that does sound a little high. You may be in for twins! GL!

  • Perhaps it is twins. Or it could be from too much fluid. Usually it doesn't reach the bellybutton until 20 weeks. You should call your dr and see what he/she thinks.

  • Don't panic. I have 4 kids. My uterus, probably like yours, was stretched a lot. You are showing faster and bigger because there were previous pregnancies. The most important thing is to begin prenatal care with your doctor. It, of course, can be multiple births, there is always that chance. But, I think it is just your body aware of what is happening and showing signs of previous pregnancies. I was big to begin with, but as the pregnancies progressed, I would always show up the right size or a week ahead (height of the fundus) Anyway, the other thing that happened with the uterus being the home of a previous baby, was that there was plenty of room for the baby to swim around in, and boy, did they get into it! Good luck. I am sure you will be fine.

  • im really thinking its twins because im right with ya i know the more babies you have the bigger you get but with my secound pregnancy i alwasy messured like 2-3 weeks behind and my doctor said it was just because i have small babies.

  • It should still be in the pelvis. You shouldn't be able to measure it yet. The belly button is generally at 20 weeks, so the twins suggestion, if you really are that big already, is not out of the question.
