Hi im 20weeks and for 3weeks, felt i think the baby, but its realy low, and only on left side, i thought at 20 weeks the baby would of been higher?

Is it normal to feel the baby so low even at 20 weeks? this feels like a muscle spasm, type of feeling.

  • I am almost 26 wks, and still only feel her low. I have felt her higher one time and that was two days ago. Baby is still not very big and has LOTS of room! She'll move! ;)

  • this pregnancy has been so different, my other one was twins, so i felt kicks everwhere, this is only suttle and right near where your ovary would probably be.

  • I'm 28 weeks and mine is low and loves dancing on my bladder and other low areas. Nothing abnormal

  • It's different for different pregnancies. My first, I felt him all over from the beginning (as far as the uterus went, anyway). With this one, I'm 26 weeks and still mostly feel her low (except when I'm lying down, then she moves up a little sometimes); I guess that's just where she likes to be. As long as you're feeling the baby move, everything's probably fine, where you feel it doesn't matter so much.
