  • Not necessarily. Just because your uterus is at your belly button doesn't mean your baby is necessarily up there. S/he might like hanging out towards the bottom, or that could be where their little feet are. Give it to about 30 weeks and you'll be wishing it was just in your lower abdomen :) Congratulations!

  • Well the baby could just be low and that's why you feel movement that low....I've carried my baby low through my whole pregnancy and he's always moving around alot below my belly button :)
