  • Depends really, maybe he likes to hang out low. My daughter was really low everyone thought she was a boy.
    Babies are all different so it might just be where he likes to sit.

  • The top of the uterus doesn't generally reach the belly button until about 20 weeks, and then grows about a centimeter up each week thereafter. Your uterus isn't even to your upper belly yet for your baby to be felt there. It will also have a lot to do with this baby's position; he might prefer to hang out facing down or head up with his legs doing all the moving so all of his movement is felt low.

  • I agree with anon :50. I am 21 weeks and I am carrying low too. I go to find out what we are having today. I am super excited!!!! But yeah your uterus slowly moves up as the baby gets bigger, which is when you start showing is when your uterus isn't hidden by your pubic bone anymore and is "spilling over" your pubic bone and moving up into your stomach.
