Baby REALLY Low!

I am 19 weeks pregnant with our second and found out she is a GIRL! We are THRILLED having 6 nephews & a son of our own.

But I notice when I feel her move, she is RIGHT above my pelvic bone. I don't remember with my son him being so low. Is this normal? I'm not having any pain or anything, just seems odd for her to be so low.

  • my last two babies heads were on my left pelvic floor and it was extremely painful! Usually when your that far along they hang out down there. I'm 35wks and this lil man is KILLING ME. I have to sleep in a recliner! :(

  • With you only being 16 weeks, yes this would most likely be normal. Your uterus is not even to your belly button yet. Where you feel movement will also depends on where the placenta is at, so it might be high up so you don't feel anything there.

  • My second was a girl and I stood on my feet alot. I noticed her being low very early and my pelvis bones ached like crazy. But i was fine.

  • My baby girl was pretty low for most of the pregnancy, I would say that's perfectly normal even though its uncomfortable and perhaps painful sometimes.

    I am actually 19 weeks, just wasn't this low with my first.
