It all depends. For first pregnancies or for even some women it will be far lower than those who have had several kiddos. They really don't start to measure that until 20 weeks. Before then it is more about uterus just doing what it is going to do than any reflection of baby. Fluids could be higher, etc.

What has you wondering?

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

It says a couple inches below your belly button. But at my ultrasound this week at 13 w the baby's head was down towards my pubic bone and the feet were just below my to belly button. So I think our uterus' are a bit bigger. I just felt him again and it was just below my belly button, so it very well could be the baby at this point that your feeling. I was shocked when she told me where he was at. Made it feel more real.
*as I get another movement lol. Baby either loves my cucumbers I'm eating or hates me for eating them)

You'd think by my 3rd I would know by now, but I keep wondering the same thing. I was told at my 11 w appt. that I may have an anterior placenta, which I thought might be keeping me from feeling baby. But lately I've been having feelings a few inches under my belly button and thought it was too high, too, LOL... Now I'm really going to try to pay attention. Good question!
