    I'm not sure. I'm 19 weeks with my 3rd baby & my baby is below my belly button & I'm pretty sure that's where your uterus should be. My baby moves & kicks anywhere between my belly button & public bone. I'm sure your gp would have said something if it wasn't normal to position the Doppler in that area.

    I'm not sure what you mean? Baby is in a bubble of fluid so will just float around and be in lots of different positions until it grows bigger. Your uterus will be in the same general area than everyone else's at the same gestation.

    Hi Special, my bubs is very low lying as well, at my last ultrasound (19 weeks) she had trouble getting scans of his head and was having to push just above my pelvic bone to try and move his head up, im guessing this is pretty normal as she didnt say otherwise , i am having alot of aches and pains in my hips and sides this week so im hoping this is his moving up.
