When baby moves/kicks it is still really, really low in my abdomen. Barely above my pubic area about where low rise jeans would sit. I can feel the top of my uterus which is just below my belly button. Do you guys find that the baby is still pretty low? I just thought since my uterus was this high that maybe the baby would move up a little but it seems to like being down there.
Yes, when I was about the same weeks along as you, I still felt baby kicks/movement very low too, and I remember thinking, shouldn't they be higher up by now? It's just in the past week or so (since about 18.5 weeks) that I started feeling kicks and bigger movements up near my bellybutton. I bet it won't be long for you now.

My daughter was always low so I thought maybe this baby wanted to follow suit! I mean it's so low it seems like it could just fall out! At my last appointment when the nurse tried to find the heart beat she started just below my belly button and I told her the baby was way lower than that.
My uterus is well above my belly button now and I mostly feel movement from baby B up top. It's always on my left side about in line with my belly button. I feel baby A much less frequently, pretty much only when they have a dance party after I eat ice cream. He's quite low and to my right, just above my pubic bone. I know they're moving a lot more than I can feel though because at my ultrasound last week they were going nuts and I couldn't feel a thing.
