Why Would I Measure Farther Along?

Dear Midwife,
Everything I have read states that around 16-17 weeks I should be able to feel my uterus just below my belly button. However, at my last appointment, my OB stated that my uterus was already at my belly button and I am suppose to only be 13 weeks. Does this mean that I am further along or my body is just different from the norm?

My due date is 09/12.

Thank you.
