19 weeks and baby sits very low
Everytime I go for an ultrasound, the tech is amazed at how low our baby boy sits!  They have to keep asking me to pull my pants down further and further!  When I looked in my book, it said that the baby is likely sitting 1-2 inches below my belly button....but ours is sitting like 4 inches below.  

Even when our Dr. does the doppler to hear the heartbeat, she puts the probe just below my belly button and then has to keep moving it down before she hears the heartbeat.

Does anyone else's baby sit this low?

I am 19 weeks too, and my baby girl goes down low sometimes as well, she is on the constant move. The ultrasound I had a few days ago showed her pretty low, where as the one I had about 4 weeks ago showed her up high doing a handstand LOL.
Usually when she is low though I know it, I get back pain and some cervical pain. It shouldn't be a problem though and he may move some.

According to my Dr and other medical resources it is not until 20 weeks before the baby reaches the naval, so at this point it would be bellow the belly button. My baby's heart beat has always been found in the bottom, right hand side of my abdomen. I am 24w4d. She is also already in a head down position.

I went today and they found my baby's heartbeat low in my abdomen.  I am carrying the baby lower than most and she is till in a breech position.  I am 29w4d.  When she kicks she kicks right square on my bladder and like Leanna said it sometimes gives me cervical pain.  She is healthy though.  =)  When the nurse went to find her heartbeat today she plowed the doppler and it made a big thump noise....  LOL
