Hi, im 19weeks pregnant and just wondereing where abouts i should be feeling baby move at the moment because it always seems quite low is this normal keep getting paranoide its not growing properley or something??
With my daughter i felt her first kicks at 16 weeks & as she grew she liked to stay under my ribs as close to my heart as possible. With my son, i started feeling him at 15 weeks & now that im 25 weeks he likes to kick me in the sides. He lays sideways & just pushes with all his might! You can see the knots in my side as he's pushing out. Looks like i have an alien in there. But in the beginning when your uterus is not above your belly button yet it is common to feel them low. That's the only space they have. Nothing wrong with that! Anywhere they can reach is normal. Before long every inch of your abdomin (abdomen) will be the baby's & you'll feel him or her everywhere!
at 19 weeks your uterus isn't even at your belly button yet so any movement you feel will be VERY low. Look up "fundal height" that will give you diagrams of how high your uterus is and where you could have feelings from movement.
