..carrying high⬆ or low⬇???

*please see attached picture*

I've been watching this belly of mine grow for a few weeks now, and I've been asked (by people who haven't seen it) if I was carrying high or low... and I don't know?! it's round, hard, and I've been feeling a tiny little "tickle" feeling above my pubic bone/hair line.. no where near my belly button.

I've been thinking that the baby was an inch or so below my button & if that's the case, what have I been feeling?
I guess I'm just confused as to:
1) am I carrying high or low..?
2) where is my baby sitting right now..? my belly button isn't "sticking out" obviously, but it's NOT as deep as it used to be, at all!!!

excuse my ftm moment, but I'm lost!! lol thanks for reading, please see attached picture, and I've also uploaded it to my profile just in case you can't see it!
thank you ladies, keep us in your prayers, it's 2:15 a.m. & we have an appointment to see the specialist about my cervix today at 1:00 p.m. - pray for us!!!!! ((((: ❤

I'd guess low? But I think people make that call a little later on with more of a bump. I'm FTM too
I'm sending your cervix positive thoughts

I could see how it could be high. Ask the nurse at the appointment

Your definitely going to be carrying high. Once your in the 30s weeks and drop you'll see the huge difference of carrying high to low. Best wishes hun

I'm so confused haha & it's not a scar - just an indention where I was sitting kind of slouched over! lol sure do miss my 6-pack haha! totally worth it though!! ((: my belly has always done that though.. so weird!

& I feel like he/she is going to be high, but being a ftm I felt so clueless lol thank you!!

Oh lol... yea... they generally move but since you are early on baby will more than likely get higher than drop... I carried my other one low... and this one likes to bounce her head on my bladder (I have to wear a panty liner!) and I've carried her low from the beginning and she has dropped even lower...

oh gosh! I'm already peeing every 20 minutes, I can't imagine what it's going to be like later.. high or low!! lol - I just get this tickly feeling above my pubic bone every now & then, very faint, so I kept thinking.. IF that's the baby way down there, why in the world is my belly so big further up?!! lol

Yes I'm having a boy and belly literally looks like a basketball. I'm 35 weeks and its still high up. He'll drop by my 37th weeks I guess

From the picture is say your carrying high... that's how my belly looked with my first and by 24 weeks she was up in my ribs... if you look at my pictures from 21 weeks this time there is a lot of space between bump and boobs. Makes breathing easier but kills your hips and pubic bone

I'd say your carrying high

You definitely carrying high

I'm 22 weeks & definitely carrying low-constant pressure in my pubic/pelvic region & I feel most of my little boy's movement in the lower tummy area, just above my pubic bone. Ultrasound tech had a heck of a time getting good images of his brain at my 3D scan because he's tucked so low. I'm honestly looking forward to when/if he shifts higher-it would be a change in the discomfort at least! Haha!

Also-if you're still in the first half of pregnancy, your uterus extends to right around your belly button area-so for most of your pregnancy, the baby is low in your body, even if you aren't technically carrying low
