    Hi Girls,

    My little man is very active and always on the move, but i have only ever felt him move very low down. My fundal height is ok as far as i know but baby never seems to go past my belly button, any of you had this with you little ones?

    Im not worried as he doesnt stop moving, just wondering why my little man does not like the top half of my womb lol x

    I think at this stage baby is still quite low down and thats why kicks are down low. My lo is very same movements are really low down.

    I have this too - fundal height is within limitations (2 weeks behind but they are ok with this) and I only ever feel him low. I think he's just a lazy baby!

    I've also been feeling constant low movement, and jsut in the last week or so more high kicks/movement. Doc always says it doesn't mean he's not moving other places, it just is where your body can feel it right now. Also he told me that many mothers feel a lot more low movement in second/third/fourth babies, as the uterus is shaped a little different now and you are move sensitive to movement, so who knows...

    I am the same. Baby kicks all down below. I have a scan last week and the baby is basically stood up inside me so this is why all the movement is lower down. I do get an odd movement to the side of my belly button so I'm guessing that must be a little elbow or hand.

    I'm 25 weeks today (yay!) and last night was the first night baby kicked up higher. Last night and all day today he seems to like kicking to the left of my belly button, but before that it was always down really low. Maybe he flipped in the past few days?

    I measured 27 weeks at my last dr appt (was just 23+5)
