Is that how it works? I have noticed for the past several weeks, that my uterus seems to be right below my belly button. It hasnt seemed to go any further up, but has popped out alot. I can feel the baby alot now and all that... Is that normally how it works? Or am I a wierdo?

That's my pattern too, but everyone carries differently. It's why I'm barely showing at 21 weeks.

That's normal for me too, but it will keep moving up too. By the end your baby will be basically in your ribs (my ds liked to brace his heel against my rib cage on the right - nice). I wonder if I can find the picture again, there's a fascinating picture that shows where all of your organs go when you're full term. It's crazy to see everything displaced! I'll try to find it and post it if I do.

Thanks for posting this! I'm pooching out on the bottom...but just barley starting to get a bump from top to bottom.......and at nearly 6 months just want to be SHOWING. I'm in maternity clothes (but then again can't wear things tight normally) so have been in them since close to 3 months....<br><br>
I think soon our babies will be growing upward.....and outward! I'm tall too which the midwife said last night doesn't help the cause <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
