    So this is kinda weird but for the past few days I can feel my lil guy moving prob. 2-3 inches above my belly button ? I'm currently 20 weeks 4 days and everything I read and always known is that at the 20 week mark they are at your belly button level . It's making me wonder if he is just gonna be a big baby and is long or if I'm just feeling it when he is stretching out lol . anyone else feeling their LO's higher than expected ? Just curious hope everyone is having a great day : )

    I can't say anything about feeling baby really high, all my LO's movement is super low, like right above my pubic bone. I feel him moving all the time, but rarely up high. It makes me wonder if he's still transverse.

    Maybe your baby is already head down and stretching his little legs up?

    That's the weird part cause I normally only feel Him really low too - I'm thinking he must have either flipped around ( he was breech at my last u/s ) or maybe was stretching out lol . It's funny too cause since I posted this I haven't felt him that high again ; )
