I'm 19 weeks, and have been feeling my little guy pushing and kicking far above my belly button. I know your uterus (or the top of your uterus) isn't supposed to be at the belly button until 20 weeks, but I have had undeniable kicks and other movement above my belly button the past few days. Is it possible for them to move that high up before hand?? My belly, and the baby, have measured exactly where I should be every ob visit so far, and I'm wndering whats going on. I've also been feeling what's like braxton hicks contractions, tightening of my uterus, but it seems to almost never stop. Like its tight for 10 minutes at a time and will do this for hours sometimes. Is anyone else experiencing, or has experienced this??? I go to my ob next week and I will definitely be asking. I'm hoping it doesn't mean anything is wrong, or for that matter, that my baby is going to be huge because my daughter was about as big as I can get out (trust me on that) and she was big enough at 8 pounds.
