Our expert says:
Usually the baby is at the belly-button level at about 20 weeks and then 1cm above the belly button for every week after that until about 26 weeks. At 38 weeks it is at its highest and then starts descending as the baby drops into the pelvis. Some women may have a wider pelvis and may carry the baby "low". The best way to determine whether the baby is growing as it should is to do a sonar.
