    Default Location of Baby

    I have a bit of a daft question here, but would be interested to know. In the very early stages of pregnancy, where abouts would the embryo be located in our tummies? Would it be right below our belly buttons lower down or up a bit near or above our belly buttons?

    Just wondering cause I've got no idea!

    It would be below at 8 weeks - your uterus leans outwards - which is why they say to lean forwards with contractions as it works in the same direction as your uterus

    Early in PG bub is nestled right down behind your pelvic bone. Towards the end of the 1st tri, as bub gets bigger, the uterus starts to grow up and out of the pelvis. I don't think it's until around the middle of the PG that the top of the uterus is at your belly button
