Yes: Every pregnancy and every body is different. Especially in the first half of pregnancy, you would expect that the enlarging uterus will be "low" on your abdomen. As the pregnancy progresses the fundus (top of uterus) becomes palpable higher above the belly button. This is actually one of the things your doctor will measure when you go in for exams to make sure the baby is growing as expected
