Fundal height : As a rule of thumb 20 weeks is at the belly button so 17 weeks should be about 3 cm below the belly button but it is not exact

My uterus is still 3 inches below my belly button at 17 weeks pregnant. Is this normal?

Most likely: In general, the uterus reaches the belly button @ about 20 weeks. At 17 weeks it is about the width of 3 fingers below the belly button. Let your OB know of your concerns at your next visit. If she is also concerned, she will probably do an ultrasound. I stress the term "in general" since these are just rough guidelines.
