Yes.: 5 months is about 20wks, so the top of the uterus is only at the level of your belly button. See how you measure at the subsequent appointments as you proceed to 24wks, 28wks, 32wks, etc. Don't forget that it's the size of the uterus that gets measured, not how much belly you have. Good luck. ...Read more
